Hasbro's My Little Pony franchise has been popular with a variety of audiences - ranging from preschoolers to adults - since the release of its first toy line in 1981. The first My Little Pony television cartoon aired in 1986, and popularity has continued to increase since the 2010 release of My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic.

The ponies that reside in the magical land of Equestria are brightly colored. Each bears a symbol called a "cutie mark" on its flank. Rainbow Dash is a quirky Pegasus who enjoys aerial acrobatics and is known for her loyalty.
