New My Little Pony range launches at Argos

Published on: August 10th, 2017

Latest range of toys and accessories has launched in advance of October movie release.

My Little Pony: The Movie, which is released on 20th October, will see Twilight Sparkle, Applejack, Rainbow Dash, Pinkie Pie, Fluttershy and Rarity embark on a journey to save Ponyville from an evil dark force. Favourite movie moments can now be recreated with over 30 new products available at Argos, including character figurines, playsets and movie scene collections.

The Pinkie Pie Swimming Seapony can be placed in water to swim on her own. Underwater, her tail sparkles and glows. Spike the Dragon and Princess Twilight Sparkle come in a duo set and will serenade each other when held together, while the Canterlot and Seaquestria Castle allows fans to place the figures on the slide or in the bubble-shaped elevator and have them ride from Canterlot down to the kingdom of Seaquestria.

The new My Little Pony products at Argos join a wider My Little Pony range which includes lunch boxes, backpacks and pencil cases.

Linzi Walker, chief toy buyer, at Argos said: “We love this new range of My Little Pony toys. In a year of blockbuster animated film releases, it’s great to offer children the chance to enjoy PonyVille beyond the movie screen. Plus, it’s an incredible 35 years since My Little Pony toys were first launched – and with the trend for nostalgia continuing, I’m sure many grown-ups will enjoy them just as much.”
