Amazing Story Even Watching it Back 15 Years Later

I used to watch this movie as a little girl. I can remember now why I loved it so much! If anyone isn't sure, don't worry! This story teaches so many valuable lessons about friendship and working together! I would not hesitate to have my kids watch this.

Although parents may have trouble getting through this syrupy sweet tale, they'll appreciate the lack of iffy content and the nice message about the importance of making friends. My Little Pony: Friends Are Never Far Away is an especially appropriate story for kids who've struggled with shyness -- they'll be encouraged by watching the Pegasus ponies discover making new friends isn't really that scary after all.

Fans of the newer My Little Pony series may be a bit confused by the different animation and style here, but it's a gentle, simple introduction to the series for younger fans.
