I've been collecting My Little Pony since childhood. I got my first pony, Confetti, when I was two, from a car bootsale. A large proportion of my herd were secondhand to begin with and have been thoroughly played with in my early years, so unfortunately they are not in as good condition as they could be. But I still love them!
This is the first time I have had my whole collection together and on display. Usually at least some of it is boxed up at any given time. I did used to have some more - a beanbag, which sadly disintegrated over time; a set of curtains; miscellaneous other things that went astray during my childhood and duplicate ponies which I apparently felt the need to distribute amongst pony-less friends.
This is also the first time my partner has seen my collection. I think he was somewhat startled. But in a... good way? ^_^
|My Paradise Estate is sadly damaged (not by me!) and incomplete. But I do have quite a few sets of Pony Wear. ^^|
I have recently started to become more involved in the pony-collecting community online and was delighted to find what a friendly bunch of people they are. This may be a slightly bonkers hobby but it's harmless and keeps me out of mischief. I am proud of my collection! :)
