The Pony Friends were smaller than adult ponies and had a youthful look and expression.
The Year 5 Pony Friends included a giraffe, lion, camel, and zebra. Another set of Pony Friends was released in Year 6, this time with a llama, dinosaur, elephant, and moose.
In Year 7, more non-pony animals called Pretty Pals were introduced. The Pretty Pals were smaller than the Pony Friends and came with coordinating baby ponies. The animals included were a calf, kangaroo, lamb, and panda bear.
