Don't you love it when you can share some of your favorite childhood toys with your children. Having two girls was great, as my mother kept all my stuffed animals and dolls, so that I could pass along to my children one day. Included in the boxes was my collection of My Little Pony dolls. Well, they didn't look anything like this or the other My Little Pony dolls, but it was nice to compare and see how far the toy industry has come in 20+ years.
I was sent the new Princess Cadence pony to review, and have to say that it brought back memories of my childhood playing with my friends. I remember brushing their hair with the little brushes that were included with the toy, and always carrying around 1-2 ponies in my purse for car rides and day trips. My girls and I have been watching My Little Pony, the new animated cartoon series on The Hub, as well as a growing collection of DVD movies, so you can only imagine how excited they would be when they saw this beautiful pony up close. Unlike the ponies I had passed down, as well as the ones I have purchased for them, this new My Little Pony lights up and talks, with a push of a button on the side of the belly. Also, when you push the push, the wings of the pony move up and down. This was Savannah's favorite feature of the toy, and would run around the house making the pony fly, and watching Cadence's wings going up and down at a push of a button.
When Savannah wasn't making Cadence fly, she would carry her around everywhere she went. Too big to fit in her purse, Savannah would hold her under her arm. And, when she was watching movies on the iPad on the couch, Cadence was right next to her. Since receiving this new talking My Little Pony, Savannah and Cadence have been inseparable. I have to admit, I love snuggling up next to the both of them on the couch and watching Savannah comb her hair, as it reminds me of my childhood. :-)
So, if you have a My Little Pony fan in your house, or are lucky enough to have girls, why not share your love of My Little Pony with them this holiday season?
