"Little girls will journey to a land where dreams come true just by gazing into a Twinkle-Eyed pony’s eyes! Like precious jewels that sparkle and shine, Twinkle-Eyed ponies have eyes that beam with all the colors of the rainbow. They have beautiful hair, streaked with magical colors, in either a sleek, straight style or bouncing with fluffy curls. Each Twinkle-Eyed Pony is packaged on a blister card and comes with a comb, ribbon, and grape scented body sticker. A delightful Pony Story appears on the back of each package."

A good Halloween-ish story.
Because, you know.
