I received My Little Pony: A Very Minty Christmas DVD in order to facilitate an honest review.
MY LITTLE PONY: A VERY MINTY CHRISTMAS
It was the 1980’s when all things were “rad” and the original My Little Pony was the rage from 1983 to 1995 and inspired animated specials, an animated feature length film, and four animated television series. It’s still a brand that’s going strong, having been a favorite of our now 19 year old when she was small and still a favorite with Miss M!
This holiday, grab the tinsel and stockings! Just in time to celebrate with My Little Pony: A Very Minty Christmas releasing on DVD October 8, 2013 from Shout! Factory Kids in collaboration with Hasbro Studios! Originally released in 2005, A Very Minty Christmas is the first film to be released from Shout! Factory’s new My Little Pony Classic Movies reissue program, which will make favorite titles available to fans once again.
The “Here Comes Christmas Candy Cane” is an important part of Ponyville — it’s the beacon that shows jolly old Santa Claus the way to the town as he makes his holiday rounds each year. But when Minty accidentally breaks it, uh-oh! It looks like Ponyville is destined to have a bleak holiday season. Minty is determined to do anything to save Christmas for her Pony friends while they, in turn, band together to try and cheer up their despondent friend. Together, they all discover that Christmas can come anyway, wrapped in the love of good friends and the oversized heart of one little clumsy, minty-green Pony!
The My Little Pony brand has been beloved for three decades, and is now more popular than ever. My Little Pony: A Very Minty Christmas is a gift everypony will love!
