The daughter of adult pony Applejack, she sports green eyes and sits in the Ember Pose. When originally released, Baby Applejack came with a host of accessories, including a white crib, a white bib, a stacking toy, a yellow bear-shaped brush, a baby bottle, a pack of Pony Panties, and a sticker.

An Earth Pony released between 1984 and 1985, this pony was popular in the US and the UK.
