My Marissa: Home Again in Oak Branch Woods Jaya and Mina: New Ground in Oak Branch Woods Kimberly's Attic

Year 7 gave us variations on ponies from the year before. There were new ponies with heads that turned, new scented ponies, and entire pony families. This was also the first year with two sets of boy and girl baby ponies, but no Baby Sea Ponies. This was also the year when ponies danced and had hair that changed color right before our eyes. Some Ponies came with make up; eye shadow, lipstick, and nail polish, that together made a set of nine different cosmetics. This was also the year when My Little Pony collectors were called My Little Pony Girls.


Merry Go Round Ponies logo with Flower Bouquet graphic

Merry Go Round Ponies seemed like an obvious idea for a long time...unique My Little Pony characters with the classic beauty of a carousel. These special ponies don't have symbols; instead each pony wears a molded decorative cape on her backs and a matching piece on the back of her head. These designs came in three different styles, with different colors, with each design seen on two ponies. The designs are raised giving them a three dimensional effect. All of the Merry Go Round Ponies are Earth Ponies with standard-length manes and tails, and came with a flower brush and hair ribbon.

Merry Go Round Ponies

Sunnybunch is pinkish-purple with (straight) bright green hair, and blue eyes. Her cape is white with pinkish-purple dots, blue trim, and blue roses and other purple (same as body color)/blue/white flowers (w/light green leaves) around the edges. No dots on matching triangle-shaped headpiece.
Brilliant Blossoms is cornflower blue with (straight) yellow hair, and purple eyes. Her cape is pinkish-purple in the middle with white & yellow flowers and white dots, and white on the back and sides with pinkish-purple hearts. The cape is outlined in yellow trim, pinkish-purple ruffles, and yellow tassels. The piece on her head is a variation on this design with similar trim, ruffle, and tassels, with a white center.
Sparkler is purple with curly aqua hair, and pink eyes. Her cape is pink and white with aqua dots, and white-tasseled aqua & pink ovals with white diamonds inside. No dots on matching triangle-shaped headpiece, which has one diamond/oval on each side.

Her cape is periwinkle in the middle with white & pink flowers and white dots, and white on the back and sides with periwinkle hearts. The cape is outlined in pink trim, periwinkle ruffles, and pink tassels. The piece on her head is a variation on this design with similar trim, ruffle, and tassels, with a white center.

Candy Cane Ponies logo with Caramel Crunch graphic

Candy Cane Ponies are scented ponies who smell like desserts and treats like their names and symbols. But their most unique feature was their perfect curls (longer manes and standard-length tails) swirled like candy cane stripes which are white plus one other color. They have three big curls in their manes and four in their tails. Each Candy Cane Pony came with a lollipop, ice cream sundae, or ice cream cone barrette, plus a candy comb, and hair ribbon.

Sunshine Ponies logo with Seaflower graphic

Sand Digger (pink hair) In Year 6, we had Watercolor Baby Sea Ponies who could change their body and hair color in warm water. In Year 7, the Sunshine Ponies had streaks in their hair that change color in the warm sunlight. In both their (standard-length) manes and tales, the Sunshine Ponies had a special streak of either white or pink hair that could change to magenta (see photo of Sand Digger [white to magenta]; ponies with pink streaks tend to not work as well over time) in the sun and change back under cloudy skies or inside. Their symbols all represented things from the sea or for the beach and cover the entire sides of their bodies. Each Sunshine Pony came with a brush or hairpick.

Sparkle Ponies

SEE: Sparkle Ponies (Special Offers page 2, Glitter Island)


Note that while there are several similarities between the original mail order Sparkle Ponies and the year 7 version, the main difference is that the store-bought version do not have the tiny symbol under their eye. Other differences include body and/or hair color as indicated in Star Hopper and Napper. All of the other ponies' colors are unchanged.

Star Hopper has a bluer body color (in contrast to the original green) and straight yellow hair (as opposed to white), still with gold tinsel. Her eyes are the same pinkish-purple color.
Napper has the same yellow body color but with purple hair, instead of the original green (still with gold tinsel). Her eyes are the same lavender color.
