Recently I was introduced to a new website in I’ll be honest and tell you that it’s the name of the website that caught my attention. The second thing that caught my eye is the awesome Rainbow Dash backpack that is exclusive to their website.

I was offered a chance to check out the backpack along with few other items and when the packages came, it felt like a My Little Pony Christmas! The backpack isn’t small and child-sized like I had first thought. It’s a full-sized backpack and capable of carrying a regular pile of school supplies. The details make it stand out wherever you chose to wear it.

One of my friends remarked that Rainbow Dash’s head looks like he is trying to eat my ear when I’m wearing it. The legs/arms, wings, mane, and tail are also fun details that really make this stand out amongst my other bags. I could easily see this as a travel buddy pillow with the right objects packed inside of it (PJs would be my first suggestion).

Another item was happy to try on was a Rainbow Dash bathrobe. The material is super soft and feels like heaven after a shower. I love that it’s black and has neon colored thread for the details (eyes, wings, and cutie-mark). The head is also adorned with Rainbow Dash’s main and is a soft towel-like fabric.

In addition to these fun items, the website also carries a range of t-shirts and accessories. My favorite shirt is a black one with Rainbow Dash (do you see a theme here yet?) that says “Simply Awesome” on it. It’s not an adult sized shirt, but I was able to comfortably fit into a junior’s large. The shirt goes well with the Rainbow Dash seatbelt  belt.

Now for the fun part…thanks to we are doing a Rainbow Dash giveaway!!

One lucky reader will win a Rainbow Dash backpack, bathrobe, socks, keychain, and hat!

I love Twilight Sparkle- she’s a bookworm, just like me, and doesn’t always get it right. That backpack is seriously awesome!

Twilight Sparkle – my husband says that’s me as a pony due to the academic obsessiveness and insecurities. (And he and my daughter both love Rainbow Dash; he even has a Dash on his desk at work!)

Applejack because she’s got that Southern accent and she’s bad ass.

My favorite pony is Zecora…does she count? I also like Nightmare Moon. My 7 year old daughter (who I’d give ALL THE PONY STUFFS to) loves Rainbow Dash. The highlight of her year so far has been meeting the voice of Twilight Sparkle at Megacon.

Applejack is my favorite – she’s sweet & sassy, and her dog has an amazingly wonderful name. (Seriously, my name just doesn’t come up that often!)

Of the Mane Six I love Applejack. Lyra is my favortie background pony – she reminds me of Medley from my childhood, a pony I always wanted.

It’s a toss up for me between the spunky Rainbow Dash and the down-to-earth hard working wholesomeness of Applejack.

Fluttershy! She’s so introverted (like me), quiet and wanting to make peace everywhere, but when it comes down to the wire, she’s no pushover.

Twilight Sparkle for me!

It’s just hard to pick one! I am more like Twilight Sparkle as she is a geek and nerd like most who reads GeekDad and GeekMom. The other Mane 6 ponies are fun to watch!

While I really do love just about everypony(hehe) on the show, I feel a special bond with Fluttershy. I understand how it feels to be soft spoken when your friends are very gregarious. I also love how she is very responsible for such a large menagerie of animals– nobody goes hungry around Fluttershy. She truly is the element of kindness and that’s one of the most rare things one can find anymore. I love how she learns that being a bully is simply not a good way to behave around people and she uses her ability to be kind to also be firm and stand her ground, even against a dragon.

Mine is Photo Finish due to the fact that she is a fashion photographer. lol

My favorite pony has always been Waterfire. She’s a reader (like me) and she had such distinct coloring when I saw her in the store, since she isn’t your standard pastel blue, but more of a teal with red-orange mane and tail. I really geeked out when I saw she was actually in the cartoon.

my favorite pony is Babs Seed. I love her mane style, her colors, and her accent. Plus the concept to her personality was really nice in my opinion, i like the idea of “the bully here is the victim where she comes from” idea.
