As a girl, I LOVED My Little Pony, and I have vivid memories of the Christmas when I received the stable, all set up by Santa and waiting to be enjoyed. It's been so fun to watch my own daughters play with the same toys I cherished as a child.
When Maggie was born, a friend of the family came over to visit, and saw Frannie playing with her ponies. "Oh, is that My Little Pony?" she asked. "NO!" replied Frannie. "It's MY little pony!"
Here's the plot of the original movie (to refresh your memory):
The first day of Spring is on its way and the Little Ponies are preparing for it with a big festival. But all the fun may come to an end if the witch Hydia has her way! Can the Ponies defeat Hydia and her evil daughters, Reeka and Draggle? More importantly, can they save Ponyland from the witches’ concoction, the strange purple goo called Smooze, that’s threatening to bury the whole town?
And the newest video:
Music rules and rainbows rock as Twilight Sparkle and pals compete for the top spot in the Canterlot High "Mane Event" talent show. The girls must rock their way to the top and outshine rival Adagio Dazzle and her band The Dazzlings to restore harmony back to Canterlot High.
