Since I last posted, the new Friendship Is Magic My Little Pony cartoon debuted on the HUB channel. While I admit I was a little hesitant about the new body style and direction the My Little Pony line was headed, after watching an episode of the new series I'm a fan! I love the storyline and feel that instead of dumbing down MLP for the 3-5 set, Hasbro is now incorporating characters and dialogue that will expand their target audience to include a wider age range.
Most of the new toys have yet to make an appearance in my area, but I was able to pick up the Friendship is Magic gift pack at my local Target a few weeks ago. It was such a nice change to actually walk down the toy aisle and get excited about a new pony product!
I hope that the My Little Pony with Pets assortment will be stocked in my area soon as I'm all about their brushable hair.
I'm also looking forward to this set since Applejack is my all-time favorite pony in any generation and she totally deserves her own barn!
