Oh, Petite Ponies!
My littlest ponies!
You’re this little, but I love you this big!
Your world is this little, but I love it this big!
Petite Ponies were plastic ponies of an inch high, some of which had brushable hair. Their bases had a horseshoe pattern that allowed you to activate their playset features. You can find a complete record of every Petite Pony and Petite Pony playset ever released in The My Little Pony G1 Collector’s Inventory.
I couldn’t find the original commercial with an English dub but the visuals are the same in this one:
I loved Petite Ponies. The Prancing Pretty Carousel was my favorite because it was more like a whole theme park. I especially liked the Petites as a kid because they were smaller and easier to get out without having to drag out all the full sized pony playsets. That said, I could never get into Dream Beauties.
Did you have any Petite Ponies in your collection?
I think I had a glow in the dark set and I remember losing my favorite one in the grocery store 🙁
I used to keep all my petite ponies in a tiny little wooden crate that we once got strawberries in. All their tails would stick out between the slats.
