I went to the Meijer closest to me and they had not only the twinkle eye set but also multiples of the Posey set, and a whole bunch of the G5 toys.  It was a huge pony jackpot!  Wow, those TE's look great in person  :cool:  If anyone wants me to try picking up any of these Basic Fun ponies for you send me a PM.

Apparently the online store The Toy Shoppe Northport has two of them in stock (Sweet Stuff & Skyrocket). I've never ordered from them, but the prices + shipping are probably going to be better options than Ebay for anyone who does not live near any Cracker Barrels or Meijers.

I'm a bit annoyed Amazon.com hasn't picked them up yet, since Sky Rocket is on my sister's Christmas List and the ebay scalpers plus import duty is making it an impossible quest right now. How well distributed are these girls? It sounds like they're a bit hit and miss still, in which case maybe I will just have to give up.

They're not in the UK yet unfortunately. Probably won't be till the spring. If of course the world hasn't ended by then...;)

Same. I wonder why they aren't?

Oh, I also hope they will be available through amazon, soon. Well amazon in Europe, I can´t afford them from the US with the high shipping costs, utopic ebay prices and custom charges... I already have the originals in MOC, but I love those Basic Fun variants, too =)

Hey guys, I'm compiling a list of where the Twinkle Eye ponies are sold--and I have found a couple online stores!  They're mostly small, independent toy stores.

So I would recommend checking your local non-chain toy stores; most of them don't sell goods online, so the Twinkle Eyes might be there and you'd never realize!  Also, even if they don't carry them now, they might order them if you ask . . . It's at least worth trying. :)

But yeah, here are some places selling them:

https://heckyeahponyscans.tumblr.com/post/669510214966460416

IN PERSON:

Blain’s Farm & Fleet
Meijer
Cracker Barrel
Canadian Toys R Us
maybe The Paper Store?? (unconfirmed)

ONLINE:

eBay obviously
Cat ‘n Mouse Toys and Games
Tahoe Toys & Treasures
Wigwam’s Toys (UK store) - Not listed yet, but they’ve carried every previous Basic Fun line so they're a good bet
Five Little Diamonds (UK) - Has listed the Twinkle Eyes but they aren't in stock yet. They also reserve them for people . . . I'm guessing that means contacting them via Facebook or website to let them know which ponies you want?  And then they contact you when they arrive?  Just guessing

The ones in the second list can be ordered online. :)  Much cheaper than eBay.

(Some of them may not be in stock currently, but just keep an eye on the pages . . . They'll restock eventually and then you can nab them.
 ^_~)

Edit:  Also if anyone is still looking for Tootsie's set Tahoe's Treasures has those as well.

Thanks so much for the links, LM! Can definitely confirm I've found the Tootsie set at local toy stores, I'm hoping they'll have the Twinkle Eyes as well so I'm holding off for now.

Just got an update on TE's from Basic Fun!

"
While Target has been our biggest supporter over the past few years, they have removed the line from their Retro area in toys for the time being.  We are working with them to reinstate in the future.

For Fall 2021 - we have the following planned for stores shipping now:

Fall 2021               35250    My Little Pony Retro Classic Rainbow Ponies
                              Wave 4

                35293    Sky Rocket
                35296    Fizzy
                35297    Sweet Stuff
                35298    Gingerbread
 
The following retailers have taken the above item:

1.) Blain Supply
2.) Cracker Barrel
3.) Meijer
4.) Toys R Us Canada

These above are Twinkle eyed & have twinkle gems as eyes – enjoy!!
"


Do you think we could tweet or email Target to get them to bring back the Basic Fun ponies?

I think that's a great idea!  Target, WalMart . . . maybe even Krogers / Fred Meyer.  I don't think Fred Meyer ever carried the Basic Fun ponies, but they have a pretty big toy section so they could.

My Cracker Barrel still had them last night.  I think they have 2 full sets.  They also had Sky Rocket but I couldn't get a pic of her because she was behind Fizzy.

Oooh lucky duck, Ponyfan! I still haven't had any luck with the to two closest Cracker Barrel's to me. (One store hasn't gotten any in at all; the other did get them on one shipment, but they sold out immediately.)

I have been so looking forward to snagging this full set, but if it's not in the cards, I still really really want Fizzy. If anyone is willing to grab me a Fizzy, would you please send me a direct/personal message to figure out details?

Otherwise I might have to start a support group thread on here for people who can't find TE's!
