Great for Girls - No Princess Zone!

Wonderfull to see girls that are strong, adventurous, kind, smart, creative and have integrity. A great alternative to the over abundance of vacant princess options. Would love if the body types were more varied. Seems to be a lot of very tall thin girls which doesn't represent reality. We should be more conscious of how this affects girls self esteem.

Is It Any Good?

Kids say: Not yet rated

Though the adventure, courage, and plucky girl charisma that make the original series a success are present here, these collections of episodes and music videos are a a little disorganized. Is Spirit Riding Free: Pony Tales a mini season? Are they fun stand-alone side stories and songs? It's hard to tell given that one collection consists of music videos and 6-minute episodes and the other collection features full episodes. Aside from that confusion, the shows and videos are of the same visual and storytelling quality of the original.

The situations of peril and menace are also tamer here, so it's safe to show younger kids this collection, a definitely plus for mixed aged families. The music videos are catchy and won't grate on adults when kids play them over and over. Spirit fans (and their slightly younger siblings) should enjoy this grab bag.
