Flatfoot Ponies were the first My Little Ponies, printed in Year 1, in 1982. All of them were printed in the same pose -- the Flatfoot Pose -- with their heads facing forward and down. Their name derives from the fact that they were the only My Little Ponies made so that the undersides of their hooves are flat rather than concave.
All of the ponies in the Flatfoot set were reprinted the following year in the Collector Pose, which is very similar to the Flatfoot Pose but has concave feet and longer front legs, and stands with the head held a little higher. The Collector Ponies were otherwise identical to the Year 1 Flatfoot Ponies: their names, colors, symbols, accessories, and packaging were all the same.
Each of the Flatfoot Ponies came with a basic comb and a ribbon.
