Each pony came with a hair ribbon and comb just like the originals. Their boxes featured the classic My Little Pony logo and artwork and showed what other ponies are available. They also came with a fold-out poster featuring classic artwork.
The ponies in the Original 1983 Collection include Blossom, Blue Belle, Butterscotch, Cotton Candy, Minty, and Snuzzle. Their hair and body colors are slightly darker than the original G1 versions. They also have concave feet like the Year 2 ponies rather than the flat feet of the Year 1 line.
The back of the box says: My Little Pony is a pretty pony with long, shiny hair. She likes you to comb her hair so it stays silky and soft. You can braid her hair and tie it in a ribbon too!
