I grew up in the 80s (something I am very proud of). There were plenty of kids toys and tv shows that were more popular than anything on tv today – well at least to me! Here we are nearly 20 years later and those classic shows I once loved are on the air for my daughter to now enjoy.
My Little Pony is one such show! I watched it every Saturday morning and had many My Little Pony dolls. It amazing how these toys have made a full 360 and are back into my life once again as an adult this time. I could comb and braid their long manes and tails for hours.
DD has received a few My Little Pony items for review. Her favourites are Pinkie Pie Learns to Walk and Rarity’s Carousel Boutique. Two completely different styles of play, but just as popular for a 3 year old.
Pinkie Pie Learns to Walk is a larger My Little Pony baby doll that talks with saying like: “I’m hungry Mommy” and “You are my best Friend” (one of my favourite sayings). The Pinkie Pie also comes with a bottle and small feeding spoon, dish and makes eating noises when you feed her. The part DD loves the best is teaching her baby to walk. Pinkie Pie’s legs move from sitting to standing (manually) and then when you hold her hands, she will take a few steps (by herself) along the floor with your little ones help! I know DD (and most girls and many boys) enjoy helping little kids learn how to grown up, so this is perfect for those little helpers.
The Rarity’s Carousel Boutique is probably her absolute favourite of all the My Little Pony products she received to review. I have also been caught playing with it myself! This carousel has a small lever that allows the Theme song to My Little Pony to be played – it is very catchy music! Over and over again she plays the music while her mini My Little Pony friends twirl around in circles. The song resembles a popular song from my past so I can’t help but to pull the lever and dance along with the My Little Pony dolls. DD also hums along to the catchy tune.
A new addition to the My Little Pony dolls that I don’t remember from my day is they have little clip on parts that fit on their legs like little drinks and mirrors and they also have many different clips for their hair – making these toys even more interactive than my day. They also have little holes in the bottom of their feet which makes it easy for them to stay put while riding along in their carousel.
Seeing DD play with her My Little Pony toys brings me back to a place I was over 20 years ago. Watching her play makes me understand even more why I enjoyed these adorable little pony’s when I was young. I’m glad to see they are back in fashion! You know, the 80’s were so cool even florescent colours are back!
