When I was a girl, I played with My Little Ponies, Strawberry Shortcake, Cabbage Patch Dolls and Care Bears. Nearly three decades later, my little girl plays with My Little Ponies, Strawberry Shortcake, Cabbage Patch Dolls and Care Bears. Of course, these vintage characters have gotten some modern makeovers, but K loves the just as much today as I remember loving them as a girl. My Little Ponies are such a hit these days, that Applejack was the only request on my daughter’s Santa List.
These days My Little Pony Friendship Is Magic is big part of our Saturday morning routine and the show regularly takes up precious space on our DVR. So while K was thrilled to have, “My very own My Little Pony movie.” I was thrilled to have more space to DVR my shows. My Little Pony Friendship Is Magic: The Friendship Express isn’t really a movie (it is five TV episodes), but there’s no point in trying to explain this to K. In her world, anything on DVD is a movie.
In My Little Pony Friendship is Magic: The Friendship Express, the benevolent Princess Celestia, ruler of Equestria, selects unicorn Twilight Sparkle for a very important assignment – to learn about the most important magic of all: friendship. With her new friends, Applejack, Rarity, Fluttershy, Rainbow Dash and Pinkie Pie, Twilight sets out on amazing adventures, and they all learn what it means to be true friends.
The DVD includes five episodes:
- Friendship is Magic, Part 1 (Mare In The Moon)
- Friendship is Magic, Part 2 (Elements of Harmony)
- Over A Barrel
- Hearth’s Warming Eve
- The Last Roundup
I believe K had seen all of the episodes prior to watching the DVD (although it is hard to keep track), but she was still pleased as a peach to watch them again.
The running theme throughout all of the My Little Pony episodes is, of course, friendship. And as the ponies learn what it means to be a good friend, I can only hope that K is listening and also learning what it means to be a friend. Since she talks about the Ponies and their adventures as if they were real, I like to think a little of that friendship magic is rubbing off on her. One thing is for sure, when that theme song starts up, she’s ready to dance and then sit glued to the TV no matter how many times she’s seen that episode.
My Little Pony Friendship Is Magic: The Friendship Express is now available on DVD from Amazon. (It retails for $14.99, but it is currently available for $9.99.)
