The Princess Ponies first appeared in the My Little Pony line in Year 5, with a second set released in Year 6. Instead of the painted-on symbols, each Princess Pony had a raised medallion with a jewel inside. The ponies also had tinsel in their hair.
The first set of Princess Ponies came with Bushwoolie characters, a glitter star hair pick, damsel hats with ribbon, and a glitter wand.
The second release of Princess Ponies didn't come with Bushwoolies or damsel hats. They came with star picks, wands, and a crown-shaped barrette. They also had short tufts of tinsel hair on top of their heads.
