Advantages: Looks like the Peppa range
Disadvantages: Frustratingly unplayable with
First of all let me begin by saying that in our family we are huge Peppa fans. My toddler reads Peppa books, eats with her peppa cutlery, sleeps in her peppa pj's - you get the picture....
This probably makes this toy all the more disappointing - it seems like the worst sort of betrayal from our piggie pal. This toy, which, as you can see from the photo is a set containing Peppa and family and is about 20cm long by about 10cm high should be SO much better.
So what is wrong with it? First of all design wise, you have to wonder if the person who came up with it has ever seen, let alone interacted with a child. I can't believe that it was tested by children as I feel sure they would have been as unimpressed as mine.
It doesn't wheel along the floor properly without coming apart, the awning is meant to be rolled out with a wheel that even an adult would struggle to use, the characters, though of good quality, don't sit easily on the furniture. There is so much wrong with this toy - none of the bits quite work and a child can't easily put the seats in and out of the van. Though there is some play value to be had from this toy from putting everything in and out and playing imaginatively with the figures (the little bbq is particularly cute overall it's just a bit of a dud, not well made and it hasn't particularly been much played with in the time that we have owned it and visiting kids aren't keen either.
Graphically the toy is a good representation of our beloved Peppa but in my opinion they should have licensed this to someone more able to come up with a quality, playable with item. This fails to deliver and at the £13 I paid for it from www.amazon.co.uk is poor value for money in my opinon. If you really need some tangible Peppa in your life you would be better off buying some playfigures by themselves or investigating other sets.
Summary: Not a good toy at all.
