I remember loving my little pony as a little girl. Kaitlin also went through a my little pony phase as well. I had loads of them and loved combing their hair and playing with them for hours on end. Like with many children’s shows and phenomenons a movie has been made. My Little Pony: The Movie will be released in October. Hasbro has brought out a great range of toys to accompany the film.
We have had the pleasure of trying out this new interactive pony Twilight Sparkle over the last few weeks. Not sure who was more excited the boys or Kaitlin. Hasbro’s range of toys include Twilight Sparkle and Spike the Dragon, the Seashell Lagoon playset, the Canterlot and Seaquestia Castle, Pinkie Pie Swimming Seapony and My Magical Princess Twilight!
he boys were very curious when we got Twilight Sparkle out of the box. They loved all the sounds and movements. We had to let her settle for a second and interact one at a time so we could work out what functions she had. The boys just loved how she moved and talked.
The boys really liked the story mode and when she sang to them. They loved it when she fluttered her wings. Kaitlin wanted to play with her hair (I had to remind her she was 12 as she was so excited).
Twilight sparkle will tell you a story, sing to you and share magic tricks. Her front leg moves and her wings flutters. The unicorn spike lights up on her head and she also opens and shuts her eyes. She is very visual with all the movements she makes. She has over 90 different saying (songs stories and magic).
You need batteries for your Twilight Sparkle she takes 4 C/LR14 batteries. Because we have only played for a short time so far I can’t comment on how long the batteries will last.
Although twilight sparkle is soft and fluffy on the outside the pony isn’t really a cuddly pony. There are lots of hard parts in the middle, obviously this is what makes her so interactive. You can still cuddle her and she does feel nice to touch just a bit hard and lumpy.
Overall Twilight Sparkle is a very interactive friendly toy. She would make a lovely companion your little ones and she tells great stories for bedtime. The recommended age is 3+ and Twilight sparkle will cost around £120 depending on where you shop.
