Jumbo Peppa Pig Giant Playing Cards
Advantages: Great fun
Peppa Pig is my little girls favourite character on TV at the moment and over the last few years we have a mountain of Peppa pig merchandise some have been big hits others are poorly made but this is one of our favourites it provides fun for mummy and daughter as well as being able to play with my two boys as well so can be used for independent play or group play.
There are 36 Peppa Pig giant picture playing cards and on these cars are different characters with their names underneath these are all based on the TV program and are easily recognisable to my little girl who knows the name of each character and so then can start seeing the spelling of thee words underneath. Although at 2 I doubt she will suddenly begin to write these cards are fantastic for taking something a child loves and using that to introduce the alphabet and words to pre schoolers.
Each card is bright and colourful helping catch and holds little ones attention. He words are the cards are lovely and big in bold writing so that little one can clearly see them. They are rather thick so that they are durable and last while little fingers can hold them easily but not too big that it is awkward for little hands.
There are four different games that children can play using the giant picture playing cards depending on age and understanding you can easily choose for which age group each game is suitable.
Giant Pairs is a game where players take it in turns to pick pairs of card that are lying down faced, if you match a pair then you keep those and pick again. The winner is the player with the most pairs when all the cards have been picked. This is great for younger children helping them with their memory while having fun finding their favourite character in the process.
Giant Snap is one of my favourites as all my children can play even my 18 month old little boy loves joining in and shouting snap even if it is with 2 different characters. Snap is a where players turn over a card and place it in the middle, if the card someone else turns over matches the previous then you shout 'snap' and take the pile of cards
Giant Happy Families is good fun everyone picks a family from Peppa pig they would like to collect and simply take it in turns asking each other until they have the cards they need. The first person to collect the 4 cards with the same character wins. This game was a little disappointing as when I first brought it I thought it would be like the pig family, the rabbit family etc but it is just collecting 4 of the same character.
Giant Dinosaur is a game where you remove 3 of the dinosaurs leaving one and keep playing pairs until there is just the one dinosaur card left. Whoever has this card looses the game.
Each game has its own advantages weather it is getting little ones to think about sets of families and help improve there memory with pairs they are guaranteed to have fun once you bring there favourite character into the running. These cards can hold the attention of all 3 of my children who are different age rangers. From 18 months to 4 years each and every one of them loves and finds different ways of playing with them.
They are great for introducing letters to my little girl who is 2 and are a prompt for my 4 year old son to practise his letters by copying the names of each character and writing them on a piece of paper. As there are different ways to play with the cards and the children still manage to come up with new things to do with them they have lasted over a year now without the children getting bored with them.
My only downside to the cards is the box them came in. It is not very durable and ripped with the constant storage of the card so my little girl keeps them in here Peppa pig lunch box. Saying that the cards have lasted really well apart from 1 dinosaur card which was ripped by my youngest son the rest are all intact and although a little worn at the corners they are still playable.
The age range is 3 years plus but I can not see why they can not be used younger with adult supervision as my 2 youngest really enjoy playing with them and apart from ripping the cards there is no major harm they can do.
Summary: A game fun for all the family
