|Nirvana Ponies by Country|
Mexican ponies are those that were both made and sold in Mexico. Initially the ponies were licensed to/made by a company called Lily Ledy, such ponies have clear hoof marks that say "Lily Ledy" and "Made in Mexico". This company made only the first six ponies, but then their factory burnt down and Hasbro then gave the license to a company called Auriken (who also made versions of the first six).
- Lily Ledy versions of the first six are more rare than Auriken ones.
- Auriken ponies have no marks on their hooves, their hooves are either completely flat or concave.
- Because of the different factories the first six ponies made in Mexico are sometimes not even referred to as Mexican, but in reference to their production company. Ie "Lily Ledy Minty" or "Auriken FF Butterscotch" (aka "Mexican FF Butterscotch"), whereas later ones are just "Mexican Firefly". Any non- first six Mexican pony is also an Auriken pony, so calling it "Mexican" is enough.
The variations in printing, type of plastic used, and slight mold variations help identify the completely unmarked Auriken ponies. (Not to mention the place that you found that pony is a good hint, but with eBay these days a pony's true origin can be tricky.)
