PonyMommy, I'm sorry no one ever answered your question! All of the Fancy Pants babies sold in the US & Canada were made in Thailand, so those are the "normal" versions. My theory is that Hasbro used that set to try out a new factory. The Fancy Pants babies sold in Europe came out a full year after the US release, and those ponies were made in China (with some variations on hair color & paint colors on their diaper designs). Neither the Thai or China Fancy Pants babies are rare since both sets were released to a wide market.I have a question about the Fancy Pants Babies from Thailand, in the Arena Nirvana gallery it shows all Thailand ponies except the Fancy Pants Babies. Are these not considered Nirvanas?
There are a few Mountain Boys that have popped up marked "made in Thailand". Those are extremely rare with only 1 or 2 of each floating around the community. Since the regular release of Mountain Boys were made in Hong Kong, those Thai boys are the variants.
