Fun with Peppa Pig Educational Toys

Fun with Peppa Pig Educational Toys

We’ve been through Peppa Pig with Isabelle, and now Freddie is a huge fan with George being his favourite character. It was such a treat to be sent a selection of Peppa Pig Fun Educational Toys from Trends UK and even more so that he now has his own little home office set up.

It’s great how fun characters are made into toys that have playability as well as having educational properties which ticks all the boxes from a parenting point of view.

Peppa Pig Count with Peppa helps develop counting skills, colours, and picture recognition as each coin has a picture of a different character on it. The coins are a nice size for toddlers’ hands and easy to push into the purse and retrieve by themselves.

There are two modes of play which you can select by a switch on the side of Peppa.

Numbers – Pop one of the coins into Peppa’s purse and she will count the coins as you push them in. She also asks you to find different coins such as ‘find a coin with 8 birds on it’ and will tell you well done when you’ve posted it in.

Colours – Peppa will tell you the colours of the coins as you post them into her purse. She will tell you well done if you get it right or gives you an oops if it’s the wrong one.

There are two buttons above the coin slot. One is to activate the colours and numbers game and the other plays popular Peppa Pig songs that your little ones can join in with.

Our Thoughts

This toy is suitable from age 2 and is a great way to introduce them to numbers and colours. Freddie loves finding things so likes the option to find the character or the correct colours. There’s a volume control on the back of Peppa which Freddie of course likes to switch it to the loudest mode. This is a lovely toy that can be played with time again and gets a thumbs up from us.

What child doesn’t like their own laptop! This Peppa Pig Laugh & Learn laptop has lots of features including letters, numbers, objects, and musical instruments. The screen lights up and has fun sounds and music. It’s also got a carry handle so it’s a great option for out and about.

There are four option buttons on the righthand side.

Mystery – Peppa asks you to select any button and she will tell you what that is.

Quiz – She will ask you a question or ask you to find something, and you have to select the correct button for the answer.

What can you find – Peppa will ask you to find something such as the recorder or the birds and will make a twinkly sound when you get it right.

Music notes – The buttons turn into notes and funny sounds.

There are also two musical note buttons on the left which play little tunes.

The Peppa Pig Laugh & Learn Laptop is suitable from 2 years.

Our Thoughts

Freddie couldn’t wait to get this out of the box. He loves role play and was very excited about having a laptop just like Mummy. I think the music option and funny noises are his favourite activity. We initially thought that the screen was a touch screen as Peppa asked us to select the birds or the coins, but these are selectable through the shape and puddle buttons on the keyboard.

I set us up side by side which Freddie was very pleased with. He did a very funny impression of me working, although I’m sure I’m not as bossy as he was on the phone!

This easy to flip Peppa Pig Flip & Learn Phone has colourful buttons which can be pressed to talk to various Peppa Pig characters. There is also a little quiz and keys to answer the phone when it rings. They can even pretend to take photos just like a real phone.

The Peppa Pig Flip & Learn Phone is suitable from 2 years.

Our Thoughts

The phone paired with the laptop pleased Freddie very much as he pretended he was working alongside me. He was phoning people up to tell them that he was working including Nanny and Daddy. He loved it when it rang back at him and he had to answer his ‘work calls’.

It was funny to watch him pretend to be doing my job. I’m not really sure that my kids know what I do other than bash away on my laptop. As a Mum, overall these toys are what you would expect from toys for this age group. Fun but with an educational value. There are noise control buttons on the toys, but the options are loud and louder!

If you have a Peppa Pig fan, you can of course buy all of the above Peppa Pig Educational Toys from Amazon BUT you can also head on over to my Facebook Page where you can WIN a Peppa Laugh & Learn Laptop just in time for Christmas.

Peppa Pig Shopping Centre Review

Peppa Pig Shopping Centre Review

Our Peppa Pig journey started with Isabelle who is now ten years old and continues with Freddie who is two years old. Did you know that the show has been running since 2004? I had to google it!

Peppa Pig has come a long way since we first started watching it. There are a lot more characters, not to mention all the Peppa Pig themed everything from toys, hair accessories and bedding.

Freddie loves Peppa Pig but his favourite character is George Pig and his dinosaur, so we were thrilled to be sent the Peppa Pig Shopping Centre to play with.

What’s in the Box?

The shopping centre is set out across two floors featuring six different shops with the clever help of interchangeable signs. There is:

Ice Cream Parlour
Pizzeria
Cake Shop
Toy Store
Fruit and Veg Shop
Bakery

There is even a working lift that the characters can go up and down in which I think was Freddie’s favourite feature. As with any supermarket, there is a tannoy with buttons with real supermarket sounds such as the ‘ding dong’ to alert shoppers to special offers, checkout sounds and lift music.

The shopping centre came with twelve accessories including a Peppa Pig character, shopping trolly, cash register, a plate of cookies, a restaurant table and chairs and a plate of cookies.

Interchangeable Shops

The shop areas can be changed by the clever use of swivelling signs.

I should give the restaurant table a special mention since the table rotates between having Pizza and ice cream on the plates.

The Lift

I knew that the lift would be Freddie’s favourite feature. Pop Peppa in the lift and press the button for her to go up to the next level, and then push it back down to do it again……and again……and again! Freddie only turned two in June and is quite heavy handed, but this was robust enough for him to do on his own without any frustration.

The Microphone

What’s a shopping centre without real life noises. The microphone has working buttons with a check out sound, lift music and the kind of ‘ding dong’ that you hear before an announcement is made. The microphone is detachable, so could be accidentally lost should you need a bit of peace and quiet.

Our Thoughts

I really wished that I’d caught Freddies gasp when I showed him the shopping centre. He could not wait to get it out of the box and thankfully it wasn’t screwed to the box and didn’t require any assembly. The only thing we had to do was put the batteries (not included) in the microphone and it was good to go.

Freddie was two in June and so toys generally have to be quite robust for him to play with, but this playset ticked all the boxes in terms of sturdiness and managed to keep his attention for a long time, in fact I had to prise the pieces out of his hands so we could pick his sister up from school. His favourite feature was the lift which he was able to do without any help and enjoyed putting Peppa and her shopping the lift.

Overall, this has all the plus points that we look for when buying toys for Freddie. The only thing that would have been nice addition would have been if there was a Miss Rabbit character since she does all the jobs in Peppa Pig.

The Peppa Pig Shopping Centre is marketed at children age 3+ but Freddie has already been playing with Isabelle’s Peppa Pig toys and I’m quite happy that he is able to play with it as intended. It retails at £39.99 at Smyths Toys and other retailers and would make a great Christmas present for any Peppa Pig fan.
