I hafta go with the gorgeous and tropical Sunbrights. Though the Berrytowns and Sweet Celebrations are beautiful too.

My favorite Dad is Sweet Celebrations
Favorite Mom is a tie between Sunbright and Berrytown
Favorite Baby is Sunbright.

Sunbright! I love ocean-themed ponies. :) Someday, they will be mine... X3

I’m also very fond of the Apple Delight family, though. I’ve found that I actually like them better with a bit of yellowing, as opposed to pristine white, lol. It makes them look kind of softer and earthier, IMO.

As the whole family I love the Apple Delight family.

Daddy Celebrations is a stunning looking pony but I'm not so keen on the rest of his 'official' family. Mine has a whole bunch of different 'relatives' with him here.

My favourite family is the Bright Bouquets because they have such a nice colour scheme, but my favourite individual family member is Mommy Apple Delight. Idk exactly why, maybe it's the dual colours or her aesthetic.

For the family friends, it has to be the Sunbrights. They're beach themed (my favorite pony theme) and they have amazing bright color schemes.

As for the loving families, it has to be the sweet celebrations family. They're party themed (my second favorite pony theme) and they're green. Also they have a baby boy.

Favorite Family Friends set, and favorite family set overall, are the Berrytowns. Those specific hair colors are really nice with their white bodies. I do very much want all three of these families though because I adore their gradient hair. :lovey:

Favorite Loving Family set... probably Bright Bouquets.

I think mommy Apple delight is pretty, but its probably because I prefer her pose.  I voted Sweet Celebration family because Daddy Celebrations is very handsome.  I wish the boy's in the family sets had clydesdale feet like Ribbs, Leaper and the rest though.

It's the Sunbrights for me as well.

As a kid when the loving families came out I really liked the Apple Delights. I only ever had enough pocket money for a baby pony (I wasn't patient enough to save more than a few weeks xD) but I could never find baby brother or sister AD (over here the ponies were all sold individually as well as in the sets of 3 the US had). So I had baby sister sweet celebrations and baby brother bright bouquet instead. Ironically, the exclusives xD.

In terms of individual loving family ponies, my favourite is baby sister sweet celebrations, but that's not the family overall. And while I love Daddy SC, not so keen on Mother or baby boy. I don't like that brother pose much.

So then later on the Sunbrights, Berrytowns and Meadowsweets came along. Still couldn't afford to buy adults, so had all the babies instead. Sunbright was always my favourite of these because of the colour scheme and the pose.

Now, I really like Daddy Berrytown as well. I like the colouring on the Berrytowns in general. But the Sunbrights still win. And overall as a family, I like all the ponies in the Sunbright set. So my vote goes with them.

It's also my opinion that Daddy Berrytown and Daddy Sunbright are the two hardest to find ponies that were sold in the UK. That doesn't mean they're the rarest in all of Europe, but they are the only 2 regional exclusive ponies available in stores here that I had to trade for. Every single other Uk/European pony I have found here at least once, but never either of those two.

Which sucks, quite frankly.

I voted for the berrytown family because of their cute hair.

I really wanted the Apple Delight family as a child but for some reason I thought they were a family of unicorns instead of Earth ponies.

Looking at the all of the familes now I think the Sunbright family is my favorite. :) I think the Berrytowns were in an episode of My Little Pony Tales.

I am pretty sure all three of the later families are in MLP tales. Bright Eyes stays with the Sunbrights on a pony exchange...Teddy is related to the Meadowsweets and takes Sweetheart to their farm? And I remember the Berrytowns moved into the clubhouse and the ponies were trying to get rid of them because they thought them thieves or something...?

It's been a while but I think so. Except all the families had an extra pony character in the show for some reason :/

Hmmm, that was tough, but I went with the Apple Delight family. I love their colours, they're very eye-catching!

I voted Sweet Celebrations but I’m biased as they were in my childhood herd.  Daddy Sweet Celebration is a stunner.

Apple Delights are probably my favourite Loving Family set. For the Family Friends and Family Babies (and yeesh that set really drew the short straw when it comes to names, huh? What a mouthful...).. hmmm.. either Meadowsweet or Berrytown. Berrytowns have the best mane, reminds me of rainbow sherbet ice cream :9

But really, I love all of them. :lovey: I love pony families. I wish the Family Friends weren't so hard to find!

As a kid I called them rainbow families :D. I think it was a way Hasbro could make more money by selling them separately rather than as a family set...*shrug*

I also wish they were easier to find. THere's a total gender bias, as if kids more often got bought mother pony not father pony. I remember, as a kid, seeing the Daddies and the Mummies in the stores. I couldn't afford adult ponies unless it was a special occasion, as they were about £6 at the time each, which for me then was a lot - but there were as many daddies as mummies on sale. Yet you see the Daddies far less for some reason.

Sunbrights got my vote; even though I don't have any of them. Baby with dolphin symbol for the win!

I like the Meadowsweets!
Out of the ponies I'm more likely to have, though, I like the Sweet Celebrations family.

I like the Apple Delight Family best.  They were a Christmas present that I had no idea I was getting.  I also think they're quite pretty.

You're right Taffeta. :) The Berrytowns, Sunbrights and Medowsweets are in MLP tales. It's been a while since I watched Tales also. I think the extra characters were added to give the Tales Ponies a character to interact with that was the same age as they were.

I seem to remember they were also in the comics. Once the 7 characters happened there wasn't a lot of variety in the comics on cast, but I am pretty sure the families appeared at least once each, albeit often drawn wrong.

That symbol. And hair.


 I remember Princess Sparkle also appearing in someone's dream in the comic once but I am not sure any other pony from that line ever made it. The Rockin' Beats did but that's all...

I also always feel baby Sunbright's symbol is a fish, not a dolphin, despite Dolfijn-Baby happening :)

The jumper, the hat, and the symbol all bemuse me rather ;) I mean, what are you wearing, Daddy M? And are you actually Daddy M or his random twin brother who really likes tractors?

Okay now I want to see a custom of Tractor Meadowsweet XD What an odd symbol choice.

Maybe every pony has a secret twin with a symbol that doesn't make sense and they randomly trade places with their more well known twins from time to time. :lol:
