Baby Cakes cointains 5 episodes from Friendship Is Magic season 2 - Baby Cakes, Hearth's Warming Eve, The Last Roundup, The Super Speedy Cider Squeezy 6000 and Read It And Weep. The DVD is suitable for children of all ages, with a Universal rating, and a runtime of 1 hour 45 minutes. If you are lucky, your version will even have free badges!
My 6 year old especially loves this DVD. He thinks it's hilarious. He can retell the entire story, and has done, many times. In the title episode, Baby Cakes, Pinkie Pie is called on to babysit for two little ponies. She thinks it'll be fun and games, and it isn't, it's a lot harder than she expects. Everything goes wrong and there's a huge mess and my little boys laugh and laugh.
Of course everything turns out fine in the end, and there are lessons learnt by the ponies, and also hopefully a message sent to the children who watch. The My Little Pony: Frienship Is Magic series is really quite wholesome and morally good, without being too condescending.
My lads enjoyed the rest of the DVD just as much. There's a little gentle peril, and a few more lessons in how you should treat others. The animation is good and bright, and although it's very pink with a lot of female characters, the stories themselves aren't exclusively female, so my boys can enjoy them for the tales that they are.
