Cabbage Patch Ponies aren’t part of My Little Pony even though they’re made by Hasbro

If there was an award for Most Commonly Mistaken for My Little Pony, the Cabbage Patch Kids Ponies would win it, hooves down. You can’t blame people for getting confused! After all, they ARE ponies (albeit, larger ponies then a standard My Little Pony) and the ARE branded as being made by Hasbro.

CPK Ponies aren’t fakies either, though many collectors group them that way for simplicity’s sake. While fakies are knock-off MLP toys, CPK ponies are their own entirely separate toy line. CPK ponies came in small, MLP-like, sizes and also a larger size big enough for a Cabbage Patch Kid doll to ride.

While finding a CPK pony when you’re looking for a My Little Pony can be disappointing, there are actually some very nice ponies in that set so you may want to consider starting to collect them as well. They have a chubbier look but there is definitely something cute about them.

Let’s discuss this Hasbro Factory toy movie. Better yet, let’s write My Little Pony into it.

So let’s take a second to talk about this article. Hasbro sent out a press release to this effect so this news was all over the place a few days ago.

Now the original press release was talking about combining all their properties into a movie called Hasbro Factory. The movie is real and is set to be released by Paramount in the near future.

Hasbro already sold the movie rights to many of their board game properties so this could be the glorious Monopoly/Connect Four big screen cross-over we’ve all longed for. (Note: I own a knock-off version of Connect Four called Four-in-a-Row which I find refreshingly direct. I also own a knock-off of Battleship called Sea Battle. You know that you are jealous.)

But there is a lot of speculation that this could be a movie involving their toy properties. My Little Pony, Littlest Pet Shop, G. I. Joe, Transformers, Mr. Potato Head, Baby Alive, Gloworm, Easy-Bake Ovens, Tonka trucks, FurReal Friends and more could all be together in one glorious movie.

Let’s put our heads together and think about what that movie could conceivably be like. Which characters would they be most likely to use? Is Mr. Potato head locked into something with Pixar so he’s unavailable? Does Micheal Bay have a total lock on Transformers?

Who knows? Instead, let’s wildly speculate on what this movie could be about. You don’t have to use every property, but try to use as many as you can as you share your “In world…” style movie tagline below.

And you know what site you are on so, please, shoehorn the ladies of MLP in there somewhere, hmm?

Here are a list of Hasbro’s most popular properties to give you inspiration (links lead to Wikipedia to jog your memory):
