Pony Corral / Re: What is going on with G1 sales?
« on: April 06, 2024, 03:54:16 AM »
There’s a seller from Europe that’s listing shipping to the USA for one pony is $100. $100!  One pony!  And I don’t even think it’s insured.

The cheapest shipping from Germany to the US with insurance is $52.
And there are definitely countries in Europe with more expensive shipping rates (like France for example)
So it’s not that unrealistic.
From the US to Germany I have seen prices anywhere between $20 and $70

Shipping is insane!
I already spent a fortune in the last month just for shipping things from the US to me in Germany :(
And it’s not always EBay international shipping program that is the most expensive. I now bought a few things from the US and the EBay Program was less expensive than Fiirst Class Mail.
And I have to say they are pretty accommodating when there are damaging while shipping.
I am always so so happy when US sellers on eBay make up special listings for us international buyers so we can save on shipping costs.

It’s definitely not mold, it smelled like nothing  :lol: Maybe just dirt because it came off really quickly and it didn’t affect the plastic in any way.
Maybe it’s better not to think about what it could be :blink:  :lol:

Oh that’s a great site, thank you so much!

Also the idea with the nail polish is a good one! Never thought of that :)
I already opened her and the weight looks pretty good, not really rusted. But she had a lot of nasty black stuff inside so I am not sure if it was from the weight or if it was something else  :lol: On the outside she looks great!

My first ponies were all made in Italy.
I have to check my Posey, you said there are also different ones? Like different tulips? Didn’t know that!

That is interesting! I am quite sure my childhood Italian Cherries Jubilee came in the same set like Bow Tie and Applejack in the shy pose. These were my first ponies and they were bought in the same store at the same time. Does this make sense?

Hello :wave:

I am not really into adult seaponies so I don’t have an idea of how much they are worth right now.
Could anybody tell me what price Italian Seaspray with her shell (suction cup missing) and brush and comb would be fair?

Thank you :)

Also, do you keep the tail weight? Or do you take it out and replace it? With what? It’s my first time cleaning an adult seapony so any advice would be awesome :)

Hello pony peeps :hiya:
I am looking for some accessories for the Dance‘n‘Prance ponies:

Swinger‘s hair clip and earrings
Twirler‘s earrings :)

Would be happy if someone would have any for sale
Thank you!

Also backcards of any US ponies would be amazing!!

Oh that’s a good one! Curious for the answers :coffee:
Because I can’t decide between Polaris and Aurora!
I am not a fan of the Tootsie Pose so the other two don’t count for me :blush:

Pony Corral / Re: Hair is falling apart…

Oh no! That sounds so sad  :( I am sorry that happened to you, too!

I think Barnacle and Huggy Tails have the same hair color so it makes sense that it happens to the red and orange tones.
My Huggy Tails now has only the white hair on her tail left! That color came out silky again after my washing! Strange :lol:

I really hope rehairing will be easy, I think I just have to loosen the feet. Hopefully I got the right hair color. Should be Firebird from Dollyhair, but I don’t have any to compare.

I'm sorry to hear it. :( :hug:

Thank you so much! I hope I found the right color of doll hair to retail her  :(. I always wanted her because of her bright colors

Wow! I never heard that could happen  :blink:
It is Huggy Tails with these bright neon orange hair and it looked a bit faded on parts so maybe sunlight is a good point?
I really hope rehairing her tail won’t be a big thing :lol:

Pony Corral / Re: Getting yellow plastic bubbles clear again?
« on: August 16, 2023, 06:58:28 AM »
I've often wondered if Retr0Brite would work on plastic bubbles. It's for ABS plastic so maybe not.

The only thing I know would work is using a peroxide paste and then letting it sit in the sun, but that would harm the pony inside and the card.

Thank you! Yes, that is what I thought, too. Everything would harm the pony inside the bubble aswell  :(

Pony Corral / Hair is falling apart…

Hello everyone :)

I just got a Fairy Tails bird in the Mail and started to wash her enthusiastically with warm water and mild soap as I always do with new ponies or birds…and just as I started to detangle the tail the hair just fell apart :blink: I mean it just fall into tiniest pieces of hair in my hands.
Does anyone ever had this before? I never had problems with washing pony hair? Water wasn’t hot and soap was the same one I used on tons of ponies before…
She definitely needs a rehair for her tail now  :lol:

Pony Corral / Re: Ponies rattle when shaken - should I be concerned?

They tail washer of my childhood Baby Cuddles came loose just from playing, too. Sometimes with brushing the tail popped out with its metal part that’s around the hair but I always just put it back inside and everything was fine. Somehow I thought her rattling matches her because she now was like a little Baby Rattle in her Buggy :biggrin:
