My Little Pony were originally produced by Hasbro for twelve years from 1982 to 1994 (Generation 1, or G1), with the last two years only being sold in UK/Europe, making them very collectable to US buyers. There were literally hundreds (if not thousands!) of ponies produced, as well as ample playsets and other pony accessories.

MLP Year 2 had four new sets of ponies, plus three new sets of plush ponies. There was one new special offer pony and five new playsets produced. There were also many non US pony variations.

This set was also re-released in the UK around Year 5 with Snuzzle instead of Peachy (no other changes), most probably due to excess stock of both items.

It was re-issued again in Year 6, re-named "Brush Me Beautiful Boutique" (in US), but was still called "Grooming Parlour" in UK. The playset's colour was changed, as was Twinkle's, but in the US it no longer came with a pony. In the UK however, it came came with new pony Kiss Curl.
