*For immediate release

Linden Lab today announced that officially licensed MY LITTLE PONY sets are now available in Blocksworld , the popular free 3D build-and-play system for the iPad.  With these sets, Blocksworld players will be able to create versions of the MY LITTLE PONY characters RAINBOW DASH, PINKIE PIE, TWILIGHT SPARKLE, FLUTTERSHY, APPLEJACK, RARITY, and SPIKE THE DRAGON.  The new sets are the result of a licensing relationship with Hasbro, Inc., through which Linden Lab also recently added TRANSFORMERS characters to Blocksworld.

In addition to the MY LITTLE PONY and TRANSFORMERS character sets, Blocksworld’s in-app Shop features a broad range of original building sets, covering diverse themes – from outer space adventure, to medieval fantasy, cities, and much more. New sets are added weekly, so there’s always something new for players to enjoy.
