I received a copy of the My Little Pony DVD- Classic Movie Collection for review. All thoughts are my own.
Is there any little girl who doesn’t love My Little Pony? So many kids love horses and add some wings and sparkle and most kids are thrilled to see their favorite toys come to life in TV. On January 21, My Little Pony is returning to DVD with My Little Pony: Classic Movie Collection, released by Shout! Factory Kids in collaboration with Hasbro Studios. The 2-disc set contains the films Princess Promenade, Runaway Rainbow, Dancing In The Clouds, and Friends Are Never Far Away.
In the highly popular Princess Promenade, Wysteria is beaming with pride! Her gardens are in bloom, her little Breezie friends are in town, and it’s time for Ponyville’s fanciest spring parade, the ultimate celebration of flowers! But things don’t go according to plan when Wysteria accidentally awakens Spike the Dragon, a sleepy, silly, 1,000-year-old dragon! For you see, legend holds that when a dragon is awakened, a new princess is about to be crowned! But who is the Princess of Ponyville?
If it’s all about rainbows it must be about Rainbow Dash. And it is. In Runaway Rainbow, Rainbow Dash loves the time of year when Ponyville and Breezie Blossom are all about celebrating rainbows. Meanwhile, in a new magical place called Unicornia, Rarity is being taught how to be a Unicorn Princess and the importance of making the first rainbow of the season. But Rarity embarks on an incredible ride that includes a magic wand, falling through the clouds right into the middle of Breezie Blossom, a visit to Ponyville, meeting Spike the Dragon, and a huge adventure as she tries to get back to Unicornia. She soon realizes that getting home in time to create the first rainbow of the season is not an easy thing to do – but it is fun!
In Dancing In The Clouds, the Friendship Ball is coming up, and Twinkle Twirl needs to come up with a special dance. A roller coaster ride with friends makes her feel like she’s “dancing in the clouds,” so Sky Wishes helps her make an extra special wish to come up with a dance to make everyone feel that way.
In Friends Are Never Far Away, good friends Sky Wishes and Starcatcher the Pegasus want all of their friends in Ponyville and Butterfly Island to meet. Pegasus ponies are very shy however, so the two plan a special party with music, games and a Pegasus-favorite, ice cream. The party planning doesn’t go so smoothly, but it’s quite an adventure!

My Little Pony came out when I was older so I never really got into them, but they are adorable. Now w/ my daughter loved them when they came out several years back. She still has several of them in her room. I think it’s great they bring back these old movies, toys etc every so many generations.
I loved horses when I was a child too. Your daughter will be rather biased for this DVD, considering her excited smile.
it seems to be a nice movie for girls…
i wanted to gift something to my niece….so will give this one. now…:)
The kids and I (well the oldest two girls) saw the Princess Promenade when it was first out. But not the other ones!
The current generation of ponies (they’re on their 4th) is the best one I’ve seen so far. I grew up with generation 1 and 2. 3 was okay (this is 3 that you’re reviewing for) and 3.5… was awful!
I was unsure of G4, but I do love it! >.> As do my oldest four kiddos. The baby is only 10 1/2 weeks old, so she doesn’t hold much of an opinion yet! 😉
It’s still interesting to see the original (g3) Rainbow Dash compared to the new (g4) one! 😀

I used to love My Little Pony as a little girl. Now I have all boys, so I have to watch this sort of thing with my nieces.

I remember watching MLP when I was a kid. My daughter hasn’t discovered it yet, but ’tis looks too cute to pass up.
Good movie for the little ones. Remember I had one My Little Pony movie when I was little…it was my favorite movie:)

Seems like a fun movie for kids.. my daughter loves horses/pony.. will definitely check out this movie
Love My Little Pony! My daughter also got into the show too.
Oh my goodness. I LOVED MLP when I was little. Had so many of the figurines! Now my 3 y/o niece is obsessed! She would love any of these DVDs. Thanks for sharing.
my daughter when through this phase about 5 years ago.. It was a very cute phase, where she played with the ponys all the time!
My niece loves My Little Pony and I know I loved them as a child and so did my sister. I guess it’s a little girl thing. But they are so cute and… cute, lol
I used to LOVE My Little Pony as a kid! It’s so fun to watch my daughter play with toys I once did 🙂
I remember My Little Pony! Since I raised boys (who are now teens) I didn’t have many movies like this around my house, but I have fond memories of snuggling on the couch with my nieces watching, and also in the really pre kid days when I was babysitting! I’m glad to see this blast from the past coming back again
How cool! I loved My Little Pony when I was a kid. The funny thing is now my 3 year old son likes them more then my 8 year old daughter.
My Children (two boys and a girl) love the new my little pony. I still lust after the original! I can’t believe they have released an entire movie of the original characters! I’m so excited!
So cute, I missed out. I had boys, football, legos and big trucks at my house.
When my sister and I were little, we loved My Little Pony! My sister had the barn! I even remember you could send away for your own baby pony with choice of colors or a white pony that had your birth flower on it’s booty. The new MLP is cute too, but a totally different style!

It’s nice to know that these are good, safe entertainment for the kids. That’s hard to find these days.
I love my little pony! And your daughter has beautiful eyes!
Kids love everything that comes new to them. I can bet your suggested kids friendly stuff would always be loved in all the times.

My 11 year old still loves My Little Pony & he watches is all the time with his little sister. They would love this classic collection 🙂
My kids were huge My Little Pony fans and we had all the colorful knick-knacks for years… I remember those days well. I loved them too.
