A Robot and Her Pony

February 7th, 2011

I want you to meet two new little ones that have joined my collection:

I'm a huge fan of My Little Pony, especially the originals. When I saw the cutest little jointed pony on Etsy, I couldn't resist. He's the smallest of all my ball-joint dolls at only 10cm tall, which includes his ears, and made by the super-talented DaisyDayes. McPonysons (a big name for such a wee guy—he goes by "Mik" for short) arrived a few weeks ago. I spent the weekend before last putting wire in his legs so that I could pose him easier.

Also come to live with us is Danbo, the cardboard robot. I fell in love with her after seeing so many adorable Danbo pictures on flickr. She's amazingly fun and quite full of expression even though her face is only made-up of circles and a triangle. She has kind of a naiveté about her that I find charming.

Danbo has attracted a wild pony!

It's a good thing ponies like lollipops or that could have gotten ugly. ;)

    After a picnic lunch and a 3 mile hike what a delight to see the pony and the Robot. The pony sure is posable and does like that lollipop. They are so cute together. How did you get the Robot's eyes to light up? I bet Wednesday will have to have them in a photo shoot!!!!!! :P

    @The Dad: Thank you, Dad, and you're a dork. ;)

    @Mom: Thanks! Do you see the switch on the right-side Danbo's head (our left-side looking at the picture)? That turns on her eye lights. Pretty cool, huh? Oh, and Danbo and Mik are so tiny compared to Wednesday. They only come up to her knees. It's so cute!

    @Lani: Thank you, L! This was a super fast photo shoot that I was trying to get done before I totally lost the light; so, I was surprised that it turned out so well. I was prepared to have to redo it the next day. Glad I didn't have to!
