I know there are a lot of people out there that collect both but most have a bigger passion for one of the two series of collectables. I think care bears are very cute but basicly I'm a my little pony girl and I have been collecting them for years now. I actually got a spread about it in the college newspaper and a photographer came over, it was a topic about 'uncommon collections'. It was a lot of fun to do and share with other people. I added the photo they took below. I'm found on www.mlparena.com quite often, lately I haven't been on so much because I've been more active on mylot, other sites, work, spending time with my boyfriend and sewing and customizing clothing. We only have 24 hours in a day, right? . My preference comes from great childhood memories, the fact I like horses a lot and I enjoyed the cartoons on television a lot. Which one do you prefer and why?

I am definitely more into My Little Pony. I had many of them as a child and loved them. As I got older they got set aside and I moved onto other things. When I had my daughter she developed a love for horses and she became interested in ponies around the age of 3, she has never been one for girly things but she is crazy about her ponies. From then on we have amassed a fairly large collection of ponies. I have lost count, but am safe in saying 380 or more, some of these were mine as a child. She loves both the old and the new while I prefer the older ones. My daughter is now almost 11 and when she has friends over they are just amazed at her collection. Most know that she has it, but I don't think they are aware of the extent. We do have a small collection of 80's carebears ( the little plush ones), but they have never grabbed our interest as much as the ponies.

UK baby sweetie pony - Possibly my biggest brag ever apart from two piggy ponies I once bought for 25 dutch gilder cents each. I bought this beauty at a thrift store for 10 euro cents!
(I guess about 17 or 18 USD cents)
I fully agree. I have one or two 80's plush care bears but I am looking to trade them for my little pony items or sell them. They are nice, but they never caught my interest like the my little ponies did. I have been collecting ever since I was a kid and I never stopped collecting. I have lost count aswell but I think I am somewhere near 300+ (just ponies, I love collecting items like books, videos and such aswell). I even have a life guard vest for kids and crazy MLP items like that. They allways make my day .

The lifeguard vest sounds really neat. We have a few DVD's of the older movies as well as the video for Firefly's Adventure. My daughter and neices love to watch them. I love all the extra merchandise they use to have, but never seem to find much of it. I did find a TAF Merriweather bubble bath container at a yard sale once.

Thankt a lot for your response Ellie . I can imagine parting with certain child hood toys is hard, most of mine are in my my little pony collection as I still collect them so it's not that noticable but I think it's sweet they keep them. Thanks a lot for the compliment on the photograph aswell, I can't even remember I had my own haircolour back then! LOL! It's been dyed so many times in my life in different colours it was odd to see my own colour again.

Thank you for your response, Ericajoyce. It is allways lovely to meet a fellow collector. The cartoons are a lot of fun, I have to agree on that one. Once they came out on DVD I bought them all to make sure I would be able to store them savely. I have watched the VHS tapes so many times that they are not working properly anymore!

Yes, I do collect them. But the ones I collect do no longer sell, they were sold during the 80's and 90's. There are still my little ponies on sale but those are the new generation ponies. They are definatly cute and I agree the have lovely soft and silky hair. Thanks for responding ^_^
