Generation 1

Takara

"マイリトルポニー" ⇒ mai ritoru ponii ⇒ My Little Pony

In the 1980s Hasbro had a give and take relationship with the Japanese toy company Takara (now called Takara Tomy). Takara licensed Transformers to Hasbro. Hasbro licensed Takara "My Little Pony". In 1985 the Japan exclusive the toy line "Mai Ritoru Ponii - Osharena Ponii" or "My Little Pony - Stylish Pony" debuted. The toys were marketed as poseable dolls that you could dress up and style their hair. There are 4 main characters, and at least 11 different outfits that could be purchased separately.


The information on this page about the Takara line is as described by the packaging and catalog pages. Since only some of the toys are known by collectors to definitely exist, it is very likely that much of it never made it past the prototype stage. Toys confirmed to exist are laid out in a chart below. The lack of a network of thrift stores such as those that exist in the US is one of many possible reasons for why so few of the toys have been found by modern collectors.

Also, of the few items found, there has been variance between two pieces of pony wear apparently meant to be the same item. There is no telling what kind of color/pattern/accessory variance is possible with these toys.

Before you get too excited, only about 1/4 of the toys from the catalog have been confirmed to have actually been produced.

And only a handful total have been found. So, you cannot expect to be able to collect these at all.
