An incredibly fun new feature: The Pony Creator has just launched! Join the world of Equestria by personalizing your own shareable pony.
Modify the look of the pony: Body, color, eyes, mane, features and accessories. Next comes a Mad Libs-style quiz to determine your pony name. There are dozens of first and last name options, for thousands of possible combinations such as “Little Luck,” “Celebration Pop,” and “Rose Honeysuckle.” Finally, select and customize a cutie mark. Best of all, once you’re done there are some hilarious share options!
I am super excited to take my girls to see it in theaters! Stay tuned to a giveaway we have coming soon for My Little Pony: The Movie.
