Too Many Pinkie Pies

Pinkie Pie can’t decide which of her pony friends she should hang out with, so using a magical spell she copies herself so she can have fun all over Ponyville. Pinkie Pie’s good intentions cause problems with all the residents of Ponyville. 

My Review:

I didn’t play much with My Little Pony toys when I was younger, though I know I owned a few. During the past year or two, my daughter has completely fallen in love with ponies. Our neighbor gave her some of her old pony toys, and for the longest time they were the only toys she would play with.

Once episodes started to come out on DVD, I began sharing them with her and recapturing my own childhood. I really like the new show; not only do I end up laughing a lot at the antics (especially when Pinkie Pie is involved), but they also teach a good moral lesson that’s summarized at the end of each show. As a parent, I can usually figure out the message after a minute or two, but I appreciate the writers for taking the time to make it clear to kids who are watching what they want to say.

The new animation in this series is a lot more fun than I had thought at first, too. I actually know more adults than kids that are in love with the show, and even I have started collecting my own My Little Pony merchandise. I’m especially loving the t-shirts!

The My Little Pony show on the Hub is the perfect thing for parents and kids to watch together, and even guys are sure to like it!
