Ponies Galore at City Square Mall

By A Happy Mum @A_Happy_Mum
Ponies. It's hard for any kid, especially little girls, to resist them, right? While we are not fervent supporters of the My Little Pony television series and to be honest, I can only name two ponies out of them all, that doesn't mean that my girls will willingly give up a chance to meet these adorable ponies 'live' on stage.
So, yes, we went for yet another Meet & Greet session at City Square Mall! Before you decide not to read on and think that it's the same old story, let me tell you what was the deciding factor that made me so resolute to attend this event.
We didn't just meet the My Little Ponies 'live' on stage, we also got to come up close with LIVE ponies too! Yes, live, tame and beautiful ponies right outside a bustling shopping mall! Now now, that does sound quite enticing, doesn't it? For me, I realised that while we had let Angel go on half a dozen pony or horse rides in Sweden, this was going to be a first for Ariel. So by hook or by crook, even if the hubby was not around and I had to solely take care of two kids who went fanatical over the ponies, I was going to do it.

At first, I was a little hesitant if Ariel was going to be brave enough to do it. Who knows, once she saw the ponies, she exclaimed "Mummy, I want, I want!" and even told me that she wanted to have the pink helmet. Yes, how girly! So, despite it being 1:30 in the afternoon and we had to queue under the hot sun for 45 minutes, that beam on her face told me that it was all worth it.

As for the big sister, she was a professional at the riding part and showed even more pluck when it came to the feeding. You know, these ponies might be tame but they still gave some kids a fright and most would not choose to feed them with their bare hands, judging by how their tongues can be ticklish and how they showed off their strong, big teeth.

However, Angel was not intimidated in the least and she said confidently "Mummy, I don't need to use the spade, I can use my hands to feed the pony". And so she did, even encouraging the little sister to do so too (who did it once and decided the space felt much safer).

We loved the beautiful white pony at this station and my only regret was that we waited for over 3 hours to get our printouts because there was so much confusion over there. I did feedback to the staff that they needed a system to keep track of whose photo has been printed, let the customers to able to track their photos and give a realistic waiting time instead of telling us to come back every 15 minutes. To give them the benefit of the doubt, we were there on the first day so they said they did not expect such a huge crowd to show up. Hopefully the system has been improved and the waiting time dramatically reduced subsequently!

Did my kids enjoy the day's events? Absolutely, positively very very much!!! They loved the pony rides, feeding, photo printouts, Zoomoov pony rides (3 rides for $10) and watched the entire live-on-stage performance twice! Plus, they were still reluctant to leave after that!
Now, that says a lot, doesn't it? Big thanks to City Square Mall for organising this kids-friendly and fun-filled pony galore that promises a magical time for the little ones!
