The show features a varied cast of unique, adorable ponies, one of whom is Twilight Sparkle. She is one of the show’s main protagonists and has evolved from a regular magical pony to an Alicorn, a demigod combination of a Pegasus and unicorn.
While her evolution was initially met with some apprehension from the fan community, the majority has come to accept her new role and status, and Hasbro is releasing the Princess Twilight Sparkle Toy in honor of her transformation.
Let’s take a look at some of her features
Princess Twilight Sparkle matches her transformed appearance in the show. She is mainly purple with blue Pegasus wings and a golden crown. The toy stands about a foot tall and has a series of sophisticated sensors covering her. She responds to various stimuli, singing and cooing when her hair is brushed, or when she is stroked, for instance. Her wings flap and light up when stroked or when her hooves are pulled across the ground.
Princess Sparkle is currently listed for just under $60 through a third party seller on Amazon.
