My daughter is a huge fan of My Little Pony. When she found out that Build-A-Bear Workshop would be carrying two characters from her favorite pony franchise, she was much excited. For the past three years, I’ve had the opportunity to review many Build-A-Bear Workshop friends, so of course, I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to review Rainbow Dash from the new My Little Pony Collection.
My Little Pony’s Rainbow Dash and Pinkie Pie ($24 each) both arrive in Build-A-Bear Workshop stores and online on April 1st. They are the first make-your-own My Little Pony plush toys and are a great compliment to the already impressive and expansive Build-A-Bear Workshop collection of characters.
My Little Pony Rainbow Dash
My Little Pony Pinkie Pie
Rainbow Dash comes with a beautiful mane of rainbow colored hair that can be styled and braided and has a removable cape that can be purchased separately for $13.50. For kids who love to enjoy imaginative play, these My Little Pony plush friends from Build-A-Bear Workshop will be a hit.
In many North American Build-A-Bear Workshop stores, a celebration of the new My Little Pony duo will be commending April 1st through April 7th. Guests are encouraged to dress up in their favorite My Little Pony fashions and can take pony personality quizzes. While making a My Little Pony friend, your child will also recite the “pony promise” and learn how to style their Rainbow Dash or Pinkie Pie’s hair with a special hair care brochure.
Other personal touches include:
- My Little Pony skirt outfit ($12.50)
- Knight costime ($15.00)
- My Little Pony Theme song ($6) which can be added to any stuffed friend
- Hair extensions ($4.00)
- Rainbow skates ($6.00)
My daughter received her Rainbow Dash last week and hasn’t stopped playing with it. She also wants Pinkie Pie, which I’m sure will be galloping into her room very soon.
As a Build-A-Bear Workshop friend, I also have the opportunity to offer one of my readers a gift card to the store that they can use to help their favorite little on make a furry buddy of their own. It can be used online or in stores to create a My Little Pony plush, or any other friend they choose!

Build A Bear was there when I needed them! My family was going through a tough time and I brought my kids there to try to give them something nice. My son got a puppy and dressed him up with all kinds of thing, but my daughter chose to go to the other store and build a friend doll. I am so glad they have places like this so that kids can have a companion that represents them and their interests! Go Build A Bear!
I like you both on Facebook as Mary Happymommy. I love the fact that it’s such an interactive experience for kids to customize their own stuffed animal.

The reason i love build a bear is because thy have helped me after all of the surgeries i have had. I had a back surgery at 12 due to scoliosis and recovering was NOT easy! But after my surgery i recieved a few build a bears and i love them all! After my mouth surgery In 2011 i got the Yorkie and she was one of my favorites! Also build a bear has been with me all 18 years of my life. For my 18th birhday last week i went to build a bear to make the light up bear. I have never loved something as much as build a bear as i have been growing up. When i heard about My little pony coming to build a bear, i thought i was a dream come true as a life long build a bear fan. I hope to share my joys of build a bear to my children when i have some!
I like both Build A Bear & The Cubicle Chick on Facebook. For me I love that Build A Bear is fun for all ages! I have made several various Build A Bear characters for friends and family for special occasions and everyone always loves them! I love being able to put a heart in and personalizing each one. I love the new My Little Pony Rainbow Dash – too cute!

I love the experience of creating your new friend! My kids always have so much fun and it makes the plush toys so much more special…

What I love most about Build a Bear is the smile it puts on my daughter’s face. She lights up whenever we go there. Now that they are doing my little pony toys is a plus! Her birthday party is the day before this raffle ends. Receiving this pony would be the highlight of her 4th birthday!

Hope I can win Rainbow Dasher for my son, who does not believe in girl shows or boy shows. He says My Little Pony is for everyone and it teaches you how to be nice to ponies.

I Like you both on FB(Kelly D Saver) and my favorite part about Build a bear is when my children get to choose a heart to put in their bear. I love watching their faces as the heart is placed inside and the bear is filled with fluff. They are always so happy.

T.h. Ransom says
I like Build a Bear because it allows my kids to personalize their own stuffed animal, name and all. It makes a great keepsake for the parents and a lasting friend to the kids.
Erin Brooks says
I liked Both TCC and BAB on FB!
I am very fond of BAB I go there often with my daughter and it’s as much for her as it is me. I have a very special Leopard BAB that comforts me ever I need it. BAB lets you get more connected with your stuffed animals and letting them know from your heart, from the start when you put their heart in how much you’ll love them!
