Now I have been a My Little Pony fan since I was a little girl, but I never expected as a mother of boys to be still watching the lovable ponies two decades later! I am definitely the type of parent that allows my children to explore whatever things they choose but I have to say a small part of me giggles with excitement that I can still continue to watch some of the shows I used love since the boys have similar entertainment available to them.
On January 21st (today), Shout Factory Kids, in collaboration with Hasbro Studios, released My Little Pony: Classic Movie Collection on DVD! This collection will include 4 classic My Little Pony movies to discover AND reminisce! Obviously, technology has changed since way back when I used to watch the cartoon which makes for some truly great graphics and shows for today's little ones. However, its always nice to go back and watch the originals which started such an amazing trend more than three decades later like MLP.
The synopsis says "In Runaway Rainbow, Rainbow Dash loves the time of year when Ponyville and Breezie Blossom are all about celebrating rainbows. Meanwhile, in a new magical place called Unicornia, Rarity is being taught how to be a Unicorn Princess and the importance of making the first rainbow of the season. But Rarity embarks on an incredible ride that includes a magic wand, falling through the clouds right into the middle of Breezie Blossom, a visit to Ponyville, meeting Spike the Dragon, and a huge adventure as she tries to get back to Unicornia. She soon realizes that getting home in time to create the first rainbow of the season is not an easy thing to do - but it is fun!
The synopsis says "In Friends Are Never Far Away, good friends Sky Wishes and Starcatcher the Pegasus want all of their friends in Ponyville and Butterfly Island to meet. Pegasus ponies are very shy however, so the two plan a special party with music, games and a Pegasus-favorite, ice cream. The party planning doesn't go so smoothly, but it’s quite an adventure!"
The synopsis says "In the highly popular Princess Promenade, Wysteria is beaming with pride! Her gardens are in bloom, her little Breezie friends are in town, and it’s time for Ponyville’s fanciest spring parade, the ultimate celebration of flowers! But things don’t go according to plan when Wysteria accidentally awakens Spike the Dragon, a sleepy, silly, 1,000-year-old dragon! For you see, legend holds that when a dragon is awakened, a new princess is about to be crowned! But who is the Princess of Ponyville?"
Dane was thrilled to watch this DVD set as I knew he would be! Although with this one, he was a bit disappointed since he didn't really recognize characters being they were the classic version. We still enjoyed watching these as the boys were interested in the fact that Mommy used to watch this version.
Recommendation: If your a long time fan I definitely recommend this classic DVD set! Even if you didn't watch it back in the day, your kiddos are sure to still enjoy a different version with new stories to them!
