The phrase everything old is new again was never more true than it is today.
In the past few months, I’ve found myself (TWICE now!) going back on my word of not buying my daughter any toys at a consignment sale when I came upon two of my own childhood favorites: Rainbow Brite & a Cabbage Patch doll. I literally was rendered powerless to say no because of the rush of happy memories that flooded me when I saw the dolls.
Even more recently, I experienced that same rush of fond childhood memories when I discovered the new My Little Pony Friendship is Magic: the Friendship Express DVD in my mailbox!
I was mildly obsessed with My Little Pony when I was a little girl. Maybe because they were so colorful and maybe my mom simply indulged me because they were so affordable 😉
Whatever the reason, I’m thrilled that they’re making a comeback so my little girl can start building her own wonderful memories.
As a mom, I was pleasantly surprised to discover that there are actually six episodes on the DVD. I have a hard time spending money on animated DVD’s that only serve up a half hour of entertainment. My kids were both home sick last week, and I couldn’t believe how long this DVD held their attention (both because of the length and story-lines).
The only thing that confused them a little bit was that the title story-line didn’t appear until a little later in the DVD and it seems there were some “mean ponies” in the initial episode, but all resolved for good…just as it should in the land of My Little Pony.
If you want a quick sing-a-long, just check this out:
