This thread can be deleted, I'm in contact with someone who has the catalogues.

Re: Hasbro Catalogue Owner help please - Prototype Birthday Pony

Mail orders weren't shown in any of the catalogues.  The prototypes are in a pamphlet that was packed with various ponies, advertising the mail orders.  (I'll bet the kids who ordered them were surprised when they were in totally different poses!)  There's a different pamphlet showing them in the correct poses.

The TAF babies are also prototypes in this, they are Peek-a-Boo baby ponies with turnable heads. :)

This isn't those birthday babies, it's the Birthday Pony.

@Pandabear_chan, I don't own that book, but it is definitely US from the spelling and the packaging and that would make it around 1991-2 as it's in the final year line. It looks a bit like the book I have from Hasbro UK for 1990 that went to stores. Does it mention on the Wiki who donated it? That might help you track them down? (I assume you need a more detailed image).

(I am also amused...gifts for girls. Sorry boys. Not for you.)

It doesn't look like its from the 1991 catalog, you can see the scans here http://www.parrygamepreserve.com/features/catalogs/hasbro/1991HasbroToyFair.php


Based on the styling of the catalog it looks like it might be from the 1992 spring catalog https://insta-stalker.com/post/BtFbRRcHM3O/ and here https://insta-stalker.com/post/BtFbYjNn_B6/

Perhaps you could message the owner of that Instagram if he could take some photos of the pony section to confirm

Oh sorry, I misread, LOL.  Hmm . . . not sure.  1990 to 1991 would be logical since she was such a late release (last year of the line in the US).

That little girl's shirt sure takes me back to those radical 90s fashions.

@ LadyMoondancer

Don't worry sometimes I'm a tad confused either: first typing, then reading, then thinking *lol*

@ Taffeta

Thanks so much for your input, I'm pretty sure the catalogue is from the US too, thanks for confirming it. The picture was donated by TraderTif. I don't know whether she's still an active member. The only video from her at youtube is from 2011. You're right I need a more detailed picture. 

@SaraMari

I cannot because I have no instagram. If anyone can help me, that'd be awesome!

Awh :hug: you're a doll! Thanks so much. In case he has the picture, can you ask him whether I can send him an email?
