I found these lovely ponies from a sale on Instagram a few months ago! I fell in love with Sundance right away. She's quickly become one of my favorite ponies! Blossom is also adorable!
I've been very neglectful lately, so to make up for it I'll be trying to post everyday. I have recently picked up many new goodies!

I still remember the puppy and kitty surprise commercials from my childhood. I loved putting the baby puppies inside the mommy dog. These two babies were made a bit later to go with the main sets. Each baby came dressed in a little onesie where it would tell if the animal was a boy of girl. They also each came with a handheld item like a bottle, or pacifier. The puppy's missing his bottle but she's still adorable!
A few weeks ago I won a lot of Furry Families sets from Takara on eBay. I was thrilled since I owned a few of these play sets when I was a little girl. I loved the Mole Family and the Kitty Family. I think it's so cute how each woodland family lives inside a different household object like a shoe or a tea kettle. Sorting these sets made me fall in love with them all over again!

The new year has been hectic so far, but I finally had a chance today to photograph some of my new sets. The first is one from the Littlest Pet Shop line called the Royal Palace Ponies. After a year and a half of collecting I realized I still did not own this set. It's very similar to the Ice Palace Ponies and the Royal Carriage Ponies. The ponies and puppy need to visit the pony salon, but I otherwise I am very happy with it! It's just missing one hair decoration.
This new find took me by surprise! Now that my Fairy Winkles collection is as complete as I think I can get it, I'm trying to find color variations within the sets. I was thrilled to find a lot on eBay with this MOC included. The seller agreed to sell it to me and I accepted! My loose set is quite best up, so I'm so happy to have a replacement!

An amazing find came in from overseas this week. I found a Kenner 1995 catalogue that showed all the toys for that year. I was thrilled to find that this book had four unreleased sets from the Fairy Winkles line that Kenner produced from 1993-1995. Below are some snapshots from the catalogue. So far I believe none of these sets were brought into production, but it's still amazing to see that this toy line had another direction that never came to fruition. It gives me something to dream about and hunt for.

A few days ago I got this awesome little fakie kitty from a member at the forum. I was super excited to find her since she matches my fakie puppy. Her eyes are pretty wonky but I'm in love!
I also couldn't resist photographing my fillies! They are all complete except for my Ruby Pony. I've very happy because I think I may soon be able to print the missing pieces like the blanket and stable sticker using scans from the lovely members of the kenner forum! I can't wait to start experimenting!
And last but not least I found this awesome glass while shopping last week. It's new but has an adorable illustration of Sundance from My Little Pony. I couldn't resist, and my ponies approved as well!
