The new toys kick off an entire toy line for My Little Pony. At the start, they feature two figures and to playsets based on the animated movie.
This is the first time My Little Pony has been made into a movie since 1986. Since that it was all TV shows, but the popularity is as high as ever.
So, the return to the big screen is a big deal for My Little Pony. Hasbro is the master toy manufacturer for the franchise and has big plans for it. Over the course of the autumn we should see quite a few themed toys making the shelves in stores.
The first 4 are the Cantrelot and Seaquestria Castle play-set, the Pinkie Pie Swimming Seapony figure, the Seashell Lagoon play-set and the My Magical Princess Twilight Sparkle figure. The last one is the most impressive. It features more than 90 phrases, a light-up horn and moving head and hooves. Pinkie Pie on the other hand can actually swim in the water.
My Little Pony: The Movie actually has quite the competition. Is going against Blade Runner 2049 and The LEGO Ningajo Movie. And let’s not forget – the Justice League movie is approaching, too. Still, My Little Pony has quite a lot of fans, so it should do just fine.
