Origin

Origin

The My Little Pony fans will immediately recognize this adorable creature from the Friendship is Magic animated series. It appeared in season 6, The Crystalling episode and it immediately won over our hearts. It’s the daughter of Princess Cadance and Shining Armor. Baby Flurry Heart is a very special and unusual character. It was beyond anyone’s comprehending how it came into the crystal world as a baby alicorn which means she has both a horn and wings.

Now, the My Little Pony legend tells us that alicorn wings need to be earned by accomplishing some great princess-worthy deed, however Flurry Heart is simply born with them. Being both a unicorn and a Pegasus combined, this baby came withsuper strong flying abilities and crazy magical potential. For example, when the audience first met her, she sneezed and her horn destroyed the whole ceiling with its fierce glowing power. It comes as no surprise that Hasbro would be inspired by this cute and unique personality and create an equally amazing plush companion.

The baby Flurry Heart toy is undeniably adorable! It is so well put together that it truly does justice to its original animated character. She has a pink plastic head with wide blue eyes gazing enthusiastically through the long enchanting eyelashes. Her horn is a darker shade of pink and it’s glittering, while her hair is in pastel purple and baby blue color.

Her body is made of soft plush pink material and she’s wearing a blue diaper with a cute purple tutu on top of it. Her long silky alicorn wings are decorated with lavender, magenta and baby pink swirls, tiny sparkles and shiny crystal hearts. She also has a My Little Pony tattoo on her leg which you can press even from the Try Me box opening and hear her lovely voice.

Inside the original package you will find two baby accessories, a blue rattle and a purple baby bottle. They are very important since you can use them as tools to interact with Flurry and unlock all her sweet baby voices. The rattle is shaped as the magical heart crystal that protects the My Little Pony kingdom, while the purple bottle has lovely royal patterns all over it.
Sensory Stimulation

Sensory Stimulation

Since Flurry Heart is meant to be an interactive toy, it is equipped with sensory stimulation electronics that make her more life-like than regular plush toys. She adores attention and she will respond to it in the most adorable way, by lighting up her horn or making jolly noises.

Flurry Heart wakes up when you squeeze the pink tattoo on her left foot. She will greet you with a joyful voice and her horn will light up the room. She will also notice and respond when you amuse her by shaking the baby rattle. If you want to make her laugh, try tickling the sensors on the tummy. The longer you press her, the more she’ll giggle.
However, keep in mind that all that play-time activity might leave the little pony hungry, and once you feed Flurry with her bottle, she will make adorable nom nom sounds and share some happy voices. This way children can feel rewarded for taking proper care of their pet and helping it when it’s neglected.
