Personally I buy my daughter Barbie horses. Then for christmas I got her the walking Moxie Girls horses that walk a couple feet and then neigh, she loves them! One was defective and wouldn't walk so we took it back. She has a few McDonald's My Little Ponies that she plays with in the bath tub (my mom collected them for her). She also has the big princess Celestia unicorn MLP. We make fun of how she talks... "I'm sooooo Pretty, don't you think?" "You are pretty too!" LOL My kid thinks she is HILARIOUS and her Barbie horses pick on her!
I had more barbie and shera horses when I was a kid, remember Dallas and Dixie? I still have them in a box somewhere. Had MLP too but yeah, they got "hairdos"! LOL!
While some of the old MLP cartoon story lines were SCARY the new shows are obnoxious! Too randy for my 6 going on 7 year old. She watches Horseland and The Pony Club.
