Fortunately the weekend didn’t leave My Little Pony behind, and following CM’s themed 6th birthday party we carried on the enjoyment as Monday saw ‘Equestria Girls: Rainbow Rocks‘ released on DVD and digital download.
Perfect for CM as this is a feature-length movie, recently acclimatised to the cinema, CM is enjoying longer films and well as longer books, and given this is her all time favourite of subjects I have been assured by her that the Equestria Girls have not disappointed.
With all of CMs favourites- Rainbow Dash, Applejack, Pinkie Pie, Rarity and Fluttershy the film has CM’s instant attention, by as always, unpick things and the ‘friendship is magic’ theme rings through- and fortunately for us all, Twilight Sparkle restores harmony, and as CM’s absolute favourite- absolutely makes the film complete.
Whilst I still can’t get my head around what has happened to the My Little Pony of my youth, and more so, where on earth the Equestria Girls came from, I cannot fail to be happy this is what is taking CM’s attention. At 6 she’s at the influential age, where children begin to say things which may be cruel, not only does My Little Pony Equestria Girls feel age appropriate, but also the values come through I am content for CM to hold close.
More happy because we’re off on what will no doubt be a 4 hour drive to Newquay next week, and I’m so pleased we’ll have something in our armoury to keep CM occupied as no doubt ‘I Spy’ will take its toll on us all at some point. And with the added extra of some fab activity sheets, featuring Twilight Sparkle, I think we’ll be more than sorted.
And because I’m sure I’m not alone in preparing a few extras in the armoury of keeping little ones entertained, I’m so excited to be able to offer a copy of this “much endorsed by a number 1 fan” DVD as a giveaway, follow the instructions below!
