My Little Pony: Equestria Girls – Rainbow Rocks .... Rocks!!!

Do your little ones love My Little Pony? Well, they will love the spin off, My Little Pony Equestria Girls. To get the full effect, check your local listings for the movie My Little Pony: Equestria Girls – Rainbow Rocks. This is not just a movie, it's a musical event with a message of what else, but friendship.

When a new all-girl band comes to Canterlot High, former bad girls herself, Sunset Shimmer fears they have their own plans when they turn a "Mane Event" talent show into a "Battle of the Bands." The Equestria Girls start to see that the Adagio and her band The Dazzling are poisoning friendships all around them with their magic powers of music. That is when they know they must call upon their old friend Twilight Sparkles to come to their aid and help them restore harmony once again. This time around it will not be as easy to defeat their nemeses. They have to look within themselves  to see that they too need to do a little extra in order to stand together as one for a battle of the bands show down. 

My daughter, Abbey, and I stumbled upon the movie My Little Pony: Equestria Girls one day after a My Little Pony episode and just loved it. A bigger thrill came when Abbey learned she would be attending the movie premier of the sequel My Little Pony: Equestria Girls – Rainbow Rocks. It was a family event with my husband and our two daughters ( 22 month old & 4 year old). Abbey was just mesmerized by the movie while my younger, who is a bit too young to truly understand, only understood the power of music as she danced to the music. On the way home and all week Abbey told us all about the movie, as if she were the only one that saw it, just too cute.

As a mom I loved that she enjoyed the movie and understood the message of how important it is to be a good friend. Even more important is the message of forgiveness and not always being perfect. In the first movie Sunshine Shimmer played the villain and in My Little Pony: Equestria Girls – Rainbow Rocks, she is trying to prove that she has changed her ways. This has become my daughters favorite character. She is not perfect, but is trying her best to be a good girl. I loved the character and it just warmed my heart that my daughter felt the same way.

My husband had only one question... 'where are the pony's.' If you don't know the backstory to the Equestria girls here it is: they are the My Little Pony alter selves in a differnt realm, in a colorful human form with a love for music. In the first movie My Little Pony: Equestria Girls, princess Twilight Saprkle came to Equestria to find her missing crown that fell onto the wrong hands. While in Equestria she met a human for of Pinkie Pie, Rainbow Dash, Rarity, Apple Jack and the lovable Fluttershy. 

My Little Pony: Equestria Girls- Rainbow Rocks is a movie about girl power and the power of friendship. I would event call it a musical. I even found myself singing along and looking forward to each song. My 22 month-old had a great time dancing to the music. The movie combines a message of being a good friend by listening to each other through music. A definite movie to put on your little ones To See: list. It also gives you some ideas for the kids Santa List as your Equestrian dolls ca be found in your local Target and Toys r' Us.  If you love these dolls, stay tune for our upcoming Giveaway!
