My Thoughts:

I was a My Little Pony fan growing up, and love seeing my girls getting excited about the ponies like I did.  Earlier this month, Build a Bear began offering the Pinkie Pony and Rainbow Pony online and at their stores.  Savannah saw the ponies when they were on display Easter weekend, and wouldn't stop asking for one, long after we left the store.  I ended having my parents go back to the school the Monday after Easter, to make one of each for the girls, as this was the day they began selling them to the public.  Then, I took the 1 1/2 hr. drive up to their house to surprise the girls with the ponies the next day.  Their eyes lit up when they saw their new stuffed pony plush toys, and again when I showed them the new My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic - Princess Twilight Sparkle, which releases on April 30th.  

I love when childhood shows are revamped for the younger generations, as this show has, which airs on The Hub Network.  Since stumbling upon this animated series, we have made a point to tune and watch each and every episode, and own all the DVDs that have released from The Shout! Factory.  This new release contains 5 episodes, along with fun downloadable coloring sheets and a catchy sing along, which make up the bonus features.  Don't ask me which episode my girls liked best, as they would say all of them.  I have to agree with them, as they were all so entertaining all full of magic and adventure.  My Little Pony fans (both young and old) will definitely enjoy this new release, and will find themselves watching it over and over again.  We have only had it for a couple of weeks, but the girls have seen the entire DVD over a dozen times so far, with more viewing in site. :-)
