My Little Pony is still a big favourite in our house. Having reviewed the Equestria Crystal Empire Castle previously and Sugar Cube Corner, we couldn’t wait to review the My Little Pony Princess Twilight Sparkle and Spike the Dragon Friendship Duet set. We had seen the adverts on TV and loved how they sang together.
The Princess Twilight Sparkle and Spike the Dragon Friendship Duet has been released ahead of the My Little Pony The Movie which hits cinemas in October 2017.
Princess Twilight Sparkle sings alone and duets with Spike. Hold Spike to Twilight’s face to hear them sing together and press Twilights cutie mark to hear her talk and sing. She has 10 other phrases along with her duet.
At first, we found it quite awkward to get Spike into the right position to sing along with Twilight. But you can hear them loud and clear when you get it. (watch out video for how to hold them). You have to physically keep Spike so that he is touching Twilight at the mouth. It is a magnet that connects them and allows them to sing together.
The speaker is in Twilight so without her, Spike doesn’t sing along. Twilight will prompt you by saying things like practice makes perfect if you didn’t manage to connect them. We heard this a lot! As well as the singing Twilight does also have a few phrases and will sing alone but asks for Spike to sing along as music is better with friends! By holding Twilight’s cutie mark, you can change her from on to demo. She will giggle when she changes mode too.
With an RRP of £26.99 duetting Twilight and Spike is a big hit with my 4-year-old niece who is just getting into My Little Pony and Olivia. The duet is really cute and is now stuck in my head permanently. It is tricky as you will see in the video below to get them to duet and you can’t really move or separate them whilst they sing or you lose Spike. It would have been nice to not have to be so specific as to where you hold them together to connect especially for younger kids. They may need help to get the duet going.
But it seemed to be a bigger issue for me than them as the girls quite happily played without the stressing over getting the duet going.
