Review of the 2012 McDonald’s My Little Pony Happy Meal Toys

My Little Pony McDonald's 2012 Happy Meal toys

I’ve gotten my hands on the complete set of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic McDonald’s Happy Meal toys for 2012. These toys are now available in some McDonald’s restaurants, with or without a children’s Happy Meal. We’ll a look at all 8 figures, the key chain accessory they come with and do a quick comparison to last year’s similar but not identical Happy Meal toys. This batch includes the main six ponies Applejack, Rainbow Dash, Twilight Sparkle, Rarity, Fluttershy and Pinkie Pie as well as Cheerilee and Lily Blossom. A big thanks to Gemma for picking these up for me.

The toys are of a pretty good quality. The mane is once again plastic but the tail is still combable hair. Most of the toys have at least one leg in the air making it difficult to make them stand on anything but a very flat surface.

The toys are very similar to the 2011 toys, though the poses are slightly different, this one’s model is flipped, as most of them are.

    Even though the keychain dongle seems sketchy, they hold up quite well. I’ve been hanging my ponies off of my bicycle seat and even after a 20 mile ride they don’t fall off. However I have noticed it didn’t take much fo.r the paint to start scratching off

    Thank you so much! My sister and I have been looking all over the internet trying to figure out Lily Blossom’s name. You have just saved me 2+ more hours of scouring the internet for her name.
