Friendship is Magic - Welcome To Ponyville


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.

Meet Twilight Sparkle, a very special little pony with a very powerful gift for magical spells and loves to study. As part of her ongoing studies, she has been tasked an assignment by the Royal Princess Celestia of Equestria to learn something new… The true meaning of friendship.

In the quaint, magical village of Ponyville, Twilight Sparkle sets off on her assignment with her best friend, a little purple dragon called Spike and makes some new and adorable friends along the way. Join her and her pony friends Pinkie Pie, Rarity, Fluttershy, Rainbow Dash and Applejack on their enchanting and laughter-filled adventures as they discover the most powerful magic of all time, the Magic of Friendship!




Welcome to Ponyville is rated U making it suitable for the entire family and is available from many retailers.
RRP £12.99.

As a recent survey by Clearvision showed the majority of young children prefer traditional toys to tech gadgets this may be a good gift idea for Santa to slip into a stocking this year!


Do you remember My Little Pony from your childhood?

  7. I never had MLPs when I was little - Mum didn't like them! I'm glad to hear they have updated it in a way that still retains it's old feeling though.
