birthstones: still HTF?

just wondering if anyone's still having a hard time finding birthstones. my TRU was completely out of them for awhile, but in recent weeks they suddenly have a ton. seems to be mostly the second and fourth sets - april, may, june; october, november, december. is anyone else experiencing the same thing or would it be wise to invest in an extra set at this point?

That's a good question. I'm curious to know the "sets" and which ones are the more HTF. My Toys R Us is stocked with them and I'm wondering if I should pick up some extra too.

I was at TRU last weekend and they had a bunch of the birthstone ponies in stock. They did sell out of them before but then they got a bunch of them back in again.

My TRU seems to have most of them in stock again. I have 3 stores within about 5 miles of me, so I check all of them every so often. I don't think there are really any harder to find sets, but it depends on when your particular store gets their shipment and if they have room to open all sets at one time. One of our TRU only has 2 pegs devoted to the birthstone ponies, so only 2 boxes will fit out at a time. That means only 1/2 the ponies get out at one time, making it look like the other 1/2 is harder to find.

They really should have been made in equal quantities, so none should be harder to find than others. But if you go off the general population, more babies would be born in the summer months/going into fall because of, um, well, being snowed in and bored during winter, shall we say? So, more June babies may be out there than January babies, so June may seem harder to find as she's always sold out...know what I mean?

The birthstones will probably be about like the birthflower ponies, and I would guess they would be worth a bit more in time. I don't think they will run $50 each, though. Maybe more like $12 MIB at some point...so, it's really up to you and your finances as to whether you should get another set. Seeing into the future is so hard, so it's really a gamble either way.

If only we'd known about Rapunzel or Sweet Scoops...

My local TRU has quantities of the same ones over and over again. I ALWAYS see September, November, December, and March. I picked up April a few months ago when it was the only one there, and I haven't seen it since. Maybe some are harder to find than others in different regions. :?

My TRU hasn't had any in awhile. Though I haven't been in there in about 2 weeks or so. I'm still looking for set 1 (Jan, Feb, and Mar). I've even had some family check another TRU and nothing. :(

We were out for a long time and if fact only got the first 6 and now we have the other six (tons) and a few of the others. I wonder how long they will be around for?

A TRU I went to recently had a bunch as well. I hadn't been able to find them in a while. Perhaps they've all just gotten new shipments recently?

Then first time I went to check for them, they had all but July. So I snatched August, the other I was looking for. Then I kept going back and checking for months, looking for July. Never there. They finally restocked just a couple of weeks ago and there was ONE of her left.

I wonder if some of the summer ones are harder to find at the moment because people are buying them for kids with birthdays in those months.... just a thought

I haven't been able to find them at all. :( I'd give my right arm for August.

I am still looking for February. If people are noticing the stores have restocked I'll have to try my local store again.

I found all of the ponies I wanted to get quite easily. I think TRU is restocking because I finally found July and August. I'm sure the summer months are going to be harder to find right now, because of kid's birthdays. I think I have only seen one May and June though and I bought both of them.
