**WIN** with My Little Pony – The Movie

My Little Pony: The Movie opened in South African cinemas nearly 2 weeks ago. In true My Little Pony fashion, it is a heartwarming tale of adventure, magical characters, colourful worlds, and humour for all ages.

My Little Pony The Movie

And the fun doesn鈥檛 end with the movie. Hasbro has launched a My Little Pony: The Movie range of characters and playsets, now available in South Africa. There’s a Princess Twilight Sparkle figure with Pegasus wings and a responsive unicorn horn; Sea Ponies; a Pinkie Pie Swimming Sea Pony; and even an interactive Castle. Children’s imaginations can be set free as they recreate scenes from the movie at home.

GLITTER & STYLE SEAPONY

Each 6-inch seapony figure has a beautiful mermaid-like tail, and her signature cutie mark on her back fin. Her eyes and wings are detailed with glitter for extra under-the-sea sparkle. Each character – Twilight Sparkle, Fluttershy, and Princess Skystar – includes three underwater-themed accessories and different looks for her long, colorful hair. Each figure sold separately, not intended for water play.

BABY SEAPONY

Baby seaponies and their friends are perfect companions for the Mane Six when they head down to explore Seaquestria. Decorate with Seaquestria-style by sticking the baby seapony figures on smooth surfaces to pretend she’s welcoming visitors down into her undersea world. Imagine creating more stories in Sequestria with these baby seapony friends (each figure sold separately).

Get the kids involved in helping save the Rhino, with the Rhino Coin Bank

Prima Toys and Wildlife ACT have once again come together in support of one of South Africa鈥檚 most iconic and endangered wild creatures 鈥 the Rhino.

Rhino

The two conservation-minded organisations, have worked together in the past to raise funds to help feed and care for baby rhinos, who have been orphaned as a result of prolific poaching. In past years, Prima Toys and Pick n Pay have raised more than R500 000 for Wildlife ACT, through their Baby Rhino and Wild Pals soft toy promotions, all funded by the generous people of South Africa, who through their purchase of these soft toys, donate to the cause.

This year, in support of World Rhino Day (22 September), Prima Toys will be launching 20 000 Rhino Coin Banks into South African toy retailers. These are adorable, soft toy rhino 鈥榩iggy banks鈥, with a plastic interior and a removable stopper to hold cash and coins inside its belly. These will be available for purchase in all leading toy specialist and supermarket stores.

For every purchase of one of these Rhino Coin Banks, Prima Toys will donate R10 to Wildlife ACT, who facilitates the funding of various organisations that care for and feed baby orphaned rhinos, until they are old enough to be released back into the wild.

鈥淧rima Toys hopes to raise awareness of the plight of rhinos among younger generations, and have guaranteed a contribution of R200 000 to this very worthy cause.鈥

– Chiquita Patrizi, Marketing Executive, Prima Toys.

In addition to this funding, any money that a child saves in his or her Rhino Coin Bank, can be donated back to Wildlife ACT 鈥 through their 鈥楧onations鈥 portal on https://www.givengain.com/cc/primatoys/. Prima Toys will in turn donate 10 x Toy Hamper prizes in a 鈥楲ucky Draw鈥 competition to five boys and five girls who make a donation through the GivenGain website.

Rhino coin bank

Wildlife ACT is a registered non-profit organisation, staffed by conservationists, dedicated to preserving endangered wildlife within South Africa. The funds will be used to help sponsor the teams that are sent out to find and rescue the orphaned rhinos in the wild, the formula (milk) and feed needed to sustain the baby rhinos, and the upgrade of security at the bomas where these orphans are held.

鈥淒espite a small drop in poaching numbers announced by the Department of Environmental Affairs recently, our rhinos are still under threat. Not only do we need to keep up the fight against poaching, we desperately need to ensure that the baby rhinos that are orphaned as a result, are rescued and adequately cared for. Without their mothers, orphaned rhinos would sadly die without our assistance.鈥

Get ready to play with Prima Top Toys

At a media launch in July, Prima Toys announced their Top Toys for December 2017. These are the toys that kids will be gazing at longingly in toy stores during the school holidays/festive season. Imagine how cool you’d be if you surprised them with any of these even before they give you those puppy dog eyes, or drop helpful hints. 馃榾

Before we get to the toys, I have to tell you a little about the launch, held at The Bryanston Country Club. On arrival the lovely ladies from MatsiMela Home Spa treated us to hand massages, as we sipped on champagne (how fabulous? 馃槈).

Of course, being the kind of people who enjoy spoiling others, meant that MatsiMela also had gifts waiting for us on our way out that day. 馃檪 I received the Rooibos & Honey Body Butter and Fizz Ball. The scent of these products – oh my gosh! So beautiful!

Warren Murray from MamaMagic, The Baby Expo spoke about equal parenting, highlighting how dads should be as involved in raising and caring for their kids as moms are. During his talk he also mentioned how the few minutes you take to play is so appreciated by your child, and it’s those moments that become treasured memories.

Dr Shireen Thomas-Stark told us that when parents buy toys for their kids, they’re actually “investing money” because of the many benefits of play such as promoting creativity and problem solving.

Finally it was time for the real fun – Prima Toys marketing executive Chiquita Patrizi revealed Top Toys 2017! 馃榾

Shopkins Happy Places

Little ones can turn any space into a happy place with the Shopkins Happy Places range. The largest set in the Happy Places range is the Happy Home set that includes several Puppy Parlour Petkins and a Lil鈥 Shoppie. Other playsets include Kitty Kitchen, Dreamy Bear, Bathing Bunny, Slumber Bear Party, Bunny Laundry, Mousy Hangout, and plenty more. There is so much more to collect for the Shopkins fan.

Little Live Pets Surprise Chicks

This one got everyone (each one of us an adult 馃構) super excited! There was one Surprise Chick on each table, and watching them hatch and then move cutely around the table had us oohing, aahing, and giggling so much, that it took a while for everyone to settle again. For a few minutes, we were kids again, and it was such fun. Thank you Prima Toys for reminding us of the power of play.

There are five Chicks to collect: Patty the Party Chick, Blossy the Daisy Chick, Tilly the Dancing Chick, Beaky the Rainbow Chick and Henny Penny the Sunny Chick. You won鈥檛 know which Chick you鈥檝e got till they hatch. The fun doesn鈥檛 end with the first hatch though; your Chick can hatch over and over again for endless fun. Fancy some sweet Chick chirping? Simply pet your Chick, the more you pet it the more it will chirp. So cute!

Elena of Avalor

Princess Elena is bold, confident and kind. With the help of family, friends, and magical flying creatures called jacquins, she must now rule the kingdom as Crown Princess, until she is old enough to be Queen. The Disney Elena of Avalor range of toys includes dolls and accessories, perfect for lots of fun roleplay.

L.O.L Surprise Tots Ball

Once again, we had the chance to play, with an adorable L.O.L being passed around each table, for each of us to unwrap and discover. First you get a secret message, then collectable stickers, a feeding bottle, doll shoes, an outfit, an accessory, and then a fantastic doll. There are forty five dolls to collect, each with their unique accessories.

Ben 10

There is also a range of exciting playsets including the Rustbucket Deluxe Playset, and the Ben 10 Transform & Battle Set, which features a favourite alien along with a gauntlet mask to match. The range also includes wearable accessories that will take roleplay to a whole new level of fun!

Fingerlings Baby Monkeys

These guys will hang on to your fingers and tell you how they are feeling in 50 different ways. Listen to them making near real monkey sounds and watch them blink their eyes and turn their heads. Their hands and feet have a grip surface to hang upside down just like real monkeys.

Rubiks

The new range Rubiks includes Rubik鈥檚 Build IT solve IT, which comes with all the necessary parts to build your own cube (you can finally solve this 40 year mystery); Rubik鈥檚 Race, a two player game to get your fingers and brain working – the aim is to be the first player to make the 3×3 centre match pattern and the Rubik鈥檚 Tower – the new twist on the original cube, even more challenging than the original cube.

20 Questions

20 Questions is a classic for the whole family. Test your knowledge of people, places, things and important dates, and enjoy seeing everyone racking their brain trying to figure out the correct answers.

And there you have it, just some of #PrimaTopToys for the coming festive season.

We were gifted with goodie bags once the program was over, and it was a bag that made my little person really happy. One of the prezzies inside was her first ever pack of Shopkins, and now she wants to collect them all (they are super cute, so I totally get it).
