Buying guide for best My Little Pony toys

Last Updated December 2019

My Little Pony toys have been around since the early 1980s and are still popular today. Some people who enjoyed playing with My Little Ponies when they were young are now buying them for their own children.

If you're looking to buy a My Little Pony toy for a child in your life, you can find hundreds of options on the market, and it can be hard to narrow it down. This guide will tell you all about the different My Little Pony toys available and what you should consider when trying to find the best one, such as the age group of the person you're buying for and the different characters and shows.

So, whether you’re looking for a figurine, a playset, a plushie, or something else, you’re sure to find an abundance of great My Little Pony toys. Check out our top five favorites, or read on to learn more about this magical world of play.

Whatever your child's favorite My Little Pony character, you're sure to find a toy that features it.

Key considerations

Toy type

Figurines: These are plastic figures to collect or for imaginary play. They feature characters from the cartoons My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic and My Little Pony: Equestria Girls, plus some from My Little Pony: The Movie

Classic: The classic collection features My Little Pony figurines and playsets identical to those from the original lines released in the '80s and '90s. If you played with My Little Pony toys as a child, these are the ponies you'll remember. They're more popular with adults than children because of their nostalgic quality.

Playsets: You can find a range of My Little Pony playsets, most designed to be used with mini or mid-sized figurines rather than larger ones. Playsets include castles, cottages, and airships. Usually, some figurines and accessories are included.

Plushies: Soft, huggable plush My Little Pony toys are perfect for kids who love stuffed toys. The majority are standard plushies, but you can find some interactive talking plushies, too.

Age group

The majority of My Little Pony toys are suitable for ages three and up. They often have small accessories that could pose a choking hazard for younger children. Some toys have even higher minimum age limits, so check the recommended age group before buying.

Characters

My Little Pony toys are generally modeled after characters from the cartoons. If you know the favorite characters of the person you're buying for, it’s easier to pick the right toy. My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic mostly centers around the "mane six": Rainbow Dash, Twilight Sparkle, Rarity, Fluttershy, Pinkie Pie, and Applejack.

Although they don't quite fall under the "toy" umbrella, you can also buy My Little Pony board games, activity sets, and costumes.

Features

Poseable

Some My Little Pony figurines are poseable with moving legs. Others, however, are completely static. Each option has its pros and cons, but kids may have a preference as to which they like best.

Size

Check the size of any My Little Pony toys before buying to make sure they aren't smaller or larger than expected. Figurines usually come in three sizes: mini figurines that are one to two inches tall, mid-sized figurines that are around three inches tall, and full-sized figurines that are six inches tall.

My Little Pony toy prices

The price of My Little Pony toys depends on what kind of toy you buy and whether it's a single toy or a full set. A single My Little Pony figurine can cost under $5, whereas a set of multiple ponies or a My Little Pony playset may cost over $60.

The majority of My Little Pony figurines have brushable manes and tails, but some have hard plastic manes and tails, which could be disappointing for kids who like to style their ponies' hair.

FAQ

Q. What are Equestria Girls?
A.
Equestria Girls are characters from the cartoon My Little Pony: Equestria Girls. They're essentially anthropomorphic ponies that are partway between a My Little Pony and a human girl — which is not quite as creepy as it sounds. If the child you're buying for prefers Equestria Girls to standard My Little Ponies, rest assured that you can buy a wide range of Equestria Girls toys, too.

Q. Can you buy accessories to use with My Little Pony figurines?
A.
Some My Little Pony figurines have a range of accessories included, but it's hard to find additional accessories sold separately. As such, make sure you choose a pony or playset that contains all the accessories you require.

Q. Are My Little Pony toys for girls?
A.
Although My Little Pony toys are more popular with young girls than young boys, they're certainly not exclusively for girls. All children can play with My Little Pony toys, so you can certainly buy them for your son, grandson, nephew, or little brother if he wants them.
