Equestria Girls Happy Meal (Toy Review)

Hey all. Today I’m bringing back a popular section of this blog, Toy Reviews! For this post, I’ll be doing reviews of two dolls in the new My Little Pony Equestria Girls Happy Meal line!

 

Basic Information
My Little Pony Equestria Girls Happy Meal
Articulation Count: 1 (swivel head)
Released 2016

Let’s start with one of my favorite characters, Fluttershy!

Before anything else, let me just say that I can’t remember the last time I bought a Happy Meal but for sure, I was in elementary school. All I remember is that the toys got sort of a decrease in quality as the years went by.

BUT this Fluttershy doll was surprisingly good in quality! I actually prefer it over the Barbie-sized Equestria Girl dolls I’d often see at Toys R Us. The plastic is hard and the detail on the mold is great considering it’s a Happy Meal toy. Look at her boots, the strands on her hair, and the rough texture on her skirt!

At the back, Fluttershy has a long pink ponytail that curls in a spiral. Her hair doesn’t have any product on it so it can get into a mess if not cared for properly. She also has wings which are secured in place by metal bolts.

Fluttershy’s arms and legs don’t have any articulation on them but they’re made of hard plastic that won’t break with rough play.

Like all Happy Meals, Fluttershy came with a plastic bag. She also came with a sparkly yellow comb featuring her Cutie Mark. It’s made of a very durable plastic so brushing tangled hair won’t be a problem.

 

Let’s proceed to the other doll I got which is another favorite character of mine: Twilight Sparkle!

Twilight Sparkle has her bangs swept over and her signature pink streak. In terms of details, she seems to have more basing on her pink bow, wavy folds on her textured skirt, and the details on her blouse.

Like Fluttershy, she has her Cutie Mark painted on her face.

Twilight’s hair is also up in a ponytail that ends with a spiral curl. Like Fluttershy, she doesn’t have any product on her hair so it can get messy easily.

Twilight also comes with a blue comb with her sparkly Cutie Mark engraved on the handle.

 

And finally, here they are next to each other.

Fluttershy stays up pretty well without any doll stand. Twilight Sparkle can stand up too but in this particular doll’s case, she has to have support or some sort of base.

Overall, I think these toys would be a great and cheaper alternative to those pricier Equestria Girls Barbie-sized dolls at toy stores. These dolls surprised me of how durable they are considering they’re just Happy Meal toys. I can see them surviving rough play among kids.

  1. Oh I remember these. I think we had em at the McDonalds I work at a year ago or so. I think I have a few actually. Can’t remember if I bought any of them. I usually buy some when we get the pony stuff. XD These and the pony ones actually aren’t too bad looking considering. Sometimes they look more accurate (mane wise and stuff).

    1. Oh yes I heard they were released in other countries previously. Here, they were only released a few weeks ago!

      I love MLP! I think they look great considering they’re just Happy Meal toys that come free when you buy food haha
