So, to keep from completely derailing the desk top thread, I'm posting pictures of my My Little Pony collection here. This was actually fun, because a) I got to find where I had stored them, 2) I got to take them all out and admire them again, and c) I had an excuse to look up all the names I couldn't remember.


Bubbles, Applejack, Medley, Boysenberry Pie


Original 6 plus Lemon Drop from the Show Stable
Snuzzle, Blue Belle, Cotton Candy, Minty, Blossom, Butterscotch


Back row: Baby Cuddles (you can see her better in the next picture along with her buggy), Satin 'n' Lace, Coat (Tux) 'n' Tails, Seawinkle
Front Row: Clipper (you can see him better in the next picture), Squirmy, Baby Surprise, Baby Noddins, Whirly, High Flier


Back row: Baby Cuddles in her buggy, Satin 'n' Lace, Coat (Tux) 'n' Tails
Front Row: Ember, Lucky the Stallion, Clipper, Squirmy, Baby Surprise

Okay, so when I was a little girl, I was a member of the My Little Pony Fan Club. I loved my ponies. I still do. Whenever you bought a pony in the store, there were points on the package that you could collect and use toward special, club-only mail-order ponies. Ember was the first baby pony. Lucky the Stallion was the first boy pony. I'm pretty sure Clipper was club-exclusive too, and maybe Baby Surprise and Tux 'n' Tails. I had the Show Stable - I think it might have been a Christmas present one year that started the collection.

Of the original six, I had five. For a long time I thought I had all six because Lemon Drop looked like she belonged in the team. It wasn't until the Internet that I realized I didn't have Snuzzle. I found her later - I think at a flea market.

I think Lemon Drop is my favorite. She was always the one in charge when I played. I loved Medley because she had gorgeous hair. I think she was the first one I got that had curly hair. Ember and Lucky were big favorites too. I thought it was cool that I had ponies that no one else I knew had.
Those are wonderful! I recognized Applejack right away!

Look at all those terrific ponies! No wonder you were such a fan. They all seem to be special in their own way. Thank you for sharing your ponies, Sakrysta.

Re: PICTURE POST II!

Those photos were great, Sakrysta! Very cute collection you've got there, and thanks for reminding me what Applejack used to look like in the old days...she's still more or less recognizable.

^Yeah, it just occurred to me that she's the only G1 pony I have that is a current character - at least that I know of.

Re: PICTURE POST II!

I don't even remember Seawinkle.

She must have been one of those Sea Ponies that were briefly released to expand the toy line.

Yep, they were bath toys. She's weighted at the bottom so that she floats up and down like a seahorse. I played with her A LOT in the tub as a kid. I'm amazed at the shape she's in, considering.

I bought a body wash last week just because it reminded me of how one of my scented My Little Ponies smelled. I wonder what happened to them all.

I like those earlier ponies better though the new ones do capture the show's charms and vivacity. The old ones are very sweet.

I didn't even know there 'were' Seapony toys, considering they only appeared once, briefly.

I'm still waiting for at least one legit Vampony toy from Gen 4. Midnight Blossom as a blindbag would be awesome.

Re: PICTURE POST II!

I guess Hasbro released a few Sea Ponies and then killed off the subline because of disappointing sales. A lot of toy lines have their spinoffs that seem like a fantastic idea at first, then the sales numbers start rolling in and they realize they should have gone in another direction.

Re: PICTURE POST II!



I bought a frame for my first published piece of writing. It was a Cracked.com Photoshop contest, but it's mostly writing, and they published it, so it counts.

I bought a new frame for my first rejection letter as well, because I can't find the one I bought years ago. It's empty because I haven't received a rejection letter yet. Although, I just submitted a poem to Poetry Magazine because I'm required to for my creative writing class, so I should have one in 6 to 8 weeks, then I'll be a real writer!

They are in your mother's attic next to your hula-hoop and lite-brite that you only used once and you used it to make a swear word.

This one. I'm #5. A bunch of people in the comments said it should have been #1, and those people are awesome. Especially this:



I'm not the only one here who has been in one. I remember seeing Trekker4747's name once, but I don't remember which one. I'm sure he knows though.
