My Little Pony Sunday: Boysenberry Pie

Boysenberry Pie is one of the more unusually-coloured ponies in generation 1 as you don’t see the purple body/ ellow hair combo elsewhere (though Lemondrop from year 2 has the inverse colouring) and the intensity is a hallmark of later generation ponies.

Theatre Candy in the 80s

I was in the drug store the other day and noticed amongst the plethora of food items now stocked there was a sale on movie theatre candy.

Recently found a nice Cotton Candy from someone on EBay and I was pretty excited. Cotton Candy was part of the original 6 earth ponies issued in G1 and she was reissued as part of the 25th anniversary pack with a really strange choice of hair colour but also separately as a G1 baby.   Share...
