Our Adorable Past

Behold: Lauren Faust’s Childhood My Little Pony Collection


It’s one thing when an adult faces the fact that it’s time to put those childhood toys in indefinite storage. It’s quite another when the adult crafted an immensely popular television reboot of those toys. Lauren Faust, creator of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, tweeted her preparation of the toys for storage, including pictures of the classic MLP characters who inspired the modern ones.

    I’d love to have a dinner party with awesome power couples Faust/McKracken and PTA/Rudolf.

    Man, those ponies are in waaaay better condition than mine were by the end of my childhoood… and mine still earned my mom a cool $60 at garage sale. ;)

    I totally guessed the inspirations for Rarity, Fluttershy, Twilight, and of course Applejack (who was one of my first ponies!), but the major colour differences fooled me in terms of Rainbow Dash and Pinkie Pie.

    Whenever I go to a con and see all the teens and twentysomethings in their pony gear I feel like I need a Pony Hipster shirt… fan since 1983!

    There’s usually a fan or two at these cons wearing a throwback tee. One guy at Bronycon 2012 was dressed as The Smooze!
