Growing up there were a few toys that I held close: my Strawberry Shortcake doll, my Cabbage Patch doll (Esther Morgana), and my extensive collection of My Little Ponies. My friends and I loved our My Little Pony collection and loved brushing their hair every single day!
Now, my daughters are huge My Little Pony fans and it is so much fun to share my memories and make new ones with their own collection. My girls are so lucky because now they can watch the ponies come to life on The Hub and now on DVD. In fact, on February 28th, Shout! Factory and Hasbro Studios released My Little Pony Friendship is Magic: The Friendship Express on DVD. The new DVD features 5 episodes and bonus features such as “Meet the Ponies” and super cute sing-a-longs. It also includes “Yipper Caper,” the very first episode of the new Pound Puppies series.
In contrast to most television programming, the episodes promote friendship between the ponies. The episodes include Friendship Is Magic, Part 1 (Mare In The Moon), Friendship Is Magic, Part 2 (Elements Of Harmony), Over A Barrel, Hearth’s Warming Eve, and The Last Roundup. Throughout the episodes, Twilight Sparkle learns that their is more to life than magic…friendship is key! Twilight learns what it means to be true friends in several adventures with her fellow ponies.
My youngest daughter took a liking to Rainbow Dash and laughed every time she came on screen! I like that the DVD is broken up into 5 episodes. It allows my girls to watch one episode a day and keeps the attention of my 4 year old. The DVD can be purchased for just $9.99 on Amazon.com.
