After Hasbro discontinued their successful run of classic My Little Pony toys in 1991,Tyco, under their Playtime Products affiliate, tried to fill the void left on the shelves in ‘92 with the very briefly lived Little Miss Dinosaur. I can find very little information about them and it is possible they were only available in Europe. It is a shame they were so unpopular, and that I have only very recently learned of their brief existence because they are nearly impossible to find. The price I’d pay to have that grotesque blue brontosaurus with her dead-eyed gaze and garish makeup on my shelf. If anyone has one of these toys, please share photos!
This one goes out to all pony collectors. Please help me find my childhood ponies!
Just like so many of us did, I sold most of my pony collection when I was a teen. I was young and needed the money! Now I am desperately trying to find them again, and seeing that there are so many collectors out there that lovingly care for and preserve G1 ponies, I have my hopes up that maybe some of my ponies ended up in your herds and you might be willing to sell them back to me.
My childhood ponies were usually marked under their hooves with my initials - W. S. - in either a black or a pink permanent marker, sometimes both.
I exclusively had G1 ponies from the years one to seven (1982 - 1989). I grew up in Germany and sold my ponies at some point in the early 90s on a flea market in the suburbs of Duesseldorf.
If you find a pony in your collection that you think might have been one of mine, please let me know and send me a picture of their hooves. Am willing to trade or pay!
Please share and spread the word, and help me find my childhood ponies!
