In 1988 Hasbro released the Loving Family sets including Mummy, Daddy and Baby Brother or Sister with themed cutie marks. All are printed with Twice-as-Fancy style markings, Mummy and Daddy’s combining to make Baby’s. Baby pony also has striped hair colouring combining both parents’. U.S. sets included one baby but Euro exclusives had both Brother and Sister. All three U.S. sets released are for sale on my eBay page under Seller ID: Aeru2 . Most of the time collectors sell the individual ponies- take this opportunity to pick up a whole family 🙂 All ponies are in played-with condition, see listings for all photos. Lots more ponies and 80s greatness so check it out!

nhOne of the rarer G1 ponies and certainly amongst the Twice as Fancies is Nightglider. She is one of the year 6 set of TAFs.
Princess Tiffany is one of the few white ponies with white hair, the other two notable ponies being the TAF Yum Yum and the Bride pony special edition as well as being one of a handful of ponies with a “real” name. Princess Tiffany originally came with a wand, princess crown, hair pick, ribbon and Friendly the bushwoolie.
Main Sail is one of the Sunshine Ponies; twice-as-fancy ponies whose hair turns colour in the sun. Mainsail’s hair stripe turns from white to purple in the sun and she has the full-body patterning like the other TAFs.
This beautiful baby pony from year 10 of G1 was a mail-order exclusive bought with Kellogg’s Rice Krispy cereal proofs rather than the Hasbro horseshoe points used to order other mail-order ponies. She is actually not named by Hasbro but is commonly just referred to as Baby Stockings in referene to her cutie mark.
The very first baby pony in the long line of My Little Pony toys was Ember, a mail order only offering from Hasbro. There would be 4 Embers released in total; 3 mail orders like Pink Ember here and 1 sold in store baby with a story cassette. Like her 2 mail order sisters, Pink Ember has no cutie mark.
It’s a bit difficult these days to find a nice Minty without paying a mint if you don’t score one at a garage sale but she’s a lovely little horse issued as one of the original 6 earth ponies and again as part of the 25th anniversary pack.
