I stopped in Sears today to see if they carried ponies. Kmart does and the companies merged several years ago, so this doesn't seem that strange to me. Honestly I feel pretty bad for girls today. The toy isle consisted of nothing but disney crap and off brand baby dolls. Where are the ponies, littlest petshop, etc? I know when I was a kid I liked playing with animal toys!
I know this may sound silly, but I do not want to get ALL the g4 ponies like I did the g3s. I got burnt out with that and spent way too much money!
So I made a deal with myself to support my pony habit;
1. I only buy ponies I actually LIKE.
2. Other than special events, ponies are purchased with a pony credit that I reward myself with for making it through 4 workdays without buying a drink from the cafe.
In the end I should be ale to get only the ponies I really I save myself 6+ dollars a week!
