Baby Ponies with First Tooth

Baby Ponies with First Teeth were just that! They were the offspring of both So Soft and Twinkle-Eyes Ponies (although all had regular eyes). Baby Lickety-Split was the only pony to have been sold in another form previously, and all the ponies were babies of existing characters (although not all of these adults were sold in the UK).

Each pony came with a toothbrush and toothpaste, a pair of Party Panties (instead of a nappy), a hair ribbon and a comb. They also each came with two of the following small accessories: training cup, pillow with tooth (in pocket), teething ring, Glo Worm, stacking toy or bib.

Big Brother Ponies [UK name "Adventure Boy Ponies"]

Big Brother Ponies were the first set of male ponies to be introduced. They were a little larger than the female ponies and had Clydesdale-style hair molded on their hooves.

In the UK they were called Adventure Boy Ponies and some had different names. The UK also had an exclusive set of male ponies called Mountain Boy Ponies, released slightly earlier than this set.

Each pony came with a hat which matched their symbol's theme, coloured neckerchief and brush or comb.

Flutter Ponies

Four more Flutter Ponies were introduced in Year 5, now with slightly stronger wing holders. They had non-flower themed symbols and still had a smaller version of their symbol on either their cheek or forehead like last years ponies. In the US Rosedust and Lily returned from Year 4 unchanged, and in the UK it was Morning Glory and Lily. This was the last set of Flutter Ponies, to be taken over by two differently designed winged ponies released in Years 6 and 7.

Each pony came with a metallic ribbon and hair pick, and in the UK only a round puffy sticker.

Mountain Boy Ponies [UK set]

Mountain Boy Ponies were only sold in the UK. They were made in the Big Brother Ponies mould, but unlike that set they all had freckles and were meteorologically rather than sports/hobby themed.

Each pony came with a brush or comb and round puffy sticker.

Newborn Twins

Newborn Twins were the smallest ponies so far. There were six sets, some of which were identical (differently posed to tell them apart), some had the same coloured bodies but different coloured hair and some had opposite colouring. Each pair had the same symbol. More Newborns were released in Year's 6, 7, 11 and 12.

Each pair came with one large accessory and a few smaller ones. Each set also came with two nappies (in one box), two white bottles, and two ribbons.

In the UK only Dibbles & Nibbles and Sniffles & Snookums were sold. They came with the same accessories as the US release and also a round, puffy sticker.

Pony Friends

"Baby animal friends for all your ponies."

Pony Friends were a set of four different animals for the ponies to play with. They each had a symbol or design on their bodies and long brushable hair. A second set of four was released in Year 6.

The US Hasbro catalogue pictured these four friends with a set of dolls similar to Molly and a First Tooth Baby Sundance. Unfortunately these were just prototypes and were never released. None of the Pony Friends were released in the UK.

Pony Friends each came with a brush or comb and a hair ribbon.

Princess Ponies [+ UK set, Euro variations + prototypes]

Princess Ponies had tinsel in their hair and raised medallions for symbols. Each medallion was a different shape and had a gem in the middle.

In the US each pony came with a Bushwoolie attendant (an odd looking creature from the cartoon TV series) whereas in the UK they each came with a baby dragon attendant (like Spike). The UK Princess Ponies also had different names (as specified below), but otherwise were no different. Apart from the dragons, all accessories remained the same although some were different colours.

Each Princess Pony came with an attendant, glittered hairpick with stars, gold-trimmed ribbon, sparkling magic wand, damsel hat with raised silver-glittered shapes & gold-trimmed streamers.

Soft Sleepy Newborns

Soft Sleepy Newborns were approximately nine inches high, with hard vinyl bodies (not plush or flocked as implied by their name) and long brushable hair. They had Beddy-Bye Eyes with long black eyelashes that open and close, and you could also gently pull on their tails and their eyes would close.

None of these ponies were released in the UK.

They each came with a bonnet and pants, dummy, large grooming brush and a hair ribbon.
