Top Ten Toys – Twincess Tested (Part 4: My Little Pony)

Can you believe it’s just over 6 weeks until Christmas?! I’m kinda feeling like the festive season is sneaking up on us this year… but to ensure you’re not caught unawares… here’s the 4th post in our Top Ten Toys series: My Little Pony.

In our house, My Little Pony has become one of the Twincess’ most loved range this year. It’s probably down to the fact that the Equestria Girls Dolls were released and they’ve had the opportunity to watch the My Little Pony Live show.

Whatever the reason, MLP is on repeat all day every day, and they often role play as different characters from the show.

If your child is as obsessed with My Little Pony as mine are, you’re in luck: there’s a gigantic selection of MLP toys and accessories for you to choose from this Christmas.

First up, there’s the newest offering: the Equestria Girls Dolls. As mentioned in my review when the dolls launched, the Equestria Girls are the humanized versions of the beloved ponies. We received Rainbow Dash to review, but the girls often fought over the doll… and I eventually bought them Fluttershy, Twighlight Sparkle and Pinkie Pie.

The dolls bring endless hours of fun to my girls and the outfits are positively breathtaking, if I do say so myself!

They retail for R299, and is incredible value for the quality and detail you get.

If you’re intent on collecting all the Equestria Girls, there’s also the option to purchase Equestria girl minis. The minis will make great stocking fillers!

For those who prefer soft toys, you can find a whole range of MLP characters in your favorite toy store.

I got beautiful Pinkie Pie And Rainbow Dash from Checkers at just R99 each! They would make a great gift for the younger MLP fans.

If you’re looking for the original ponies with their well known cutie marks, there are various models and sizes available. There are also extravagant play sets, with scenes from the My Little Pony movie in stores to keep your little one engaged.

What I love about My Little Pony is that it teaches children the value of friendship and working together. Each Pony has a particular element or character that is represented in friendship. Be it loyalty, kindness or generosity – these are traits I’m happy to have my girls watch and emulate. I love that this show teaches children something so positive!

If you’ve got a MLP fan on your hands, you’ll be spoilt for choice when selecting a gift. Just be sure to inquire about which Pony your little one loves most and you’re sure to find the perfect Christmas present this year!

My Little Pony merchandise is available from Hasbro at all toy retailers, large chain supermarkets and online. Prices from R79,99.

My Little Pony Live Show

On Saturday we were invited to share the magic of Equestria and the Mane 6 in a brand new live production tour of My Little Pony.

The performance was bursting with song and dance, taking children on a journey of friendship and kindness.

The show featured all six ponies and their Equestria girls as they took us through a story, a fashion show and a game.

It was completely interactive and the kids loved being part of the magic.

The venue was the Rockwood Theatre at Sibaya Casino which I really like due to its laid back atmosphere. There’s a small food menu and a well stocked bar. Kids are free to run around and the vibe is very family-orientated.

Special confectionery at the show was in the form of slush puppies and popcorn at only R10 each.

There was also a dedicated Toys R Us stand selling My Little Pony merchandise.

We were lucky to have Meet and Greet tickets so we got to get up on stage and chat to the Equestria Girls whilst giving the ponies lots of cuddles. I found the Meet and Greet a little chaotic due to the kid’s over-excitement… which I guess was to be expected!

However the girls came back with beautiful memories of one of their favorite shows. Ask them who their favorite pony is, and it changes daily!

The show takes place in Durban from 28 September to 2 October and then moves to Johannesburg for shows from 3-6 October. Tickets can be purchased from Computicket.

Thank you Hasbro for this wonderful opportunity!

My Little Pony’s Equestria Girls Doll (Review & Giveaway)

“If the Equestria Girls look familiar, it may be because there is a magical mirror that connects the world of My Little Pony to Canterlot High. When Twilight Sparkle steps through the mirror, she discovers another world of friendship lessons where almost every pony she knows from Equestria has turned to teenage humans, walking the halls on two feet instead of hooves.”

Yes folks, the classic My Little Pony you know and love from your own childhood has just been reinvented as humans! Thanks to Hasbro, we can now join the Equestria Girls on adventures that see them take on school dances, battle of the bands and so much more.

The dolls are 28cm each and there are seven of your favorite characters to collect: Twilight Sparkle, Pinkie Pie, Apple Jack, Rainbow Dash, Sunset Shimmer, Rarity and Fluttershy.

Each of the beautiful dolls in the range comes with a fabulous outfit that is matched to their personality.

We received a beautiful Equestria Girl doll for the Twincesses to play with and they were over the moon to find it was one of their favorite characters, Rainbow Dash.

Rainbow Dash is athletic, courageous and always looking for adventure as she dashes through the halls of Canterlot High in a rainbow of style.

I was taken aback by the detail that went into the outfit: rainbow striped leggings, blue jacket over a rainbow printed t-shirt and hardcore combat boots. Her hair – traditionally awash with a hue of colors and multi-colored bangles completed her look.

The attention to detail was evident and made the character come to life in the hands of my girls.

They immediately requested that I put on the Equestria Girls YouTube channel and then let their imaginations run wild. The dolls are nicely articulated at seven points which allowed the girls to pose them into their story-telling scenarios.

In addition to the full size Equestria Girl dolls, there is a range of 7cm My Little Pony Equestria Girls mini-dolls, each with a stylish look, colourful hair and sculpted outfits. Each doll is posed in a fun way that’s true to her personality. There is also an assortment of My Little Pony Equestria Girls Minis story pack sets, which each include a poseable mini-doll (with a signature look and hairstyle) and fun accessories.

My Little Pony Equestria Girls dolls (each sold separately & subject to availability) are available exclusively from Toys R Us stores nationwide.

I have 2 gorgeous Equestria Girl dolls to give away to two lucky readers!
