Now that the weather has become cooler at night my toddler needs to wear pyjamas to bed. However the pyjama set I bought her a while ago has not been very useful in this area as every night my daughter takes the top and bottoms off and a few times she has woken up cold in the middle of the night because of this! I have tried various things including tucking the blanket in tight around her and adding an extra layer on top of the pyjamas, but still they are taken off and the blanket kicked away. After battling with the issue for a while I realised that pyjamas that she really likes will be likely to stay on all night, as this is the case with other things that my daughter concedes to use.
My toddler is a huge Peppa Pig fan so I went in search of some PP pyjamas. We have an independent children's clothing store here in Exeter where I found a pair with Peppa on the front of it holding an ice lolly, with houses and flowers in the background. The decoration is nice, a bit too stimulating for bedtime perhaps but that hasn't seemed to effect my daughter. It doesn't go through to the other side which means that her torso is covered with soft cotton and not itchy material. The top and the bottom are made of soft comfortable cotton which has not frayed or bobbled at all in the wash.
The bottoms are a pale pink colour while the top is bright pink. The bottoms are more like short leggings as they do not reach my daughter's feet, which seems a bit silly since she is only 2 years old and really not all that into fashion, and even if she was why would she need that in pyjamas? But the length suits her fine as the bottom layer of blanket usually stays on my toddler, it's the top half that gets cold out of the cover too easily at night. But these pyjama bottoms may not be ideal for toddlers who get cold feet in the night or who kick the blanket off themselves completely.
As soon as I presented these pyjamas to my daughter she wanted to put them on, and they did indeed stay on all night. Success! Maybe there was something about her other plain cotton pyjamas she didn't like, but who knows as they are similar quality to these PP ones. These pyjamas are not too tight on her which is a plus as she does tend to take clothes off when they feel too restrictive, which pyjamas shouldn't be anyway. So all in all I am happy with this product.
These are not spectacular pyjamas and to be honest they are no different than buying plain cotton bottoms and a Peppa Pig top, but for the price I can't fault them and because I no longer have to battle with keeping my daughter dressed all night I still give them 4 stars.
These pyjamas cost me £2.99 for a top and bottom set for ages 2 to 3. You can get them upto 4 years of age.
When I was buying clothes for my daughter when she was between 18 -24 months, I bought two pairs of pyjamas, both cotton with long sleeve tops and trousers. During last summer in any hot weather, my daughter would have slept in her vest so I didn't think it was worth buying summer pyjamas, as most of the time the weather isn't very warm at night. Well, with the heat spell back at the start of June, I started to think that it might be a good idea to have a set of short sleeve pyjamas, as even when it cooled down, it wasn't as cold as other summers. I don't get a huge amount of time to browse shops, so having money left on an amazon voucher, and having read another review on here for the Peppa Pig pyjamas on amazon, I thought it would be a good use of my money, although with the added postage, they aren't cheap pyjamas as they cost £3.99, with a £2.99 Postage charge.
My daughter is going through the phase that many little girls go through relating to Peppa Pig. Anything Peppa Pig related or themed is an obsession, so there was no hesitation in my mind that my daughter would like these. These pyjamas are made up of a short sleeve t shirt as well as cropped 3/4 length and are pink in colour, with a deeper pink top and lighter pink trousers. As can be seen from the picture at the top of the screen, the main Peppa image is on the pyjama top, with Peppa eating an ice lolly in the sunshine, with beach huts behind. The only indication that the bottom half of the pyjamas matches the top half is the little Peppa wording at the bottom of the trousers. Otherwise you might not even be aware that these pyjamas are a set.
When the pyjamas arrived, I was happy with the quality as they are summer pyjamas and I wasn't expecting thick material. My daughter of course was very excited and couldn't wait to wear them that night. The first night we had them on was at the tail end of the heat wave at the start of June, so it was ideal to wear, as the long sleeve pyjamas would have been too warm, as they are also slightly heavier material. The waist is elasticated which is useful as at that stage (and even now) I try to get my daughter to pull up her trouser bottoms herself, so the stretchiness helps with this.
I have now washed these pyjamas a lot and so far they have washed well. I haven't noticed any fading on the picture on the front and they haven't shown any signs of shrinking. However, my daughter who is almost 2, seems in the last week to have almost outgrown a lot of her 18 -24 month clothes, everything is starting to look a little pinched, but nonetheless, these pyjamas served well during the much milder summer that we are used to, and that was what I wanted.
I am happy with these pyjamas with my only complaint being that with the added postage these pyjamas are pricier than others.
My six year old has been a Peppa Pig fan all her life, I've never been overly impressed with the daytime Peppa Pig clothing that's available but she's had a plethora of piggy related sets of pyjamas and nightdresses as they're just so cute. The biggest size this one goes up to is age 3 - 4, Hollie is fairly small for her age but I'm still quite surprised that they still (just about) fit her considering we've had this particular set for over a year now.
The design is great for summer with 3/4 length trousers and a short sleeved top, the summery feeling is continued with the large design on the front of the top showing Peppa with a large ice lolly and what looks like a pair of beach huts on either side of her. She's dressed in a cute polka dot dress, which initially Hollie wasn't pleased about as she likes Peppa to be wearing her 'proper' red dress at all times (you should have seen the tantrum a two year old Hollie had when presented with a 'space' Peppa, simply because she had on a silver outfit!) and overall the design has a lovely bright and summer-like feel to it.
The pyjamas are 100% cotton which I was surprised about actually, I bought them online and they only cost £7 (including delivery) so I'd been expecting a fabric mix. They're lovely and soft though even now after probably 80 washes, but when new they had a slightly fleeced feel which kept Hollie warm through a chilly spell over last summer and were the ones she chose to bring camping with us - her reasoning being that despite having short arms and legs they kept her body warm while she was sleeping in the camper van. I personally think she just wanted to bring her holiday pyjamas on her own holiday, which is fine by me as I'm all for kids showing a little initiative!
My bugbear, as ever with Peppa Pig clothing, is the image on the front of the pyjama top, which started to peel after the first couple of washes and has gradually gotten worse to the point where now there's very little colour to the design and the holiday scene looks very monotone with only a vague outline being visible in places. If this was daytime wear I'd have thrown it in the bin by now as the pyjama top really does look tatty, it's a shame as the fabric hasn't faded at all with the top remaining a vibrant pink colour and this 'peeling transfer' issue has been going on for so long with Peppa Pig clothes that really it should have been addressed by now. The Peppa Pig logo on the trousers hasn't been damaged at all and is still highly visible, which is odd as the fabric and transfer look exactly the same as the top so I can't see why that's suffered but the trousers haven't!
The construction of the pyjamas is excellent, I'm impressed with smooth straight seams and perfect shaping to both top and trousers. The bottom hem of the trousers is frilled slightly which I'm not sure I like being 3/4 length, Hollie loves the shallow frill but I think it looks a bit weird with the leg length. As Hollie has grown over the last twelve months the trousers have obviously got shorter but the fit is such that wherever they reach on her leg they look right; now they're what she calls Pantaloon length (after a visit to the Black Country Museum!) which is just below the knee but crucially the width of the leg and bottom section (for what of a better description!) is enough that despite the fact she's growing there's still plenty of room in them. The same isn't true of the top, which now just looks like a t-shirt that's too small but you can't have everything!
I can't fault these at all (other than the nasty peeling, but I guessed that would happen before I even bought the pyjamas as I have lots of experience with Peppa Pig!) and Hollie has ensured I've had my money's worth out of this purchase. She loves them even now the transfer makes the top look such a mess and they've won a place in my heart as they've always looked so lovely on her - in fact I'm currently searching out some non-character pyjamas in the same style as I think the sizing and overall style is absolutely fantastic for summer night-wear. The fabric is reasonably lightweight (not thin, cooling) so if she's been wearing her dressing gown over the colder months this also sits correctly on her body over the pyjamas - this isn't always true of kids pyjamas as some tend to be overly bulky (especially those godforsaken 'onesies' which all my kids bizarrely love) and that causes uncomfortable lumps and bumps underneath the dressing gown. Hell, Hollie even traveled to hospital in these pyjamas when she was poorly just before Christmas and I didn't want to pause to get her dressed as we bundled her into the car - her coat over the pyjamas kept her warm on the journey and she had a whale of a time in the waiting room explaining Peppa Pig to a large Armenian family who had never heard of our friendly little pig!
One thing that my daughter never seems to have is pyjamas. Whenever it is bedtime she conveniently can never find a clean set, so knowing how much she loves Miss Peppa Pig and wanting to get some good use of my amazon vouchers I scouted about for a really nice looking set within a reasonable price. These currently cost £3.83 in my daughters size (3-4 year old) and delivery was £2.95 so altogether £6.78 which didn't sound too bad.
The design of these pyjamas is quite simple, the top is a fuschia pink colour, with a picture of Peppa pig holding an ice lolly on the front with a house either side of her, ad a sun in the sky with flowers and hearts etc. The label inside has a Peppa Pig tag attached and it says Peppa pig in the standard design on the interior so it seems a genuine and not a cheap copy. The pictures on the front of the top however does seem a bit cheap as it is clearly printed on, and feels as though it will wear off sooner rather than later but I suppose for the price I paid I won't complain too much.
The trousers, I have to say I was disappointed with when opening the packaging. They are more of a baby pink colour so don't entirely co-ordinate with the top but they also have a Peppa pig logo at the bottom so my daughter knows these are a set. Anyway, when my daughter first tried these on I thought they had sent the wrong size as they looked too short! Upon further reading of the description on amazon, I then discovered the trousers are "cropped" trousers so designed to only reach the knee or so. I thought this was quite misleading as in the picture, the trousers are clearly folded over so you cannot really gage an idea of the length and I just assumed they were full length trousers.
Nevertheless my daughter loves these pyjamas and they have been great for her to wear to bed over recent nights where the weather is warmer. They are made from 100% cotton so they are soft and the material does not rub or irritate my daughter's skin at all. The quality does feel a bit cheap, probably something I'd expect to buy from Primark or somewhere, but not awful so that I wouldn't let her wear it - after all she's only got it on to go to bed, no-one is really going to see it under the covers!
In terms of sizing, these pyjamas come in 12-18 months, 18 - 24 months, 2 -3 years and 3 - 4 years and so of course I bought my daughter the aged 3 - 4 years as she is 3 years old. The pyjamas fit her perfectly and I would even say with the top she has a lot more wear out of it as it is a nice baggy fit giving her freedom to move and roll around in her sleep!
In terms of washing, these are machine washable up to 40 degrees, and I have had washed these in the washing machine on 30 degrees and they have been fine. They cannot be used in the tumble dryer and to be ironed (not sure why anyone irons pyjamas!) this should be done on reverse as of course the design on the front will just get stuck to the iron!
Overall I have to give these pyjamas 3 stars! My daughter loves it but sometimes I wonder if she'd love a pile of rubbish with a picture of peppa pig on the front to be honest. They are a decent quality for what I paid, was just a bit annoyed at the shortness of the trousers as they aren't the pyjamas I had in mind, but I wasn't prepared to go through the hassle to return them on this basis. Nevertheless they do the good job of giving my daughter something to wear to bed that she loves so I would recommend them to anyone wanting a nice set of peppa pj's for their little one.
