My impression is Hasbro's toy designers don't watch the show much, if at all. The show people might try to explain why Baby Twilight Sparkle is an alicorn, like everyone getting deaged.  But as far as the toy designers go, I think that's just not something it makes sense to worry about from a toy perspective.

That's assuming these toys even get a "show" explanation.  They might be like Princess Skyla (the first G4 plush alicorn baby) or Princess Sterling & Princess Other-Alicorn, where they're just toys and don't get anything in the way of show appearances.

+-*Its Real Goblin Hours*-+
Wow these are super weird. And confusing. I keep wanting to like stuff but can't. It's like the bodies are a good idea by themselves, they have 'pony like' limbs (finally) but then the turbo giant heads wreck it for me. Then, the style of the eyes are cute, with the hearts & glitter....but they're way too big for even the super-bigheads. And it's like how did they get from 'its a pony' to somehow "The horse is the animal known for having a perfectly spherical head"? Where does that keep coming from? I also agree that the 'nose' does look like foofy over-done lips...eerie human lips. You can see almost a good idea in there but...

Yes the 2 random princesses were Gold Lilly (Buzz-saw) and Sterling (a diamond)
Also like G4 Sunny Daze and Cotton Cloud can go up there with Skyla...they had that mold and they were gonna milk it, show be thrown to the side or not. That's super duper likely to be what they did here. Just 'baby ize' it, because everything ends with babies.
Monster high got babies and stopped,
bratz babiez and stopped,
G3 turned into 3.5 babies doing magical belching ...and stopped...
when they trot out the babies that's the end of the line it seems like so this is fitting because we know it's ending. With the show down to 'the last season' there's not likely much chance to baby-ize everyone to reinforce the toyline. Plus, their history of ignoring cool stuff in the show that would've made a great toy (changeling toys? no. Griffen toys? no. non-mane toys? no.) shows that they don't care about the show at all. Having them make sense (no wings, no symbol, no curls) would be too much effort and 'make less pretty toy' so they wouldn't be bothered.

Looking at the size/construction of the sippy bottles, I rather bet these are big. I also bet they're costly.
What a wacky thing to turn up late in the game.

As to Twilight being an alicorn: I’m about 90% sure we’re going to get an episode or some type of tie-in media where the cast are magically transformed into babies for a day. There’s also the inconsistencies of Pinkie’s curly hair (it was flat and straight until she received her cutie mark as a school-age pony, in the show), the fact that Twilight is wearing a crown, and the fact that they have cutie marks AT ALL. Even if they never do an episode where they’re magically de-aged, that’s where my head canon is. XP



I like that explanation for why Twilight is a winged unicorn :) but I also think it's also because kids will expect a baby Twilight to be a winged unicorn instead of a unicorn.

I just noticed their cutie marks on their upper legs instead of their rumps but I guess that's due to the diapers covering where the cutie marks should be,


I'm afraid I saw this and went, oh no, the return of the scary babies from G3.5! XD.

I'm kind of at the point LAW mentioned in the Unpopular opinions thread though. I'm over anything featuring any of the M6.


There's also something disconcertingly teeny weeny pony about their facial proportions...



The G3.5 babies were relaesed at the end of G3 right? Maybe Hasbro is reapeating themselves and these huge babies are the end of G4.

Maybe they'll be reborn as is? That'd explain why Twilight is a baby alicorn.

That's the one! XD 

I agree with the comments about these babies being duck-lipped.  I am pretty sure they were inspired by LOL Surprise dolls:

They're not my thing, but they are crazy popular with kids.  Sometimes I ask the clerks at Target what the most popular toys are at the moment and the top two answers are Shopkins and LOL Surprise.  (Of course the answer I am always hoping for is Basic Fun's MLPs, lol.)

These scare me.  They look like some of the jokes we came up with ages ago where there was a thread we made up fake G5 leaks.  I think it was Apple Dazzle, the G5 pony with peg legs and a tiny smooshed face with massive eyes? :lol:

Never have I ever seen anything so ugly. so putrid. so repulsive. so horrendously atrociously abominable.

3.5s were waaaaaaaaaaaay better.

Questions like these are what keep me up at night.
