My Little Pony :: Dream Beauties
Dream Beauties were produced by Hasbro in Year 8 of the My Little Pony line (1989-90) and were marked as the grown up version of My Little Pony. There were six sets with eighteen ponies in all. They all had long manes which had a row of fixed plastic beads running along the holes. Each pony came with a brush, comb or pick and a hair-clip, all made from My Little Pony designs.

Appologies if I've missed anyone out. I collected many of these images so long ago I can not longer trace the owners.
