My Little Pony Age Reference by 22bubble-eyes22 My Little Pony Age Reference by 22bubble-eyes22
(Please note that these are for my blog and do not reflect the opinion of the MLP team nor the fandom community as a whole. See Tumblr post here: askgargle.tumblr.com/post/6203…

Obviously it’s hard to line pony age up with human age. They start speaking and thinking intelligently really early! But we’re analyzing a cartoon, so everyone is both really smart and really not at the same time X)

Feel free to use these as bases or something, just pass on some cred!

Image Cred: MLP Vector Club mlp-vectorclub.deviantart.com/ [1] mlpfanart.wikia.com/wiki/File:… [2] austiniousi.deviantart.com/art… [3] www.deviantart.com/art/Filly-F… [4] jennieoo.deviantart.com/art/Ap… [5] mlp-vectorclub.deviantart.com/… [7] firestorm-can.deviantart.com/a… [8] mlp-vectorclub.deviantart.com/…

Sources: Digibrony’s take (Awesome stuff) www.youtube.com/watch?v=o_rcYk… , Lauren Faust’s assumptions fyre-flye.deviantart.com/journ… , Interesting forum thread scifi.stackexchange.com/questi… , JDW-Jeno’s report scifi.stackexchange.com/questi…

Most of these I completely waved off when it came to numeric ages. I still feel like the characters live about as long as a human, but they also need more time to grow up. This “fully grown at two” thing of Lauren Faust’s (may her word be considered sacred) doesn’t jive with the Cake Twins, Pipsqueak, and Fluttershy to me. Still, this is just for this blog and may have no grounds in canon.

There should be a support group for people who over-analyze children’s cartoons- oh wait, that’s Bronydom isn’t it?

You're welcome!
Just a head's up that recently age 5 was made to be a younger age so the kid's ages might be a little off.

I do love this guide, the headcanons are neat and they do make sense!
Good choice in the vectors, too.
