Earth Ponies [+ UK/Euro & other variations]

Earth Ponies saw Blossom and Cotton Candy make a return from Year 1's Original Ponies, now with concave feet. Bubbles and Seashell were the only two general release ponies ever made in a seated position. They are also the only two ponies to have a diamond symbol on their noses.

Applejack and Bow Tie made a return in Year 3's new set of Earth Ponies and three of this years ponies were also produced as Plush Ponies.

Each pony came with a flower shaped brush, a ribbon and a round scented puffy sticker with their picture on it.

There were several non US variations of these characters released as various times.

Plush Ponies [+ UK/Euro variations]

There were three sets of Plush Ponies produced, each containing three ponies - Plush Earth Ponies, Plush Rainbow Ponies and Plush Unicorns & Pegasi. They were about 12 inches tall. There were also a few variations in pose but I'm not sure which countries they were produced for. Plush Ponies would return again in Year's 3 and 4.

Sea Ponies [+ UK set]

Sea Ponies each came with a shell they could sit in that stuck onto the bath via a suction cup. Sea Ponies returned again for the second and only time in Year 3 with six new characters and new design shells. Year 3 also saw the first Baby Sea Ponies, which took over from the adult version.

An alternative set was sold in the UK, where Wavedancer was joined by two new Sea Ponies and their shell colours differed.

Each pony also came with a shell shaped brush, a ribbon and a round scented puffy sticker with their picture on it.
