We bought season one for our daughter when she was three and she absolutely loved all the episodes. I searched and searched for the second season but kept on getting reports that Sony would not release the second season. I am ecstatic that they finally did.
As the previous reviewer wrote, this is not the Princess Promenade. These are Saturday morning cartoons form the 80's when Thundarr and He-Man were very popular. Yes there are monsters, and yes the ponies are often in "mortal" danger. And yes, the animation is not crisp like todays computer drawn animation is, but all the episodes are wonderful and show kids that if you are a good person and stand by your friends, good things will happen to you. This is something that many of the thin skinned, terrified children of today should learn instead of being coddled by mindless entertainment like Dora or Blue.
Off topic, sorry, back to the discs. The songs are simple and catchy, our daughter is 4 1/2 now and sings most of the songs from season one. She hasn't learned season two's yet, but it will only be a matter of time.
I would highly recommend this for all children that love to play with Little Ponies!
