Peppa Pig Picnic Tea Set
Advantages: Lovely toy
Disadvantages: Stickers crumble off
My daughter is peppa pig mad and so when I came across this picnic set I knew she would love it we paid around £8 for it from our local b&m which is a bargain as these sets usually retail at around £15. It can be brought from Amazon, supermarkets and lots of other toy retailers I would look for it on offer.
What is it?
It is a picnic set which includes a tea pot, sugar bowl, milk jug, picnic mat, 3 cups, saucers and tea spoons. It all comes in a lovely box although it is described as a wicker box it is actually made of solid plastic and just designed to look like a real wicker box this is not a bad things means it is easy to keep clean and well made. It can be a little hard to get all the pieces back in as they have to sit right for it to close but after a while you get used to the way it needs pack.
Each piece of the set is made of plastic and so is very durable can be wiped clean. The tea pot and sugar pot both had lids that are easy to remove and put back on and all work perfectly when my daughter uses water for them. They are small but not too small and all the handles are a perfect size for little ones hands meaning they can hold and use them perfectly.
How to play
Simply lay the mat on the floor remove all the pieces from the basket and let little ones imagination run wild. She likes to add water to her teapot and pour it into the cups where she kindly asks mummy or daddy to taste it.
She likes to sit and try and have her lunch on the plates but as they are only tea cup size this can be difficult but my daughter does not seem to mind. Afterwards she likes to do the washing up to make all her set clean again but as it is just stickers that are added to each item rather than printed pictures this can be a disaster as they just crumble off. It does not affect game play but it does make them look rather tatty until the whole sticker is removed.
How well does it last?
Most of the set lasts really well although there are a few negatives the main structure of the toy and the whole play set work really well. The plastic can be wiped down which is great as that makes the set look brand new again and the box is great for keeping everything together. We have had this for 13 months now and it is still in perfect working order no scratches or any other marks although the Peppa pig stickers have come off so other than the picture on the inside of the basket you cannot tell it is a peppa pig toy.
There are a few negatives about this product one of them is you have to add the stickers yourself. Although this is not a huge problem or time consuming I find they tend to peel off a lot quicker when they are not added by the company. It is easy to do but within the first month of use they began to peel and now only a couple of the stickers remain.
Also the picnic mat that came is a flimsy piece of paper that was ruined the first time my daughter spilled a little 'tea' on it we had to chuck it away as it simply ripped. Although saying that my daughter does not mind that she just uses her peppa pig blankets to sit on.
It is a lovely toy that has received a year's worth of play and although a little tatty all round it works well. There are all the items you need for a tea party and a lovely story box to keep all the pieces together I do not think the fact it is peppa pig really matters although this is a major bonus for my Peppa pig mad daughter.
It is recommended from 3 plus but my daughter received this when she was 2 and as there are no small pieces she got on just fine with it. I would recommend this set it has its downfalls but the advantages outweigh them and it is a well loved toy.
Summary: A well loved toy with some downfalls
