Denville, NJ (PRWEB) May 15, 2008
As Hasbro celebrates the 25th Anniversary of My Little Pony this year, children of the 80s and collectors alike celebrate a quarter-century of pony toys, plush, playsets and more with the release of The My Little Pony G1 Collector's Inventory (ISBN-10: 0978606310, ISBN-13: 9780978606312) from Priced Nostalgia Press. Compiled by collector and author Summer Hayes, this new guide covers the first 16 years of My Little Pony, providing trivia and history of the entire first generation of this toy line (commonly called G1) which is active to this day. For collectors and dealers both buying and selling these sought after vintage toys, The My Little Pony G1 Collector's Inventory provides a reliable way to not only accurately value My Little Pony items, but also to identify pony names and accessories. Available now at Amazon and other bookstores, this 256 page book has just under a thousand large, detailed, full color photos and is an invaluable resource as well as an entertaining read for anyone who remembers vintage My Little Pony.
As the toys featured in the two original television specials, feature film My Little Pony: The Movie as well as the syndicated cartoon series, the ponies from the first generation are the most valuable and sought after by collectors and casual fans alike. Though these toys were each originally purchased for $5 or less in stores, My Little Pony G1 dolls today can fetch anywhere from $10 to $400 and more depending on their rarity on sites such as eBay. As antiques and collectibles dealers have discovered the value in these profitable playthings, collectors will find that Hayes' value guide is helpful for pricing their existing collection as well as deciding on future purchases. The My Little Pony G1 Collector's Inventory also includes valuable pricing information and other details about hard to find variations, playsets, special offers, store exclusives, and mail order only items to help sellers and buyers alike price these items.
Large photos enable collectors to see details such as markings and symbols and handy checklists not only match each pony with their original accessory, but also enable the collector to keep track of what items she is still missing. In addition to the core My Little Pony items, The My Little Pony G1 Collector's Inventory also includes sections on hard to find items such as plush, stickers, Pony Wear clothing, Petite Ponies, Dream Beauties, Li'l Litters (My Little Puppy, Kitty and Bunny) and Romper Room's My Pretty Pony, the precursor to the My Little Pony toys famous today. Hayes also features ways to distinguish real My Little Pony items from fake as well as Collector's Notes that offer hints for care and valuing of items.
The My Little Pony G1 Collector's Inventory is available now at Amazon.com or a bookstore near you. Copies are also available from Priced Nostalgia Press direct at http://www.pricednostalgia.com
