    I was shopping with my nan and mum at Morrison's yesterday (both of whom know I'm a Brony, my mum sort of just found out, and my nan was with me when I first bought the pasta with Applejack on the tin.) I went to the magazines isle to buy my nan a TV guide as we always do, and then I lay my eyes on the magazine, it's the first time I've ever seen an MLP dedicated magazine, previously it's only been cameos in magazines like Sparkle World which have stuff I don't want to spend money on inside.

    I have no idea what compelled me to buy it (as these magazines are aimed at the youngest of little kids, the show's appeal may span the entire family, but I'm strictly talking about this magazine here.) But I did, I asked nan to hold onto it in her wheelchair so it was a tad less awkward until I could get it into the the trolley, and after we're done I look at it when I get back to my nan's. I didn't do any of the activities inside (as that's a step too far even for my inner child) but I enjoy looking through it a lot...this show has definitley done things to me xD

    I can't tell if this is the first issue or not, but somehow I get a feeling that it isn't. Anypony else buy this magazine on here?

    Nope, but I would certainly pay good money to see a magazine directed towards Bronies in particular. Hasbro know we're out there, and releasing the episodes to iTunes was definitely the first step in allowing us to support the show, but as far as other merchandise is concerned, it looks like they're not quite sure what to do. EQD is the best we've got right now.

    Are there really enough Bronies out there who would buy an FiM magazine when they could just as easily check Equestria Daily though?

    Bobby.p totes brought that guitar into college today. We were going to do some funky street performing (I had my Rainbow Dash hat and everything) but we ended up not following through with that idea.

    Also, I think it's issue 3 if I remember right.

    I'd wager the guitar...well, probably isn't very ideal for street performing, I've not gotten it out of the bag, but I'm told the strings snap stupidly easily xD *Note* I realize you don't mean serious performing, but even for that I mean =P

    And it's issue 3? Hope there's a way of obtaining issues 1 and 2 somehow.

    I can tell you now that one of our staff members bought the mag when I was with them.

    I think it's about issue 4 now. The first one came with a Twilight Sparkle toy mobile phone, the second had a Pinkie Pie stationery set, the third had a Twilight Sparkle hairband, and then it's this one. Unless I'm forgetting any others.

    I have the Pinkie Pie stationery set and the guitar, but I hate the magazine as there's so many mistakes. Personal favorite was in one of them they called Winona Jackaroo.

    I went on Ebay to see if anyone was selling the previous 3 issues, but the only one on there is Issue 4 >.< Bloody annoying, to say the least.

    Yeah I 'm buying them, but they are very expensive - nearly 4 quid! I am keeping a set pristine as collectors items for the future and then I have one to colour match clothes and accessories when out shopping.
    I can just play the theme from the Third Man on that plastic guitar...

    I picked up issue 3, it had a sort of camera thing in it - I'll bring it along, though it's obviously a wee bit lame.

    I love the little guitar, though - if you play it right it is the CREEPIEST THING YOU WILL EVER HEAR

    I'm actually kind of curious to hear it now xD Dunno if I'd try it on mine though, I'm told the strings snap stupidly easily, as one would expect from a cheap magazine throw in toy.

    Oh yeah, that's right. The hairbands came with it, right?

    I bought that same mag with the toy guitar last time I was at Tescos for the Giggles, I havent even unwrapped it.
    Glad to hear Im not the only deranged lunatic to buy 1

    It would be so cool to see a mag directed at Bronies, theres enough regulary produced fan material and news to fill a monthly mag but I very much doubt it would ever happen.

    I love the guitar, I usually ignore the magazine but the guitar was too cool to pass up! I wish I could modify it to be a properly tuned ukulele but I can barely play let alone make that :<
