Firstly I did not purchase these on Amazon.com, but at a local Walgreens store and as one reviewer mentioned, it's better to check there first for price and quality. This is definitely one toy you'll want to pick up after looking them over to make sure everything's alright with the item.

As someone who collects both Beanie Babies and My Little Pony memorabilia, this was one item that I had to have when I first heard about them, but held off from ordering online and I'm glad I did.

To start off these are exceptionally cute but aren't quite a Beanie Baby, which is odd considering they're from the Ty Company. Instead I'd say they're more akin to a plushie than an actual bean bag toy. Using beans only in the hooves as a counter weight to the rest of the body. However this doesn't quite work out too well and it is a bit top heavy still regardless, making it easy to fall over if you were to store and display them like I am.

As for play value, I'd say it's actually not that bad. They're cute and soft to the touch unlike the hard plastic of more traditional pony figurines. Yet, just like the figurines they have actual doll hair, unlike the cut felt ribbons of more commonly found plushies that are in the stores these days. So they're safe at least due to softness and still retain the play value and feel of the actual toy line. Not bad at all.

However I do suggest using a doll brush to brush the hair out upon getting one of these (or all three in my case) to remove any stray hair or fuzz balls that may be hidden in the mane and tail. Do note that all the dolls with the exception of Pinkie Pie have bands tying the mane and have their tails tucked under their body when they're new. If not then it's likely been played with a bit. Also look over the body a bit too once you get one. Some hairs are coming out of fairly random locations. Found one right under an eye myself.

After reading a few other reviews, the wings on the Rainbow Dash doll do seem to be held fairly weakly to the body, so it's best to be careful with them. Also I've noticed the horns on the Twilight Sparkle do come in various qualities from bad (stray threads, the fabric underneath showing, et cetera) to decent (the same as described previously but better looking). I even noticed size differences in the horns. So I'd highly recommend looking at your local retailers if your interested in Twilight specifically. Think I passed up half a dozen of her before finding one that looked good enough to put on my pony shelf.

As for overall quality I'll say they're quite decent. Not the best Ty has put out from my experiences with the company's products, but better than what's currently on the market at least if you're looking for something soft, pony related and under $10. They'd make a cute stocking stuffer for pony fans of all ages in my opinion. Well worth looking into at the least if you're interested in these items.

Within a few days of receiving Rainbow Dash one of her wings split and I had to sew it, a few days after that the other wing did the same thing! Very frustrating and disappointing.

Adorable, Measuring 7.5" tall, 7" nose to tail, 3" side to side. Ty quality materials and stitching, the wings are soft and moveable, and the hair/tail are more hair-like than other MLP plushies. an adorable addition to your collection.

My friends daughter really wanted to have this for her Christmas present. Instead of driving to local stores to look for it, with one click I get what I need. Of course the little girl is so happy!

I got this Rainbow Dash to recreate the battle between her and Starscream as seen on Youtube( Link: [...] ). Unfortunately I have misplaced Starscream some time ago.

Good things about this product:
1. Looks like Rainbow Dash
2. Soft I guess...
4. Uhh... it like stands up on it's own, unlike some stupid bear shaped beany baby things.
E. Manufactured

Bad things about this product:
A. Does not fly despite ample wing surface.
2. No sonic Rainboom
D. Often fights Pinky Pie... I have no idea why.

I would recommend buying this. Totally.

Fast shipping, well packaged, good quality. Pony was smaller than I expected but I did not read the dimensions correctly. The size is listed correctly on the website.
