Jumbo Peppa Pig Dominoes
Advantages: Durable and fun
Like most three year old girls my daughter absolutely adores Peppa Pig and has a range of different toys featuring the character. I am always on the look out for games I can sit and play with with my children that will not only be fun but educational too, so when I spotted these Peppa Pig Giant Dominoes on Amazon I was immediately drawn to them. After a little reading up (I always read the reviews on Amazon before any purchase!) I added them to my basket and awaited delivery. The Peppa Pig Dominoes are widely in available to buy varying in price depending upon the retailer. They are currently priced at £7.99 on Amazon plus free super saver delivery is offered on this item.
The Peppa Pig Dominoes arrived a few days after placing my order. As always with Amazon the product was well (if not overly) packaged. The dominoes themselves come in a sturdy durable cardboard box the box which can be kept and used to store the dominos in. Of course being a childs product the box is very bright, fun and appealing. At the top of the box "Peppa Pig" is written in fun pink lettering with the words "Dominoes" underneath. The manufacturers brand †logo is clearly displayed, this is a large red elephant with "Jumbo" written inside. The main picture is of course of Peppa Pig smiling and looking very happy in her usual red dress. The background is a lovely blue sky with a few clouds and a yellow sun. Also on the front of the box is a plastic "window" through which we can see an example of one of the dominoes. Three pictures in the bottom corner inform us that this product is for children aged 3+, for 2-4 players and will take approx 15 minutes per game. Further information and Instructions are given on the back of the box
There are 28 dominoes tiles in total, each measuring 5x10 cm. The fact that these dominoes are larger and chunkier than regular dominoes means they are ideal for little hand. They are made of strong white plastic, which are easy to wipe clean should they get a little mucky. Instead of numbers like on regular dominoes we have bright colourful pictures featuring the characters: Peppa Pig, George Pig, Rebecca Rabbit, Suzy Sheep, Candy Cat, Danny Dog and Zoe Zebra. The pictures are printed onto the dominos and have a slight shine to them.
Playing Peppa Pig dominoes is fairly similar to regular dominoes and rules can be changed or varied to suit. The general rules given are to begin by shuffling the dominoes then giving each player five each. The remaining ones are to be left face down and used as a "bank". The first player places down a domino featuring two identical character pictures in the centre, the next player must match one of their dominoes with the one placed in the centre. If the player does not have one that matches they must take one from the "bank". †The game continues like this. The winner is the first player to use up all their dominoes.
We have had this Peppa Pig dominoes game for around a year and in that time they have been played with quiet regularly. It is an enjoyable game that is easy enough for my three year old to understand yet still appropriate for older children. Whilst my eldest daughter would not pick these out to play herself, she is happy enough to play this with her little sister. My youngest daughter is fast approaching her fourth birthday and I see no reason why she will not continue to play with these dominoes for quiet sometime to come. The dominoes themselves are of a high quality, they are strong and durable. The character pictures are still as bright and vibrant as the day we bought them and we have had no problem with the pictures fading. I highly recommend these dominoes for any little Peppa Pig fan.
Summary: Perfect for any peppa pig fan!
