Peppa Pig Secret Messages Set
Advantages: Provides fun and entertainment in the right environment
On a recent trip to Peppa Pig world, my daughter was let loose in the gift shop at the end of our outing. She was on a limited pocket money spend of just £3, but amazingly she found this secret message set that she really wanted for just the right price.
With a love of all things drawing and craft, as well as Peppa Pig, this little set was bound to be a hit with her from the start.
Included in the packet was a slimline notepad, four different coloured chunky felt tip pens and two secret message pens.
Without the attraction of being able to create secret messages then this set really wouldn't be worth more than a pound, but to be able to create something secret and fun, makes it more intriguing.
To use the set is very simple. A drawing or message is written in the special pen before being coloured over with one of the coloured pens.
My daughter found this very amusing and spent ages drawing little designs to make them magically appear in front of our eyes.
The quality of the set was surprisingly good. I didn't expect much for the price, especially when the price had been inflated due to the venue it was purchased from. It's standard price from the high street is just £2.
Each pen is a decent thickness and quite chunky for the child to hold. The tips are quite thick and chunky as well. I would perhaps think they would be better if the secret pen nib was a little slimmer and then the coloured pens would cover and reveal the message easier in a smaller area. The pens are also adorned in Peppa Pig slogans and pictures which makes them stand out a little better.
I have found that after continuous use, the coloured pens have started to almost fray from the nib. I wondered if this was due to my daughter being heavy handed but in actual fact I think it is just the pens as I have watched how hard she presses with them.
The secret message pen is made from something different as it is lasting a lot longer.
The notepad that is included has approximately fifty pages. I was happy with this as apart from it's character cover design it really was a standard notepad that you could pick up anywhere for not a lot of money.
I have found the set to provide decent amusement for my daughter which made it value for money for us. Overall however I'm not sure that it would be well received if it was meant for anything more than a pocket money toy.
Summary: Average pocket money toy
