Tickets for the 12th annual MY LITTLE PONY Fair went on sale last Tuesday and we had record sales for our opening week. Several of our ticket packages sold out within hours of being released. It was craziness! I felt like I was selling tickets to a rock concert! We still have plenty of general admission and children’s tickets available, so don’t fear if you didn’t get your tickets right away.
Today, I’ve been busy answering emails… so many emails! I think we may need to add a FAQ section to the website this year. I’ll be right on that after I get all the game, event, presentation, and contest information moved over from the old website. Speaking of which, if you haven’t had a chance to check out the new and improved www.mylittleponycon.com head over and give it a look. I really like the way it turned out.
I’m doing much better delegating Fair duties this year, or at least I’m on the way to being much better. We have an official Game Coordinator (RuthAnn), Advertising Program Manager and Contest Coordinator (Amber), Program Designer (Jenn), Digital Events App Developer (Renae), and then the amazing, Mary is awesome at taking the reins and helping out whenever I get underwater and things get crazy. We’re also adding the fabulous Jenny to staff this year, but she doesn’t yet have a fancy title.
2015 is on track to be the biggest and best Fair ever and I couldn’t do it without the help of these wonderful people!
This press release landed in my inbox today. I’m ready for a new season to begin and to meet even more new MLP characters! I’m especially excited to see the Pony that Lena Hall will be voicing. My husband and I were actually at the Tony Awards last year to see Lena win her Tony and make her acceptance speech with a My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic shout out.
“Pony fans, rejoice! An all-new season of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, the beloved series created by Hasbro Studios, debuts on Discovery Family April 4, with two back-to-back premiere episodes beginning at 11am ET / 10am CT. Packed with new adventures, characters and self-discovery, Season 5 kicks off with a very special one-hour premiere, as our favorite ponies continue to explore the true magic of friendship only possible in Equestria.
Toy Fair is coming… which means we get our first glimpse of the upcoming 2015 product line. This year’s theme is Cutie Mark Magic and as a result, the regular brushable Pony figures have extra designs on their bodies (similar to the G1 Twice-As Fancy Pony line.)

While these girls (and others in their set) are already available in stores, there are many other products that are yet to be released… Personally, I’m super excited about the Canterlot Castle Playset!! The following photo popped up on the German Hasbro Newsroom website and I’m pretty excited about it.

Not quite sure where I will be able to fit this behemoth playset yet, but we’ll tackle that problem in time. I desperately want to see the front of the playset as I hope it has some of the amazing detail that is present in the cartoon depictions.
Here’s to hoping that Toy Fair shows us some awesome new additions for our collections!
