"Tootsie." Tootsie was searching for lollipops when she discovered a 4-leaf clover. "Hold me up to the sun and make a wish," the clover urged. "I wish for my own pollipop latch - I mean lollipop patch," Tootsie laughed, correcting her silly words. The clover flew into the meadow, followed by beams of sunlight singing a sweet melody. Each time they sang a verse, a new flavor of lollipops popped up. "When you accidentally say a silly sentence, lollipops will grow in your garden. Your sweet tooth will remind you to pick them," the clover explained. Tootsie could hardly wait to tell her friends about her wish come true.

"Cherries Jubilee." It was the day of the big Pony Parade and Cherries Jubilee was tying the last cherry blossoms to her float. "I hope this string holds the blossoms in place," she thought to herself. She had worked very hard picking hundreds of cherry blossoms and stringing them together to form a beautiful rainbow. "Here comes Cherries' float," Tootsie shouted from the stands. As the float passed before the judges, the string suddenly broke. A shower of colorful petals fell all over Ponyland. It was such a magnificent sight that Majesty officially named it The Cherry Blossom Parade and crowned Cherries Jubilee the queen of the parade.

"Lickety-Split." The ponies were enjoying Majesty's birthday party in the Dream Castle garden when Lickety-Split announced she had a special surprise. As they sang Happy Birthday, Lickety kicked her heels twice and the mountains around the castle turned into giant scoops of vanilla, chocolate and strawberry ice cream. Two smiling clouds poured hot fudge and whipped cream over the mountains while Cherries Jubilee flew up each creamy mountain and topped it with a bright red cherry. "This is the best birthday surprise I've ever had," Majesty said handing Lickety-Split a heaping dish of chocolate ice cream.

"Posey." Posey was busily planting new rows of tulips in her garden when she spotted a fierce grey raincloud overhead. "The rain will wash away my newly planted tulip bulbs and ruin my garden." she sighed. Parasol, racing through the clouds in search of a rainbow, heard her plea. "Don't worry Posey." Parasol Shouted. I'll protect your tulips." Parasol jumped into the raincloud. She tossed her rainbow mane and tail and dozen of pretty parasols fell from the clouds to cover her tulip beds. "Thank you, Parasol" Posey said handing her friend a bouquet of her finest tulips.

"Surprise." Surprise was traveling through the clouds and saw what looked like a rainbow far off in the distance. As she flew closer, she realized it was a runaway hot-air balloon flying frantically out-of-control. "Are you lost?" Surprise shouted to the giant balloon. Suddenly a head poked over the top of the basket. "Please take me home," pleaded Spike, Majesty's little pet dragon. Surprise gently guided the balloon all the way back to Dream Castle. Majesty was delighted to see her friend Spike and gave Surprise a royal "thank you!"

"Heart Throb." Heart Throb was finishing the lace booties for the Baby Ponies when she started designing the beautiful valentine card. "I'll give it to my favorite friend in pony land," she said to herself. Heart Throb gathered some leftover lace from the booties, flowers from Posey's garden and heart-shaped pebbles she found near the waterfall. She placed a poem she had written directly in the center of a heart-shaped lace doily. Pasting it all together, Heart Throb signed the valentine and proudly presented it to the love birds that live under the waterfall.

"Powder." Snow was gently falling from the clouds and Powder was in a mischief-making mood. "I've played a clever trick on Majesty!" Powder thought to herself. "Let's go play in the Dream Castle," she called to Majesty as they raced toward the castle far in the distance. When they got closer, Majesty exclaimed, "My Castle is covered with white fluffy snow!" Powder giggled. "That's not the Dream Castle," Powder explained. "It's an ice castle I made from the snow!" Majesty laughed at Powder's surprise!

"Sparkler." Sparkler stood out in the sun, admiring her collection. "It's so beautifully shiny," she remarked as she rearranged her glitter cards, gold coins and aluminum foil pieces. Sparkler loves shiny, sparkling objects. When the moon is full, she follows the brightest star in search of glittering trinkets. On the night of the last full moon, Sparkler found a glowing diamond. "This will be perfect for Majesty's crown," she thought. But Majesty urged Sparkler to keep the jewel because someday she might have a crown of her own!

"Gusty." Way up in the trees, the leaves had put on their autumn coats and Gusty was thrilled. "I love fall colors - orange, red and yellow!" Dancing happily. Gusty whirled through the colorful treetops. Suddenly a wild wind whistled through the sky and the leaves were yanked from their trees. They fluttered down and lay lifeless on the ground. "Back up there! Go back up!" Taking a deep breath, Gusty puckered her lips and blew on the leaves. At Gusty's magical command, the leaves happily swirled around and returned to their home.

"Skyflier." Skyflier had been working on her beautiful kite for weeks. "Red, white and blue... yellow, green and purple, too," she sang to herself as she added the finishing touches. Tossing it in the air, she ran along the tops of the clouds trying to fly it. Heart Throb, the pegasus, carried it high in the sky. Crash! Down it came. Skyflier was so disappointed. Bow Tie, watching from the meadow, offered a suggestion. "Ribbons! Give it a tail with ribbons!" Bow Tie tied on some of her prettiest silky ribbons and the kite quickly rose into the sky. "Thank you, Bow Tie!" Skyflier called.

"Tickle." The clock struck midnight and the baby ponies were still awake! "They've been tossing and turning all night," Mother Firefly fretted to her pegasus friend Tickle. "What can we do to get them to sleep?"
Tickle knew exactly what to do. While Firefly told the babies a bedtime story, she flew into the clouds, her rainbow mane trailing behind her. Hidden beneath a silver cloud was Tickle's pillowcase full of the beautiful, soft feathers.
She stuffed the feathers into a large comforter and made a fluffy feather bed for the baby ponies. They fell asleep immediately.
They were still asleep at breakfast time. Tickle gently brushed a long feather under each baby's nose. The baby ponies woke, feeling very frisky. Suddenly, feathers were flying everywhere as the baby ponies jumped up and down on their feather bed! Tickle and Firefly laughed and joined the baby ponies in a playful pillow fight.

"Starflower." One night, while sleeping in the clouds, Starflower had a wonderful dream. She dreamt she was standing on the edge of a rainbow with magnificent fireworks flying out in all directions. Red, green, blue and yellow bursts fell to the ground in beautiful patterns.
When she woke, Starflower blinked her eyes three times and made a magical wish. "I wish that my dream would come true," she said aloud.
She searched for the rainbow and fireworks all day, but couldn't find them. By nightfall, Starflower decided to go to the waterfall. She was amazed at what she was in the pool! "It's really happening!" she shouted with delight.
There in the pool was the reflection of the waterfall, glowing with rainbow colors. Each falling drop of water turned into expanding rings of colorful circles. Red, green, blue and yellow patterns were everywhere! "What a beautiful show," she said contentedly.

"Confetti." Confetti liked to sit by the Waterfall and design beautiful toys from colored paper and streamers. One sunny afternoon, while cutting out paper dolls, a gentle breeze blew one of the dolls into the trickling stream of the Waterfall. Confetti chased after it, but couldn't find it anywhere in the crystal waters.
Suddenly, the rainbow appeared above the Waterfall. The paper doll peeked through the colorful arch, laughing as she came to life. Gliding down the rainbow like a slide, the paper doll landed right onto Confetti's back. "Let's ride through the clouds!" the doll exclaimed. Confetti clapped her hoofs together and off they went, with the rainbow leading the way.
Confetti took her friend for magical ride through ponyland. During the ride, the paper doll combed Confetti's rainbow mane and tail into hundreds of tiny braids that looked like rows of pastel ribbons waving in the clouds.

"Flutterbye." It was daybreak on a beautiful spring morning. Dawn raised her head while the sun rose over the hill. The honeybees in the garden buzzed happily from flower to flower, collecting nectar to make honey in their hive.
A magical pegasus, with rainbow-colored hair, hovered over the beatiful flower garden. The bees stopped to stare at her. "She looks just like a rare rainbow butterfly!" one bee whispered to another.
The pegasus gracefully flew down and said to the bees, "Your sweet smell so flowers! I mean... your flowers smell so sweet! May I pick some to take back with me?" (When the pegasus gets excited, she gets her "mix" all "talked" up.)
The bees buzzed excitedly. "What's your name?" they asked. "Butterfly... no, no it's Flutterbye!" the pegasus answered, giggling at her mistake. The bees thought that Flutterbye was beautiful and very funny, so they gave her a huge bouquet of flowers and a large pot of their sweetest honey.

"Trickles." Trickles was filling her magic watering can at the Waterfall when she saw Posey in her garden. "Hmm, I think I'll play a trick on Posey", she thought. "Let me help you water your flowers," Trickles offered. She pranced into the garden and swung the can around her head, spraying water in every direction. Suddenly, there were tulips everywhere! Red, blue, purple, green and orange ones, even some shiny polka dots and big, bright stripes.
"Now, you really have a magic garden," Trickles laughed. Posey giggled as she placed a purple polka dot tulip behind Trickles' ear.

"Pinwheel." Pinwheel was taking the baby ponies for an afternoon stroll when a sudden gust of wind blew Baby Firefly's bonnet high into the sky. The baby ponies giggled as the bonnet twirled around like a top, then fluttered to the ground. "The west wind is playing a game with us," Pinwheel explained. "Now it's our turn."
First, Pinwheel arranged hundreds of smooth, shiny pebbles in a large circle on the ground. With a blink of her eyes and a shake of her rainbow mane, Pinwheel's unicorn magic turned the stones into a brightly colored, spinning ferris wheel. "Hop on," Pinwheel said to the baby ponies, helping them into their seats.
As the west wind puffed harder and harder, the ferris wheel spun faster and faster.
"What a wonderful ride," the baby ponies exclaimed as the ferris wheel stopped. Pinwheel handed each baby pony a special pinwheel toy with her name on it as they jumped off the ride. What a wonderful afternoon it was, playing with the wind!

"Splasher." Every Tuesday, all of the baby sea ponies attended their nursery swimming school. One day, Splasher was practicing her baby backstroke before class started.
"Stroke, stroke, stroke, and breathe," she counted softly to herself. Her turtle float bobbed up and down with her as the waves rose and fell.
Just then a giant wave tossed her high into the air. When she came back down her tail smacked the water with a loud SLAP... and splashed Tiny Bubbles right in the face! That splash of water had soooo much sunshine and salt in it, that Tiny Bubbles' hair dried into many, many curls and ringlets.
Splasher thought Tiny Bubbles' hair was so pretty that she gave her a collection of colorful sea shells to wear as barrettes in her curls.
