Penny's Pony Club (1987 Fun Stop/The Just Group)
« on: Sunday 09 May 2010, 05:50 pm »
I loved these little toys when I was a kid. All of them are from my childhood collection except the carded one.





I got all the characters except Michelle and Magic. I always thought she was bizarrely tall and kinda snooty-looking.











This pair of horses was sold separately. I think I might have gotten one of the gift sets pictured on the back of the card, which is where the non-jump accessories came from.

I think they were a bigger line in the UK with more characters and such. I was going to mention that up there, but forgot. Heh. Just woke up from a nap!  ;D

Did they make a MLP-style version of these? (Larger?)

I feel like I remember some odd looking fakies that might have just been based on those books. (Was there more than one book?)

This is the cartoonist's website:

I don't know of any bigger ones, but he seems very popular, so there well could be.

Nevermind. I was thinking of Star Hill Ponies. Although... they are also by the Just Group!

Haha. Seems like it was a cute stop-motion cartoon.

Found the post I remembered about the Thelwell ones:

Hi everyone, thanks for letting me join your group  :)
I'm from Australia and collect the Penny's pony club toys. Unfortunately there are hardly any collectors here and Google led me to your group.
I have 2 stable sets and numerous horses / riders / jumps and carts.
Is anyone here collecting them still?
I don't know how to attach photos here yet :'(
