Glow 'n Show Ponies [UK name "Glowing Magic Ponies" + UK/Euro variation]

Glow 'n Show Ponies were the first ponies to glow in the dark. They had transparent coloured bodied, similar to the Sparkle Ponies, only filled with tiny stars and hearts rather than glitter. They had two-tone horizontally stripped hair and it was the hearts and stars inside their bodies which could glow.

Each pony came with a butterfly brush in the US. In UK/Europe they came with a comb each (as pictured left).

In the UK this set was called Glowing Magic Ponies. There was also one colour variation.

Precious Pocket Ponies [UK name "Pocket Friends Ponies"]

Precious Pocket Ponies were unique in several ways. They were slightly larger than other ponies, produced in two new poses (one of which was never used again), and their manes were bi-coloured in equal amounts with mono coloured tails matching one of the colours in their manes. Most significantly they only had symbols on one hip (the left side being left blank). The symbols themselves were also unique in their design, being a mixture of a 3D plastic pocket with a printed design behind. Inside each pocket, attached to a length of silver thread, was a small plastic toy which could be taken out.

Each pony came with a flower brush in the US. In the UK/Europe they each came with an original comb and ribbon.

In the UK this set was called Pocket Friends Ponies, and each pony had a different name from the US release.

Princess

Princess had no resemblance to the previous Princess Ponies. There were two ponies in this set and neither had a name other than Princess. They had iridescent tinsel in their hair and had unique long black eyelashes.

Each pony came with a tiara, fur trimmed cape and bullfrog brush.

It is interesting to note that the same tiaras were also used for some of the Secret Beauties dolls produced in 1992.

Secret Surprise Ponies

Secret Surprise Ponies were larger than adult ponies and had a Keypers style lockable compartment. They had no symbols but instead had hard plastic saddles which would swing open at the back when unlocked via the keyhole on their chests.

Inside each pony was a "secret surprise", either a plastic ring or bracelet for the ponies owner to wear. Each pony also came with a bow comb, a design unique to these ponies.

In the UK these ponies had alternative names to the US release.
