Year 7 was huge in its size and returned with another 2 lines of scented ponies, a reprise of the Twice as Fancy ponies with a colour-changing feature and most notably in this year, the Loving Family ponies which included a mother, father and baby brother or sister with a corresponding international sibling.

MERRY GO ROUND PONIES
While ponies and merry go rounds go hand in hand, it wasn’t until year 7 that Hasbro put them together. Merry Go Round Ponies did not have symbols/cutie marks; rather, their carousel trappings were molded and raised from their backs and necks.

SUNNY BUNCH: Sunny Bunch had a special trick to perform for the magic show at the Ponyland Fair. After letting a bunch of colorful balloons float in the air, she swished her tail and POP – a red balloon burst, turning into a bouquet of red roses. Then Sunny Bunch blinked her eyes and POP-POP, two green balloons burst into a shower of fluttering maple leaves. Soon the sky was filled with bright flowers and leaves! The other ponies were so thrilled they gave Sunny Bunch a surprise of their own – a beautiful cape decorated with flowers! (*from backcard)
SPARKLER: Sparkler hoped to win the contest for having the best-tasting pie at the Ponyland Fair. The mouth-watering aroma of freshly baked apple, blueberry and strawberry pies filled the air as the judges sampled each treat. When they tasted Sparkler’s pie, the judges smiled and agreed it was the most delicious of all! Sparkler was presented with a shiny jeweled cape for winning the contest, but none of the other ponies semmed to notice because they were too busy munching Sparkler’s award-winning pie. (*from backcard)
TASSELS: “Throw six balls into the basket to win a magic cape!” Tassels shouted from her booth at the Ponyland Fair. Many ponies tried but only Sparkler got six balls in the basket. “Why is it a magic cape?” asked Sparkler, wrapping it around her shoulders. “Touch your nose,” suggested Tassles with a smile. When Sparkler touched her nose, the hearts on the cape changed into flowers! All the ponies began to throw balls, hoping to win a magic cape, too! (*from backcard)
BRILLIANT BLOSSOMS: Brilliant Blossoms put on a cape and hat decorated with colorful flowers and hearts, then joined her friends for a fun day at the Ponyland Fair. “Let’s go on the swings,” she suggested, hopping on a swing and laughing as it began to spin around and around! Suddenly, a gust of wind caught her cape and sent it fluttering through the air! Brilliant Blossoms blew a kiss at the cape, and it magically changed into hundreds of paper flowers and hearts that showered all over the delighted ponies at the Ponyland Fair! (*from backcard)
FLOWER BOUQUET: One night, all the ponies hurried to the Ponyland Fair to see Flower Bouquet’s light show. As the ponies waited in the dark fairground, Flower Bouquet flipped a switch to turn on the lights, but nothing happened! Quickly, Flower Bouquet flew into the air and touched the lights with a moonbeam. When she touched the last light, the lights burst into pink, yellow and blue flowers glowing brightly in the darkness! She wove some flowers into a beautiful cape and headband for herself as the ponies applauded her fantastic flower show! (*from backcard)
DIAMOND DREAMS: Diamond Dreams and Sparkler spent a bright, sunny afternoon tossing pennies into the wishing well at the Ponyland Fair. As the coins fell into the sparkling water, Diamond Dreams wished for a cape as dazzling as a moonbeam shining in the night. A moment later, Diamond Dreams looked at her reflection in the water and gasped – it showed a shimmering jeweled cape wrapped around her like a queen! “Your wish came true,” smiled Sparkler, who threw a penny into the water and made a special wish of her own.

LAVENDER LACE: “Spring is here!” exclaimed Lavender Lace, smelling the sweet scent of flowers in the air. The ponies eagerly ran outside to pick flowers and play in the sunshine. Lavender Lace strolled in a garden, admiring the beautiful flowers and stopping to sniff their fragrant scents. “This will make a pretty perfume,” she thought, coming upon a lilac bush. With a wink of an eye, she changed one of the lilacs into a tiny perfume jar with a cover! “What a wonderful scent!” she said, opening the jat and dabbing lilac perfume behind her ears! (*from backcard)
DAISY SWEET: “All I need is a dab of perfume!” Daisy Sweet said as she finished dressing for the party. Daisy Sweet reached for the perfume and accidentally tipped over the bottle, splattering perfume all over her new party dress. “I don’t have time to change,” she sighed. Just then, Sweet Suds entered the room and saw the spots on Daisy Sweet’s dress. Smiling, Sweet Suds blinked her eyes and daisies appeared over the spots. Then Sweet Suds pulled a daisy from the hem and tucked it into Daisy Sweet’s hair for a pretty finishing touch. (*from backcard)
RED ROSES: One day, Red Roses found a perfume bottle on her doorstep with a note attached that read “Magical Rose Perfume.” “Why is it magic?” she wondered, spraying the fragrant perfume behind her ears. As she ran to show her friends the mysterious bottle, she stumbled and spilled a few drops of perfume on the floor. POOF! Suddenly, three beautiful red roses lay on the floor where the drops had fallen. “I see you found the present I left for you, Red Roses,” laughed Lavender Lace, handing her friend the magical bouquet of roses! (*from backcard)
SWEET LILY: Sweet Lily sat at her dressing table trying to decide on a new hairdo. Outside her window, two lovebirds watched as she brushed, curled and tried style after style. Chirping a sweet tweet-tweet-tweet, they flew off and returned to Sweet Lily’s windowsill with beautiful lace ribbons from the silver lining of a nearby cloud. Excitedly, Sweet Lily wove the ribbons through her hair, creating a truly beautiful hairdo. Then she twisted the last ribbon into a heart shape and placed it around her two special friends. (*from backcard)
SWEET SUDS: “It’s bath time!” Sweet Suds called to the Newborn Ponies as she filled the tub. Reluctantly, the little ponies scampered in. “We’d rather make mud pies and jump in the leaves,” they sighed through dirty faces. Sweet Suds smiled and poured her special bubble bath into the water. Suddenly, the bubbles began to pop, changing into big, colorful balloons that danced around the tub! “This is more fun than a circus!” the newborns laughed, asking Sweet Suds if they could stay in the tub a little while longer! (*from backcard)
DAINTY DAHLIA: “What a lovely hairdo, Dainty Dahlia!” exclaimed Sweet Lily as the two friends hurried to a party. Suddenly, Dainty Dahlia’s hair got caught in a low tree branch and came undone! “Now what shall I do?” she sighed. Sweet Lily gathered dahlias from a flower garden and wove them into Dainty Dahlia’s hair, creating a hairdo even lovlier than the one before! To thank Sweet Lily for her help, Dainty Dahlia changed a dahlia into a bottle of perfume and sprinkled a few drops of hte pretty scent on her delighted friend! (*from backcard)

All the other ponies playing in the park followed the sweet peppermint scent to the lollipop forest, where Mint Dreams was waiting with luscious lollipops for everyone to enjoy! (*from backcard)
LEMON TREATS: With all the decorations in place, Lemon Treats hurriedly removed Caramel Crunch’s birthday cake from the oven.

Some candies landed on the cake, while others burst into beautiful balloons to welcome the party guests as they arrived! (*from backcard)
SUGAR APPLE: Sugar Apple was making a batch of candy as a special snack for the ponies. “Needs a little more sugar,” she thought, tasting the red mixture. As she reached for the sugar, she accidentally tipped over a bowl of apples and sent them tumbling into the cany mixture! She quickly scooped the apples from the mixture and placed a lollipop stick in each one. As a sweet apple scent filled the kitchen, Sugar Apple tasted one of the candy-coated apples. “What a delicious idea!” she laughed, taking another bite of the tasty treat! (*from backcard)
MOLASSES: “These party invitations will be quite a surprise!” Molasses laughed, as she finished baking gingerbread man cookies one morning.

When they opened their doors, they were delighted to find a party invitation written on one of Molasses’s cookies! “Only Molasses could make an invitation delicious!” laughed Lemon Treats, taking a bite of her cookie! (*from backcard)
CARAMEL CRUNCH: It was raining all over Ponyland, so Caramel Crunch and Lemon Treats decided to go to a movie. “How about a snack for the show?” Lemon Treats asked her friend. Caramel Crunch knew just what to do! She blinked her eyes and … POP-POP-POP … the falling raindrops burst into yummy caramel-coated popcorn! The damp air carried the scent of the sweet treat as the two friends scooped up popcorn for the other ponies. With all the excitement, Caramel Crunch and Lemon Treats forgot about the movie and the dreary, rainy day. (*from backcard)
SUGAR SWEET: After a fun day of playing hide-and-go-seek, Sugar Sweet and Lemon Treats were very hungry. “I’d like something sweet and tasty to eat,” said Sugar Sweet, looking up at the sky. With a swish of her tail, a passing cloud suddenly became a ball of fluffy, pink cotton candy! The two ponies flew up to the candy cloud and munched on the sugary treat until it was all gone! With the delicious candy scent still in the air, Sugar Sweet and Lemon Treats searched for another candy cloud to bring to their friends! (*from backcard)
DANCE ‘N PRANCE PONIES
Dance ‘n Prance ponies have a large bottom between the front legs that, when turned while holding their tails, causes them to “dance” while their tails twirl. They came with hair accessories to keep their manes from tangling with their tails while dancing and some pretty cool jewelry. Originally the Dance ‘n Prance ponies were planned to be a set to include 2 pegasuses, 2 unicorns and 2 earth ponies in slightly different colours and poses but were released as a set of 4 earth ponies and 2 unicorns all in the same pose.

TAP DANCER: The audience at the theater was filled with anticipation as Tap Dancer appeared on stage with her top hat and cane. When the music began to play, Tap Dancer waltzed across the stage, her tail twirling around and around to the pretty melody.

Then she stood at center stage and tipped her hat to the cheering crowd, while dazzling colors fluttered everywhere. (*from backcard)
SONGSTER: Songster peeked into the empty music room and in the castle and found a microphone on the stage. She turned it on and began to sing, her beautiful voice drifting out the open windows and filling the air. Outside, the ponies stopped their games and followed the pretty voice to the music room. When they arrived, they found Songster singing and dancing as her tail twirled with happiness! “Please sing another song!” cried the ponies, applauding Songster’s surprise concert! (*from backcard)
Songster has Argentinian variants as well as known Argentinian prototypes without the dance mechanism in the Collector Pony molds.
PLAYER: It was nearly dark in Ponyland when the ponies gathered under the light of the rainbow. Player brought her guitar and began to strum a lively, happy tune. Soon, the other ponies were dancing to the music, their tails spinning in time to the song. When Player finished the song, she rested her guitar against the rainbow. Suddenly, the guitar started playing by itself! “This guitar is magic!” Player shouted to the other ponies, who were already whirling and twirling to the beat. (*from backcard)
D.J.: “Let’s listen to some music,”D.J. suggested to the ponies, strolling into a room at the castle. She switched on the radio and a happy tune filled the room.

Smiling, D.J. touched the radio with her magic horn, and the musical notes popped out of the radio, dancing in the air!

SWINGER: While the Newborn Ponies were playing outside, Swinger went to the nursery to tidy the room.

Suddenly, the toys began to dance into the toybox and the clothes spun into drawers and closets! “What a magical way to clean a room!” laughed Swinger, waltzing across the floor with a teddy bear! (*from backcard)

STAR HOPPER: “That was a great movie, Star Hopper,” Sunspot said to her friend, turning off the television. “I liked the flying saucer,” said Star Hopper, going to the kitchen to make hot cocoa.

SKY ROCKET: “It’s time to cut your birthday cake,” Twinkler said to Sky Rocket, as the ponies enjoyed the terrific party.

As the clock struck midnight, all the party balloons burst into colorful rockets that zoomed through the sky, leaving a shower of moondust behind. “What a wonderful way to end the party!” Sky Rocket laughed, covered with speckles of moondust. (*from backcard)
SUNSPOT: “Rise and shine!” Sunspot called to the sleeping ponies, but they only yawned and snuggled deeper into their beds. “I know how to wake them!” she thought, flying into the air. She flew up to her friend, Mr. Sun, and whispered in his ear. Smiling happily, he sent sunbeams into the ponies’ bedroom windows. The sunbeams filled each room and sprinkled glittering flecks of sunshine on the ponies! They awoke with smiling faces, and cheerfully tossed some of the bright flecks on Sunspot as she skipped into their bedrooms. (*from backcard)

Napper gave the moon a big hug, covering herself moondust that glittered and sparkled like the stars! (*from backcard)

When the Playtime Baby Brother Ponies arrived at the party, they were surprised to see the alphabet written in the sky with sparkling stardust! Some of the stardust floated to the ground, covering Twinkler with glittering specks! (*from backcard)

It was a very special gift indeed, thought Baby Glider as she waved goodbye to the smiling butterfly. (*from backcard)

SWEETHEART SISTER PONIES
Sweetheart Sister Ponies are sort of the teen ponies of Ponyland and are instantly recognizable by their body shape which is rather like a tall Flutter Pony.

BABY YO-YO: It was the day of the Ponyland Fair, and Yo-Yo entered the yo-yo contest ready to perform her new tricks. When it was her turn, the string somehow got caught in her hair! Seeing her friend in trouble, Tappy tapped her foot and suddenly, the string burst into colorful streamers and balloons that fell on the crowd! “Show us more great tricks!” Tappy laughed, winking at her friend. (*from backcard)
BABY TAPPY: When Tappy was alone in the nursery one day, she tried on her first shoes. She took a few steps and discovered that the shoes make a tapping noise on the nursery floor. Giggling, she put on a record and began to tap dance. When the music stopped, she was surprised to hear clapping! She turned around and found the Newborn Ponies standing in the nursery, applauding her dance! (*from backcard)
DANGLES: Dangles lay in her crib, gazing at the colorful mobile hanging above her head. She reached up to make the mobile spin but could not reach it. “Wiggle your nose at it,” whispered Sugar Apple, peeking in the nursery. When Dangles wiggled her nose, the mobile began to twirl around! “Isn’t it surprising what a little wiggle will do?” laughed Sugar Apple, as Dangles enjoyed the spinning mobile. (*from backcard)
BABY SHAGGY: Dozing off to sleep one night, Shaggy secretly wished she had a friend toenjoy bedtime stories with her. Later that night, Mint Dreams snuck into her room, swished her tail and … POOF! … a cute teddy bear appeared in Shaggy’s crib. When she woke the next morning, Shaggy was surprised at what she found! “Now I have a cuddly new friend!” she shouted, as Mint Dreams flew out the window, smiling. (*from backcard)

BABY WIGGLES: Wiggles and Mr. Caterpillar watched the Windy Wing Ponies fly through the air with their colorful butterfly wings. “Soon, I’ll have wings like those,” Mr. Caterpillar said, adding another strand of silk to his cocoon. “I’ll go to sleep in my cocoon as a caterpillar and wake up as a butterfly!” he explained. Delighted, Wiggles promised to visit the cocoon every day to see her friend’s new butterfly wings! (*from backcard)

BABY SQUIRMY: Squirmy was collecting seashells on the beach when she found a most unusual shell with blue circles. As she admired it, a shy little snail popped out! “This is my home,” said the snail, hurrying back into the shell. Squirmy liked the cute snail so much that she plucked a ray of sunshine and gave it to the snail as a present. Then she introduced the other Newborn Ponies to the snail, who wasn’t so shy anymore!

Baby Squirmy also had EURO releases.
Loving Family Ponies were made up of a mother pony, father pony (in a Big Brother mold), and two baby ponies, but only one baby pony was made available in the US instead of just selling the set with both. So, to get the whole family you would have had to get ahold of a baby pony from across the pond. Loving Family Ponies had a “twice-as-fancy” printing on their bodies and what was really neat about Loving Family ponies was that the baby’s symbols were a combination of both parents’.

COOL BREEZE: Cool Breeze was sitting under a shady palm tree when a sad baby whale came ashore. “I’m lost,” the whale frowned, “Will you help me find my friends?” In a flash, Cool Breeze soared above the ocean and searched until she spotted the whale’s fish friends playing tag in the sparkling sea below.

BABY FLEECY/ BABY WOOLLY: As Baby Fleecy and Baby Woolly played with their toys, they knocked over a basket of Whirly’s yarn. The balls rolled away, getting tangled as they unwound. Baby Fleecy quickly wiggled her nose, and the yarn began to roll into balls all by itself!
