My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic is the newest take on the My Little Pony cartoons from the 1980s. This pumpkin carving kit features the “mane six” plus their beloved dragon friend Spike. Each character looks just like they do in the recent cartoon, with a slightly anime feel and big, adorable eyes. These pumpkin templates are a great choice when decorating for a kids Halloween party but are not recommended when carving with children because they are a 4/5 challenge level (unless the adults plan on doing most of the work). You can add enhancements like cutie marks painted on the sides of each Jack o Lantern or a sprinkling of sparkles.
