The first pony playsets were released in Year 2. Each of them consisted of a pony, a pony pet or friend, and a playset with appropriate accessories. All of the playset ponies were later re-released through mail-order offers, and some of the playsets were released several times, with different names and colors, and sometimes different ponies.

Peachy is a pale peach-colored adult earth pony with pink hair and blue eyes. Her symbol is a pattern of pink hearts (view). She is in the Collector Pose, and looks almost exactly like the original My Pretty Pony which was sold in 1981, the year before the first My Little Ponies were made.
Peachy came with the Pretty Parlor -- a carrying case which opens out to become a beauty salon. The building is blue with a white hinged gate, and a white platform on the floor with a place to display a pony's nameplate. On one wall is a white row of hooks for hanging tack; on the other is a white shelf. In the back is a mirror. The outside rear of the building pictures the My Little Pony logo and a window over a flowerbed, with Butterscotch looking out.
The Pretty Parlor came with Twinkles the cat, an orange and brown tabby. Among the salon's accessories was a pink basket that could be strapped to Peachy's back, and in which Twinkles could ride.
The Pretty Parlor's accessories were as follows: a purple saddle; a purple bridle; a white hat; a yellow hat; a pink saddle blanket that tied with a ribbon; eight nameplates (one for each Year 1 pony, one for Peachy, and one for Lemon Drop); two ribbons; a pink basic comb; a pink heart brush; and colored decals.
The Pretty Parlor was re-released in Year 3, and was also available through mail order offers. It was released again in Year 6, in new colors, and was renamed The Brush Me Beautiful Boutique (in Europe it was called The Grooming Parlor).

Sprinkles is a pale lavender-pink adult pegasus pony with blue hair and blue eyes. Her symbol is six blue ducks (view). Sprinkles was the first pegasus pony printed with a non-glittery symbol. She is in the Firefly Pose. Sprinkles was later released again through mail order offers, and the second version was a brighter shade of pink.
Sprinkles came with a working pony shower and bubble-maker called the My Little Pony Waterfall. The base of the Waterfall is shaped like white clouds, with a flat shower-area in the bottom for Sprinkles to stand in. Behind the Waterfall is a smiling yellow sun. The shower itself is shaped like a rainbow, and the showerhead is shaped like a cloud. To work the shower, you fill the base with water and press a shower pump near the rainbow. To make bubbles, you fill the base with bubble-mix and press a pump near the sun. The Waterfall came with an aqua towel, two purple curlers, a ribbon, a pink basic comb, and a pink, sun-shaped, foam bath-brush. Also included was Duck Soup -- an orange duck with yellow feet and bill, and a yellow collar.
The Waterfall was released again in Year 3, and in Year 5 it was released a third time in the UK, in different colors; but it came with Cascade instead of Sprinkles.
Lemon Drop is a yellow adult earth pony with lavender hair and lavender eyes. Her symbol is a pattern of purple raindrops (view). She is in the Collector Pose. Lemon Drop was later re-released in a mail order offer. In the UK, there was also a Baby Lemon Drop in Baby Ember's pose, and in Germany there was a Baby Lemon Drop in Baby Blossom's pose.
Lemon Drop came with the Show Stable -- a large, white stable with a pale blue floor, a lavender roof which lifts open, and four hinged white stable doors in front. In the back of the stable is a row of white hooks for hanging tack. On the stable roof is a removable yellow pony-shaped weather-vane, and spaces for three flags.
The Show Stable came with Brandy -- a pale, tan-colored dog with brown ears, eyes, nose, and tongue. The Stable's accessories were as follows: a white bed with a purple headboard; a pink blanket; two green shelves; two green troughs; three yellow trophy cups; three white ribbons with colored decals indicating first, second, and third place; six pieces of green fencing; a white adjustable pole-jump with a yellow pole; two white A-style jumps; a pink saddle; a pink bridle; a purple basic comb; a yellow heart brush; a hair ribbon; and four flags with colored stickers: one yellow with butterfly symbols, one pink with heart symbols, one green with flower symbols, and one blue with star symbols.
There are spaces for three of the four flags on the Show Stable roof, and a space for the fourth flag on Lemon Drop's pink saddle. The flags were removable and could be swapped around.
The Show Stable was released again in Year 4 as a mail order offer, and again, with new colors, in Year 7, under the name Home Sweet Home. Mail-order Lemon Drop had blue eyes, not lavender.
Baby Ember is a pale lavender baby earth pony with lavender hair and dark purple eyes. Her symbol is a white five-pointed star (view). She is in the Baby Ember Pose.
Baby Ember came with an activity set, a book, and an audio cassette called "Ember's Dream," which was part of the "Listen n' Fun" book and tape series.
Three other baby ponies named Ember were released the same year through a mail order only offer; one was lavender, one blue, and one pink. None of them had symbols.
Majesty is a white adult unicorn pony with lavender eyes. Her hair is blue with a white strip. Her symbol is five glittery blue flower-like shapes, each with four petals (view). She is in the Glory Pose. Majesty was later re-released as a mail-order offer.
Majesty came with Dream Castle -- a pink, two-storied castle which opens out on one side. Dream Castle has purple floors on the lower level and white floors on the upper, and a working blue drawbridge depicting a unicorn's head. There are three turrets, each with a blue, conical top and a white flag with a dark pink decal. There are several decals within the castle as well.
Dream Castle came with Spike the baby Dragon, a character from the My Little Pony movies and TV shows. Spike is purple with a white ridged belly, green spines down his back and tail, green claws, and green eyes.
Dream Castle came with the following accessories: a blue throne with a purple cloth; a yellow table; a blue oval mirror with Majesty's name on the base; two yellow jumping rings; a blue trunk; a purple cape that tied in front; four yellow pony shoes in a blue shoebox; a yellow crown; a blue princess hat with blue and pink ribbons; two blue goblets; a yellow basket that Spike could ride in; five long strips of purple felt; two short strips of yellow felt; a yellow star brush; and two ribbons.
Dream Castle was re-released in Year 3 without alteration. In Year 7, it was released a third time, in new colors and without Majesty.
