My name is Laura, and I was born in 1983, so I grew up with My Little Pony. One of my first drawings that my parents have kept was of a MLP that I made at 4. So, I was obsessed throughout my childhood, from about 4-9/10ish. I had many, many G1 ponies that I stored in a tubs for my future children to play with. Recently, while my five year old daughter was playing with my large collection, I thought that maybe I should see if anything that I owned was now a collector's item. I was surprised and happy to stumble upon this world of pony enthusiasts and I'm excitedly learning more and more! I am looking forward to seeing what wider value my childhood hobby currently holds in addition to its sentimental value. Thank you for the welcome, and the friendly place to learn more!
