about our reviews:
All reviews at Edutaining Kids are independent, impartial reviews. Children's video and DVD reviews are designed to help parents and caregivers decide which movies and videos are right for their kids. Evaluations and ratings are based on factors that include educational and entertainment value, originality, and age-appropriateness.

My Little Pony: A Very Minty Christmas is the first DVD premiere for the My Little Pony series, and it's fantastic. Young My Little Pony fans will thoroughly enjoy the engaging story line of the feature episode, the gorgeous graphics, and the musicals. Parents will find the content entirely age-appropriate, warm, and positive. There are no "bad guys" or over-stimulating scenes in the movie--only socially conscious, positive messages.

The story revolves around Minty, a little pony who is as well-meaning as she is clumsy. She accidentally breaks the "Here Comes Christmas Candy Cane"--a special candy cane that is a Ponyville Christmas tradition. The glittering candy cane is ceremoniously placed on top of the tallest Christmas tree in the village every year, and it's designed to attract Santa to Ponyville. As such, Minty fears that Santa won't pay her home town a visit, and that she has ruined Christmas for her friends. After considering playing Santa herself, she scraps her plans and instead embarks on a bigger adventure--to the North Pole.

The DVD edition includes two bonus sing-alongs (see picture below) and a bonus episode, entitled Dancing in the Clouds. The feature movie runs for approximately 66 minutes.

Social Skills/Messages: This DVD promotes friendliness and forgiveness. There are no "bad guys" or over-stimulating scenes in the movie--only socially conscious, positive messages.

Best For: Ages 2-6.
