My Little Pony: Twinkle Wish Adventure Review and Giveaway

This Giveaway has ended. See the bottom of the post for winner notification.
You may not think of my blog first when you hear the words Mom Blogger and my blog is not primarily a review and giveaway blog, but if you have followed for any length of time, you know that I do reviews on occasion. And, I am a mom and a blogger, so I am a Mom Blogger. Most recently, I received a copy of My Little Pony to review. I do get to keep the video, but my opinion remains my own.

In this video, Pretty Little ponies sing and dance in a whirl of color and cookie making in the Prequel called "Waiting For The Winter Wishes Festival", but don't be fooled when the credits roll after the first five minutes - it was just the prequel!

Next, Twinkle Wish Adventure begins with soft music, balloons, cupcakes and party hats. The ponies discuss all their favorite holiday traditions and learn about the most important of all: placing the twinkle wishing star on top of the ever forever green tree. Find out what happens when the wishing star disappears, and the ponies go on an adventure to solve the mystery!

This video shares all that is fun and whimsical in Ponyville, and Amilia really enjoyed watching. It is not one that will hold my interest past the first viewing, but she lined up her animals at the "theater" and viewed it three times. I am happy to allow her to watch it as many times as she wishes because it contains content that is suitable for her age group (she is 5). She is now singing the theme song as she plays. I think that indicates a positive endorsement. One thing I enjoyed about this DVD is that it can be popped into the computer and contains a PDF coloring sheet and other printables.

Features include:
Six sing-along songs
The prequel mentioned above
An animated short
The downloadable activities mentioned

The video will be released for purchase on October 13 and will retail for $14.99. You can pre-order a copy on or visit My Little to find out more.
