Would you believe it if I told you the cat ate my craft? Well, he did, or rather they did.
Today’s post was destined for greatness. An epic creation worthy of Tony Stark. Alas, I made the mistake of leaving our five kittens alone in my craft room while I stepped outside to check on a horse and POOF! My Stark inspired desk became a feline chew toy!
It was a catastrophe?.
I tried to salvage the desk, but it was too late. No amount of paper could hide the glaring teeth marks. Desk number two is underway but not quite finished (let’s just say I’m upgrading to a sturdier material?).
So, we are going to open some My Little Pony blind bags instead.
In our last Blind Bag Friday we opened several My Little Pony blind bags from Michael’s.
Well, since then our little herd has grown from nine to eighteen!
These ponies are from the Magic Of Everypony Roundup mini figure set. They were on sale at Target and I couldn’t pass up the chance to get Apple Jack! I think I paid about $15 for them.
The set included the Mane Six characters (Rainbow Dash, Pinkie Pie, Fluttershy, Rarity, Twilight Sparkle, and Apple Jack) plus three sparkly ponies who I believe are Princess Cadence, Princess Luna, and Princess Celestia.
Now we have three new blind bags to open! Let’s start by checking out the packaging.
These My Little Pony blind bags are wave 21 from the My Little Pony Friendship Is Magic series. There are 24 ponies in this wave, and inside each bag is one pony and one collector card
Now, it’s true we found those first nine ponies at Michael’s; however, the last time we visited, the blind bags were gone! Instead of mini figures, the box was filled with (not nearly as cute) squishy toys?.
Fortunately, Sister had my back. She found more My Little Pony blind bags at HEB and surprised me with them. Who would’ve thought a grocery store could be such a treasure trove!
Alright, time to see who’s inside these blind bags!
Blind Bag 1—Dane Tee Dove:
It’s a pony named Dane Tee Dove! According to the collector guide, this pony “has tea parties with friends.”
Hmmm…I know the bios for these blind bag ponies aren’t the greatest, but this one is exceptionally sorry. Tea parties are a favorite pass time in Ponyville, so obviously she likes them! It would’ve been nice if these descriptions gave more insight into each pony’s personality, but I guess I can’t complain too much–especially since they are only $5.
Dane Tee Dove is solid white with a curly, bright yellow mane and tail. Her purple cutie mark resembles a ringlet of foliage. Also, this girl has some seriously long eyelashes!
I think the lashes are supposed to make her look elegant, but I’m not sure they do.
Great, Tink. You insulted an innocent pony. Now how do you intend to redeem yourself?
There are images on the back of the collector’s guide showing all the ponies in this wave.
Look! There’s Granny Smith! I sure hope she’s hiding in one of these bags (my goal is to find the entire Apple family?).
Unlike the cards that came in the blind bags from Michael’s, this one opens into a small catalog showing off other mini figures to collect.
Isn’t the Cutie Mark Crusaders Balloon Booth adorable? And it has Apple Bloom! Oh boy, we better skip along to the next blind bag before I get too carried away!
Blind Bag 2—Fleetfoot:
Meet Fleetfoot! She is a Pegasus pony and part of an elite group that Rainbow Dash admires called The Wonderbolts.
Fleetfoot is a turquoise pony with a white mane and tail that looks like it’s blowing in the wind. She has a pair of goggles painted around her eyes and a cutie mark that looks like a winged horseshoe.
The collector card says, “she flies through the skies with her friends.” It’s a good thing this Pegasus pony likes to fly because Rainbow Dash needs someone to race besides poor Fluttershy!
We’re down to the last blind bag.
Blind Bag 3—Elbow Grease:
Inside our last bag is a sweet looking pony named Elbow Grease. Her bio says, “she works hard with her pals.” So, miss Elbow Grease is a hard-working pony. That’s my kind of horse!
Elbow Grease is bright pink. She has a lilac colored mane and tail and a teal cutie mark shaped like a fleur-de-lis.
Elbow Grease has her head tilted to one side and is holding one hoof up. It almost looks like she is contemplating something.
That’s it, folks! The blind bags are empty, and three new lovelies have joined our My Little Pony collection!
Even though they are simple, I can’t help but love these My Little Pony mini figures. Their miniature cuteness is too much to resist!
As far as blind bags go, I give them an A for charm, price, and variety (I’ve opened twelve blind bags so far and have yet to get doubles?).
Yes, I do think the descriptions on the collector cards are silly, but that’s just me being snarky. In reality, the little bios don’t devalue the figures at all. They’re just a fun extra that could be improved.
The pony figures, though, look super sweet and aren’t outrageously priced, which is important when you’re dealing with blind bags because you never know if you’re going get multiples of the same figure.
Well, friends, I hope you enjoyed this Blind Bag Friday post! Opening blind bags is always fun, and I feel certain more are in our future (I still need to find Granny Smith).
Now, I’m off to continue work that desk! Be sure to check back next week when (hopefully) I’m able to reveal the finished product.
