My Thoughts:

It turned out to be movie night in our house when Savannah stumbled upon the upcoming MY LITTLE PONIES: FRIENDSHIP IS MAGIC: ADVENTURES IN THE CRYSTAL EMPIRE, I was sent for review. She doesn't miss an episode of MY LITTLE PONY on The Hub, and has a collection of ponies that we have bought and she has received as gifts. I turned her onto MY LITTLE PONY when I passed down my childhood collection of ponies and stumbled upon the new animated television series one day.

Were you a big MY LITTLE PONY fan growing up? And, does your children like the new animated series and toys available from Hasbro? If so, they will love the new release arriving on DVD on Dec. 4th, which includes 5 popular episodes from the hit television series airing on The Hub TV Network.

Here is a clip of the show, if case you haven't seen it yet.

Even though Savannah and I have seen the five episodes that make up this new release, it was still nice to watch them again. She also liked the bonus sing along feature, which is worth checking out once you buy this new release. We had a mini dance party in our living, as I sang the song and Savannah made up her own words. :-)

I am so happy to see some of my favorite childhood toys and shows revamped and offered for new generations to enjoy. And, with the new MY LITTLE PONY: Friendship Is Magic series, I can share some of my favorite childhood memories of these magical ponies with my daughter. And, if even gives me an excuse to sit alongside them and brush the pony's hair. :-)

So, why not surprise your MY LITTLE PONY: Friendship Is Magic fan this holiday season with this upcoming release from Shout!Factory and Hasbro Studios?
