There was a tutorial that helped parents remove some of the magnets due to the dangers that magnets present to children. There were some ponies that somehow managed to make it out of the factory without their magnet. So I'm not really sure hopefully someone can give you a better answer. Most of the ponies I have from the early release of G3 have magnets. I don't remember the date that has real quit making them with magnets. The issue is though that even the ones that should have come with magnets may have been removed by parents.

Do you have pictures? I am not sure exactly what you are saying and I want to make sure I know what it is you are wondering about. So, see if you can post a photo. When you remove a magnet there will be glue remnants inside the hoof. This is normal. If there is an empty and clean hole it may have been a factory error that the magnet is not there. Most parents didn't clean out the hooves when they popped those out.

Cinnamon has hoof magnet
Golden Delicious has hoof magnet
Piccolo I am not certain as I don't have this pony to check. Since she came with the set it is safe to assume she also had a magnet. Since the others in the set did.

So, conclusion I come to is parent removal if yours are missing. They should have them. Factory error if missing can sometimes occur also but the inside of the hoof will be clean and spotless if it is factory. This factory error does not create any higher value.

Yes, they did have magnets. :) They were essentially exactly the same as the versions of the ponies released in stores, other than the stickers.

Funny story . . . due to a retailer ignoring the official release date, I actually picked up Sunny Daze in the store BEFORE the "first 50" of her were sold, lol.

If you pony has just a plastic cap rather than a magnet, that means she is a later release. Hasbro did rerelease many G3 ponies in three-pack sets and play-packs. :)

Does Piccolo have a yellow music note on her symbol or a pink music note?

Hi! @my little pony collector
I also have the same issue with my Cinnamon Breeze and piccolo. I don’t own the regular golden delicous, so I can’t speak for her, but none of mine work either.
I have: Regular cinnamon Breeze, Disney Cinnamon Breeze, Disney Piccolo
None of their magnets work at all
I made a (not so great, sorry!) video to show what I mean. Here it is:
(there’s no talking or music, sorry) I didn’t have piccolo at the time but she is the exact same as the cinnamons. None of them have anything unusual about them
Let me know if this is the same as your ponies,

I no longer have mine , but all 3 had magnets. Now I have a canopy bed with a metal frame and my ponies can stick all over it. I have a parade of ponies going around the top that I can always see. o_O yes, I'm such a kid at heart still. Forever.
