MY LITTLE PONY
The MY LITTLE PONY franchise remains a cherished brand worldwide by fans of all ages. Behind a successful global entertainment, licensing and retail strategy which re-launched the brand in 2010, MY LITTLE PONY has grown to represent approximately $650 million dollars at retail across all consumer products in 2013. Its popularity is boosted by the successful hit animated series
My Little Pony Friendship is Magic
, produced by Hasbro Studios and airing in 180 territories. The series will kick off its fifth season in 2015. In 2013, Hasbro grew both the core MY LITTLE PONY segment as well as successfully launched MY LITTLE PONY EQUESTRIA GIRLS. According to NPD, for the week of Christmas (Dec 22nd to Dec 28th) Hasbro's EQUESTRIA GIRLS was the #1 selling Fashion Themed Doll in the US, taking the top spot from veteran players in the toy category.

The girls must rock their way to the top, and outshine rival ADAGIO DAZZLE and her band THE DAZZLINGS, to restore harmony back to CANTERLOT HIGH. Fans can rock out alongside their favorite MY LITTLE PONY EQUESTRIA GIRLS characters with colorful fashion dolls, playsets, and vehicles inspired by the new animated film set to debut this fall,
