Title: Eh, just slap a strawberry on it!
Post by: Shiromisa on November 15, 2013, 08:16:08 PM
As I've been getting more into older gen ponies, I've noticed something. There are a few G3 ponies that I've been calling "strawberries and a thing" ponies. Strawberry Reef, Pepperberry...how did they come to be??

"A pepper shaker is too...plain."
"What, should I add some salt too? Coriander maybe? Parsley?"
"Nah, nah. What about a strawberry?"
"Oh, perfect!"

lol, thinking of G3 as an older gen is hard to wrap my mind around, but yes, there are many g3s that are full on head scratchers. I bet there are stories behind all of them. I didn't know this significance of waterfire until a hasbro rep told me. :p

"Strawberries and a thing!" XD

Even Holly Dash, whose name has nothing to do with strawberries, has one for a cutie mark! I know it's G4, but...

Maybe they noticed a higher rate of sales of "strawberry" ponies?  I like strawberry stuff... and pink stuff...

I guess pepper on strawberries is something people actually eat and really like. Perhaps the person who designed Pepperberry's CM/symbol liked it? I think it's interesting. Very unique. :frog:

It would seem that it's G3's version of G4's trend of adding 'Dazzle' to every stinking pony.

So what is the story with Waterfire?

Don't forget Strawberry Sunset! And Rainbowberry! And Strawberry Surprise!

I must admit I always thought Pepperberry was a very odd combination.

I think I know. There is an event several times in the summer and fall in Rhode Island (where Hasbro is located) where they light little bonfires in little floating metal baskets on the river that goes through the city. This event is called Waterfire.

On the Pepperberry thing. Pepperberry is another word for peppercorn.

Lol, I did notice that there are lots of strawberries in G3! I only have a relatively small G3 collection, but have 4 different ponies with Strawberries...Strawberry Reef, Rainbowberry, Bumbleberry and Sweetberry

*mind blown*

Though I do have to say, Strawberry Reef is a really odd pony... a berry and some coral? I mean... okay...
Title: Re: Eh, just slap a strawberry on it!
Post by: Mermaid on November 16, 2013, 03:03:59 AM
Strawberry reef always gets me!

I love pepper berry I think she's super unique! I have to admit after hearing people say it was good I tried it. Can't say I loved it though...;)

I've heard that it's popular in parts of Europe, but no clue if that's true or not.

Holly Dash is the OC of Holly Gierbrecht, one of the animators.
It's pretty cool her OC got turned into a toy. I love the design of her "character".

Eh...its really no worse than the sheer over use of the word Rainbow. :P And even with all the strawberries I think I still find the imagination shown in early G3 better than in any of G4. Maybe they just found the strawberries the friendliest and prettiest fruit? :P

Maybe they have seen how popular Sugarberry has been over the years, and has made similar styles to satisfy the consumers.  I must admit myself that I have become susceptible to anything strawberry-themed, especially if there are ponies involved!  :)

Rainbows also seem to be a thing. I guess the Hasbro creative process goes like this:
"Hey guys, what's the girliest thing you can think of?" "RAINBOW FLOWER HEART STRAWBERRY!" "GENIUS!"

Is there a pony named just strawberry? Or that has strawberry in the name but no strawberry on their cutie mark?

No its always Strawberry and some other combination and they do all at least have a strawberry somewhere in their symbol. :)

*blush* sorry! I saw your post but you said "I think" so I wasn't sure if that was it or not. I am notorious for making educated guesses. Oh gosh that didn't come out right, I don't mean you're guessing, I mean I read that you thought so I wasn't sure *stuffs foot in mouth* nevermind just ignore me.

I just had too
best strawberry pony ever
I wish Hasbro would make a mini brushable taf pony with strawberries
I mean if you have the capability of making something and can do it to perfection then do just that
sorry but this is perfection and I want to see a perfect g4 taf brushable
the red against the white body and ofcourse it has to be strawberries
perfection
Hasbro if you are in here reading this then consider this not a poke but a gigantic shove in the right direction for a new g4 line
the taf you have new coming out
cough cough compared to this
this is not crazy but perfection
so yes slap a strawberry lots on it

Actually- I remember getting overwhelmed with my G3 choices and specifically limiting myself to ONLY ponies with Strawberries and/or Rainbows on them at some point- luckily that included so many!

LOVE strawberries- and rainbows...  (In fact my other collections are Strawberry Shortcake and Rainbow Brite, lol)

Oh- and Sweetberry has always been one of my all time favorites.  I wish we had a G4 version!
