The Mane 6 have been given a makeover in Hasbro’s latest expansion for My Little Pony.

My Little Pony: Pony Life is a brand-new animated series produced by Hasbro’s Allspark Animation, launching in 2020.


Pinkie Pie and other familiar MLP characters will face new adventures with an overhauled visual style inspired by ‘chibi’ illustration – cute characters with oversized heads and expressive eyes.


“Funnier, sweeter and warmer than ever”, Samantha Lomow, president, Hasbro Entertainment Brands, says the series is “inspired by our fans who are looking for more ways to experience their favourite characters from the My Little Pony world.



My Little Pony: Pony Life looks at the funny side of friendship and centres Sugarcube Corner, a home away from home for the ponies. Episodes feature hilarious ‘slice of life’ storylines that modern kids can relate to, with magical twists including a secret source of potions the Pinkie keeps stowed behind the bakery counter until they’re needed.


Ahead of the series’ launch, Hasbro yesterday rolled out a new toy range at select retailers that Samantha says have “all new ways to play so our fans can experience the magic through engaging new products”.

Among the new toys are the Magical Mane Rarity Figure, a 6.5-inch figures with hair-styling accessories, and smaller three-inch figures in the Potion Ponies line, packaged in tiny bottles alongside four surprise accessories. Special features of the range include magical growing hair, colour reveal hair and additional surprises.


Amazon debuted the new toys yesterday, with additional product set to roll out in the US at select retailers next month. Toys R Us will be the exclusive retailer for the My Little Pony Magic Potion line in Canada, when it launches next year.
