&; my little pony

My Little Pony is a product line of colorful toy ponies marketed to children, and is produced by Hasbro. The toys were first introduced in 1982, following the related "My Pretty Pony" toy which was introduced in 1981. They became enormously popular throughout that decade. The original toy line inspired several animated specials, an animated feature length movie, and two animated television series. Redesigned toys have been introduced to the market three times since then, one near the end of 1997, one in mid-2003 and another one in 2010. Collectors refer to each line as a "generation". There are currently Generation 1 (G1), Generation 2 (G2), Generation 3 (G3; including G3.5) and Generation 4 (G4) which is currently found in stores.
