The Pony Project
Hasbro Toys and Thunderdog Studios joined forces to present The Pony Project at Milk Gallery in NYC in 2005. The Pony Project featured 18" renditions of Hasbro's beloved My Little Pony toy customized by nearly 50 top female artists and designers. Fifty percent of the proceeds from the sale of the Pony art pieces plus additional merchandise was donated to the Association of Hole in the Wall Camps which is dedicated to helping children with serious illnesses and life-threatening conditions.
In 2008 to celebrate the 25th Anniversary of My Little Pony, Hasbro, with Thunderdog Studios presented the My Little Pony Project: 25 Ponies for 25 Years gallery exhibition at the Chelsea Art Museum in New York City (September 18th / one-night-only) featuring diverse customs from designers. The twenty-five 18" My Little Pony-customs will be auctioned off by CharityFolks.com in support of Give Kids The World Village (a nonprofit organization that provides week-long vacations to Central Florida to children with life-threatening illnesses and their families).
Hasbro's MY LITTLE PONY Project returns in 2012 with a year-long global celebration of MY LITTLE PONY: Friendship Is Magic, a charitable art exhibition inspired by MY LITTLE PONY. 2012 marks the first world tour of the MY LITTLE PONY Project, engaging talents in Los Angeles, New York, and Tokyo, Japan.
