Hi all,
Recently found my old pony. Mom is still digging through storage for my others. I had about 50 or so and they were the only toys my sister and I wanted anything to do with. I remember crying when she said she was too old to play ponies anymore. They got packed up and I hadn't thought of them much til I had a daughter of my own last year. Then I watched the Netflix episode on mlp last week and was inspired to start collecting. I have 7 ponies right now. And hopefully my mom will find the others from my childhood soon. She swears she knows where they are and is just busy...I sure hope so lol. I dont know most pony things atm I'm a true newbie. But I ordered a vintage copy of the collectors guide by debra birge and cant wait til it gets her to see all the ponys together. Anyway happy to have found more pony people! Nice to meet yall! Xoxo Peaches

Welcome! My mother tried for years to get me to give up my childhood collection, then they all got stolen from storage at a family member’s house (along with all my childhood Christmas decorations and other toys).

A great resource for a new(er) collector is theMLP Wiki page. It basically has everything you need to know about ponies, playsets and accessories.

Oh that's awful. I'm so sorry you lost your ponies. Thanks for the tip I have been trying to read up and get a better understanding of the collecting world. I had no idea there were so many ponies! Also looking up the lingo and useful sites. And trying to figure out what rares are like a concrete list seems to be impossible. (Til I joined here that is :) ) I actually was browsing the wiki last night! Very useful! Thanks! Ps if someone could tell me what TPA means? Or is it TAP ? Anyway thanks!

Hmm are you maybe thinking of “TAF?” If so, that is an abbreviation of “Twice As Fancy” which was a gimmick used in Year 5+ ponies.

Otherwise, I personally haven’t seen “TPA” or “TAP” used. What context did you see it in? Now I’m really wracking my brain because I feel like it’s going to be an “oh yeah” kinda moment. Lol

Welcome to the MLPTP! I remember when I started out and ordered Debra's guide years ago, so many ponies I'd never seen! Fast forward about 15 years and 500 ponies later ;) Good luck in your collecting!
