Disclosure / Disclaimer: I received this DVD, free of charge, from Shout Factory and Hasbro Studios, 
for review purposes on this blog. No other compensation, monetary or in kind, has been received or implied for this post. Nor was I told how to post about it



If you;re like me, your little girl has seen the commercials already
 and started begging you for this DVD!

Unfortunately, it doesn't come out until the 24th!

But Miss Grace was very surprised (and pleased) to see it in her Valentine's Day back!

Synopsis:

If you lived in Equestria, what would your cutie mark be? 
Well, the Cutie Mark Crusaders can help you find out in this new DVD!


In EQUESTRIA, obtaining a CUTIE MARK is an important coming-of-age moment for a young Pony. After all, Ponies acquire their CUTIE MARKS only after they discover a unique characteristic about 
themselves, setting them apart from all other Ponies. So when Sweetie Belle, Scootaloo and Apple Bloom meet, they instantly become friends and make it their mission to find their CUTIE MARKS! They are The Cutie Mark Crusaders!

My Little Pony – Friendship Is Magic: Adventures Of The Cutie Mark Crusader episodes include The Cutie Mark Chronicles, The Cutie Pox, Flight To The Finish, Pinkie Pride, and Twilight Time.

The value packed DVD includes a fun new sing-along and coloring sheets.


And now for a video clip!


Review:

Miss Grace and I have had MANY discussions on Cutie Marks, as part of our discussions on anti-bullying. I love that the show allows each pony to find out what is unique about themselves and via their cutie marks, share that with the world. I also love that it isn't always what the pony thinks it will be. This teaches kids to look for their true gifts, not superficial ones! Miss Grace just wishes kids could have them too!

The video includes some of Miss Grace's favorite episodes, and the addition of the the coloring sheets was a fun way to add to the experience. She loved the sing-a-long and can't wait to share it with her friends! This is a sweet series and this DVD will be equally at home in your child's Easter basket this holiday season (if you can wait that long to give it to them! LOL). We highly recommend it!


Extra: 

The fun does not stop with the DVD! PlayDate Digital has a new Cutie Pox Storybook App, on itunes.

 This interactive story book allows you to enter the world of Equestria for an adventure full of excitement, humor and friendship! Do you remember how hard it was to be patient as a little kid?  In this interactive storybook, Apple Bloom takes matters into her own hooves and ends up with the Cutie Pox!  Starring the Cutie Mark Crusaders, the My Little Pony: Cutie Pox App teaches reading and patience.  Getting your cutie mark is part of grown up in the My Little Pony’s home of Equestria.  Earning a cutie mark signifies that a pony has discovered his or her special talent and can use that talent to shine and make a difference.  Well, Apple Bloom, Sweetie Belle and Scootaloo can’t wait to grow up and discover who they really are.  

The release of  "Cutie Mark Crusaders" marks the first of a series of planned collaborations between PlayDate Digital and Shout! Factory to cross-promote My Little Pony Friendship is Magic stories and 
media.
