My Little Pony for the Grand National

Having a flutter on the Grand National at Aintree tomorrow? Wonder how these two new additions to the Build-A-Bear Workshop® would fare?!

The newest arrivals at Build-A-Bear are these gorgeous make-your-own Pinkie Pie and Rainbow Dash, based on the popular My Little Pony brand.

Build-A-Bear My Little Pony

Under license from Hasbro Inc, Pink Pie and Rainbow Dash My Little Pony toys are available at at Build-A-Bear Workshop® stores now, and online at, priced £18 each.

“We know our Guests, from all generations, love the My Little Pony characters and we are thrilled to be teaming up with Hasbro to bring Pinkie Pie and Rainbow Dash to Build-A-Bear Workshop®,” said Maxine Clark, Build-A-Bear Workshop® founder and chief executive bear. “Mums remember this brand from childhood – and now they can share the nostalgia, friendship, and fun with their own kids.”

There is something nostalgic and curiously cute about the 1980s favourite My Little Pony cartoon – perhaps it’s the ridiculousness of a candy-coloured pony with candy-coloured hair?!

Whatever, they are bound to be huge hits for the Build-A-Bear store. What’s not to love about a horse with pink hair, which you can style with it’s very own hairbrush (available in store for just £3!)

And, you can also dress your pony in their signature capes (£10) or a whole host of other fashion, including a skirt outfit, Knight costume, hair extensions, and rainbow skates.

So, if you win on the Grand National, you know where to take the winnings, don’t you?!
