The My Little Pony Friendship Tour, an experiential roadshow celebrating Hasbro’s iconic girls’s toy brand, My Little Pony, returns to the UK this summer with a refreshed look and feel to celebrate the upcoming release of My Little Pony: The Movie.
The tour will be visiting cities across the country this summer, welcoming fans aboard the toy range’s signature pink double-decker bus, where they will be able to explore Equestria, the magical world of ponies, and celebrate the positive power of this unique children’s brand.
New for 2017, children will have the chance to ‘Get Ponified’ with free cutie-mark face painting at one of the tour’s new Ponification Stations.
Kids will be able to play with the latest toys, watch clips from the new movie, and enjoy a series of unique My Little Pony experiences including creating their own My Little Pony Selfie GIF with scenes from the new movie or favourite locations from the My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic TV show.
Visitors will also be given an exclusive Friendship Points code to use online at the My Little Pony Friendship Club.
