My Little Pony – My Princess Twilight Sparkle Review

When I was a little girl, I remember having lots of My Little Ponies to play with – I was a very lucky girl. And now, it’s my youngest daughter who has fallen in love with these magical ponies too. I always think it’s lovely when a toy keeps being fallen in love with, generation after generation.

Annabelle was recently {and very kindly} sent a My Princess Twilight Sparkle from Hasbro, to review – which is exciting because My Little Pony: The Movie is due to be released this month and toy shelves are stacked with the most amazing Equestria fueled range!  

My Magical Princess Twilight Sparkle is an impressive toy and her features, are:-

  • She responds to sound & touch
  • She will say 90 different phrases, tells stories and shares spells. 
  • You can touch her horn for her to talk about her spells
  • She has posable legs
  • Her horn lights up & flashes
  • She has Pegasus wings that move

As you can see, Princess Twilight isn’t little at all – in fact, she’s huge! We absolutely love how interactive she is, from lifting her hoof and tapping it on the ground, to fluttering her eyelashes and moving her head in a very sweet & realistic way. 

If you press the star button on her hoof, Princess Twilight will share friendship advice, sing songs and tell you stories of her time in Equestria. If you touch the horn on her head, it will light up as she tells you about her magical spells. 

Princess Twilight comes with a Tiara that you can remove and even place on your own head if you’re feeling especially majestic one afternoon! My 4yo feels majestic every day, so she loves wearing it! She has the long, colourful locks which can be brushed and plaited, as well as her tail. 

Princess Twilight is posable, which is a nice feature {you can have her stand or make her sit} however I have to be honest – I’m a little disappointed that it doesn’t walk. I For the price of it, you’d expect it to walk in my opinion but my daughter seems to be content with listening to Twilight tell her stories, tap her hoof and sing her songs.

This product does not come with batteries and requires 4 x C sized batteries – but those are available from all toy stores {and even local pound stores!} so it’s not too big of a bother. For a toy this size I wouldn’t expect it to come with batteries supplied, however when considering the cost of the product, maybe it should? 

All in all, my daughter loves her Princess Twilight Sparkle friend. She adores sitting and listening to her stories of friendship and sharing her knowledge of spells. It’s a really fun interactive toy but…is it worth the £119.99 price tag? {This is the cheapest I have found it to be online} £119.99 makes for a very extravagant toy and there is no doubting the amazing work that has gone into making this so life like for the little fans.

But for me personally, to pay so much money for a toy – I’d want it to walk – I think if it walked it would make me want to pay the money for it. But if your son or daughter is a hardcore My Little Pony fan, then they will love this Princess Twilight Sparkle. It’s hard not too.

    My not so little girl (16 now) would have loved this when she was little. She loved My Little Pony. It looks wonderful, and has lots of functions. I’m just concerned about the price tag. I simply wouldn’t pay that much for a toy like this, lovely or not.

    Little pony are one of the icons that kids really love especially the little girls. What a great way to give this as a present. Looks like she really is soooo happy with the little pony.

    She looks really cute but I’m recoiling in horror at the £119.99 price tag. I think if I had kids that were hoping for this toy I’d have to leave them disappointed. It’s great that it’s interactive but I’m with you, for that price I feel like it should be able to walk.
