Which Mexican Ponies were made?

Back in the 1980s, when My Little Pony was a very popular toy line throughout the world, Mexico was no exception.
Mexican My Little Pony production started in 1984 and ended when the MLP line reached its end in the US.
There were several types of ponies sold in Mexico (almost all ponies produced in the US). However, not all of them were Mexican ponies. Some ponies sold in Mexico were the US ponies direcly imported, while some others were originals.
There isn't anything certain about how ponies were distributed, since both versions (US and Mexican) of a same pony could be found at the same time.
Therefore, a Mexican Pony is a pony that was made in Mexico and has different characteristics than its US counterpart.

Mexican My Little Pony were produced by two different toy companies: Lily Ledy and Auriken
Lily Ledy was the first company who produced this toy, and later on, when the factory was burnt, Hasbro licensed Auriken to produce new ponies.
Lily Ledy ponies and Auriken ponies, though both are Mexican, have several differences from each other in various aspects.

Lily Ledy:

  • Lily Ledy was a major toy company in Mexico during the 1980s. They produced toys like: My Little Pony, Strawberry Shortcake, Star Wars, Cabbage Patch Kids, Care Bears, G.I. Joe, Spiderman, and others.
Lily Ledy ponies have "Made In Mexico" stamped on one front hoof and "Lily Ledy" stamped on the other one.
  • Lily Ledy only produced the first set of Collector Ponies (Blue Belle, Cotton Candy, Blossom, Snuzzle, Butterscotch, and Minty) plus Peachy and Lemondrop.
  • Lily Ledy ponies have their heads glued, while Auriken ponies don't.
  • Two versions of these ponies were produced: Flat feet and concave feet. They both share different characteristics other than the feet, as shown in this pic comparing FF Lily Ledy Blossom and CF Lily Ledy Blossom.


  • Auriken was another powerful Mexican toy company from the 1980s. They produced a grand variety of toys from several brands. Auriken no longer exists, but it was licensed by Hasbro in the 1980s to produce MLP in Mexico
Auriken ponies have blank hooves, with nothing written in either of their hooves. They can be either flat or concave.
  • Auriken produced most of the Mexican ponies that were ever made. Their production includes the set of Collector ponies (flat feet only) as well as the other Mexican sets that were made.
  • Auriken also chose to import several ponies. They imported ponies and translated the boxes and cards to Spanish, printing their logo on them. It is believed they did this because of the limited amount of ponies they were producing. Since there was such a high demand, it was cheaper for them to produce small amounts of ponies and import the rest. This also allowed them to offer ponies with release dates closer to US release dates.

Mexican Ponies had different characteristics that made them unique compared to any other pony in the world. These are the main characteristics that can help identify a Mexican pony from other ponies.
  • Their bodies are chubbier. They're fatter, and have big butts LOL.
  • They are also a little bit smaller than regular US ponies.
  • Most collector pose ponies usually look like they're gonna fall on their noses (and they just might!) since their back legs are longer than their front ones.
  • Their plastic is softer, most of the times it's squishier around their tummies and harder at their feet. It doesn't have a high quality, so they often get "wrinkles" under their bellies.
  • However, for certain ponies (those in Skydancer's pose), their plastic seems to be harder and of different texture.
  • Their symbols are usually a variation of US symbols. Some might look the same, but they have differences in the rotation, quality of paint, colors and patterns.
  • US ponies with glittery symbols are represented as non glittery.

Here we can see how Mexican Blue Belle (left) is smaller than US Blue Belle, and how, even though she is based in the US pony, she has several very different characteristics.

  • For collector ponies their eyes show stronger lines, and their left eye is distinctively larger than their right one. (This applies for all versions of collector ponies except Lily Ledy Flat Feet Ponies).
  • Usually the "glow" in their eyes is misplaced.



Mexican collector ponies' different sized eyes.

  • Mexican ponies' hair is gorgeous! They usually have super long hair (up to the floor). They have long forelocks as well.
  • Hair texture varies a lot. Some ponies hair feels almost like human hair, and some other hair feels like cotton. Other ponies' hair feels normal. The way their hair was rooted also varies, especially in ponies with stripes and princess ponies.
  • Certain hair colors tend to get super frizzy, just like Brazilians. These colors are bright red, white and dark pink.
  • Prince Ponies didn't have tinsel in their hair.
  • Their tails are usually held with some sort of cord or string. It usually even pokes out of their tail holes. There are certain ponies that have their tails held with some sort of wax.

Mexico gave birth to some of the prettiest pony variants.
Some of the sets that were created were:
  • Collector Ponies
  • Earthlings, Unicorns and Pegasus
  • Rainbow Ponies
  • Sundae Best Ponies
  • Prince Ponies
  • Babies
  • Exclusives
  • Even fakies!
  • So Soft ponies were sold in Mexico, as well as Non-so-soft ponies. The two versions of same ponies were sold in Mexico so I'm not sure how these were produced/distributed.
