Hello! I'm new here. Still slowly poking my way around the site to get a bit more familiar.

A little about me... I'm 40 years old so G1's were out when I was 4 years old! I remember them fondly, going to the store with my mom and seeing them on the pegs. My mom kept my ponies for me after all these years. She must have had a premonition that one day I might love them all over again! haha. I did have the My Little Pony Nursery, but that did not make it *sad face*. I have a small amount of G1's and a few G3's for a total of 48 ponies, among some other things like a few Cutie Mark Crew ponies and some plush ponies. I hope to expand my collection over time complete with a lovely display case. Right now, I have them lined up in front of some of my favourite books on my bookshelf.

I'm from Canada. I live in a small town in the middle of the Prairies (hence my user name ;)). I don't know any collectors out here, so mainly buy from eBay when I can afford it. I would love to make lots of new pony-lover friends!

If I had to pick a favourite one, it would probably be G1 Gusty. But I love all the rainbow unicorns so much. :)

Anyways, it's great to be here. Hope to see you around soon! xoxo

Welcome! Gusty is my favourite G1 pony as well. I'm in Ontario. I've been a collector since the 80s.

I try to get a lot of my ponies from thrift stores and flea markets. You could always try the larger cities closest to you and make a day of pony hunting. Even if sellers know the value of the ponies, as some in my area do, being able to negotiate and not pay shipping really helps save on the cost of ponies.

I also had the nursery when I was a child and mine did not make it either. I did recently pick a mint condition one up off of Kijiji for $10.00! It also came with a few accessories and a NBBE baby Cuddles. Try checking areas around you.

Only problem is, we’re spread out across the country. :p

Hello fellow Canadian pony huntress! I too hail from the cold white north of Toronto (Ontario). My all time favourite G1 is Shady, she’s my girl. Ha ha!! I am in my mid 30’s and also grew up with G1’s and have many memories buying them at Toys R Us as a child.

Welcome to the TP and I hope to see you around more and get to know you better. :)

Hello fellow Canadian! :D Pacific West Coaster (Burnaby, B.C.), here. :3 I collect G1, G3 and G4. I had a small collection of G1 ponies growing up, but I still have all my original girls. I don't know if I can really pick out a favourite, but I do have a fondness for Fizzy. :)

Welcome to the MLPTP! :lolpony:
