My Little Pony-Friendship is Magic: Spooktacular Pony Tales on DVD Today, 9/9 (Review)

Disclosure:  I was sent a screener copy from the vendor in order to write up an honest review.  All views shared are mine and mine alone.

If you have been to the store lately, you have probably seen the Halloween displays, candy aisle and costumes already out.  So much for summer, right?  Today I ended up picking up pumpkins for the girls as Savannah has been asking me since last week to get one so that we could use the pumpkin stencil that comes with the new My Little Pony:  DVD, which came out today in stores.  We had received a screener copy early last week, but have already watched this DVD, which is filled with 6 ponyriffic episodes (Savannah's words, not mine!) :-)  They are Halloween themed, with costumes, spooks and more -- but, don't worry they aren't scary.

"Everypony loves Halloween… the candy, the pumpkins, the costumes, the friends! Join your favorite residents of Ponyville — Twilight Sparkle, Rainbow Dash, Fluttershy, Rarity, Applejack, Pinkie Pie and, of course, Spike — as they take on some of the spookiest adventures Equestria’s ever seen! Time to gather around and hold on tight, because these six exciting tales are a chillingly good romp."

If you have a MLP fan in your life, both young and old, this is one DVD I suggest picking.  I love when shows come out with holiday themed DVDs, as it makes for getting excited about an upcoming holiday that much more fun.  Like I said, this DVD comes with a fun paper stencil that you can use this Halloween, as well as a catchy sing-along bonus feature that you don't want to miss.

Oh, and I almost forgot to mention that there is a lso a color Halloween poster featuring all the ponies for your child to hang on the wall.  I almost forget as the first day we got this DVD and Savannah saw it, it had to go up on her wall.

I just noticed it when I went to check on her.  So begins the posters on the walls in the girls room.  Hey, at least it is a MLP one. :-)

Savannah is a die hard MLP fan and has been one since she was one and my mom surprised her with my childhood ponies.  Seeing how much fun Savannah has watching this animated series, which airs daily on the Hub Network, Bella is now getting into the show.  I have lost count on how many times she has asked to watched Equestria Girls.  And, when Savannah is in school, Bella will sneak and play with her ponies, or grab her MLP microphone and belt out the theme song. :-)

It was hard for the girls to choose a favorite episode, as any MLP is a favorite to them.  But, they did like the Halloween feel and costume dress up, and have had this new DVD on full rotation since receiving.

These are the full-length episodes you will find on this new DVD release:

Boast Busters

Stare Master
Luna Eclipsed
Sleepless In Ponyville
Castle Mane-ia

I definitely recommend this DVD not just for getting into the Halloween spirit, but that it makes for a great addition to your family's growing MLP DVD collection.  I have to say, I am excited to see how our MLP pumpkin comes out this weekend.  I never thought to carve a MLP character into a pumpkin, but thanks to this paper stencil, it looks like a lot of fun. :-)
