How many ponies do you have?
Somehow, somewhere along the way, I managed to lose count! Can’t imagine why….. But my best guess is somewhere over 3,000 unique items.
How long have you been collecting?
My first My Little Pony came into my life when I was barely old enough to talk. And the rest, as they say, is history!
Where did you find all these ponies?
Very few of the vintage items were actually purchased in stores during the time they were originally sold. I have a side hobby that presents a lot of chances to find ponies: treasure hunting! I scour yard sales, flea markets, and online auctions, where I sometimes find opportunities to add to my collection. You really just never know where something might pop up.
Why do you collect?
Ponies were an integral part of my childhood, and they have always brought me a feeling of nostalgia and joy. My collecting really began when I was diagnosed with a serious lifelong health condition in my teens, and the hobby provided me with an activity and a passion that I could participate in without risking my physical health in the process. It all sort of just came together that way, and since meeting some truly incredible fellow collectors over the years who are also now my long-time friends spanning decades, collecting ponies is something I continue to enjoy.
What is your collection worth?
Hmmm… No comment! 😉
Where did you get that giant “life-size” pony?
Now that is a story! Scroll down to read more about my life-size commercial prop.
