Title: Any idea who this Fakie Pony is?
Post by: sd-dreamcrystal on Monday 09 November 2015, 05:01 pm
I found her on ebay and the owner could give me very little information. Only that she was with a collection of other 80's toys. According to the owner there is no stamping on her and at this time I am unable to get her (due to a bidding war). So I was hoping someone might have an idea so I can go on a search for others like her.

Any help would be appreciated

I'm still on the hunt to find out what she is.. Not 100% sure she is a pony now she might be another hooved species

She looks adorable.  It is a shame that the Fakies Ponies site no longer is up.   :'(  There were so many listed there that you could have had a great chance at finding her back on that site.

Good Luck with the hunt  ;)

What was that site called? I know in another area I posted a while back someone suggested a fakie site but I didn't even see her there XD

Sorry, I have no idea anymore.  Something like "Fakies guide" or so.  I deleted the link from my favorites when it went off line and the link just led to a free domain advertising page.  But it is almost a year off line now ...

Okay, so I just did some digging around in my internet history and the site was called: "Fakietopia"  But as you can see, it leads to nowhere anymore: http://www.fakietopia.com/fakietopia   :'(

That's a shame. I've still had no luck finding out anything of this fakie.. some have said they don't think it's a pony but it's really hard to say

I don't see why it shouldn't be a pony  ???  In my eyes she is one, a fakie yes, but a pony.  What else would they call her?

I think someone said a deer or cow XD

A deer I can still see with some imagination, but a cow  ??? ???  Nope, definitely not a cow.  I really think it is a fake pony.

it's an odd mix. Head looks G3, eye looks G2, and the body is an old G1 pose but with hooves.

Often the ponies with no markings were part of a larger set, usually with a doll- or with a bunch of different sized ponies.

Could she be from Lovely Lady Locks?

Or something like this:

I've seen plenty of CPPs to know she isn't one XD
My first thought was Lanard because of the eyes

Hmm didn't think about a set which makes it even more so tricky to track down

Took a look on here and sadly the only 80's Strawberry Shortcake pony was Maple Stirrup :(

Newer ones don't match up with it either sadly

Some other ideas:

Did you ever own animals from the "Lanard Pet Zoo" serie perhaps?  They had wild animals but also domesticated ones so perhaps this is the horse / pony???

Or did you follow perhaps magazines from fake My Little Pony with which came dolls and rings and other gadgets?  Could she have been an add to such a magazine?

I know about Lanard's Pet Zoo but I've never actually seen them here in the US nor have I seen a Magazine subscription here in the US that has the toys attached to it (but I know they exist in the UK). It's possible she might be from a magazine or set but since I don't know who bought her or even seen any others like her I can't get more photos for information :( I just know unless there is an older line of Pet Zoo she is not one of them XD

She is a real mystery  :)  BTW, did you manage to get the lot she is a part off?  Have you got any more details you can share already with us?  Perhaps share a pic of the entire lot?  Maybe this can help if someone can recognize other toys and this may for instance spark a memory that the pony also belongs to this or that item in the lot?  (I am just trying some suggestions)

Sadly I didn't get the lot as it was over a year ago so I can't find the original lot any more either. I can say she was with several other Lanard ponies that were in this mold https://i.gyazo.com/c0c67ec6560618518050e5630b3b8620.png an the original owner said there was no stamping on her.. that she was just in a box with several other 80's toys

I wish I could give more information but sadly I'm not able :(

Sadly I am currently out of ideas  >:(  But I do browse around a lot on Fakie sites (for other toys but I do see Ponies there too  ;)) so I will keep her in mind and shoul I ever spot her or a sibling, I know where the info needs to be delivered!  ;D  And when we then do finally manage to ID her (I just managed to ID a fake pony that has been nameless for years so never give up hope cause you can come across them in the oddest places :D ) we will feel like the Kings / Queens of the World  ;D

Thanks robin

I know that in the past I had like a few things that took me years to find the names for but they eventually came up and I was able to idea them. Hopefully you spot something on a fakie site ;)

Who knows.  Maybe she'll be one in a kind  ;D  I have already seen a few on sites people went crazy over as the fakie was never seen before and no one had seen one like that fakie before.  Perhaps she belongs also to that category.

And of course we do not know where she comes from.  perhaps the seller also bought her years ago in a lot and does she come from Russia or so  ::)  I haven't seen many Russian fakie Ponies yet by-ut they do exist.
