Sorry I've been MIA around here for the past month (and really since the beginning of the year, aka when I went back to my day job full time). Being a new parent is a bit of a bumpy ride, and I'm still trying to figure out how to fit this site into my new life. Luckily, Sam has been awesome at keeping this site running - Thank you Sam!
So here I am trying again to get back in the saddle again (pun intended). One thing I know I've been remiss in is addressing the messages from our Submissions Page. One of the most common submissions we receive lately are toy sightings, letting us know when a long anticipated pony toy is finally available in stores. While sometimes we'll do a post about toy releases, it can be a little hard to keep track as things roll out at different times, in different stores, states, and countries. I kept on thinking there had to be a better way.
And so, I'm proud to introduce the MLP News Toy Map! Anyone can add a marker to the map with what ponies are newly available at what local stores (no sign-up required, though entries will require moderator approval before being posted). And as people add information to the map, you'll be able to see what toys and merchandise are available close to you.
Of course, this map will only be as good as you make it, so it's a bit of an experiment. But I think it has a lot of potential to become a great resource for pony toy lovers. I hope you all think so too, and will start adding markers with your toy sightings soon.
Happy pony shopping!
