This sadly isn’t the first time I’ve seen this.
What? No wonder you had to keep slashing prices; every time you changed the price you were defacing the merchandise! Can you imagine if that was Rapunzel?!?

unfornately thats very common or weird writing all over the pony. I once found a megan with a bunch of random small dolls with her. One of the worst for me was getting some ponies that had their necks glued together with super glue. :/

The super glue thing doesn’t bug me too much, I figure the pony was so well loved and played with that the kids parent had to repair it for them and just didn’t know a better way. My dad had to glue the head back on my sisters Ken doll cause she broke the neck peg (she liked to attach a homemade parachute and have him be a search and rescue person lol which meant a lot of dropping him off high surfaces) and while it didn’t turn anymore she was just happy his head was attached to continue play time :)

that didnt bother me however if I recall this was (a long time back.) when I bought a set of flutter ponies. so I think all of their wings were glued on or their necks were??? I think I used to clean up ponies alot and very throughly. I dont now unless its staying with me and it needs like its insides cleaned from tail rust or something else that maybe fixable.

I wish I had taken a photo, but a ziploc bag of ponies with dead cockroaches XP
Eww yikes!!!!
I would've bought it out of pity. What are people thinking!!
I don’t know, I really don’t know.
I think one of my favourites is our classic friend Cat Pee Pony. She’s lived an interesting life.
I have heard of this , she’s a legend!
There was the munchy filled with marijuana, too.
Wow. Like a collector bought a munch and when she opened her to clean her she was filled with it? So… that’s … yeah. Wow.

This one is kind of “weird” but more so just amusing. I found some G1 baby ponies in a vintage store that had had their manes cut off. Where their hair used to be, someone had lovingly attached craft store flowers in place of hair. In the end they were pretty cute just surprising when I realized there was no hair underneath the decorations.

Sounds really pretty!


Ok so here is another slightly amusing one from eBay:

Yeah, that’s her name. Haha! Though she was the muse behind Rainbow Dash. It’s just funny seeing this.
