Bacon sarnie anyone?
My little girl, who is nearly four, became a bit obsessed with Peppa Pig about a year ago. It got to the point where I was totally sick of Peppa, and every time I saw it I felt that the only good thing that could happen to Peppa and her family was that they would be made into a nice big pile of bacon sandwiches.
Thankfully I think I have managed to wean my daughter off watching the TV programmes, but I did spot this set in my local charity shop recently for just £1.50 and decided to buy it for her, hoping she could get her Peppa fix this way instead!
Fuzzy and fun
I loved Fuzzy Felt sets when I was little, so I thought this would be good fun for her. And one of the reasons this appealed to me is that there are a lot of bits in the pack. The main item is of course the board where you stick the smaller pieces. The board is a good size and is mainly blue, for the sky, with a green hill at the bottom. This is the perfect place for Peppa's house which is also included.
Other felt pieces in the set include Peppa and her family in their car, as well as individual pieces featuring the four main characters from the show - Peppa's little brother George, mummy pig, daddy pig, and of course Peppa herself - jumping in muddy puddles. There are also extra Peppa and George pieces with them on bikes and playing. There are clouds and a sun for the sky, as well as a few much smaller pieces of felt featuring a few toys and other things. As there are such a lot of pieces you can make lots of different scenes simply by placing the felt images onto the board, where they will stick nicely - it is like a very gentle Velcro affect! All the pieces are very bold and brightly coloured, just as in the programme and all the images depicted are very faithful to those you see on the TV. So if your child is familiar with the programme they will easily recognise the different characters.
And the whole lot comes in a sturdy plastic envelope, with a handle at the top, so it is nice and easy to keep this all together and store it all away when you are done with it.
My little girl really enjoys playing with this, and she loves creating different scenes and making the characters have conversations with each other. A lot of the pieces are quite large, so you couldn't possibly fit all of them onto the board at once (unless you made it into a real jumble), but this means you can play around with the pieces to create an array of different scenes. As the pictures are exactly as they are in the programme it is lots of fun for a Peppa fan and my daughter certainly enjoys playing with her set.
However I do wish I had got hold of one of these sooner, as I can definitely see her starting to lose interest in this quite soon. There is just not enough to do here to keep her interested for long periods of time and I think she will be a bit too old for it soon. So I would definitely recommend this for Peppa fans who are about 3, as I think this is just the right age to get maximum fun from the set!
Looking online I think this may be a bit tricky to get hold of now, although there do seem to be loads on ebay and, as I say I found this in my local charity shop. So I am sure if you are interested you will be able to get your hands on a set!
Summary: A fun idea for Peppa fans
