Discovery Family to Air "MY LITTLE PONY: A Very Minty Christmas" on December 13th

To kick of their holiday line-up, Discovery Family will be showing "MY LITTLE PONY: A VERY MINTY CHRISTMAS" on December 13th at 7PM ET/ 6 PM CT. While this special stars the G3 incarnation of MY LITTLE PONY, instead of the current G4 "Friendship is Magic" line, it still has its merits and will be a fun watch for all.

 Did you know that the title of character, Minty, is voiced by Tabitha St. Germain who currently voices the character of Rarity in the MY LITTLE PONY: Friendship is Magic series? Have fun watching Pinkie Pie and Rainbow Dash in their previous G3 incarnations! With Ponies, Santa, and a song about Christmas Socks, this cute holiday special is sure to be a hit with your little ones.

In addition to MY LITTLE PONY: A VERY MINTY CHRISTMAS, Discovery Family’s special holiday programming includes the premieres of LITTLEST PET SHOP (Season 3) “Winter Wonder” on December 13 at 12:30 p.m. and TRANSFORMERS RESCUE BOTS (Season 2) “The Riders of Winter” on December 13 at 1 p.m.

Cyber Monday Pony Deals!

Toys R Us is currently running a 20% off sale on all POP figures. This seems to include both he Hasbro Pony Pop figures as well as the Funko Pony Pop figures. Plus, you can qualify for free shipping on all purchases over $49.

I know I am still missing a few of the Hasbro Pony Pop items, so I guess it is time to head to the Gigantic Mess Room Pony Room and do a quick inventory!

You will find a slew of other MLP Cyber Monday discounts through Toys R Us (plush, regular brushables, minis, and random merchandise.)
The two things I added to my cart that I'm most excited about are these:
Trixie with Light Up Horn: On sale for $18.74
Rarity with Light up Horn: On sale for $18.74

They are just strange looking. Who thought it was a good idea to put a big hard plastic light up horn on plush ponies?! Plus, I haven't yet seen these available in person.
Target is having a Buy One Get One 50% off sale on MLP, but their stock isn't anything too new.
Kmart is the Cyber Monday winner as they are having a 40% online sale for all MLP and Equestria Girls. Their stock also includes the Rainbow Rocks Stage and these new packs for $8.09 which is the best price I have seen on them so far:

Happy Shopping!

Christmas Decorating:My Little Pony Style!

We have five inches of snow outside. Instead of hunkering down under a pile of blankets, I decided it was time to break out the Christmas decorations. We have three trees to house all of our ornaments: one for my husband's Star Wars ornaments, one for the MY LITTLE PONY ornaments, and the main tree which is a hodgepodge of Hallmark ornaments gathered and gifted over the years.

The PONY tree is undoubtedly my favorite and I'm always so happy to unpack them each year and enjoy them during the Christmas Season. Out of all of my MLP merchandise items, I feel like the Christmas ornaments have the most purpose because it's not like I brush my teeth with a vintage Heart Throb battery operated toothbrush or use a G1 duffle as my gym bag.

I've added some new additions to the PONY tree this year including this awesome Fluttershy holiday light set! I picked this set up at Toys R Us and love it. My PONY tree is only four foot tall, so I only purchased one set and it was just the right size. The packaging claims that the light set is approved for indoor and outdoor use, so I suppose someone could go nuts and Fluttershy their house for the holidays, but it won't be me.

My mother-in -law gifted me the Hallmark Cotton Candy ornament this year and I've picked up a handful of new G4 ornaments as well that will be finding their way onto the tree as soon as I remember where I put them...

Do you have a MLP Christmas tree or do you use Ponies to decorate for the holidays? If so, I'd love to hear about it and see pictures if you have them!

Happy Birthday, Bonnie!

A few years ago, I had the privilege of meeting Bonnie Zacherle, the creator of MY LITTLE PONY. She is a wonderfully funny, talented, and sweet person and I feel lucky to call her a friend. Her innovative idea of small cuddly ponies with brushable manes shaped my childhood and those of millions of others around the world.

While playing a table topics game with my extended family during the Christmas of 2012, I was asked to name three people (living or deceased) with whom I would like to spend a day. I instantly answered Bonnie Zacherle and Walt Disney, but was at a loss for a third.

A few months later in April of 2013, I was given the opportunity to visit Bonnie Zacherle in her home. I was beyond excited to be spending the day with her, chatting about the history of MY LITTLE PONY, and even getting to see and hold her original PONY prototype models. I don’t think I’ve ever smiled so big in a photo!

Since that first meeting, I’ve had the pleasure of hosting Bonnie at the 2013 and 2014 MY LITTLE PONY Fair and traveling with her to New York last spring. I feel grateful to have met Bonnie and I look forward to many more visits and chats in the future. She is an amazing lady and deserves to be celebrated.

Happy Birthday, Ms. Bonnie Zacherle! I hope you have a lovely day.
