For over 30 years My Little Pony toys have brought magical fun to millions of children worldwide. These vinyl toys have been a staple of many toy-boxes and on many letters to Santa, since their introduction by Hasbro© in 1981. The sweet ponies come in a huge variety of styles and each character has its own sweet name like Rainbow Dash, Princess Twilight Sparkles, Apple Jack, and Pinkie Pie. If the names alone don’t make these little ponies irresistible to children, then their various adornments will definitely catch your child’s eye in the toy-store.

There’s a Rainbow Dash-inspired stop sign to open and close, and a button on the hood, that when pressed, opens the bus door.
While the “Playskool Friends My Little Pony toys” may be geared at a younger audience my daughter who is just shy of three enjoys incorporating the chunky pony figures into her My Little Pony and Little People play.
The fun never stops with Hasbro’s My Little Pony Pretend Play range. Children can dress their Princess Twilight Sparkle pony in her pretty tiara, and place her in her carriage for . There’s enough room in the carriage for 2 ponies. The play-set includes 1 pony, additional ponies are sold separately and 4 super cute charms.

Get ready for bright princess fun with this light-up, talking figure. As you comb and style her super soft long, gorgeous hair, she responds with several different phrases! As she speaks her legs and horn light up. She also sings. Because this is a Canadian doll, the pony speaks both English and French. Kids will adore combing her hair and styling her mane and tail – although she doesn’t come with any hair clips. We did notice she has no off button too, which may annoy some parents. Despite the minor issues, if you have a My Little Pony fan in your house, then I am sure she will be greatly appreciated. Scan your pony’s code to unlock more fun in the My Little Pony app! Requires two “AA” batteries, not included. I know my daughter is going to love her come Christmas morning.

The roller features fun designs and can be removed from Pinkie Pie. Each set includes two character tools and four cans of Play-Doh compound in pink, purple and two shades of blue. If your little one likes My Little Pony, it’s a nice addition. I am thinking my daughter might prefer the Play-Doh My Little Pony Make ‘n Style Ponies set, wheres he can make actual ponies over this, but we will see come Christmas morning.
