Like the original G1 ponies, the 35th Anniversary ponies came with a comb and hair ribbon. They also included a poster featuring classic My Little Pony artwork. The designs on their boxes had the classic My Little Pony logo and artwork and had a "35th Anniversary" emblem on the front.
A 35th Anniversary version of the Pretty Parlor soon followed, as well as a second line of ponies called the Rainbow Collection. These ponies were scented and included Moonstone, Parasol, Skydancer, Starshine, Sunlight, and Windy. The Rainbow Collection ponies came with a hair ribbon, comb or brush, and puffy sticker.
More ponies were added to the Rainbow Collection when the second set of Rainbow Ponies was reissued. This line included Confetti, Flutterbye, Pinwheel, Starflower, Tickle, and Trickles. The boxes in this line do not have the "35th Anniversary" emblem.
The Earth Ponies line includes reissues of Applejack, Bow Tie, Bubbles, and Seashell.
Some of the classic reissue ponies have hair and body colors that are slightly darker than the original releases, but not as dark as the 25th Anniversary versions released in 2008. They also have concave feet like the Year 2 ponies rather than the flat feet of the Year 1 line.
