My Little Pony Princess Cadance Animated Storyteller Review (KIDdesigns)

What It Is

KIDdesigns' My Little Pony Princess Cadance Animated Storyteller brings one of Pony fan's favorite pony characters to life with this animated stuffed animal, allowing fans to engage with the character as she reads one of the four included stories to you.

To start interacting with Princess Cadance, make sure you switch the toy out of demo mode. The On/Off switch is located beneath a Velcro flap on the toy's belly. Then press one of the buttons on Candance's hoof to begin play. Press the book button to go into story mode. There are four included stories, which tell the story of Princess Cadance's wedding to Shining Armor. Princess Candace will announce which numbered story will be read. Kids can listen or grab the included storybook to read along. As she tells the story Cadance's mouth will move. There will also be a "ping" sound effect when it's time to turn each page. If you want to move on to another story, press the book button again. Press the play button to alternate between pause and play. Press the forward button to skip to the next page or press back button to repeat the current page or go back a page.

When storytime is over but you want to keep interacting with Princess Cadance, switch into music mode but pressing the music icon on her hoof. Cadance will sing songs, including the My Little Pony Friendship is Magic theme song.

Is It Fun?

Both the stories and music from the show are two elements that My Little Pony fans love, so we think this toy will further bring those elements to life for fans. The stories are fun to listen to and the turn-page prompts also make it easy for young readers to follow along.
