Last Thursday July 30th, Hasbro celebrated Friendship Day in the My Little Pony Universe. A global, pop culture phenomenon, the My Little Pony franchise from Hasbro has remained deeply rooted in the value of friendship since it first launched more than 30 years ago. To commemorate the International Day of Friendship, the brand is celebrating famous friendships with one-of-a-kind My Little Pony figures honoring notable friendships throughout entertainment history. From timeless television personalities to familiar childhood characters, the My Little Pony brand brings fan favorites to life for the first time as ponies, including beloved best friends from Transformers, Sesame Street, I Love Lucy, Clueless and Laverne & Shirley!
In addition to creating the custom My Little Pony figure collection, to honor the importance and magic of friendship Hasbro has teamed up with generationOn, the youth division of Points of Light, on a global service campaign that uses the core cast of characters from the My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic animated series to teach children about helping others. The initiative invites children and their families to celebrate friendship by completing acts of kindness and volunteering in their school, neighborhood, or broader community.
