My Little Pony :: Ponies ~ Year 1 [1982 - 1983]

The first year of production saw the release of six Earth Ponies. They were based on Hasbro's 1981 toy called My Pretty Pony, a 14" hard plastic pony with brushable hair (see bottom).

A huge thanks to Renee for all the pamphlet scans and to everyone else who has helped with images, including many eBay sellers!

Original Ponies [aka: flat foot]

There were six Original Ponies produced and were a slightly different shape from ponies produced in this pose in future years. Their feet were closer together and heads slightly lower. They are easy to tell apart from their re-produced versions as the originals all have flat, rather than concave, feet. They each came with a comb and ribbon.

Blossom and Cotton Candy returned in Year 2's Earth Ponies, Butterscotch in Year 2's UK Gymkhana playset and all six returned in Year 4 in a special offer called Collector Ponies.
