Clipper

"One day, Clipper, the new boy pony, hopped into his bright red sailboat and drifted over the blue sea to find mysterious Glitter Island, home of the Sparkle Ponies. Everyone in Ponyland new of these unusual ponies, but no one had ever seen them!"

Clipper was a chunky little boy pony and had shorter hair than other baby ponies. He was only available through a special mail order offer in Year 6 & 7.

Sparkle Ponies

"Clipper soon spotted a magical island that glittered in the moonlight. When he stepped onto the shore, beautiful ponies with sparkling bodies and shimmering strands in their long hair were there to greet him. When they blinked their eyes, twinkling stars suddenly filled the sky and the moon glowed even more brightly! 'You must be the Sparkle Ponies!' Clipper laughed with delight. 'Welcome to Glitter Island!' the Sparkle Ponies chanted to Clipper. 'We add sparkling light to every day and night and make every place a dazzling delight!' The Sparkle Ponies winked at the sky, filling it with shooting comets! Then they wove a moonbeam path between Glitter Island and Ponyland, so Clipper's friends could join the party!"

Sparkle Ponies had see-through glitter-filled plastic bodies and tinsel in their hair. They each came with a brush or comb and a ribbon.

Sparkle Ponies were available through a special offer in year 6 & 7. In Year 7 they were also available to buy in shops, but differed slightly. The special offer ponies had a small symbol under one eye, where as the shop bought ones did not. Some also had different coloured hair. This offer was not available in the UK.
