on it's own adults liking kids shows isn't too bad since ADULTS created and animated them to appeal to both children and their parents
as for your stuff, all I can say is that in the end it's up to you how much it's sold for. The people getting on your case are pointing out that since you don't work for the companies that made any of these series you have no way to mass produce anything so they assume that making individual 1-of-a-kind products warrants a higher price in general
$300 however is stretching it unless you hand make crafts out of carbide steel and latex paint
It's not even usually the maker of those plushies who PUTS the price at $200+, they might start it at 100-150$(I'm talking about the extremely accurate and well made pony pulshies) because of labor, material, profit, and popularity of the character the plushie is, but it's the fans who bid it up to $500+. It's really not that hard to figure out. Let people with an extra 500-800$ lying around buy a pony plushie for 500-800$.
Well, forgive me if I am misinterpreting you. But your complaint is both because Bronies exist, and that people will pay upwards of 200$ for hand-made clay figures or plushie dolls of the ponies. You make little charms of pokemon characters (arguably just as childish as My Little Pony) and are looking to sell them online. To which I assume that if the customer demand for said charms were upwards in a couple hundred dollars, you would not be complaining in the least. Now, I don't know if you possess the cognitive functions to comprehend our brief and simple little back and forth conversation. But I would be so bold as to assert that I am indeed remaining on topic with my little comparison there. Your discriminatory slander towards the mentally handicapped not withstanding.
So when awnsering to someone that made an obvious dumb remark is being mad ? What i'm talking about and what i'm planning to sell are two different thing. Why should even compare the price at the first place ?
See, there's this thing in capitalistic economies called 'supply and demand'.
Things aren't just worth the amount of the materials that went into making them, plus the labor (although apparently to you, labor is worthless, it's generally recognized as being worth something by most people.) They're also worth something just because people want them really badly. High demand and low supply easily make cheap pieces of plastic worth a lot of money. You can quibble that you don't think people OUGHT to be demanding this sort of thing, but my house, and I would bet money yours, are filled with equally useless trinkets, and ones that we paid more for than just the price of their materials.
I'm personally staring at my Godzilla figurine(toy) collection right now.
Obviously you don't get how the market works at all. People are selling things for $200-$500 because people ARE buying them. So it's safe to assume that they think the price is fair. You seem to have it totally backwards. Why would people with no jobs think that the high prices were fair? The people with no money are always the ones whining that they can't buy well-made art for $10 or points.
And if you meant the opposite of what I just mentioned above, then I just suggest you word your complaint better.
