Ponyville to G4 accessories
Due to the size of G4 ponies, the molds for many accessories from G3/G3.5 Ponyville as well as ones from the G3.5 mermaid ponies have been able to be reused.

The treasure chest from two mermaid sets was reused for the Canterlot Castle.
The full set was released once in G3, with the tea cart also being included with a DVD for The World's Biggest Tea Party. In G4, most of the set was released with one playset, and at least two parts were included in another.
