My Little Pony toys are again making an impact on the toy market for young girls. Originally this long running toy line started with the simple idea of a stylized horse figurine that would appeal to young girls. The first edition – a 10 inch hard plastic model named My Pretty Pony – did not achieve much success and so the smaller, brightly colored, heavily maned and personable figures were released. With full-length animated motion pictures and animated television series to create interest for the toys, Hasbro reinvented the cute four-legged figures once again in 2010.

My Little Pony Toy Buyer’s Guide

My Little Pony Toys Buyers Guide and Breakdown

my-little-Pony-toys-image-2

Target Consumer

Hasbro sees young girls and their parents as the main consumers of the My Little Pony brand. However, this latest release of the figures has attracted the attention of avid toy collectors. Many of those collectors are adults. Young children remain the focus of Hasbro’s design and development of the My Little Pony franchise.

Little girls may also enjoy these top-rated LOL Dolls or these Carico Critters toys.

Age Range

The toy line appears to be divided into three different age ranges. Soft plush toys that are licensed through Ty, Inc., are considered suitable for all ages. My Little Pony sets and individual models are suitable for ages 3 and up. Finally, the new line of Equestria Girls has a recommended age to it of 5+ years. With the exception of the stuff toys, all packages appear to have choking hazard warnings on them. Girls of this age range also tend to like Shopkins toys. As girls get older you may find they are not interested in My little pony toys anymore. Try these gift ideas for 12-year-old girls.

Cleaning and Care

These seemingly simple enough figures can require a bit of gentle cleaning from time to time. The brand’s trademark ‘cutie marks’ need to be preserved for both interest and collectible value. A wipe down with a damp cloth and mild soap can generally do the trick.

The long manes and tails can be combed out but rinsing and combing with hair conditioner can help keep them from becoming fuzzy and unmanageable. Tutorials on how to clean well worm figures can be found online.

Website/ Activities/ Apps

Hasbro supports a website for all things related to My Little Pony. The site (https://mylittlepony.hasbro.com/en-us) has a two option homepage which allows kids to freely access games and videos and adults to shop and explore the world of My Little Pony.

Buyers Guide Questions

Who Makes My Little Pony Toys?

My Little Pony toys are made predominantly by Hasbro, the company that initially developed the concept. Some stuffed toy versions of the four-legged animals are licensed and made through Ty, Inc., one of the largest manufacturers of stuff toys in the world. In addition, Both Hasbro and Ty, Inc. are based in the United States.

How to Clean My Little Pony Toys?

For everyday cleaning, most My Little Pony figures can be cleaned with a damp cloth and a small amount of mild soap. In the event that the figure requires more than a light washes down, there are several YouTube tutorials for different methods of cleaning those old and forgotten treasures. In general, the recommendation is not to use bleach because of the potential of damaging the bright colors.

For cleaning the mane and tail, one recommendation is to put standard hair conditioner on the mane and tail, comb with a fine-toothed comb and then rinse when all the tangles are removed. Several tutorials are also available for the care of these features.

Expert Tip

Collectors sometimes refer to the four different releases of My Little Pony products as ‘generations’. With slight differences in the appearance of each generation, serious collectors can easily identify a timeline of figures. A timeline of MLP history is on the website and gives good information about the different product lines.

Did you know?

The original My Little Pony was developed in 1983 with 6 different pony personalities. Since that time, the line has been discontinued periodically and reinvented for a modern market. This last release in 2010 is the fourth time the product has been updated.
