It's sticky; it's stinky; it's crusty; it's gloppy; it's that stuff on your pony!
Most common stains or crusts:
Pen- The only thing that even begins to get it out is warm water and bleach. If you
are young, get your mom to mix some together and scrub. But if you scrub too hard, bye bye
pony! Always try an eraser on the pen marks first. Someone might have used erasable pen!
Nail Polish and Paint- Nail polish remover and a good scrub brush should take that
stuff off. If not, try some paint solvent. Ask your parents for some. If push comes to shove, you
can (very gently) sand it off with sand paper. Don.t scrub hard.
Marker- Again, a very tough stain. I say, don't let you little brothers and sisters
near markers. But try water and bleach.
Greasy Dirt- You really can't get this out, unfortunately. I hate greasy dirt because
the only stuff that will take it partially off is pure bleach, and that's dangerous to use. Don't
bother with grease dirt. You have to soak the pony for days and by then it's ruined
Regular Dirt- A bar of soap, and a scrub brush. Just go at it and the dirt should
come right off! Be careful about scrubbing near the symbol, you don't want to scratch it
Make Up- For lipstick, try to get it off right away because it can become the
dreaded greasy dirt. For eye shadow, blush powder, etc.; just use water. Follow greasy dirt
directions above for lipstick if its really old and on there. If it's fresh, try a kleenex dipped in
For all you Ponies out there who love to dress up, there's a nice surprise for you
this weekend! Porcina, the famous fashion designer, has come up with a few new lines of clothing
for all the non-nudist Ponies in Ponyland.
First up is Moondancer, ready to hit the slopes in her stylish pink skisuit. With
matching goggles, ski cap, and skis, she's set to go!
Next in line is Mimic looking cozy in her white printed jammies and matching
nightcap. She's ready for a midnight snack of milk and cookies with her yellow blanket and
And then comes Bubbles. She can get into the groove while wearing her blue and
yellow dress with green trim. With matching blue socks and yellow shoes, she's ready to clip her
hair back and dance to the tunes coming from her green radio!
Sugarberry rolls along on her skateboard while wearing a shiny orange dress. This
sidewalk surfer listens to music on her headphones while paying attention to safety by wearing
knee pads, as all young Ponies should do.
Twinkler prances along, her sparkles shining in excitement as she prepares for her
vacation. With a yellow floral print dress and magenta shoes, she's ready to don her straw hat,
grab her yellow suitcase, and go on a pony holiday.
Wind Whistler shows her artistic side while still being pretty as a picture in her art
smock, stylishly splattered with paint from her pallet and paintbrush, comfy pants, and pink
With these stunning designs and more to come, Porcina shows her mastery of the
needle and thread!
You will need a cheap paintbrush, the children's kind with the black plastic bristles.
You will use the bristles of the brush as new eyelashes. You will also need Super Glue and a pair
of tweezers, as well as steady hands and patience. :)
Cut some bristles off as close to the bottom of the brush as possible. Pick up one
bristle with the tweezers, holding it by the end, and dip one end a little into the super glue. Then,
put it into the eye! Keep on doing this until the eyelashes are all in; then slowly and carefully trim
the ends to the right length! It really helps to have a BBE baby in good shape to use as a model.

If they still have their eyelashes, they are salvageable.
What you need:
Wet eyes gently with alcohol, as it will loosen the rust. Take toothpick and scrape at the
rust. This is time confusing, but worth it. You can clean most of the rust with the tooth pick and
frequently wetting with alcohol. Then take the cotton swab, and dip them in peroxide. Peroxide
kills rust components and can help get the rest of the stain off. Just scrub with the swab. It may
not look like it can scrape rust off, but cotton is very coarse and it's like a mild sand paper. The
eyes won't be perfect, but they will look a heck of a lot better.
Hello, everyone! I'm here at the Ponyland Cinema, and boy, is this place crazy
tonight! The line to get tickets is so long, it circles the whole block! The new hit movie, "A Day
in Ponyland," features Sundance, Megan, and Molly. Since it's only in theaters, everyone is dying
to see it!
Minate and Pony give the movie 2 hooves up. The dolls are selling out in only
hours! The line's moving. I'll give a revue of the movie next time. Bye for now!
In kindergarten, my teacher let me declare a "My Little Pony Day." Everyone in
class brought a pony to school that day. One boy didn't have any ponies, but I had brought
extras; so I let him have Barnacle to play with for the day. (But I wouldn't share any of the other
ponies I'd brought along!)
Mom and I had made My Little Pony sugar cookies (we'd once found one My Little
Pony cookie cutter at a rummage sale) to serve for snacktime. We duplicated pages from My
Little Pony coloring books so everyone had a picture to color.
When some older girls walked by our party, they made comments like, "Oh, look at
the cute little ponies!" "Isn't that sweet!" "Look, everyone has a pony!" and "I've got some of
them at home!"
One of my big brothers had painted Baby Noddins on poster board with a
detachable tail; we all took a turn at "Pin the Tail on the Pony."
I, of course, had worn my My Little Pony shirt for the special day and thought I
was really "cool" because I was in charge of everything. It was a happy day for me and for all the
other kids, too, thanks to My Little Ponies!

"Gotch ya," called Baby Sundance as she tagged Baby Lofty. Baby Lofty squealed,
and turned to chase down Baby Half Note.
"No fair," pouted Baby Half Note. "You wing ponies move fast!" Baby Lofty just
giggled as she sped away.
The baby ponies were playing tag in the meadow; it was a warm, sunny day with
fluffy white clouds hanging in the blue sky. The ponies ran through the soft green grass,
occasionally stopping to smell the fragrant and colorful flowers of Dream Valley. They got
especially excited when a delicate butterfly would come to sip nectar from a beautiful blossom;
the friendly butterflies were always willing to spend a little time frolicking with the frisky
When the babies tired of their game of tag, Baby Gusty suggested they play
hide-and-seek. So off they went, each to her own "secret" spot. Baby Heartthrob was the first to
do the seeking. She found Baby Lofty in a tree, Baby Sundance behind a bush, Baby Gusty in a
patch of daisies, and Baby Half Note behind a rock.
After a few more times of hiding and seeking, Baby Sundance frowned and asked,
"Why so dark?" The baby ponies looked around, and realized it was definitely too dark for this
early in the day.
"Mommy not even called us to lunch yet!" Baby Half Note whimpered.
Baby Sundance looked up at the sky, and shivered. The puffy white clouds had
become mean-looking black clouds, thick and heavy with rain. In the distance, lightning streaked
through the darkness. "A storm coming," cried Baby Sundance. "Must get home!"
Baby Heartthrob started to cry as thunder rumbled across the valley. Baby Half
Note and Baby Lofty were close to tears. Baby Gusty called, "Mommy! Mommy!" as loudly as
In the meantime, Baby Sundance tried to remember what her mother had taught her
about storms like this. As she surveyed the menacing clouds overhead, she gasped in alarm. One
of the clouds was beginning to circle around and around, going faster and faster, and dropping
lower and lower toward the ground. A tornado!
"Follow me!" Baby Sundance screamed. She knew they must find a low spot to
hide in before this awful thing reached them. She remembered a rocky ravine nearby that cut into
the meadow. The frightened baby ponies moved quickly toward the ravine as raindrops began to
Baby Sundance became aware of a terrible roar in the sky behind them, and sensed
that the noise was part of the swirling tornado cloud she'd seen. She whispered a prayer that she
and her friends would reach the sheltered spot in time.
Just them, the rocks of the ravine were in front of her; Baby Sundance and the
others dropped into the ravine and huddled together in the shelter of some large rocks.
Now the wind was blowing fiercely around them, pelting them with raindrops.
They clustered tightly together, their faces touching, whimpering and shivering. And so they
stayed as the storm raged around them.
Then as suddenly as it began, the storm was over. Baby Sundance lifted her head
and whispered, "You hear someone?"
Baby Gusty jumped up and called out, "Mommy! Mommy!" Baby Lofty, Baby
Heartthrob and Baby Half Note joined in the happy cries. They slipped and tripped up the slope
to the grassy meadow, and met the worried mothers amidst a shower of hugging, kissing, crying,
Lofty spoke through her happy tears. "The storm came up so quickly, we couldn't
get to you! We were so afraid for your safety!"
Baby Heartthrob, feeling brave now with the danger past, nipped at Baby
Sundance's mane. "Baby Sundance saved us from to-na-do!"
Sundance looked at her baby and hugged her close. "I prayed you'd remember
what I taught you," she smiled.
Baby Sundance snuggled against her and smiled back. "Me, too!"
I'm taking a survey to find out how many people think a First Tooth Baby Sundance
was made and how many don't. E-mail me what you think, and why to
It was a bright and beautiful morning in Ponyland (like all of the other mornings)
and Baby Moondancer woke to the smell of her favorite breakfast dish-- honey oatmeal! She ran
through the nursery like a bolt of lightning, and straight to the Dream Castle kitchen.
"Wash your hooves and go sit at the table with all the other ponies, ‘cause breakfast
will be done in a minute," said Cherry Treats, but Baby Moondancer was already seated, hooves
washed and ready to eat. Some of the other baby ponies started snickering.
I wonder what is so funny? thought Baby Moondancer to herself, but she soon
forgot, because breakfast was on the table, and it was time to eat.
* * *
After breakfast, Moondancer came up to Baby Moondancer and said, "Hi, baby! I
planned a special car trip for just us today!"
"Where are we going?" asked Baby Moondancer.
"It's a surprise!" replied Moondancer.
* * *
Later that day, she was playing ball with Baby Glory, Baby Splashes, and Baby
"You're going to the dentist!" Baby Tiddley Winks burst out with a cruel laugh at
"Where?" asked Baby Moondancer.
"The Dentist!" they all yelled with laughter.
"Who's the dentist?" Baby Moondancer asked with a worried tone.
"The Dentist is someone who looks inside your mouth, finds problems, and drills
into your teeth!" Baby Splashes blurted out.
"It's true!" Baby Glory insisted. "A friend of mine went there, and when she came
back, all of her teeth had holes in ‘em!"
"No, no, my mommy wouldn't take me to such a mean man!" Baby Moondancer
cried, and she ran off to her room.
* * *
"Baby Moondancer, Baby Moondancer?" Moondancer called out. "It's time to go
on our special car trip!"
"I DON'T WANNA GO TO THE DENTIST!" screeched Baby Moondancer. "I
don't wanna get my teeth ripped up!"
"Why, where did you get that idea?" asked Moondancer.
"The other baby ponies told me so!" sobbed Baby Moondancer.
"They're just saying that stuff because they're frightened themselves! The dentist is
nice! Why, I even go there, and my pearly whites are as beautiful as any tooth could be!"
Moondancer told her.
"Really, Mommy?" Baby Moondancer asked.
"Of course! Would your mother lie?" Moondancer said.
"No," answered Baby Moondancer. So they got in the car, and left for the dentist.
* * *
RING A LING the bell on the door went as Baby Moondancer walked in.
"Hi, folks!" said a very nice old lady at the desk. "So you must be Baby
Moondancer! My name is Dr. Floss n' Gloss, and I will be your dentist! Go sit in that chair over
"Okay," Baby Moondancer said, barely able to push out the two syllables.
"What we're going to do today is a simple procedure," the dentist reassured her.
"We'll look for cavities in the teeth; then we'll clean them. Not too bad! You don't have a single
cavity! Now, to clean the teeth. First we'll put some foam on this funny looking contraption, and
put it in your mouth... then we clean it up and brush our teeth, okay?"
"Okay," Baby Moondancer answered, feeling a bit more secure.
minutes later, the dentist came out with Baby Moondancer and said to her,
while pulling a basket off of a shelf, "Since you were such a good baby pony, go ahead and pick
out what toy you'd like out of this basket!"
Baby Moondancer picked out a lovely purple ring.
"There you go now," said Dr. Floss n' Gloss. "Now run along! I hope to see you
"Buh bye, misses dentist lady!" Baby Moondancer said with delight. "Be back
And with that, Baby Moondancer and Moondancer got in the car and headed home.

When they got there, Baby Moondancer could instantly smell her favorite dinner,
oats and fruit! At dinner, all the baby ponies gathered around Baby Moondancer, asking
questions like, "Was it scary?", "Did the dentist look weird?", or "Did she drill in your
During that time, Baby Moondancer was probably the proudest and happiest pony
in Ponyland, and that's the tooth!

Hi, fellow baby ponies! Did you hear about the new baby swim team at the Dream
Valley Swim Center? That's right! Starting August first, the Dream Valley Dolphins will meet
twice weekly to practice for the first meet, which will be held sometime in late August. Don't
worry if you're not such a great swimmer-- if you sign up for the Dolphins, you'll also get free
swimming lessons (at least until they fill up all the spots). And all the babies can participate,
because there will be separate groups for newborns, regular babies, and teenagers (although the
newborns do not get to compete in events)! So be sure and sign up as soon as possible by calling
555-SWIM if you want to be there for the team-- I know I will!
THE RULES- You canNOT go to Dream Valley and look them up. You MUST number
the list you have made; I don't want to sit at my computer counting the names :-) I am using the
honor system ‘cause there's no way I can prove you cheated, but I might get suspicious. And
also, wouldn't you want to win fairly? I'd hope so! :-)
So now that the rules are straight let the contest begin!!!!

So-soft ponies are scary to some collectors because they are afraid that cleaning
them will ruin their lovely fur. But don't worry; here are the steps to making your so-softs
beautiful once again-- without ruining their fur!
Here is what you will need: liquid soap, baking soda, and Comet.
Smear liquid soap all over the pony, but do not work it into a lather. Cover the
soap with Comet, and cover the Comet with baking soda. Work into a lather, and rinse. Repeat
these procedures as necessary to completely rid the ponies coat of dirt.
Never use a toothbrush or extremely harsh cleansers, as they may ruin the flocking
on your so-soft pony.
1. Combine sugar, cocoa, and milk in a large pan. Put over medium heat and stir.
2. Bring to a boil.
3. Test to see if fudge is ready by taking a drop of fudge and dropping it into cold water.
When the small chocolate ball feels hard, the fudge is ready for the next step.
4. Remove fudge from heat and add vanilla and butter. If you like creamy fudge, add more
butter than the recipe calls for. Stir until butter is blended into the chocolate. The mixture will
begin to harden.
5. Pour mixture onto a buttered platter and cut into pieces.
