mouse... that last link wasn't supposed to link to the forum, right?

zuse- Good thinking! I'm sure there are Polly collectors out there!

Yes I'm a loser! This is what it's meant to be: http://cgi.ebay.com.au/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=220594410551

Okay, so I'm a little confused about one of the molds.  :)

Here is a screencap from the commercial posted:


Do these castles agree with the "By The Sea" model?


Version A
(Pending Permission)

Version B


Version C (my castle!  ^^  please credit me if this image is used in any way)


Version C inside? (I THINK this is my model's inside)


Maybe they didn't make 3 colors of one model, but they're all different inside.  *Shrug*?!
Also, I've seen these described as "Glitter Castle".

This is the one I found I found at a thrift store. The tops of the castle can be removed to reveal bubble wands.

Keep checking ebay - search for star castles, starcastle, trendmasters (use the search in title and description search) and also search the polly pocket listings, with things like polly pocket castle, polly pocket style, polly pocket type, polly pocket similar. You might also want to may a wanted post on this site and also do it on other toy sites (e.g. the mlptp.net and mlparena.com are active forums). Good luck :)

I have found yesterday these both ones. Under the castles it is written : 1995 - Trendmasters Inc. - Made in China.  ;)

The pink has not the yellow birds you can see in the other castle.

Here's all that I could find (look at the page sources).

There might also be a Pretty Park line? I'm not sure, there wasn't anything on that link's page. There's only one backup of the site so I don't know if earlier or later sets are omitted.

------------------

Also, Em posted this screen cap:



I'm not sure where "In the Clouds", "Under the Sea", and "By the Sea" fit into all of this. Sunshine line, I guess?

I've also seen a Star Castle - Cosmetic Castle mentioned on a site circa 1997.

Also, the ad pikpal posted had Carousel and Ferris Wheel Starcastles.

Here's one of the Coach ones. It's called "Beach Coach" so I assume it goes with the Beach Castle.


http://cgi.ebay.com/STARCASTLE-BEACH-COACH-1996-TRENDMASTERS-NEW-BOX-/170508284392?cmd=ViewItem&pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item27b315f1e8

Here's a locket. I assume it matches the Beach Castle as well?

http://www.mlparena.com/Forums/viewtopic/t=210361.html

They said they had two:
Made by Trendmasters in 1995. They are small castles that you wear as a locket around your neck, each one comes with a princess and her pet/friend. The ones I have are Kaleidoscope Locket Castle Under The Sea (with mermaid and seahorse) and Kaleidoscope Locket Castle In The Clouds (with angel and winged unicorn).
