1987 saw the final outing of the flocked wonders known as the So Soft Ponies. As with earlier sets, there was no official release of these characters in the UK, and even in the North American release, they tend to be among the more difficult to find ponies in good condition (especially Crumpet.)
Each featured one of the new poses for the year, with the exception of Hippety Hop (a carryover from the 1986 set). They all also had a new style of flocking - shorter and closer to the body, but much worse at picking up dust! - and a different backcard, featuring just the ponies in this set. This time, Hippety Hop was correctly portrayed as a pegasus.
The set only included one unicorn - Bangles - with two pegasus ponies and three earthlings.
