I thought I'd share this with everyone. I have no idea how many of you remember this but back in the 80's Hasbro held a contest to see who had the most ponies. I have a newspaper clipping showing the winner and her ponies. I've always wondered if the little girl is still around or still has her collection. Here is a scan of the newspaper clipping I have:
I remember entering but I don't think I had 367 at that time.
I always wished I was that girl. I kinda remember the contest because I was probably her same age if not older. Very cool that you found this and shared it. I hope we find this girl and she still collects. At least she could appreciate our love of ponies still.
Man, I was... 5 and a half at that time. Wow... I don't even remember if I ever actually had My Little Ponies growing up, which is sad because I was born in 83, which makes them just about the same age as me *lol* I have a friend who has 200 of them, wish I had that many! I'm only up to 72!
It would be awesome, if she still collects!
We have to find out where mlp mom is!
Also we could make a contest for the 2012 mlp mom or dad!
Participants should prove the number of their ponies in one photo!
If they did that contest now they'd probably have to send someone around to verify the numbers cause I know quite a few collectors who have huge collections; because the numbers now are probably up to and past the thousand mark for some folks
I was 7 at the time, but I don't remember seeing anything about this contest. Really cool though! She would have beat me too, my collection was big but not that big at 7. Morgan, are you still out there!?
