Will with guarantee satisfy the G3 fans. Not much excitement but good animation and songs. Part of endless row of MLP toys.

Too much consumerism
age 3+

A sweet and gentle bit of fluff

I watched this on a rainy Monday afternoon with my son, who is almost 4, and we enjoyed it very much. Because it's a few years old, the animation is slower and gentler than some of the newer stuff, which made it more bearable for me! Although there are moments of slight 'peril' they aren't dwelt on, so nothing felt too scary. There are lots of songs, too. And I appreciated that, for once, my son wasn't required to learn anything! Big smiles and laughs from him throughout.
