You almost can’t go wrong with MY LITTLE PONY, and that’s something that my girls (and a massive following of kids and grownups alike) will be happy to back me up on. While viewers eagerly await the fifth season of MY LITTLE PONY FRIENDSHIP IS MAGIC (coming to Discovery Family next year), the toy aisles have been serving up some new ways to have some adventures in Equestria. From Cartwheel Kids under license from Hasbro comes the Pinkie Pie Sweet Style Pony, a new twist on the classic styling heads that kids have been playing with for ages.
Recommended for Ages 3+, Pinkie Pie has a long mane that can be styled however kids may want – the only limit is imagination (or in my case, skill). Packed with accessories including barrettes, hair clips, shiny stickers, a hair extension (that kids can wear), a brush and a pony necklace that doubles as a kid-sized bracelet, there’s hours of fun to be had here, and Pinkie Pie has received the seal of approval from The Rock Daughters.
Note: The Pinkie Pie Styling Pony should be available in-store for under $20, but this has become one of this season’s unexpected hits. As of this writing, Walmart.com is sold-out at $15.99, while third-party marketplace sellers on Amazon and such are already nearing the $40 range. Best bet is to try spotting it in your local store.
