Question about Hasbro Fur Real Friends Smores Pony

4 Answers

Furreal pony, Butterscotch, Head floppy/leans left

Assembled this a few years back. Presently all function/motions work and all assembly instructions ok. However the head generally flops loose left to right. When motions stop head rotates (floppy) to left.
Seems like the torsion springs are doing nothing though I can't find where may "hook up" differently or anything that looks broken

    Smores Pony: Worked fine for only a few hours, then head became stuck turned toward the left. Sounds like the a motor is activating but the head will not rotate back to the right. Unzipped neck but nothing appears broken and all connections appear to be OK.

    Same problem here. Butterscotch worked fine when Santa left her but yesterday her head began flopping to the left. We got her off Craig's list so we don't have a manual.

There is a smaller "u" shaped spring in the middle of the neck mechanism that I found one side was snapped off. Looks normal, but it's broken. I made one out of a coat hanger for temporary purposes and it works like new! I will order one from Hasbro. Hope this helps!

I purchased a used Furreal pony. The head seemed to flop a lot to the left and had a hard time turning the head/neck more to the right or looking straight ahead. I opened up the neck and found everything looked to be in order but did discover that the wires that connect to the body were pulled tight. I pulled the wires so there would be more slack in the neck. Now the pony's neck & head seem to be working normal. Check and make sure there wires in the neck are not pulled tight, this may be an easy fix for you.

If neither of the abouve work, I just padded the inside of the neck with a couple of towels; it absorbs the shock of moving side to side that the broken part use to catch. Works like new!

Head hangs loosely when power is off or horse is not actively engaged by sensor activation.

Butterscotch pony head not working


First, calling poor Grace at Hasbro will provide fruitless. Hasbro does not make any parts for the full size FurReal Ponies, they have nothing in stock and cannot help you. I, however, can. I am going to post a link to a distressing site that turns the normal FurReal Pony into a fire breathing demon. However, in the process, you can see the diagram of the skeleton of the pony and head. You can search for other links but this is pretty comprehensive. Just don't open when kids are around.

How do I reassemble the head of the FurReal Pony?


The Pony Care Guide refers to an "Assembly Video" on the FurRealFriends.com site. I couldn't find it and even went through a gazillion videos on YouTube. Contact Hasbro directly through this link to see if they can send you a link to the Assembly Video:

Where can i get replacement parts for butterscotch? bought at sam's 3 years ago Kids now really into horses and of course our pony needs a few things. battery pack, tail, brush, and carrot any help?


I have had similar problems with toys myself. Seems as if when I am sure that my boys are done with a toy and it is long forgotten- it resurfaces needing some tlc... Here is a link to get the battery pack and cover. I would also suggest checking auction sites, as I have been able to find elusive little plastic parts of helicopters there too :-) Best of luck, and looking at Butterscotch; I would love her too!

My butterscotch pony's head doesn't look to its right, only left, won't go into ride mode, and I pressed the button on the zipper to release it so I could take off the head cover but it won't release.


We have the same problem only we were able to remove the zipper (with screwdriver and cursing). Still cannot get it to turn its head other way and consistently go into ride mode. Did you find anything to help?
