Petite Ponies, part of the vintage MLP collection, are the smallest My Little Ponies ever made. They were printed in Year 8 and Year 9, around the time that production of new regular-sized My Little Ponies started to drop off. The Petites came in six poses -- five Earth Pony poses and one Pegasus pose. There were no Petite unicorns.
The first Petite Ponies were released in Year 8. There were three sets of Petites with plastic manes and tails molded onto their bodies, and three sets of Petites with long, brushable tails made of pony hair. There were also eight Petite playsets: three houses, three shops, and two larger structures, the Carousel and the Palace. All of these playsets came with furniture and one or two Petite ponies. No Petite playsets were printed after Year 8 in the US, nor were any Petite Ponies with molded plastic tails.
Year 9 was the second and final year of Petite Ponies. Nine sets were released, each belonging to one of three types: Twinkle, Bright Sight, or Glowing Magic Ponies. All of the Year 9 Petite Ponies had brushable tails. It is not clear exactly which ponies came together in each of these three groups; we have grouped them as they are commonly grouped by collectors.
