Visitors to Specsavers in Chelmsley Wood were greeted by a magical treat as a miniature Shetland pony in unicorn guise joined the team to launch the highly anticipated My Little Pony range.

Fun for children in store

The team in Greenwood Square welcomed the pony into store, which was dressed as My Little Pony character Twilight Sparkle. Alongside the unicorn to pet, children were entertained with a colouring competition, with the winner bagging tickets to see the My Little Pony movie.

Staff members dressed up in My Little Pony t-shirts to offer advice and information on the new frames, and handed out helium balloons to youngsters.

A word from the store director

‘It was so exciting to welcome our very own unicorn into store,’ said store director, Sukhi Drake.

‘He really stole the show and it definitely brought a little magic to our younger customers’ days. The new My Little Pony range is a colourful, fun selection for children, and this was really reflected in the day. Thanks to everyone who popped in to enjoy the fun!’
