Playsets


Dream Castle [1st issue]

Dream Castle included pony Majesty, pet dragon Spike and many accessories.

Dream Castle was re-issued in Year 3 unchanged, then again in Year 7 in different colours. Spike's colours also varied slightly but the playset no longer included Majesty. However, Majesty was re-released (unchanged) in Year 7 along with Sprinkles, Lemon Drop, Baby Tiddly-Winks and Baby Half Note as a set of Playset Ponies as a special offer.

Pretty Parlor [1st issue, UK name "Grooming Parlour"]

In the US this playset was called  "Pretty Parlour" and in the UK "Grooming Parlour". There were no other differences.

  • 2 Hats
  • Saddle, Bridle and Reins
  • Blanket
  • 2 Hair Ribbons
  • Comb
  • Heart-shaped Brush
  • Name Tags
  • Pet cat "Twinkles"


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.
