Internets, I have a problem.
It’s a First World Problem, but it’s a problem.
I… am addicted to blue toys.
I didn’t mean for it to get this way! It just happened! >sob<
It wasn’t my first pony that did it. My first pony ever, the one that started me on this path of pony addiction (seriously, crack would be cheaper, y’all), was Firefly. She’s pink. She has blue hair? Was that it?
The first blue pony I got was this pretty girl here:
Maybe Bowtie is where it all began… I saved all my pony points – remember pony points? – and got Lucky the Colt, and then the Mail Order set of the original six, which included Bluebelle…
Now… when Friendship is Magic came along… you’d think Rainbow Dash’d be my favorite character, right? That she was the first one I’d get? Well, no. That was Rarity. But Rainbow Dash quickly followed her into ownership. Then Fashion Style Rainbow Dash. Shadowbolt Rainbow Dash will also soon follow, have no doubt.
And then we get into the other releases! Trixie and Mrs Cake! Star Swirl, who was only available in Europe but because I must Pony All the Things, she had to come home, and on the double. And Nightmare Moon who is actually a very deep shade of blue and is utterly gorgeous.
As I’ve rebuilt my G1 Pony collection and started a G3 pony collection, I am forever looking for blue ponies.
But if you think this blue madness extends only to ponies? Oh, reader… no. No no no.
I’ve mentioned before in this blog that while Lagoona Blue was my first Monster High doll, the one I really had my heart set on was Abbey Bominable. She was blue, after all. And beautiful. And kinda glittery. And an awesome character to boot.
And did I mention, blue?
This quickly manifested itself into a bit of insanity I like to call “ALL ABBEY MUST COME HOME.” If an Abbey Bominable doll is released in a line, she will be mine, and she will be in this house, with all her blue sistren. This has somehow led to me having 13 Abbey Bominable dolls total – 14 when the one I bought to go halfsies with a friend on the Abbey/Heath Home Ick set gets here. Not that there’s 14 separate dolls… it’s just that I have extras. And I put them in their fashion pack outfits.
Then there have been two Create-a-Monster girls who’ve been blue… so I had to have them.
(Holt Hyde doesn’t count because we don’t do boy dolls in this house. My girl dolls make lesbians with other girl dolls, thank you)
And then there’s what happened last week.
I had a little spending money. As you do sometimes. I had perused stores for new ponies – nada – or new Monster High – also nada – and was cruising the toy aisle at Walmart when I spotted that one of the little Novi Stars dolls was marked down a few bucks.
Oh, lord y’all. I folded like a cheap card table. I don’t like the Novi Stars, I don’t. I think their premise is lame, and for the most part I think the dolls aren’t the cutest. But even from their first appearance, I had my eye on this one. And with her marked down, I figured what the hell.
So there’s that then. >sigh<
I can swear on a stack of bibles that there won’t be anymore Novi Stars in this house, cause I really just don’t like them at all.
But Equestria Girls Rainbow Dash? Oh yeah, she’ll be here.
More blue ponies and more Abbey? Oh yeah, they’ll be here too.
Any new blue Monster High or Ever After High girls? You betcha.
