I always loved My Little Pony as a child so receiving the revamped version on DVD instantly brought back memories of my youth - I was probably more excited to watch it with the opportunity to reminisce than the Mini Mes were!
While unwrapping the movie I began to remember having my own collection, brushing their tails, placing a doll on their back and making them gallop around my room which made me feel quite warm inside. Childhoods are made of magic and imagination and this is something I definitely want my children to experience too.
I was really looking forward to sharing a part of what I enjoyed as a little girl with them so we snuggled up under a blanket to watch an episode together.
There are 6 episodes in total, all of which teach valuable lessons about friendship.
Despite Jamster not being keen initially at the thought of watching something aimed at a predominantly female audience he was actually the one to ask to watch another episode so he must have enjoyed it!
The episodes were all quite entertaining and I liked the modern style of a more traditional show... we ended up watching them all in one sitting.
