Peppa Pig Funtime Fire Station
Advantages: Emily likes it
Disadvantages: Not very interesting as role play, too high RRP
My eldest daughter was bought this for her birthday but for all she loved Peppa pig at the time she isn't really one for pretend play so it just ended up being put in her wardrobe and never played with. We had a sort out of her wardrobe recently and have passed a number of things down to her younger sister one of which was this and she loves it.
The set is currently for sale on Amazon at £14.99 which I would never pay as it is simply not worth it but I have previously seen these on offer at £5 in Asda when they have had a character promotion running.
The set is basically a plastic pretend fire station (apparently) a little Peppa Pig figure dressed up in a fire outfit and a pole to slide down and comes packaged in an open fronted cardboard box although there is nothing really to have a try of before you buy it.
The fire station is made of plastic and is open at the back so that your child can put Peppa inside, there are a set of double doors on the side which open, then it has three sets of windows on the front of the building along with some roof windows. On the side there are stickers which picture a wound up hose and a ladder then inside you have a little desk and some more stickers such as a phone, a picture of Fire piggy Mummy and a fire bell. The roof is raised in steps all the way up and has black detailing on it to make it look like the roof is made of loads of little tiles which I thought was quite good detailing.
The pole to slide down is made of grey plastic and has a clip to put Peppa on however it really doesn't hold very well and a child cannot put Peppa on themselves and Emily became very bored very quick with it.
The Peppa figure is only about an inch and a half in height and is the usual pale pink in colour but she is wearing bright yellow fire overalls and black boots, the arms and legs are moveable and even though they are pretty narrow they are actually quite strong.
Sophie had no interest at all with this set however Emily will play with it for ages, she doesn't play as in pretending she is calling Peppa out for a fire but instead she spends ages putting all the character figures she has from the show in and out of the doors.
I would say that this is nowhere near worth £15 but at £5 it has certainly amused Emily for ages, the set is pretty sturdy and is nice and bright but to be honest I don't understand why a fire station set has even been released as I have never seen an episode where Peppa is a fire woman only Mummy pig and believe me we have watched loads of episodes.
