Wow, it's pretty neat that new variants are still being found in the wild today. I wonder how she came to exist, especially if she turns out to be OOAK. ^.^

Congrats on your gorgeous new pony!

Thank you all! :D And yes, it would be very interesting to know how she came to exist. Someone just put the wrong colors in to the stamping machine?? Or is she a prototype? That would be super exiting if she would be OOAK! :party:
I wonder would she be a good candidate to be added to the my little wiki site.. :)

Definitely! Maybe another collector has more info somewhere! Either way, definitely worth being part of the wiki.

The one in the US commercial certainly has a pink butterfly in the place where there is normally a blue one, but it isn't a match. The US one is here:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wkrloYNN7xQ
The UK advert sadly used the US images :/ although the words were all different.

I know that a lot of the stuff in scandinavia came in UK style packaging so I wonder if a good place to check would be 1988 catalogues for the UK and for Europe for this set. I say 1988 because they're not in the 1987 line in Europe. I have the pictures for the 1987 Hasbro catalogue but not 1988.

And especially if Finland had catalogues of this kind...or club material...or comic adverts. I remember Finland had comics, so maybe detective work might track down some clues about her history?

She might, though, be a mystery pony forever, like Susie and Billie - clearly factory made but with no real explanation why there only seems to be one of her.

Right now we don't know she is OOAK but if she isn't, it seems strange that nobody has ever mentioned it before. In any case, definitely keep her very safe and hopefully we'll track down some clues to answer the questions she raises!

I´m so glad that you all have been checking your Dancing Butterflies for me! :grouphug:
It was very nice to see the one in the US commercial. Thank you for sharing the link Taffeta. :)
It was also fun to notice that the butterflies on that pony in the commercial are kind of a different shaped butterflies, and they are stamped on a slightly different places than the usual too. Interesting! :nod:

I have two DB's, both have blue like the left-most one in your picture.  Seems to me the most likely situation that would have resulted in your reversed pink girl is someone at the factory loaded the paints in the wrong stampers, and it wasn't caught by QC before they got packaged up and left the factory.  So there probably are more out there, but they may not be in collector hands (or just nobody noticed).  Good find!

The one in the commercial is probably a prototype that was stamped by hand.
