On my rounds in Rayleigh last week I came across a fresh load of donated G3 My Little Ponies, twelve to be precise. I even found one G1 pony (Baby Ribbon). Then the following day I spotted a l’il bag of L’il Babies and Oodles, a large G4 pony and Rainbow Dash duvet set.
L’il Babies & Oodles
There were eight L’il Babies (Hasbro) and one Oodles (LJN Toys) in the bag, all for £0.50. I love the screaming baby with his tongue out!
I used some L’il Babies is photography project a few years back.
My Little Pony
The ponies wasn’t too bad, but I decided to have a go at washing and styling for a change (mostly my finds just get a brushing then a shelving). Here’s what they looked like before…
And here is Bacchus enjoying the brushing…
Groomed ponies! I’m really pleased with the results, and it was easy to achieve. They all got a dunking, their hair conditioned and brushed, then the wet manes wrapped around chunky pens to dry. Their tails were just wrapped around a back leg.
It worked so well I washed all my other pones too!
G1 My Little Pony ~ “Baby Ribbon”
Baby Ribbon came with the Baby Pony Play and Care set, which was sold in the UK, Germany and France in 1985/86.

A couple of these ponies have lost their manes.
