Long post to follow!
A very exciting release for toy fans: the Mini Pony Collectors Guide!
MY LITTLE PONY fans of all ages will go head over hooves for this complete collector’s guide to all the two-inch-tall mini ponies that come in either blind bags or packaged sets. Full-color, actual-size photos of each mini pony, and its accompanying trading card outline each wave and set, including all the secret chase figures.
The book will be blister packed with an exclusive Tealove figure, which the catalogue boasts has never before released in the U.S. This is true! Tealove was originally a part of the second wave of blind bag ponies, which never made it state-side.
Mini Pony Collectors Guide will cost $19.00 ($21.00 CAN). It will also be available as an eBook.

Rainbow Dash and the Daring Do Double Dare by G. M. Berrow ($5.99. $6.50 CAN. Also available as an eBook). This is the third instalment in a series of My Little Pony chapter books for kids ages 8 - 12, preceded by Twilight Sparkle and the Crystal Heart Spell and Pinkie Pie and the Rockin' Pony Palooza.
Rainbow Dash has always been a huge fan of the Daring Do series, but when the newest book comes out, it’s Daring Do madness! The pony wants to prove she can be just a brave and “daring” as her hero. Before she knows it, she becomes “Daring Dash.” and is doing all sorts of crazy things—tightrope walking (no wings!), hot chili pepper eating, and even sneaking inside a spooky old barn. But when Rainbow Dash offers to help Zecora by entering a scary, haunted forest alone, her friends worry she’s jumping into too much danger. Just how daring should one pony be?
