It’s toy fair season, so Hasbro is starting to send out some press kits on what you’ll be seeing there. In the realm of pony, there’s 3 things they’re pushing: Rainbow Rocks Equestria Girl toys, the Rainbow Dash that does backflips and a new toy, the Rainbow Kingdom Playset.
Slated for fall 2014, the PR says that kids can “discover the newest royal empire” with this playset. A key can be used to unlock various things in the playset, which was a popular mechanic for toys in the ’90s. There’s a “cloud car” and the slide as well.
The picture shows a Princess Luna toy, but no word on if she comes with the set or not. There’s also been no mention of some sort of rainbow kingdom in any of the MLP merchandise or media so far, so this might be pointing towards something in the show towards the end of season 4.
More info on this and all the other toy fair toys will come out when we get closer to the NYC Toy Fair in February.
Edit: Another blurb came out, this time about an Equestria Girls doll line.
My Little Pony Equestria Girls Dolls That Rock: Ages 5 and up, Spring 2014
Fans of the My Little Pony Equestria Girls characters will love to sing alongside their favorite characters with the My Little Pony Equestria Girls Dolls That Rock collection. Kids can make the Pinkie Pie, Twilight Sparkle, or Adagio Dazzle dolls high five and each doll will “come to life”, singing the My Little Pony Equestria Girls song. Fans can also high-five their dolls and sing along.
Pictures of the Twilight and Pinkie Pie have been out and about for awhile, but Adagio Dazzle is a new one. “Dazzle” is a common last name that Hasbro has been tacking on to show character names in order to make them trademarked merchandise. Adagio, being a music term, fits into the story of the Equestria Girls having a battle of the bands-type thing. No pictures are up, but we’ll keep an eye out for this!
