THE SATIN SLIPPER SWEET SHOPPE
with SCOOPS: White earth pony with purple mane and tail, pink and purple ice cream sundaes symbol spread across back and haunches, repeated on cheek.
This playset was also released in 1987, but, unlike the Crimp and Curl Hair Salon, the Satin Slipper Sweet Shoppe was never released in the United Kingdom. Consequently, nor was it's hostess, Scoops, who played a key, if small role in the cartoon episode "Ice Cream Wars." Please note that, though Molly is shown in the above US insert photograph, she was not sold with the set. As the name implies, the sweet shoppe was in the shape of a white slipper, opening out to reveal the counter within.
The Shoppe had many accessories that any decent Ice Cream Parlour may need - tables, chairs (oddly shaped considering the species of clientele!), ice cream sodas, a specials board and even a hat and apron for Scoops herself. Despite the fact she was not sold in the UK, Scoops is still fairly easy to pick up on the second hand market (as is generally the rule with playset ponies).
