**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.


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 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.

A little visit to Boulders Beach

During our trip to Cape Town in June, we introduced Zee to some very well dressed friends. I’m talking about the the cutest little guys in tuxedos you ever will see; the endangered African penguins at Boulders Beach, near Simon’s Town.

Zee loved watching them walk waddle around freely. A stroll on the boardwalk was also a winner with our little explorer. She got to see so many penguins, and spotted a few penguin eggs too.

Oh, and she got to meet a few gorgeous supermodels who didn’t mind striking a pose for the camera – seriously, just look at these two! 馃憞馃徏馃榾
