And so it is the kids break up for half-term, well they’ve been working five days a week for like six hours a day for, well, six weeks or so, they must be shattered. So, any plans for entertaining the junior troops as yet anyone? Holidays to far-flung destinations, caravan trip closer to home perhaps? Nothing on the books as yet eh….ok, fear now, My Little Pony The Movie is out – That’s one rainy afternoon sorted. There is a decent list of talent voicing over the characters in the film, lots of high pitched ones thankfully interspersed with booming evil overlord style ones to ease the impact on your eardrums. Now I’m no Brony but really don’t mind A Little Pony or two and I have a particular penchant for all things Unicorn and so the toy range from Hasbro certainly has my attention, these two pieces in particular.

My Little Pony Twilight Sparkle Spike the Dragon Duet
