Is the value affected depending on if the box is black or brown?
Response From Trailmaster:
We never did brown boxes. We started out with black boxes, then moved to burgundy. Although it was expensive, we made a point of creating quality packaging as a way of enhancing the value of Painted Ponies as a collectible.

I was wondering how the Paint You own Pony kits can be called kits when there is nothing but the pony in them Nothing to paint them with.
Response From Trailmaster:
We used to include brushes and paint pots, along with unpainted resin figurines, in the Paint Your Own Pony kits. We discontinued the brushes and pots for two reasons: first, it raised the cost of the "kits" significantly; and secondly, we found that most people who purchased the kits already had their own brushes and paints, or preferred to used coloring materials different from the primary acrylic colors we were offering. We retained the use of the term "kit" for the sake of continuity, and made it clear in the packaging and promotional material that a copyrighted Painted Pony figurine cast in artist-grade resin was the feature and sole item for sale.

I found my old collection of ponies recently. Since I no longer collect them, I decided to sell them. What is a trustworthy site I can determine the value? Also, one pony has a number in the 500s, does that make him more valuable than a higher number?
Response From Trailmaster:
We have found that the most reliable site to sell Ponies is eBay. Yes, if one of your Ponies has an edition number in the 500s, that should definitely have a perceived value that is more than a higher edition number. Good luck.

Is there a miniature version of the "colt of many colors"? My best friend and my daughter collect the painted ponies and they both loved the movie and have both seen the life size colt and I think it would be a great addition to their collections.
Response From Trailmaster:
Unfortunately, not yet. There have been many discussions with Dolly Parton's team, a number of whom would very much like for there to be a "Colt of Many Colors" figurine, but for whatever reason, the green light has not yet been given.
