Cute, colorful - my daughter is entranced.

"This is yet another very cute Little Pony production. It has just about everything little girls love: rainbow colors, cute ponies with big pretty eyes having parties, exchanging gifts, and playing a lot - my daughter has watched this about five times in the last three days, so, there's proof of its appeal. I know there will come a time when she no longer watches these, but I hope I always remember how her face looked when she did."
Brighly coloured, simple story - some nice songs

"My 2-3 year old girl adores this DVD, she loves ponys at the moment and My little Pony Princess Promenade seems to be the only thing she wants to see - even my 4 year old likes it.
There are three stories in one, in ponyville they have discovered a dragon called Spike under the castle - Wysteria has picked the flower he was growing and so she is now the Princess of Ponyville and spike must protect her - or course thereis nothing to protect her from.
Then there is the Princess Promenade - a spring parade where all the ponys build floats.
Finally there is the Birthday where all the pony's make a charm for a charm bracelet (all dependent on the colour and type of pony they are of course.
Kind of innocuous fun - there are songs on it which my girls enjoy. The plot is not at all complex - and although I don't know if the girls really understand the plot anyway, they enjoy the colour, the songs, the simple animation and the simple set up scenes.
As an adult I don't really enjoy this, it is just too innocuous. There is little in here to really enjoy, however if my kids were rating this it would be a solid 5 - for me it is a 3 - they like it, I find it too unstructured and badly written, badly voiced to be a really good movie which we will enjoy for years."
Definitely the best G3 film so far :-)

"I have been a My Little Pony fan since they first came out in the 80's. And I have been collecting the newest generation of ponies and MLP-themed merchandise to add to my old collection.
I have all the cartoons and movies so far from G3, and the first few were quite corny IMHO, but they got progressively better.
The Princess Promenade has a good story line that kept even me (a 26-year-old woman lol) interested to see what happens next. The animation quality was well-done (except for expected little mistakes here and there) the songs were not annoying like most other cartoon singing, and the characters were very likeable.
The only thing still lacking in the G3 movies is some kind of enemy. My favorite episodes from the 80's were the pilot and special which had very well-done bad guys while still not being 'violent'. I think adding a few darker characters would add alot of contrast and interest to the storylines.
One thing that disappointed me in Princess Promenade was 'Spike the Dragon'. I remember Spike in the 80's as a cute, scruffy-voiced baby dragon with such a great character to him. I do not like the way he was drawn in this film, or his 'proper' personality. I miss the good ol' 80s Spike. So that was why I gave it 4 instead of 5- Spike was a favorite character of mine in the old cartoons, and it was upsetting to see how they changed him. But it was still a great film, and those who are new to MLP wont notice or care about the change.
The previous G3 film 'A Very Minty Christmas' is also very cute, so check that out as well.
I look forward to the next film when we finally have unicorns- especially since that probably means there'll be unicorn MLP toys released as well!"
One of the best new MLP movies yet!!

"The quality and story line of this DVD overall are MUCH improved over previous G3 animated films. The music was also great! (there was still the usual pony mix-ups in animation though -- pegasus ponies missing their wings throughout most of the film, etc) But overall it is very enjoyable!
Really looking forward the new upcoming movie "THE RUNAWAY RAINBOW" due out Fall 2006, featuring UNICORNS!! ;) There is a preview for the new movie on this DVD.
We bought our DVD at Superstore, it was only $13.00 CDN and came with a free "Bonus My Little Pony Wrist Wrap", which is quite adorable!
So, no idea why Amazon.ca is charging so much money for this DVD -- and saying it takes 4-6 weeks is crazy, considering it was released in stores across the city on February 7!!
Anyway, I highly recommend this DVD to any MLP fan, or for children."
