Peppa Pig Night Night Slippers
Advantages: Very sweet and feminine looking, good sturdy design, comfortable for little feet
Disadvantages: The Velcro is a hair collector!
I bought these Peppa Pig slippers for my three year old daughter last year, they were in a closing down sale and although the pair I bought were originally too big I knew she'd quickly grow into them. And she did, by February her feet had grown and she was proudly wearing her Peppa slippers.
She'd still be wearing them now, but they've honestly had far too much wear and sadly won't last much longer. February to the start of May might not sound too impressive, but it's better than you think as Hollie is notoriously hard on slippers so (believe me) this isn't a bad lifespan!
Hollie isn't much of a fan of Peppa Pig, she's just always preferred other programmes and characters. This is an important point as it shows to me that she's wearing these particular slippers because of how comfortable they are, not due to a penchant for the featured character. As Hollie doesn't watch too much Peppa Pig, by default I don't know much about it either! Peppa is a sweet looking little thing, pictured here in her nightie and holding her teddy - an obvious bedtime pose which unfortunately never once helped me to convince Hollie to have an early night!
The slippers are very obviously designed for girls, two shades of pink with a more feminine design overall than character slippers which are more unisex in style. The rubber sole is also pink, it's a very good sole actually which is more non-slip than it looks. It also blends in with the look of the slipper, something which is personally important to me as a pet hate is seeing a bright white sole next to brightly coloured fabric.
The Velcro strap makes these slippers good for small children; once you've undone the strap the two sides of the slipper open quite wide, this makes it easier for Hollie to slide her feet in and out of the slippers without help. The Velcro is good quality and has kept its stickiness, occasionally I have to clear hairs and general 'bits' to perk the effectiveness of the Velcro up but I'm used to that with my daughters' long hair by now!
The inside of the slippers are slightly furry, which makes them very comfortable, and the body of the slippers is also padded so this provides even more comfort and support for your little one. I can tell just by watching Hollie walking around and sitting in these slippers that they are perfect for her, and this isn't just the fact that the sizing is spot on but also because of the supportive shape of them.
Let me quickly tell you a bit about Hollie's slipper habits. She doesn't understand the difference between indoor and outdoor footwear; therefore these have not only been worn in the house, but also the garden - in the mud. They've been through the washing machine at least ten times and this hasn't done them much good, resulting in small holes near where the fabric of the slipper meets the sole. It doesn't take a master shoe-maker to know that this is going to spell the death of the slippers, asooner rather than later. For what I paid (£3.99) I'm not fussed as she's got plenty more pairs' of slippers, and despite the relative good quality of this Peppa Pig pair they have a throw-away feel which means I won't lose any sleep when they finally go the the great slipper shop in the sky.
Summary: A cute pair of slippers which have been good, but won't be overly missed.
