The My Little Pony: Where Equestria Comes to Life book includes the latest technology to bring you an innovative and fun new way to read a book with your little ones. Simply download the My Little Pony AR app (it’s available for Android and Apple) on your mobile device and you’re ready to bring your favourite My Little Pony characters to life and interact with them in your own home.
The book features nine interaction pages, and when you view the interactive pink pony symbol in the book using your device the My Little Pony you have chosen on that page will come to life! Get ready to see Twilight Sparkle or Rainbow Dash fly around your room, or Pinkie Pie with her alligator pet Gummy and Fluttershy with her fluffy bunny pet Angel walking on your carpet. You’ll also be able to let Applejack, Rarity and Spike explore your room.
It’s quite magical to see your kiddies faces as they see the My Little Pony come to life in their own house, the excitement as the pony walks around on their bed or flies up onto their cupboard is amazing. It’s lots of fun to take photos of the pony standing on their knee or in their hands and to share those photos with them. You can also make the pony lifesize in this interactive guidebook.
Once you view the interactive symbol with your device the pony will come to life on the book itself. You can then use the joystick control button to move the pony off the page, making it walk by moving your finger on the button. The action button will make the ponies spring into their action pose, and you’ll be able to make any winged ponies fly using the wings button.
Each pony has a double page, letting you learn more about the pony with brightly coloured illustrations. The book also includes plenty of information on Equestria, as well as details on other pony pals to keep any My Little Pony fan engaged. If you have a friend with the book you can use the dual user mode to make your ponies walk together!
You can even create your very own pony by selecting the customise option in the app. You can customise the pony’s colour from a wide palette of colours, and add a horn and wings if you choose which you can also customise the colour on. You can select your pony’s hair, eyes, tail and cutie mark from a range of options, and you’ll also be able to choose the hair and tail colour from a range of colours. You can view your pony in 3D and also rotate her and zoom in to see her bigger. Once you’re happy with your pony you can save her to one of five save slots, to view or alter later, and you can then make her walk.
My Little Pony: Where Equestria Comes to Life is a fun new interactive experience that will keep fans of the popular series entertained for many hours. There is lots to explore in the book, and children will enjoy bringing the ponies to life and letting them explore their own surroundings thanks to this great augmented reality adventure.
Last word from Amy: “I like it because you can put it on your phone and the My Little Pony comes out and you can hold it on your hand. I like the My Little Pony because they fly with their wings, and they walk on the ground, and they jump up high. I like unicorns and My Little Pony.”
My Little Pony: Where Equestria Comes to Life is available at a recommended retail price of R150 from bookstores and online retailers.
