    Packaging Factory Error: Not only is there no sticker on the front,
    but the front panel on the backpack was put on backwards.

    Other interesting information:
    in 2007, Cutie Cascade pony Morning Glory was named "Sweet Summertime" on some internationally released boxes.​


    Anything else I forgot about....?


    Don't forget to rate this pony in the poll too!

    And to get you prepared for upcoming ponies of the day, this is who's next:

    If you are the first person to post information (besides me), you can make a request for the next "Pony of the Day"!
    (though let's avoid Pinkie Pie for a while shall we? She might need an entire week devoted to her :))

    Thanks to everyone that contributes... with your help, this will be a very full and resourceful library for everyone.

    I don't have any new info, but I'd like to say that I really liked the beach ball bag she came with. That made her super cute!

    hmm.. I'm honestly not sure if I have her or not :p She doesn't stand out to me. Which probably means that I do not.

    Okay to be honest, I don't really like this pony. I think I have at least 2 of her.
    I think of all the G3 poses, this is my very least favorite.

    I did a search for threads relating to Sweet Summertime, and there was one from 2005 and someone selling:

    MIB Sweet Summertime & Sparkleworks II Promo pack $15

    Was there a promo pack that came with these packaged together or did I read this wrong? If so, does anyone have pics?

    Just found this gal upstairs while I was looking for something entirely different. I have the bag with the backward panel and no sticker.

    Release year: 2004, I believe. That's the copyright date on the back of the package.

    Name: The set's name is Seaside Surprise with Sweet Summertime.

    Exclusive info: I want to say that she was a TRU exclusive, but there's no sticker to indicate it and I don't remember.

    UPC: 6 53569 03366 0.

    Pony Points: Six. It's the Frilly Frocks points design.

    Accessory info: She also comes with a yellow towel that is not pictured in the original post.

    Backcard story (actually on a card attached to the bag):
    SWEET SUMMERTIME got up extra-early today so she could be the first one at the beach. What should she do first, swim? Look for starfish? Take a walk along the shore? There's so much to do, it's hard to choose!

    Other Merchandise: Sweet Summertime is also featured along with the other three seasonal ponies in a coloring book that came with a few crayons. EDIT: Here's a link to the book: Amazon.com: My Little Pony: Coloring Fun All Year Long (9780060549473): Kate Egan, Gayle Middleton: Books

    halicabi, you were the first to post info on Sweet Summertime so you get to pick again for the next pony of the day on 8/14/09...

    skig, thanks for all those great pony details! When I get a bit more time, I'll update the first post with all the goodies ;)

    I really don't remember there being a promo pack with this set. Perhaps the seller was saying the promo pack was with Sparkleworks II.



    My opinion of this pony? Mine is hidden in a storage bin somewhere. *oops* Shows you how much "I" love her!! LOL! I bought her new when she was on store shelves and have since put her away. I'm currently going through my collections and organizing and upgrading, so she will make an appearance one of these days soon. :D I did absolutely LOVE the castle accessory with the little crab popping out. I giggled when I first discovered that one.

    I have her, but I really don't enjoy her. I probably would have if I didn't get her all by herself. :/

    Story (from official UK site)

    .
    There is nothing that Sweet Summertime likes more than lazing around in the sun and playing outdoors. At the end of the day you will find Sweet Summertime watching the sunset with her friends.

    She was also one of the Pony's from the MLP Memory Game. Sorry for the condition, but these are my daughter's, and there are more cards missing.

    I must admit I like the crab more than the pony!
