I have an army of them. I need to get rid of them. I suppose I can always donate them back to a thrift store, but I'm looking at all the options. Suggestions?

No kids anywhere. I wouldn’t customize non MLP. I guess that leaves trade, sell or donate. Thanks.

Mine are all collecting dust. One day when I remember I will take them back to the thrift store. OR I will cross paths with someone who loves them and I will happily send them off to that person. :) (Although I do like a couple of them I may customize one day..)

I try to sell them but I don't have any interesting fakies (aside from the concerned ones that are long gone). If you ever sell a lot of ponies you could sneak some fakies in there if you just want to get rid of them.

Evelyn likes customizing the fakies best. That way she doesn't feel badly if it turns into a giveaway oopsie one. I was thinking of gathering a collection of them for her birthday party, so everyone could paint one. Otherwise, I usually send them free (they pay shipping) to anyone who wants them. You can also donate them to churches, hospitals, and daycares instead of salvation army or goodwill. That way you know that some kids are enjoying them.

Wrong thread! Whoops!
Anyway, a lot of people do use them as practice customizing fodder, so there is always that option as mentioned. Maybe lab subjects for restoration techniques?

Mine are sequestered away from the herd, shunned. XD (Shun the non-believer, shuuuun!:lolpony: I'm going on like four hours of sleep.:blink::unsure:)
My suggestion? Give them to needy kids. Maybe there's a charity or homeless shelter near you that takes lightly used toys. Or find a way to send them to hurricane victims kids or the kids in California effected by the fires. (I'm originally from there, but didn't live near the effected areas.) Doing good in the world makes you feel good.

Mine are on a shelf with my totsy cheeky pants I call them her minions.
I love fakies I adopt a few more if I could find more.

We put them in those boxes you send overseas at Christmas too.

It would be fun to put fakies in a small little Christmas tree.. obviously away from lights because I’m sure a lot of them would melt... Maybe not such a great idea. :/

I have a lotta custom Christmas ornaments made from fakies, thus far the lights don't put off enough heat to damage them. Go for it!
