About

Minty display.png
Minty is a tomboyish pony character and toy of the G3 franchise. She was a very clumsy, ditzy pony that liked socks and loves the color green.

Her G3 toy debut came in 2003 as one of the Glitter Celebration ponies, part of the Summer release. 

"Minty" was one of the many pony names from G1 that Hasbro decided to recycle, bringing the name back for G3. She was released many times and was a frequent character in the animated media. Despite this, she didn't make it into the Core 7.

Minty is a mint green pony with light hot pink mane with white streaks. Her eyes are bright pink, and her hoof heart is carnation pink. Her cutie mark displays three round peppermint-flavored mint candies with sea green, carnation pink and white stripes.

“Minty is our green machine. She likes green bubble baths, cucumbers on her pizza, and all kinds of green candy. On her birthday, while we slept, she painted the castle green, of course!” Razzaroo's description of Minty in "A Charming Birthday".

MINTY loves crazy, silly, upside-down days. She's always coming up with new jokes to tell and fun things to do. With MINTY, every day is a dizzy delight! - Minty's backcard story from the back of her toy's box.
