Update on MLP crisis

Many of you chimed in with your opinion on the My Little Pony Crisis of 2014, and for that, I thank you! Your input was helpful- and I also felt a little vindicated that other people thought the dolls were freaky, too.

Johnny and I went to Target while they were running a Black Friday/Cyber Monday/some kind of post-Thanksgiving sale on toys. They were offering buy one, get one half-off on selected toy brands, one of which was My Little Pony.

I hemmed and hawed over what to buy. Which pony was the uncool pony no one really likes? Was it possible this kid already had a Rainbow Dash toy?

I ended up getting both a doll and a pony. I chose Fluttershy (mostly because Target had both a doll and pony), who seems pretty chill and not totally lame.



We also found some My Little Pony socks, a cool horse t-shirt, and all the other things on the girl's wishlist (a CD player, a jewelry making kit, clothing). 

I was happy we could donate our time and money to (hopefully) improving a child's Christmas! But next year, I think we'll just go for donating lots of toys to the Salvation Army instead of stressing out over a specific kid!

You rock! And btw... should have totes been on local news. MLP crisis '14 indeed.

I do have to ask...what were they thinking with equineman hybrids?

Pony > Doll. ;) You chose wisely!

OMG. My little pony! I had a million of them when I was a kid. *Obsessed*.

While their overall conformation has greatly improved, I have to say the giant bug eyes kinda freak me out.

As a My Little Pony fan... The dolls creep me out. Not going to lie. I've been dying to go back and watch the original MLP but I can't find it!

When all else fails, BUY ALL THE THINGS. That little girl is going to be so happy!!

Fluttershy is probably my favorite.
I kinda think the hybrid dolls are adorably weird, like a certain corgi, maybe? ;)
I have to admit I had a conversation about MLP with my niece and got a wee bit excited over trying to find the right version of Pinkie Pie to buy for her.
