Year 6 saw a return of the Twice as Fancy ponies with some of the most sought-after TAF ponies collectors now search for. It also saw new ponies with some standard old toy gimmicks- ponies with magic picture symbols, growing hair, nodding heads and sweet scents. The Big Brother ponies made a brief comeback and new newborn twins came prancing into hearts everywhere. While there were quite a few extensions of existing pony groups in year 6, Hasbro tried once more to vary the Sea Ponies and re-did the Flutter Pony idea as Summerwing Ponies.
**Ponies have multiple images which sometimes include backcards and accessories. Make sure to click through the galleries!
TWICE AS FANCY PONIES (TAF)
Munchy, Yum Yum and Night Glider pranced on after the end of G1 to become top collector’s items, but all of year 6’s TAFs are high up on pony aficionado’s lists.
Twice as pretty for double the fun! (*from packaging)
Munchy: After the last baseball game of the season, Munchy called the ponies together to give them a special surprise. “Follow me!” she cried, leading them to a pile of baseball bats and baseballs. When she wiggled her nose, the bats burst into hot dogs, and the balls turned into bags of french fries! “This is better than a home run!” Slugger cheered, biting into his third hot dog! (*from backcard)
The most sought-after of the TAF ponies, Munchie is probably the most unique of all ponies in her markings!
Yum Yum: Yum Yum likes to make special candy for the ponies. One hot summer day, she flew to a cloud and gathered cool raindrops. When she sprinkled a little stardust and rainbow dew on the raindrops, the drops turned into colorful candy! The ponies nibbled the cool candies in the warm sun, delighted with all the delicious flavors in Yum yum’s magical candy! (*from backcard)
Buttons: Buttons loves to decorate her dresses with beautiful buttons. One night, when all the ponies were asleep, she decorated Ponyland with a basket of buttons. In the morning, the ponies looked outside their windows and were delighted to see buttons glittering in fluffy clouds and twinkling in trees. Buttons wove buttons in their hair to finish her unusual decorations! (*from backcard)
Buttons had an earlier So-Soft version produced which is a different colour scheme from her TAF release.
Night Glider: One evening, Night Glider gave a midnight party. When the ponies arrived, Night Glider blinked her eyes to make twinkling stars dance in the sky. As Mr. Moon sang a lullaby, the ponies waltzed with the glittering stars until Mr. Sun smiled in the sky. Night Glider sprinkled stardust on the ponies to give them sweet dreams, as the sleepy ponies slipped into their beds. (*from backcard)
Merriweather: Merriweather likes to go on summer picnics. One day she packed a basket of snacks and skipped to a field of soft grass. As she opened her picnic basket, a dark cloud floated by and began to rain on her! Merriweather winked at the cloud, turning the raindrops into tiny rainbows. “What a beautiful day for a picnic!” she laughed, nibbling a slice of watermelon. (*from backcard)
Bonnie Bonnets: Bonnie Bonnets strolled in a pretty garden. “These are such lovely flowers!” she thought, admiring a bush of red roses. She picked a rose and wove it into her hair. Suddenly she had an idea! When she blinked her eyes at the rose, she turned it into a bonnet of rose petals! “Now I can always wear beautiful roses,” Bonnie Bonnets smiled to herself, trying on her new bonnet. (*from backcard)
MAGIC MESSAGE PONIES
Magic Message ponies aren’t terribly rare but they still hold a fond place in memory with collectors and many will still change if heat is applied long enough (from a finger rub).
Gently rub pony’s design to reveal hidden surpise! (*from packaging)
Cuddles: In the corner of the nursery, a little teddy bear was crying because his stuffing was coming out at the seams and he lost the buttons from his vest. Cuddles saw the bear and had an idea. She took some silken threads from a spider’s web and sewed his seams up and down. Then she replaced the missing buttons with sparkling seashells from the beach. She even wrapped a pretty bow tie around his neck. The bear was so happy, he picked a special bouquet of flowers just for Cuddles! (*from backcard)
Cuddles’ teddy bear symbol changes when heat is applied. On one side the bear’s tummy shows a heart, on the other side, a flower.
Cloud Dreamer: As Cloud Dreamer watched the clouds forming different designs in the sky, one cloud turned into a fluffy white castle! Cloud Dreamer rode the rainbow’s arch to the drawbridge. Inside the castle, the walls sparkled with silvery glitter. She climbed to the top of a tower and found a little dragon who wanted to play with her! The two friends floated through the sky, waving hello to the ponies on the ground and sprinkling them with the cloud’s silver glitter to wish them a happy day at play. (*from backcard)
Cloud dreamer’s symbol is a blue cloud. When heat is applied, one siode shows a castle in a lighter blue cloud and on the other, a dragon. Please note the symbol also includes a tiny white cloud to the upper right and a matcjing small white cloud on her right cheek.
Magic Hat: “Abracadabra, presto chango!” Magic Hat chanted, trying to pull a rabbit from a hat. But her trick didn’t work. “You forgot to wave the wand,” said a little bird flying by. Magic Hat tried the trick again and followed the bird’s advice. “It worked,” she sang as she pulled out a bunny. Suddenly, the hat started to wobble. Magic Hat reached down and pulled out another bunny, and another, and yet another! “All it takes is a little magic,” Magic Hat laughed, hopping around with the bunnies! (*from backcard)
My Magic Hat had her symbol either removed somehow or painted over but it should be an upturned purple magic hat with a bouquet of red flowers coming out. When heat is applied, a chick appears in the flowers on one side, a rabbit with a bowtie on the other.
Floater: Floater was very excited as she stepped into the basket with Lofty for her first balloon ride. Up, up, up they went. They waved to Mr. Sun along the way, rode down the rainbow like a slide, then glided over to a cloud that looked just like an ice cream cone! “Take a lick,” lofty laughed, as the cloud magically became a giant scoop of chocolate ice cream. Ponyland was such a wonderful place, even high above the clouds! (*from backcard)
Floater’s symbol is 2 pink balloons and one green balloon in the middle. When heat is applied, the symbols for I Love Ice Cream (I-heart-ice cream cone) appear. On the o side, the symbols for I Love You (I-heart-U) appear. Though I had Floater and I can’t remember ever getting the symbol to change all the way!
Mirror Mirror: “It’s storytime,” Mirror Mirror said to the Newborn Twins, carefully placing her magic hand mirror on her lap. “Once upon a time there was a beautiful princess,” she began, holding up the mirror. Suddenly, the twins saw a Princess Pony in the mirror! As Mirror Mirror described a wicked witch, the character appeared in the glass. “Now it’s naptime,” said Mirror Mirror at the end of the story. She held up the mirror, and the twins laughed with delight. The mirror showed them fast asleep in their cribs! (*from backcard)
Mirror Mirror’s symbol is a framed oval mirror. When heat is applied, a princess appears on one side and a witch on the other. Please note there is a matching tiny mirror frame symbol on her right cheek.
Windy: One March day, Windy was flying her colourful new kite in the cool Spring breeze. Suddenly a gust of wind carried her kite into a tree! Windy tugged on the string, but it was hopelessly tangled in the branches. “Mr Tree, could you untangle my kite?” asked Windy. The tree wiggled his leaves and slipped the kite off his branches, gently placing it on the ground. Windy winked an eye at the tree and filled his branches with big red apples to thank him for freeing her kite! (*from backcard)
Windy’s symbol is a dark tree (which often looks like the pony has been taken to with a Sharpie!). When heat is applied, one side shows a kite caught in the tree and the other side shows green apples on the tree.
BRUSH ‘N GROW PONIES
Their hair makes them the envy of all the ponies in Ponyland (and me too!). Brush ‘n Grow Ponies’ tails can be brushed out to twice the length for styling and pulled back in by turning their head from side to side. These ladies came with a bursh and comb, 2 barrettes and 2 ribbons for all that hair.
Dazzling pony with a tail that grows extra long hair! (*from packaging)
Bouquet: One windy day, the wind blew Bouquet’s new hat right off her head. Just as she caught the colorful hat, the wind pulled it higher – carrying Bouquet into the air! The surprised pony flew into the bright blue sky. She nibbled marshmallow clouds as she sailed past them. A little robin flew beside her, chirping merrily with her new flying friend. After the wind gently placed Bouquet on the ground, she offered her hat to the other ponies. “Anyone for a ride?” she asked with a smile. (*from backcard)
Braided Beauty: Braided Beauty relaxed on the beach beneath the warm sun. The soothing sound of the waves soon put her fast asleep. As she dozed, a little starfish wove her hair into braids. When she awoke, she was surprised at her new hairdo! Braided Beauty and her little friend spent the day building a big sandcastle and splashing inthe waves. At the end of the day, Braided Beauty hurried home to tell all the ponies about the little starfish who makes pretty braids. (*from backcard)
Ringlets: One day, Ringlets and her friends dressed in some old clothes and shoes they found. As Ringlets placed a floral headband on her head, the flowers on the headband changed into sparkling jewels with long ribbons that touched the floor, and the dress she’d put on turned into a satin gown. Attached to a ribbon was a note that read: THIS HEADBAND BELONGS TO THE PRINCESS PONIES. WHOEVER FINDS IT WILL BECOME A PRINCESS FOR A DAY. As Ringlets pranced about regally, the ponies wondered what her majesty would do next! (*from backcard)
It was the day of the Pony Springtime Ball. Curly Locks arrived at the Pony Perm Shoppe to find that Fifi had no more ribbons to decorate the ponies’ hair! Curly Locks noticed beautiful flowers growing outside the window of the Perm Shoppe. She quickly raced outside and gathered colorful flower petals in a basket. When she blinked her eyes at the basket, the petals turned into silky ribbons! Curly Locks returned to the Pony Perm Shoppe to surprise Fifi with her basket of magical ribbons! (*from backcard)
Twisty Tail: At Twisty Tail’s slumber party, the ponies dressed in their nighties, then munched snacks in the living room. “Let’s try new hair styles,” Twisty Tail suggested. Combs and curlers were scattered everywhere as the ponies styled each other’s hair. As Bouquet brushed Twisty Tail’s hair, she noticed streaks of color appearing with every stroke. “Your hair is changing color!” Bouquet cried. “I tried a new rainbow rinse and it really works,” Twisty Tail laughed, passing it to the others to try. (*from backcard)
Pretty Vision: One day, Pretty Vision found a magical hand mirror that helps make everything prettier. As she looked in the mirror to admire the curls she had arranged on top of her head, a stream of light popped out of the mirror and onto her hair. When Pretty Vision looked in the mirror again, she saw dozens of colorful ribbons wrapped around her curls. “Where did you get such a fabulous hairdo?” Ringlets asked, entering the room. “It was magic,” said Pretty Vision, winking at her mirror. (*from backcard)
The Princesss Ponies were back for another round in year 6, this time without any royal friends/attendants.
Royal beauty with a glimmering jeweled medallion! (*from packaging)
Princess Moondust: One night, as Princess Moondust admired her glittering medallion, she wished that all of Ponyland could shine like the Princess Ponies’ jewels. “It can shine with your magic,” the night wind whispered to her. When Princess Moondust nodded her head, sparkling moondust drifted from the sky, covering trees and grass until all of Ponyland looked as if it was decorated with twinkling jewels. The ponies waltzed in the night, enjoying Princess Moondust’s glistening surprise. (*from backcard)
There are variants of Princess Moondust int he UK which had Princess Dawn’s symbol/cutie mark, both with and without tinsel.
Princess Taffeta: “I need a new hairdo!” Princess Taffeta cried, rushing into the Perm Shoppe an hour before the Royal Ball. While Fifi curled her hair, Taffeta sewed shiny pearls to her gown. “Do you like it?” Fifi asked, finishing the french twist. Excitedly, Taffeta turned to look in the mirror and accidentally spilled lotion all over the dress! Like magic, each drop turned into a dazzling sequin, making the dress even more beautiful! “You’ll really be the belle of the ball!” Fifi laughed. (*from backcard)
Princess Taffeta has a UK variant.
Princess Pristina: As Princess Pristina watched the Baby Ponies picking flowers in a field, she thought of an amusing surprise for her little friends. She blinked her eyes at the flowers, then sat under a tree to enjoy the fun. When Snippy picked a daisy, she found a glittering jewel in the center of the flower! “Look, I found one, too!” cried Graffiti, holding a sweet pea twinkling with jewels. The Baby Ponies gathered bouquets of magical flowers to surprise the Princess Ponies. “Thank you for the surprise!” Snippy laughed as she handed Princess Pristina a bouquet of flowers. (*from backcard)
Princess Pristina had UK variants with different coloured tails and different symbols.
Princess Misty: Deep within the enchanted forest, Princess Misty searched for the answer to how she became a princess. She asked the evergreen trees, but they didn’t know. Neither did the snowy mountains nor the little woodland creatures. But the wise west wind heard her plea and told her that Princess Ponies are the most magical ponies in Ponyland. Their jeweled medallions hold secrets for happiness and their glittering streaks of hair glimmer with good wishes. Hearing this, she set off to make a special wish come true. (*from backcard)
Princess Misty has several international variants including male variants.
Princess Sunbeam: Princess Sunbeam watched the grey clouds gather in the sky. Inside the castle, the ponies sadly put aside their plan to join the Princess Ponies for a tea party in the courtyard. Princess Sunbeam called upon her magic to save the day for her friends. She sent sunbeams from her medallion and pushed the grey clouds beyond the farthest hills, until the sky was bright blue. The ponies cheered at the beautiful day created for them with Princess Sunbeam’s royal magic. (*from backcard)
Princess Sunbeam had several UK variants including a hybrid variant between she and Princess Ruby.
Princess Dawn: “Rise and shine,” Princess Dawn smiled, calling her sleepy friends to breakfast. But no one got out of bed. Princess Dawn had an idea! She arranged a tray of food and placed it in the center of the bedroom. She blinked her eyes and the juice pitcher magically became a flowing fountain. Platters of eggs, toast and muffins floated around the fountain as the ponies jumped out of bed. “Pass the jam please,” they laughed, munching on this unusual breakfast in bed. (*from backcard)
Princess Dawn had several international variants, including a hybrid combination version with Princes Ruby in the UK and also a male Prince Pony variant.
SUNDAE BEST PONIES
The Sundae Best Ponies all had an ice cream theme and were scented like the treats in their raised, molded symbols. While not as long-wearing as say, the Strawberry Shortcake doll line, I still totally remember the scent of my Peppermint Crunch and it was pretty great while it lasted!
Ice cream scented pony with a sweet tooth for treats! (*from packaging)
Coco Berry: Coco Berry likes to top her double decker ice cream cones with chocolate sprinkles. One evening, while sleepily making herself a midnight snack, she accidentally dropped some juicy grapes into her ice cream cone then covered them with chocolate ice cream. “DEE-LICIOUS,” she thought as she bit into the creamy grape, wondering why she hadn’t thought of this tasty idea before! (*from backcard)
Coco Berry has international variants.
Swirly Whirly: Swirly Whirly adds creamy strawberries to all her desserts. The ponies especially like to nibble her strawberry cookies and candies.

Peppermint Crunch has international variants.
Crunch Berry: Near the licorice stick forest is a magnificent hill made of rich chocolate.

Her friends always meet her at the Satin Slipper Sweet Shoppe when Crunch Berry makes her tasty treat! (*from backcard)
Sherbet: On hot summer days Sherbet flies to a fragrant valley where tropical fruit grows. She fills a basket with fruit and heads to the Satic Slipper Sweet Shoppe to create cool tropical treats for all her friends.

Banana Surprise: Every banana in Banana Surprise’s magic banana grove has a tasty surprise beneath its peel. Banana Surprise adds them to the desserts she makes for her friends.

It’s always fun to see what’s hidden in a banana split made by Banana Surprise! (*from backcard)
Banana Surprise has international variants.
HAPPY TAILS PONIES
Happy Tails Ponies had a mechanism in the rear that enabled the tail to twirl around when it was squeezed. The symbols/cutie marks of these ponies are all animal-themed with a scene featuring 2 animals. Each of these ponies came with a tailed hair pick and animal-shaped ring clip that fit around the tail.
Give her a hug to make her tail twirl with love! Gently hug your pony to make her tail twirl around and around! Create lots of hair styles with the tail clip, hair clip and ribbon! (*from packaging)
Woosie: As Woosie strolled past a pond, she met a group of mice sitting on the shore. “We were sailing, but our paper boat sank,” they sadly explained to Woosie. Glancing around, Woosie spotted a big maple leaf. With a twirl of her tail, she magically turned the leaf into a little wooden boat with a tiny white sail! As the happy mice leaped into the boat, Woosie twirled her tail again to send the boat sailing across the water. “Bon voyage!” laughed Woosie, waving to her friends. (*from backcard)
There is a lavender variant of Woosie both domestic and international and in the UK there are unicorn Princess pony variants of Woosie without the “happy” tail.
Squeezer: Squeezer was planting flowers in her garden but soon grew tired of digging holes in the ground. Just then, adorable little puppies romped by. Squeezer had a wonderful idea! “Let’s play a game,” she said to the puppies. She began to dig a hole, and the puppies eagerly began to dig holes, too! When the puppies finished digging, Squeezer twirled her tail and the flowers magically popped into the holes! “What a fun way to plant flowers!” laughed Squeezer, joining the puppies for a nap under the trees. (*from backcard)
There are several UK variants of Squeezer with no tail mechanism including one also missing her symbol.
Romper: “Come and play, bunnies!” Romper called to her furry friends one sunny summer day. They all hopped to a field to play a game of tag, then they stopped to nibble sweet clover when it was time for a snack. Romper was so happy that her tail began to twirl around and around! With each twirl, her pony magic drifted over the field, turning the clover into tiny bells that chimed gently in the breeze! What a beautiful sound the little bells made, calling all the pony friends to play. (*from backcard)
Romper also has UK variants with and without her symbol and without the tail mechanism.
Tall Tales: Tall Tales watched fluffy clouds float by. “That cloud looks like a castle! And that one looks like a bear!” she said. “I’d love to play with the clouds,” she thought, twirling her tail. Suddenly, the clouds magically turned into giraffes! “Come and play with us!” they called to Tall Tales. Tall Tales and her new friends played hide-and-seek until stars filled the sky. As tall Tales climbed into bed, she could hardly wait until tomorrow to see what other friends her pony magic could make with the clouds! (*from backcard)
Tall Tales has some interesting variants which include those without tail mechanisms, a Princess variant, one with no mane, and the most famous of all- Bobbie. Bobbie is not an official Hasbro name but rather one assigned by the My Little Pony Scrapbook website author E. A. Woolley who owns one of these pink-haired ladies and afterwards it spread through collectors as an “unofficial” official name for this particular variant.
Tabby: As Tabby skipped through a field, the long grass tickled her tummy, making her giggle. Her magical tail twirled as she laughed, brushing against the rainbow. Suddenly, lion cubs scampered down the rainbow and tumbled around Tabby! “We love to tickle each other!” they shouted to tabby, pouncing on each other and tickling their furry tummies. Tabby joined the baby lions in a game of tickling, until they were all tired from giggling so much! In Ponyland, even tickles are magical! (*from backcard)
Tabby has several Princess variations in the UK with no symbol or tail mechanism.
Tossles: One day, Tossles met fuzzy bear cubs playing in the forest. “Join us for honeycakes and tea,” they said to Tossles. Inside the cave, Tossles nibbled the sweet cakes and sipped the tasty tea. “You’re so pretty and colorful,” said the baby bears, glancing at their dark, gloomy cave. Tossles had a bright idea! When she twirled her tail, rainbow ribbons and shimmering sunbeams floated into the cave, filling it with color and light! “What a beautiful surprise!” exclaimed the cubs as Tossles took another slice of cake.

The happy twins leaped and jumped in the magical fountain, playfully splashing Chief with the cool water to thank him for his delightful surprise! (*from backcard)

WATER COLOR BABY SEA PONIES
It’s kind of odd to think it took until year 6 to apply the wildly popular water colour-chaning capability to Sea Ponies of all things, but Hasbro did it with thewir Watercolor Baby Sea Ponies. Honestly, they didn’t change all that wildly and many now have lost their magic some 35 years later.
With body and hair that change color in a splash! (*from packaging)
Baby Sealight: “Splish, Splash!” cried sealight as she paddled through the blue sea in her turtle float. “I can make the biggest splashes of all!” she said. She playfully sprayed a friendly fish and splashed cool water on Foamy as she floated beside her. Just then, a dolphin swam next to Sealight. “I can make big splashes, too!” he said. He disappeared under the waves, then zoomed out of the water and landed with a very big SPLASH, spraying the delightful pony with cool water. (*from backcard)
Baby Sealight’s body/hair changed to pink/yellow.
Baby Foamy: “Let’s try to catch a big, big wave that’ll carry us right up to the sky!” Foamy said to her friends. King Neptune heard her wish and sent a giant wave her way. The Watercolor Baby Sea Ponies jumped on top of it and sat very still as the wave carried them higher and higher, all the way up to the fluffiest cloud in the sky. They played there for hours, riding the cloud like a magic carpet around the sky, then slid down the rainbow, landing onto the ocean with a great big SPLASH! (*from backcard)
Baby Foamy’s body/hair turned pale yellow/light pink.
Baby Misty: Misty was excited about the mermaids’ party at their underwater castle and wanted to bring them a special gift. She gathered pretty seashells and tied them together with silky seaweed. The rainbow helped by pouring colors all over the shells while the sun made the seaweed into long ribbons that sparkled like strands of pearls. “Thank you, Misty!” the mermaids exclaimed, weaving the ribbons into their hair, saving the last one for their friend to wear.

Baby Wavedancer: Wavedancer likes to drift on the water on warm evenings, gazing up at the twinkling stars in the sky. “I wish I could shine like a star,” she said to Misty, as they wiggled in their floats.

Summerwing Ponies were like the Flutter Ponies’ little cousins in that they’re bodies were smaller than the Flutters but just bigger than the Baby Ponies and a little thinner. Hasbro improved slightly on the wings in that they were colourful and made of a more flexible plastic that has kept many of them more intact over time than those of the Flutter Ponies. Their only big drawback is that many of them have faded over time, losing their butterfly-like patterns.
