They trotted into our lives in 1983 and now they’re back. My Little Pony, the ultimate diminutive pony collectible, returns to celebrate its 35th anniversary. If you missed the pony craze the first time around, here’s your chance to jump on.
Toymaker, Basic Fun, has recreated the six original ponies; Minty, Butterscotch, Blossom, Snuzzle, Cotton Candy and Blue Belle with brighter colors and shiner hair. Like the originals each pony package includes the classic accessories, a matching comb and hair ribbon and new, a mini collector poster.
The precious polymers are only available at Target or Toys R Us. Please note that you can’t order your new pony online, just like the original, you’ll need to trot down to your local retailer. If you shop at Toys R Us, you’ll need to hurry. Yesterday the company announced that they are closing all stores, possibly as soon as May.
Famous for their fragrance and multicolored manes and tails, Rainbow Ponies Sunlight, Starshine, Windy, Parsol, Skydancer and Cotton Candy will also relaunch later this year. WARHorses will keep you posted!
