Out of all the ponies, Savannah's favorite is Rainbow Dash, with Pinkie Pie in a close second. :-) So, when Savannah saw me opening the new My Little Pony: A Dash of Awesome DVD, which the kind folks at Shout! Factory sent our way to review, she thought it was Christmas all over again. Her eyes lit up and she was smiling from ear to ear. I never saw her behave so well, in hopes that her good behavior would get the opportunity to watch this DVD before the weekend. After dinner last Tuesday night, we changed the girls into their pj's and settled in to watch two out of the five adventure filled episodes that make up this DVD.
As soon as Rainbow Dash and the other ponies appeared on the screen, Savannah went crazy, as she wasn't expecting me to play this DVD. And, for the next half hour, she was glued to the TV, as was Bella. All I could hear was Savannah talking with Bella about how cool Rainbow Dash was and filling her in on the cutie marks and other things that relate to the ponies, as if Bella didn't know.
Growing up, I was a fan of My Little Pony, and loved watching MLP movies, but I have to admit, I am loving the new animated version that airs daily on The Hub much better. The story lines are more entertaining, the theme song is great and you can't watch an episode without learning all the names of the ponies -- Rainbow Dash, Fluttershy, Applejack, Pinkie Pie, and Rarity. And, if you don't know what has been going on the MLP gang, leave it to your little ones to fill you in...in great detail, as they really get excited about the show.
You can always count on the My Little Pony series to include catchy songs, that you and your child will love to sing along to. And, this new My Little Pony DVD spares no expense on songs. Out of all the songs the ponies sang, my girls and I can't get enough of the "Find a Pet" song sung by Fluttershy and Rainbow Dash, shown in the below YouTube clip:
So, with Easter fast approaching, why not pick up the new My Little Pony: A Dash of Awesome DVD to surprise your MLP fan with, and grow their collection of My Little Pony DVDs released by Shout! Factory.
