My Little Pony
Making a snow pony
Truly looks so cute. I wish ponies still had bows on their tails in this era. I don’t know why none of them do anymore
It took me a while to “get” this, but the original bow-on-tail thing was a reference to the ponytail hairstyle on little girls, which is often tied back with a ribbon. So, ponytails on literal pony tails. :) They really hit you in the face with this in one of the early Hasbro toy catalogs. I’ll try to dig up the picture I’m talking about when I get home from work.
Seattle pony Crystal continues crusade against unsustainable real estate market
This pony is the official mascot of the blog Seattle Bubble, which amuses me to no end. Apparently Seattle Bubble’s association with pink ponies was introduced in a sarcastic comment in 2007:
March 28, 2007Remember, if there is a downturn in the nation’s economy, it will not affect Seattle. This is because Seattle is special, a magical place where all homeowners ride pretty pink ponies on streets made of crystal, and gumdrops fall from the sky.
One of my favorite baby ponies, Baby Moondancer.
Also, regarding what would happen if Celestia and Majesty met, clearly they’d be RBFF (Royal Best Friends Forever).

Mine is in better condition than Lauren Faust’s. Get on my level.
A moment of silence for the memory of Lauren Faust, before she lowered herself to the level of bashing G1 while praising G4, AKA Brony Hell.
Celestia isn’t even worthy of being mentioned in the same sentence as Majesty! Majesty would wreck Tia’s shit and fast!
Okay, let me say this in Lauren Faust’s defense.
I love Majesty, she is a fantastic and awesome character.
But the toy version of her is not that great considering it came with one of the most expensive playsets. Every single playset-version of Majesty I’ve ever seen has had uneven, crappy hair that is usually very thin and doesn’t “fall” right. They have abnormally short tails for a G1. As if this wasn’t enough, the first hair plugs of their manes are set so far back that they look like they’re in the process of balding. They also frequently have mismatched eye colors.
It’s a shame, because G1 usually had very good quality control, and I don’t really know what happened with Majesty. (But whatever it was, the same thing happened with the pegasus Sprinkles, who was also a playset pony.)
You’ll notice I said “playset-version of Majesty” … that’s because there was a non-playset version sold later, through a mail order offer, that did not have these issues. But I can tell that’s not the one Lauren Faust had since her version is wearing golden horseshoes, which came with the castle plus I can clearly see the unevenness of the mane.
Can we just not bash someone for talking about their childhood toys, regardless of what they’re saying or what bronies say? She put Majesty in her little golden horseshoes, she brushed her mane nicely (believe me, Majesty’s mane does not lie that nicely without brushing), and she braided her tail. Hell, she still HAS her childhood Majesty! I sold all but three of my childhood ponies in a garage sale! So please, let’s show some respect.
