About the Book: This is the first comprehensive collector's identification and value guide to My Little Pony(r). These popular toys were made by Hasbro(r) from 1981 to 1991 and are attracting the interest of collectors around the world. The 300+ color photographs clearly identify over 600 My Little Ponies, some of which are extremely rare. In addition to the ponies, hundreds of related items sold under the MLP logo are shown. Written by a pony lover for pony lovers, this fun and easy-to-use guide begins by teaching the reader how to tell My Little Ponies from similar-looking toys. An introductory list of terms helps the reader to determine a particular pony's type. There are chapters on Adult Ponies (Earthlings, Unicorns, and Sea Ponies), Baby Ponies, Adult and Baby Sets, Petite Ponies, Animal Families, Pony Places and Accessories, Pony Clothes, and Pony Items. A "Came With" section features many mint-in-package ponies. A very helpful index of all the ponies featured in the book and a handy price guide with beautifully detailed photography makes this book a must for every My Little Pony lover.
Our Take: We love toy collector guides here at the Legion. This book, brought to us by Schiffer, is the second edition of the World of My Little Pony, revised and expanded. We don't collect MLP ourselves, but I am very well aquainted with the toyline, having grown up in the 1980s and 1990s....or so I thought. I had NO idea the level of variance in ponies. A few things that really took me by surprise are the Dream Ponies and Sparkle Ponies. There were so many items I didn't know about. This book would be ideal for any fan or collector of MLP as a great field reference guide. Its full of great color pics and a TON of info.
