I love the Billy bookcases, but they are tall, and I am short, and seeing the Ponies on the top shelf can be problematic.
|This is what the top shelf of one Pony shelf looks like|
|This is my view from my height. Where are the Big Brothers?|
The last type of riser that I use for displaying my collection are homemade popsicle stick shelves. They're not pretty, they're not the most effective, but they're cheap, and back when I was a student, that was a big plus. And you can build them to different heights, as you need. The Big Brother Ponies on that top shelf were displayed on these.
