Pony Tails!

I've been watching a lot of "My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic" lately. I don't think I like it nearly as much as a lot of the nerd set -- you won't catch me declaring myself a "brony" or joining MLP fan communities -- but it is a cute show and the characters are endearing enough that I've picked up a couple of the toys and plan to grab a few more. I've also bought a couple cheaper not-MLP toys, as seen above! Lanard's Pony Tails Collection offerings may not have the MLP name, but -- unlike some other Lanard me-too lines (compare Lanard's The Corps figures to Hasbro's G.I. Joes) -- they're largely on par with the Hasbro toys in terms of quality. Brand names and character backgrounds notwithstanding, an adorable soft plastic pony with rooted hair and a swivel neck is an adorable soft plastic pony with rooted hair and a swivel neck.

      I KNOW! I just picked up another actual MLP today. You'll love her name: Twilight Sparkle. XD

        Does she sparkle? XD And you know, I have to say I thought Rainbow Flash was a boy until watching the entire episode where she finally decided on the tortoise for her pet.

          I wish! Not too many of the actual figures sparkle, sadly. (I think Princess Luna does... but then she's supposed to be kinda scary on the show, so the toy sparkling really doesn't make much sense. KINDA LIKE THE IDEA OF VAMPIRES SPARKLING IN GENERAL.) The Pony Tails Strawberry Vine sparkles a bit, though!

          And yes, Rainbow Dash is pretty butch. I think some reviewer actually criticized the show because it cast the lesbian in the stereotypical tomboy role... except Rainbow Dash (and most of the ponies, save Rarity) hasn't shown any romantic interest in any pony one way or the other. So that criticism seems kinda ridiculous! XD
