In 1983, the first baby My Little Pony was released through a special mail order offer. The pony's name was Ember, and some mail order forms referred to her as "My Beautiful Baby Pony."
Other baby ponies appeared in stores in Year 3 and were smaller, baby versions of ponies already released. They usually came with lots of baby accessories, including baby necklaces, bear brushes, bibs, blankets, bottles, cribs, duck pull toys, playpens, rattles, rockers, and stacking toys.
Due to their popularity, baby ponies continued to be released each year and inspired lines of their very own without adult mothers. The ponies varied in size depending on the line.
