Tired Mommy Approved – Pony Royale
|August 3, 2012||Posted by Sarah under Tired Mommy Approved, Tired Mommy's Tales|
The weekend before the Princess Ponies arrived at our house, Brooke had been taken on her very first horseback ride by her Grandpa & Grandma Marshall. Suffice it to say, she had horses on the brain. So when I let her open up the box without giving her any idea what was inside, she was stoked to see that inside were TWO pretty ponies to play with.
Once we got the horses out of the packages (oh the packaging!), Brooke was totally in love with them. There were so many different ways to dress them up! Each pony comes with two manes and two tails and their saddles, tiaras & mane decoration (there is probably a technical term for that) that you can mix and match. When you add in more ponies, the options grow.
There are 12 Princess Ponies in the collection and each has its own birthstone and comes from a different Kingdom in the land of Pony Royale: Air, Earth, Fire or Water. The ponies we were sent were Harmony, an Earth pony and Sky, and Air pony. Brooke thought it was really cool that one of the ponies from the Water Kingdom was named Brooke too!

At first, Brooke had a little trouble getting the manes on but after she took her time and let me show her, she was having no problem at all. She and I sat for a long time swapping pieces back and forth and seeing the different combinations we could make.
For as independent as Brooke is, playing alone is not one of her strong suits. But if I suggested playing with her new ponies, she’d be off and running and soon I could hear her hilarious dialogue and pretend play between the two ponies. She even had a dance party with them one afternoon!
Which Princess Pony would you like to play with? I think Rosie is my favorite!
