    So last week, your friendly neighbourhood Skybreeze went a pony hunt in the wilds of EBay. When she gave up on the Ebay search she landed at the Arena. Where she found a merchant of pony-a-plenty. Skybreeze lost her mind and spent a bit more than she had planned but for good reason. She had to “save” two of her childhood friends (and her first/reclaimed international ponies).

    My package arrived today and when I opened up Shady and Wind Whistler I was so overcome with joy I cried. I have been looking for these two NSS international versions for so long as I had them growing up and loved them so very much. These two, my Teddy and blanket went everywhere with me. And they are in stunning shape - dare I say mint condition?!? I also bought another Skydancer and a Sweet Pop from the same seller. Also both in great condition.

    Oooo! They do look awfully pristine! I'm so glad you treated yourself, you deserve it! It's always such a rush to reclaim something lost from your childhood.

    Tbh for the longest time I thought I was crazy because I knew both my childhood Shady and WW were not flocked. It took me ages to figure out (although it was right in front of my face) that they were just international exclusives, which makes since for my family as we have lots of family overseas.

    That’s because I don’t sleep, so I’m on the internets when “normal” people sleep. :rolleyes:o_O

    Aww, I loved reading this story. I'm a sucker for happy childhood memory. They look amazing. I don't have either, but I'd love both. Hmmm... I don't sleep much either ;)

    What is this 'sleep' you speak of? Is it crunchy? Can you eat it?

    Normalcy is overrated. I mean, have you *seen* those people? They're all so mundane and booooooooring! Yuck!

    Sweet Pop and Shady were 2 of my childhood ponies too. ^^

    It looks like Skydancer is nibbling Sweet Pop's hair. :lolpony:

    LOL!! Don’t pony shop when tired, then you end up with more than you intended.

    I know it’s kinda strange... I’ve heard “sleep” is when the human body enters some kind of motionless state. Where it apparently generates energy...or something. I don’t really know but it’s some crazy stuff.

    She is just wonderful. I am so so so happy with her.

    Bahahaha!!!!! I didn’t notice that but it does look like she’s lovingly nibbling Sweet Pops forelock.

    That sounds suspicious like sorcery. I'd hate to get burned as a witch for attempting such an outlandish thing! :stirwitch:

    "Sleep". Hah. What will these kids think of next?
