Disclosure: I received product from Peppa Pig for reviewing in this post. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
Fans of Nick Jr.'s delightful show, Peppa Pig, will be delighted to know that there are some adorable new ways to extend the fun! Fisher-Price's new Peppa Pig toys can now be found at Toys "R" Us and there is also a new book from Chadwick Press and even a cool new Peppa Pig's Sports Day app! We received a selection of new Peppa Pig toys to check out and today we are sharing our thoughts with all of you!
If you are unfamiliar with Peppa Pig, I suggest you start by learning a bit more about her at the following sites:
Bedtime Peppa Pig is all ready for bed in her pink pajamas and sweet little blanket to cuddle under. Give Peppa a hug and her cheeks will glow as she sings a lullaby, oinks, or plays a counting song. My kids always love a stuffed friend so this was a big hit with them.
Available at Toys R Us in stores and online, retails for $26.99
Muddy Puddles Bathtime Peppa set comes with a Peppa figure, her little brother George, a washing brush, and a bathtub storage container that sticks to the wall.
Available at Toys "R" Us stores and online, retails for $12.99
Hardcover with Dust Jacket. Available at Toys "R" Stores and select booksellers, retails for $12.99
A notable feature is that this is a P2 Kid Safe App, which means there is no in-app purchasing or data gathering - keeping your child's location safe etc. While the initial purchase price is a little higher than some children's apps, I prefer to not have to deal with being constantly asked to spend more for extras, which usually ends up being way more than this app's $4.99 purchase price. I'd rather pay the cost up front than find out about "hidden" costs after the kids are hooked on the app.
While I was provided with a complimentary game code, I do think the purchase price is quite reasonable because there are seven activities in the app and in several of the games multiple players can take part at once. So like a real Sports Day, you can compete against each other in things like the Obstacle Race.
My oldest particularly enjoyed the ice cream maker activity, a treat for after all those field day games just played, and the making rosettes feature. In that activity you design rosettes that become the ribbons awarded to the characters as they play each of the field day activities. She thought it was very neat to see the design she created used in the app. Another fun activity included is a the Sticker activity. Throughout the course of playing the various Sports Day activities, players earn stickers that they can then use to make four different scenes.
For children age 2-6, available on iTunes and Amazon, $4.99
