Spike may not get as much in the way of crafts, customs and plushies but he isn't without love in that department! We've got a small selection of Spike crafts after the break for you all.

Looks like we're getting more than just an homage from IDW Publishing to the classic Children's Book Series!
New book listings on Amazon.com have revealed that Random House Publishing will be making not one, but two books in their Little Golden Books line!
The first listing is for a My Little Pony Little Golden Book. The second listing is for a My Little Pony: The Movie Big Golden Book!
Aside from both books releasing on August 29th, 2017, no other information about the books exists. However the fact that a Little Golden Book exists at all for My Little Pony: The Movie is a really good indication for how hard the future licensing push is going to be for this film.
Plus, if the Golden Books from when The Force Awakens was released are any indication, the My Little Pony: The Movie Big Golden Book is probably going to contain a very condensed and simplified plot of the film.
So, if you happen to have any kids who are toddlers, or know of kids who are in the age bracket these appeal to, consider possibly picking them up. I certainly remember my mother reading me these books to sleep when I was very little. Perhaps it could give them memories like that too.

Spike might not get as many cosplays as other characters, but without a doubt I do see a Spike or two at every convention. He's also a popular choice for little kids; baby dragon after all, heh.
Get some Spike cosplays after the break!

These epic pieces by GirlSay of Spike are just amazing to behold. They sort of remind me of the art you used to find in the old Final Fantasy booklets from the 90s.
Evening guys! Ready to chat?

As with all pony days, we open the floodgates to anyone at all who wants to give drawing a shot, and similiar to his Equine buddies, Spike got plenty of love in this department.
Below the break, get a bunch of art drawn specifically for Spike Day from people all around the fandom! Thanks to everyone that sent stuff in!
This hit us completely by surprise today when it popped into our inbox. We've seen a number of games over the years but this one is looking to be one of the most polished! Filled with quirky humor, beautiful sprites and an original story, this pony JRPG inspired by the Paper Mario series takes you on an adventure with Derpy and a number of wonderful friends.
Check on after the break for a preview!
Spike Day Comics: Behind / Spike Day / Looking Glass / Morning / Tales / Fine Wine / Heart / Possessions / Charming / Friends / Door Five?by Calpain
Just as Spike has many roles, Spike has many comics with him included! With so many I think we could easily have 3 or 4 comic posts, but we need to make room for regular news and of course other Spike Day things so here are some of the best I found in the emails you guys sent. A big thanks to all of you for sending them in, even if they didn't get picked!
Check on after the break for more Spike!
Spike has had a TON of awesome fan art throughout the years, maybe even more from really skilled artists just because he's not a pony and requires a slightly different skillset to draw. Here in this post, we compile the BEST of the BEST.
If you want any of the previous themed Drawfriend galleries, you can get those over here at it's dedicated best of tag.
Submitted art specifically for Spike Day will have it's own post later, and a regular Drawfriend gallery will be following too.
Anyway, get your Spike below!

Spike Day Comics: Waifu / RD / Family / Awakening / Heart / Tea / Support / Surprises / Smoking / What'd I Say?!by Calpain
While Spike might have great friendships of all kinds throughout Equestria many comics starring him also star Twilight. From the very first episode the two have been practically inseparable and have seen so much together. It's a unique friendship among the ones that Twilight has because despite him being her assistant they both grew up together and as such the fandom has filled in the blanks on what that relationship is like. Of course, not to say Spike doesn't have his own solo roles like above from time to time.
So let's dive in! From DoubleW strangeness, the awesome Rogue Diamond adventure, to plenty of Twilight and Spike moments we've got a bunch of comics involving our dragon friend after the break.
Get into the spirit of Spike Day with a bunch of fanfics starring Equestria's #1 assistant! We have 10 recommended reads for all of you looking to put your feet up with a good book. Plenty of genres are available, from the most futuristic of Sci-Fi to that intense grown-up shipping with his biggest crush! The fandom celebrates all forms of Spike!
Head on down below the break for the list. Happy reading!
Out of our main cast Spike has had the rough of it, starring in a number of episodes that many have found dull or just sub-par. Seems like whenever we get an episode announced that's Spike-centric we get a bunch of groans from our comments section.
Thanks to this current season though, we've seen that Spike can actually be the star of some pretty decent episodes! And as a stalwart friend to each of the mane 6 his importance to them as someone in their lives can't be understated.
So the question is what do you think of Spike as a character? If you dislike him is it because of his lackluster episodes in the past or some deeper character flaw? If you like him what do you like about him and what episodes stand out to you? What would you like to see from our dragon friend in future episodes?
Discuss this and anything Spike related in the comments!
Spike is here again guys! After a break last year due to changing the date his day lands on we're back once again to celebrate our little dragon friend. After a season with some decent episodes for him it's a good time to celebrate! He's currently getting himself a little shuteye in preparation for the day.
Expect a number of the usual posts for an appreciation day like this, though I'm not sure if Silver has a video for today but keep your fingers crossed! If you still haven't sent in your Spike material send it in to [email protected] with Spike Day in the subject line followed by what you're sending in.

See you guys soon with all sorts of Spike stuff!
