Peppa Pig has become a family favorite at Grandma and Grandpa's house. We received some awesome Peppa Pig products to review that will be available exclusively in Toys “R” Us stores nationwide beginning this August. They are manufactured by Fisher Price. I am so excited! We have been reviewing the products for over a week now and my grandchildren have come to adore Peppa Pig.
Just in case you have not heard about Peppa Pig I will share the story briefly. Peppa pig is the creation of Neville Astley, Mark Baker and Phil Davis. They developed the award winning animated series in the U.K. in 2004. Since then Peppa Pig has been airing in many countries all over the world including the U.S. where you can view her on Nick Jr.
Peppa is a cute little pink piggy with a British accent. She lives with her brother George, Mommy Pig and Daddy Pig.
Let's start with the DVD. The Peppa Pig DVD by Entertainment One Family is titled Muddy Puddles and Other Stories and is $14.98. I introduced Peppa Pig to the grandchildren with the DVD. The DVD runs 60 minutes with ten episodes. Each episode has a little Peppa adventure that is entertaining and delightful with lots of piggy snorts. I was excited that the episodes held their attention for quite some time.
The Muddy Puddles episode was loved by everyone. Each grandchild had their favorite episode. The Hide and Seek and Camping episodes were at the top of our favorites list. You can visit Peppa Pig and watch a few clips, color a Peppa page, and play games at www.peppapig.com.
Next we decided to read the book "Peppa Pig and the Lost Christmas List." (Candlewick Press) Priced at $12.99.
This book is a great Christmas story for young children. Peppa and George pick out a tree. Santa lost the wish list and Peppa saves the day. Well, the story line is simple and easy for little children to understand.
The illustrations are cute and simply colorful. This was a very entertaining story for all the children. Up next is the Hug'n Oink Peppa made by Fisher-Price for $21.99. She is simply an adorable pink pig! Just squeeze her tummy to hear her oink, giggle and sing.
Any young child will enjoy such a cute and huggable pig. My grandson Little Bug had an oinking good time playing with Peppa and watching the Peppa Pig DVD.
Moving on to the Peppa & Friends two pack figures play set, "Painting Together" made by Fisher-Price for $7.99. If you have a young child 3 and up this would make a great any time gift. I plan to get a couple for stocking stuffer's since I know they will enjoy anything Peppa Pig.
This set includes Peppa Pig and Danny Dog with a peek'n surprise art easel that flips to reveal a colorful painting.
Finally I saved my favorite for last. The "Peek'n Surprise Playhouse made by Fisher-Price for $34.99.
I am sure you want to know why this is my favorite toy! I am a very down to earth, interactive grandma. I like to sit down on the floor and play with my grandchildren. We have a lot of fun playing with their people play sets. It does not matter the theme. Doll houses, tree houses or castles I do enjoy playing with the ones my grandchildren enjoy. The Peek'n Surprise Playhouse became a big hit at our house!
This is a charming little play house with lots of transforming furniture. Just flip the unmade bed and Peppa's bed is made. Open the refrigerator door and with a flip the refrigerator goes from full to empty. Time for a Peppa shopping trip.
The figures can sit or stand which is great for imaginative play. I can hardly begin to tell you about all the hours of fun we are having with this awesome play set.
I believe they are the cutest little pigs I have ever seen! My grandchildren and I think that all these fun Peppa Pig toys will make great Christmas gifts for any child on your list.
