“ Manufacturer: Character World / Type: Cushion „
My little girl adores Peppa pig and so she has lots of Peppa pig branded items in her room. When I came across this cushion I thought it would be perfect to go on her bed and it has been a huge hit. The cushion is a good size for a character cushion and when you first buy the cushion it feels nice and soft. There seems to be adequate filling inside to make it comfy, and at around £7 it is not overly expensive for a character cushion. We purchased ours from B & M discount store but it is also available online for the same price.
The bright colours are attractive to any child but of course the large image of Peppa sitting on the cushion really helps with its appeal. There are flowers, and lots of bright colours to draw little one in. It is fairly consistent with the rest of the Peppa pig range and so it fits in perfect in her bedroom with matching bedding and curtains, despite it being slightly different in design. The huge Peppa is easily recognisable and the added floral pattern is perfect for any little girl.
My little girl was amazed that she could lay her head on Peppa and began using it straight away. She now uses it all the time especially while we are having quiet time on the sofa. She looks rally comfy while lying on the pillow, and although from touch it feels a little bumpy this does not seem to bother her at all. After just a week I noticed that the stuffing seemed to be falling to one side in the pillow. It felt a little uneven and the fabric was hanging loose to one side. It can be shaken into place again but it does feel as if the cushion is lacking all of the filling it needs. For the price we paid I wasn't expecting luxury but it just feels like it is lacking a little.
The cover is not removable and it does become rather mucky with time, so I tend to stick it on a low heat wash which brings it up well. The colours are all still bright and vivid and it has held its shape and size well. I did worry it may make the uneven stuffing more noticeable but it does not seem to have a negative effect. The cushion is still soft to touch it just needs plumping and shaking before laying it out to dry. This really helps make the cushion last a little longer as it does not come up well with just a wiper from a cloth.
Overall we really like this cushion it is not a huge luxurious pillow, but my little girl still finds it perfectly usable. It is pretty and matches other Peppa pig accessories well, so would fit in with a Peppa pig branded room. It is a good size for children and provides a little extra comfort for them. It is light enough to be carried on long journeys to be used in the car and has received a fair amount of use in our house. I would recommend this for anyone looking for a Peppa cushion, but just do not expect a luxury finish.
My youngest daughter is a huge Peppa Pig fan so a couple of months ago when we bought her a grown up bed we bought her a Peppa Pig bed set and a Peppa Pig cushion to go on her bed too. When Emily first saw her Peppa Pig bedroom she was completely thrilled and when she goes up to bed on a night she tells us she's going "up to pig"
We bought the cushion at the same time as her bedding from B & M which for anyone who doesn't know is a discount style store which sells allsorts, we paid £6.99 for the cushion which we thought as it is a character item isn't too badly priced.
The cushion is slightly rectangular rather than being a normal square shape and has a fleecy feel to it, it has a large picture of Peppa Pig to the left of the cushion and brightly coloured flowers around her to the right side of the cushion. The colours of the cushion are lovely all pinks, purples and yellows although I find it strange that Peppa hasn't got her well known red dress on.
One thing that I was really pleased with on this cushion is that there is no zip as our daughter is only 2 I liked this however a few weeks ago she was sick and caught her cushion so we washed it at 40 degrees as instructed and I now feel that the cushion is a little lumpy which it wasn't when it was new.
My daughter loves this cushion and she lays on it reading her books which I think looks very cute, I think it is very pretty and the colours are lovely but it could have been a bit better quality.
My niece loves Peppa Pig so to even out our couch a little (which is already home to a Cars cushion) she has the Peppa Pig 'Adorable' plush cushion. Made from 100% polyester the cushion is fleecy so comfortable to lie on but still easy to wash.
I don't have many complaints about the cushion itself but having paid £7.99 for it I do feel it is overpriced for what it is. The cushion pad is not plump or luxuriant so you are paying for the character. It is a good size though at 14 x 13" - a little longer in width than height and brightly coloured with the large Peppa Pig and retro flowers with button centres.
The cover isn't removable so if it does needs washed the whole thing can go in the washing machine at 40 degrees. To begin with the cover was very soft when rubbing the pile one way and a little rougher the other way. Over time it is still soft to the touch but the picture does slightly break up as though the cushion is moulting. This is only really a little more apparent on the darker pink background as it's the white showing up behind so the lighter pink of Peppa's face isn't affected as much. The back of the cushion is just a solid pink and doesn't suffer from the same problem.
It is a very girly cushion with all its pinks and purples but my nephew is still a Peppa fan too and it's just another cushion to add to his tower so he's more than happy to play with it too.
If you've got a Peppa fan that is likely to get a lot of use out of it then it does make a little better value. It's not a bad product for what it is.
