My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic
While Hasbro was unsuccessful at marketing My Little Pony for girls only, Lauren Faust was hired by Hasbro for her help with the generation 4 of My Little Pony. Lauren says that My Little Pony was one of her favorite childhood toys. However according to her imagination, she is disappointed with the characters girly stereotypes she has seen. After Lauren’s hard work of developing and writing, the My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic series became a successful hit. Not only did it gain many young fans in the target age group, but it also gained a strange and (even referred to as) a cult-like following known as Bronies. Bronies are male fans of the show My Little Pony. Older girl bronies tend to be referred to as Pegasisters.
