Hasbro initially hired Faust to create a pitch bible for the show, allowing her to get additional help with conceptualization. Faust said she was “extremely skeptical” about taking the job at first because she had always found shows based on girls’ toys to be boring and unrelatable. She was disappointed that what she thought of the toys at the time was nothing like the animated shows, in which the characters, according to her, “had endless tea parties, giggled over nothing and defeated villains by either sharing with them or crying”. With the chance to work on My Little Pony, one of her favorite childhood toys, she hoped to prove that “cartoons for girls don’t have to be a puddle of smooshy, cutesy-wootsy, goody-two-shoeness”. To do this, she incorporated many elements into the show that subverted stereotypes of girls, such as diverse personalities, character flaws and personality disorders, the message that friends can be different and can get into arguments but still be friends, and the idea that girls should not be limited by what others say they can or can not do. Elements of the characters’ personalities and the show’s settings were based on her own childhood imagination of the ponies’ adventures, in part inspired by the animated shows that her brothers would watch while growing up, such as Transformers and G. I. Joe. Faust still aimed for the characters to be “relatable” characters, using stereotypical “icons of girliness” to broaden the appeal of the characters for the young female audience.

Coloring pages can also be a good way to make money if you are free landscape artist. If you can reproduce any character from cartoons or fairy tales, you can draw sketches of them and sell them, either online, either to a library store that can sell them and give you a part of the profit. You can also say that some people use the sketches as they are, black and white, without coloring them. The printable ones can also be used to make stickers and such. One disadvantage of printable pages in general is that they need paper, and as we know paper is made out of trees, and the planet needs trees to survive, but a good thing is that paper can also be recycled. In the near future, we'll probably see more and more online coloring pages, but the feeling won't be the same though.
Why Children's Coloring Pages are Important – Today's children still love coloring just as much as the Old People used to when they were children. In addition to this fact, it's now known that coloring is a wondrous pre-reading activity which helps children develop the hand-eye coordination they'll need for learning how to write.
