To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I know it won't do an in-person account justice (especially in the plastic packaging glare), but the ponies inside the box look dirty and scuffed, there are quite a few paint detail flaws and Pinkie Pie appears to have a sharp ridge to her face. It's a pretty expensive gift and I'm disappointed at the quality.
Not recommend for toddlers (or kids that don’t care for their toys). They are very cute, but the tails come off easily. Good size for a travel toy, but I have to search for 6 ponies and 6 tails every time she plays with them. We have only had them a couple weeks and most ponies are forever tailless (not cute). Makes a very useful cake topper though, which was my original purpose.
WHY do the tails come off??? Seriously, I had to go back and read through the product description and read labels on the box to see if there was some reason for this. It was the first thing my 4yo asked when she first played with them. It's weird, guys. Makes no sense. Unless it's to switch tails between the ponies? My daughter did that once and thought it was hilarious. Anyway, she's ridiculously careful with all her stuff so the tails haven't really been a huge problem. Other than the tail weirdness, these are high quality ponies. It's nice to not have to worry about their hair. Which my daughter also pointed out. Apparently these are the "fake" ponies and the other ones have "real hair." Whatever, less work for me.
I like these because they bear a pretty good resemblance to the characters from the show.
Notable complaints are that the cutie marks should be on both sides, glue is a little sloppy and Applejack should really have her hat since she is rarely without it in the show. In this set Applejacks also has a scuff on the cheek and a slightly misaligned head. Rarity has a minor bubble defect In her mane.
All in all, they’re not bad for the price considering it’s six fairly large figurines.
I wish I had read the reviews before purchasing. The tails are a huge problem and I cannot understand why they would be removable. I finally convinced my kids to stop pulling the tails off after the first two days. However, any amount of playing with these inevitably breaks the tails off. The tiny part that actually sticks into the backside of the pony is too small and now they're broken off inside.
So disappointed that I spent over $20 for these and now the tails are breaking off. My kids are so sad.
These figures are super cute, but Pinky Pie (I am being informed by a very small human that this is the name of this all pink pony) is very fragile. Her front leg fell off within an hour of being out of the package, and now her tail snapped off. This is what led me to leaving a review. The tails normally detach and pop right back no problem, but not this one. The ball of the tail snapped off inside the little tail hole. So, now she is down a leg and a tail. My children have moved on with life and still play with the ponies, but maybe don’t get these if you are bothered by constantly breaking toys. They are very bright and cute, but they aren’t surviving a little girl sitting and playing gently in one spot very well!
