A couple of weeks ago, I shared a post about the upcoming "Barbie & Her Sisters in a Pony a Tale" movie releasing to DVD on October 22nd. Since that time, the kind folks at Mattel sent us the Barbie and Her Sisters’ Giftset, shown below.
Like I shared earlier, Savannah is going through a pony-loving stage, and doesn't go anywhere without a purse or backpack filled with pony toys. So, when she saw the Barbie and Her Sisters’ Giftset, not only did her eyes light up, but she danced around the living room, like she had just won the lottery. :-) Yelling and screaming, it took her a moment to calm herself down, and ask if she could play with it. I know I shouldn't have, but I told her that this was a mistake delivery and not meant for us. But, as soon as I saw her smile turn into a frown and her eyes tear up, I told her that it was for her and Arabella, and that she would have to share. She turned to me and said, "No problem, there are four dolls. I get three and Bella will get one. " Nice sharing, huh? Thankfully, after they started playing, they took turns passing around the dolls, to admire their outfits, right down to their accessories and shoes. This new gift set has provided hours of play and enjoyment with the girls. And, now when we go out, Barbie and her sister come along for the ride. :-)
Savannah is now at the age that she remembers things, and knows that this movie is coming out soon. She asked me to mark the calendar, so that she can do a countdown until the big day. Isn't is nice being a kid? No worries. Just counting down until a movie comes out. :-)
If you missed my earlier post about "Barbie & Her Sisters in a Pony a Tale", here is the trailer and some more back information on the soon to be released movie to DVD on October 22nd:
"In the all-new movie, Barbie® sets off on an equestrian adventure and this time she brings along her sisters, Stacie®, Skipper® and Chelsea®. The sisters travel to a posh horse academy in the majestic Swiss Alpine. There, the girls make new animal friends including a wild horse Barbie® meets in the forest. The two form an instant connection, allowing Barbie® to train the beautiful creature. In the meantime, the sisters also form bonds and create sweet memories with their ponies at the academy. Throughout the movie, the girls learn that anything is possible through the power of family and friendship."
