Why MLP Merch is a Bit Quiet + What's Coming Soon!
It's been a bit quiet here in the past few weeks, and we're fully aware of that. That's why we did want to share the reasons behind this and what our plans are for the coming months.
So, to first address the elephant in the room: we're still very much alive and working on MLP Merch!

C&A Shows New My Little Pony Line - Advertises With Unlicensed Plush
Across Europe clothing store C&A announced a new line of My Little Pony clothing for young adults through their latest newsletter. Within the collection, which might be placed under their Clockhouse sub-brand, there are various colors of short-sleeved shirts with a variation of Mane 6 ponies and designs. It is possible that more apparel will be included, but the newsletter did not show anything else besides these shirts.

The online stores of C&A across Europe (for example the German one) are pretty much in-sync when it comes to their offerings, and none of them currently have anything My Little Pony related on offer, outside of children's sizes. A bit more patience will be required before we can see all designs in detail, but we'll keep you posted!

One juicy detail is the fact that the promotional photos used in the email newsletter show various unlicensed plush from FrontWinner/Olyfactory. These were never officially sold in stores, so it's unclear where the marketing department/studio got these from (certainly not from Hasbro!).

Thanks to Ayu for the heads-up!

Claire's Japan and Daiso Launch MLP Lines
Incidentally two Japanese retailers both launched their own lines of My Little Products this month. Even more of a coincedence: they both launch heart-shaped keychains!

Store Finds: G1 Rainbow Ponies, Lots at Ross, Easter Basket & Much More
As you might have noticed we're not posting a weekly store finds report anymore. While this is partly due to our busy lives at the moment, but also the reduced amount of My Little Pony stuff that is currently being released. The announced end of the G4 series is definitely not helping, but we're hoping to report on new stuff soon.
For now most of the items found in stores are discounted old stock and a handful of new items. Nevertheless interesting news if you're looking to complete your collection!
If you happen to find brand new stuff in your local store, then feel free to write us a small message with photos.

My Little Pony Seashell Hallmark Keepsake Ornament
Since 2017 Hallmark has been releasing G1 My Little Pony Keepsake ornaments. In 2017 it was Moondancer, 2018 brought us Firefly and 2019 brings us Seashell the Earth Pony. (They did release an ornament in 2014 as well of Cotton Candy)
She's about 2,4 inches tall which roughly translates to 6 centimeters. Right now she's available for pre-order on the Hallmark website. Seashell listed for $15.99 and will be released on July 13, 2019. Have more info below:

Panini Released School of Friendship Collectible Stickers
Back in 2016, during the Explore Equestria series, Panini announced their first line of collectible My Little Pony stickers. One year later a new set was inevitable with the release of My Little Pony: The Movie. And while we didn't see a new set in 2018 (in Europe most stores kept their stock of the movie set), Panini released the 3rd series of My Little Pony stickers last week. At least, this was the release date in Germany. According to the Panini Instagram this set was already available in the UK since September 2018, but we didn't hear any store finds of them at all!

Tied in with the School of Friendship line a lot of new faces are featured in this sticker album, among which of course the Young 6. In total you'll find 208 brand new stickers in this set, 48 of which are glitter variants. Completing your collection can be done through the usual two ways: 5-sticker booster packs or getting start kit which includes the sticker album and 26 stickers to kick-start your collection. The packs are 60p/€0.70 and the album, which also includes a poster, is available for £2.99/€2,50. While it sounds interesting to buy only albums, it could be a bit misleading as the album could contain a fixed set of sticker with each copy. Another option is available in France, which offers the album including a Twilight Sparkle mini figure (Egmont magazine figure).

More information and listings can be found on the English, German or French website of Panini, but expect to see these appear in European shops soon.

Thanks to Ayu for the heads up!

Wilson Releases Line-Up of My Little Pony Products
Yes, we're still alive! It's been a while since we posted, but we're still on the lookout for the latest news in the world of My Little Pony. Due to the announced end of G4 we're seeing various licensed companies stop their production of MLP stuff, but we did find an exception! The Chinese branch of Wilson, the sports company, just launched their spring & summer 2019 line-up on Tmall/Taobao, and it's loaded with My Little Pony stuff!
Included are tons of basketball designs, footballs (both American and soccer), socks and backpacks. Most feature known vectors of Pinkie Pie, Rainbow Dash and Twilight Sparkle, as we commonly see, but one basketball features a refreshing "Power of Friendship" Cutie Mark Crew Twilight Sparkle.
What's sad to see, however, that even these licensed products feature fan art, which we doubt are agreed to by the artists.

The listings can be found on Tmall, but an account is required to see them all. Therefor we've included lots of pictures of all products below, enjoy!
(Thanks to Ayu for the heads-up)

Sweetie Belle Finally Available as Magazine Figure
If you browse through the list of ponies that have been included as freebie figures in the European magazines, there's one returning character that we're still missing: Sweetie Belle. Well, until now, because Egmont has finally released her as a magazine figure with this month's magazine. Do note that it took 5 years before the complete CMC was released, as Scootaloo originates from 2014!
Her design looks spot-on, with the added cutie mark, flowing tail and she even gets a glittery mane to make this release a extra special.
During this month she will start to appear in magazines in Europe (where magazine figures are released), but we don't have exact releases dates on new issues per country.
Thanks to Kira for the photos and Tomo for the heads-up!

My Little Pony Series 3 Stackems by Basic Fun

For the past few days our inbox has been flooded with this news: Basic Fun has listed the third series of Stack'ems on their website!
This set contains all new characters with some of them making their first merch appearance. Almost the whole "Young Six" is included: Sandbar, Silverstream, Yona, Gallus and Smolder and at last Cozy Glow. So no Ocellus sadly. (or perhaps she's in disguise... *looks at Cozy Glow*) By looking at the image it's very likely that Silverstream is gonna be the chase figure as she's filled with glitter.

Last week we posted about the first Series 4 Cutie Mark Crew blind packs from Amazon in the UK, and now we can confirm that they're available at Target too! We've seen some report of stores that do not yet have it in stock, so keep an eye out the coming days at your local Target store. The photos seen in this post are from a store in Utah.
As an added bonus we can now take a look at some of the new collector cards, with adorable faces! Check them out below.
Thanks to Jenna for the photos and info.
