If you grew up in the 80's like me, you likely played with My Little Pony. In fact, my mom has my old ponies at her house that Monkey & Lil Tank love to play with. Brush their hair, prance them around, just lots of pretend play which helps build their learning skills including how to share and work together, further developing that sisterly bond.
So imagine our excitement when we received the newest My Little Pony product on the market to review. It's called My Little Pony Equestria Girls Dolls with Accessories. There are several different dolls from which to choose, all rocking the latest styles. Each comes with a colorful outfit and shoes and of course, various accessories. We received the DJ Pon-3 doll and she is ROCKIN'! Brightly colored from her head to her toes. Literally. You can also customize her dress with the included neon markers and stencils. Monkey & Lil Tank also used the markers to put make-up on the doll. Don't worry, it washes off very easily. But there are so many things you can do with this doll.
Because DJ Pon-3 is so colorful, we decided to incorporate learning these specific shades into our play with her. Monkey & Lil Tank already know their colors but we thought that by being actively involved in the pretend play with this doll, we could also re-enforce that information without them actually knowing. Watch the video below to see if it works.
TOP 3 things we like about MY LITTLE PONY EQUESTRIA GIRLS Dolls with Accessories, DJ Pon-3:
- Her brightly colored outfit, hair & legs. Opportunity to teach colors to children.
- Included markers & stencils. Opportunity to improve writing/drawing skills and gross motor skills with how to hold a writing utensil.
- Her microphone set. Opportunity for pretend play to include singing. DJ Pon-3 has belted out a few Frozen songs into the microphone sung beautifully by Monkey & Lil Tank.
