**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).

The days are warmer, the sun is shining brightly, and pretty flowers dance in the soft breeze. It’s the perfect time of year to spend more time outside, where little ones can expend some of their boundless energy! 馃檪

Barni Bear

It’s also the perfect time to treat them to a picnic. I don’t know about your kids, but mine would have a picnic everyday if she could. So you can just imagine the excitement when she saw the Barni press drop which arrived last week! Bear shaped cakes with a chocolate filling, and a cute picnic basket – her day was made. 馃榿

Barni sponge cakes fit perfectly into the hands of little ones, and are a lovely treat for children ages three and up. Parents can happily add them to the picnic basket, knowing that they contain no colourants, preservatives or trans-fats. The spongy bear cake, with its soft milk or chocolate flavoured filling is a yummy treat that also encourages imagination, exploring, learning and growing.

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

– Johan Maree, Wildlife ACT
