Hi all I'm new and saw an earlier post re this and had a follow up question I hope someone can answer.

I have a lot of g1 ponies from my childhood. I had decided to sell some but wanted to keep a few. The thing is the ones I sell were going towards dd's new toy/ pony fund (50/50 split) but the ones I keep I had hoped she could play with. Does anyone know if g1s are safe or full of bad chemicals? Tried the link from the previous post but it doesn't work :). Please help!

Having read stuff on the net have pretty much come to the conclusion tiny is safer playing with the real ponies :) if she sucks on the big lads mane all she'd injest would be mud :)

They're fine. If they haven't killed us or made us very ill after thirty plus years they won't do it anytime soon. They would have likely been recalled ages ago.

Considering you may be more in danger from buying plates and glasses at the store, they often have warnings about carniogenic substances. Nice of you to tell us and sell it anyway stores. Hooray!

Hi thanks for the reply, I know we've been OK I just wanted to know if g1s were tested. Are they better than later ones? Worse?

We've had a high rate if cancer in the family so am cutting down all carcinogenic chemical contact I can, from makeup to flooring, laundry detergent to shampoo. Its been pretty easy to find alternative things for everything but toys! So I'm just being selective with them and trying to find the least toxic ones I can. I was secretly hoping someone had tested a g1 pony and it had been OK :oops:.

I hate to say it, but all pvc, especially plasticized pvc is bad for you. That means that tons of toys aren't very healthy. :( http://www.ussafety.com/media_vault/documents/1264894110.pdf I really don't know how it would be possible to stay away from the stuff though. Personally, I'm going to live my life, enjoy my ponies, and avoid sticking them in my mouth.

Oh darn it you mean I can't chew on my pony collection anymore? Well, that just ruins my day. My whole world is toxic. There is mold in the house in places, dust in places, cat hair in places, pollen outside, processed foods, cancer causing agents in the chemicals under my sink, dangerous lead probably in other stuff. Heck there may even be asbestos in this old 1930's house. Trees are outside, toxic chemicals in the air and water. Where ya gonna go? I say have fun and if you go to the doctor and they do some test and you come up sicker than a dead mop in someone's cellar then run from plastic.
In my opinion you are more likely to get cancer from the air, the water, the earth, genetics, and what you consume than a toy.

What is it with you people and sticking old stuff into your mouth? Have we learned nothing from that crazy cake lady?

ummmm @Leave a Whisper who is the crazy cake lady? Is she that horder that had a cake in her refrigerator for 50 years and broke it out for company. Mind you they couldn't sit down anywhere, but she found some plates on the floor and some plastic forks used before here and there; like one was in the cat box and so on. She served her cake which was a white cake but turned to a green cake. Everyone ate some and missing posters went up. Low and behold they found 25 people dead in that house after being missing for 2 weeks. The youngest victim was a cockatoo called Chokey. Was it that lady?

Yes. That one. That lady with the G3 MLP cake.

What now?

There was this thread about this eBay listing. Some woman in the UK was trying to sell off a G3 MLP birthday cake.

We had a lot of fun speculating about what was living in it, who if anyone would buy it, what would happen if you cut it open, how long you would live if you were crazy enough to try to eat it, WHY would anyone keep a food item for that long and various uses for it. Up to and including using it as a cactus planter and flinging it over the fence via catapult at neighbors we didn't like.

Oh and we were totally cracking jokes about how she needed to get rid of the cake because she needed room for her dead neighbors that came over for dinner in the fridge.

It is one of the greatest trading post threads ever!
