Peppa Pig Campervan Playset
Advantages: Peppa Pig
Disadvantages: Roof falls off too much
My daughter received a huge amount of toys for her second birthday last November. Some were instant hits with her and some, like this Peppa Pig campervan, were not.
The set my daughter received is slightly different to the set in the picture. This is because it didn't come with as many accessories. Our set had the campervan, the table and one figurine of Peppa Pig. I'm not really sure why it didn't contain as many accessories, maybe they would have enhanced by daughters experience with this toy but I cannot be sure.
Straight from the word go my daughter had problems pushing the campervan, it is kind of cut in half so the top half including the windows and roof can be taken off to put figures inside etc. The way in which the two halves are separated means that when trying to move the campervan around as a whole, the top just comes straight off. This makes it near on impossible for my daughter to push as a whole as she usually tries to push it from the back. I've tried pushing it from the top and it just tips the campervan over, nightmare.
The accessories with our set aren't as exciting as the accessories included in the picture, we have the table, Peppa figurine and the two set of chairs. The chairs come from the inside of the campervan, they are easy to pull out of the campervan so have two uses. One use is as the normal seats in the campervan and the other to use beside the picnic table so Peppa has somewhere to sit when eating at the table. The table is quite basic, the legs can be folded up so that it fits into the campervan, it has plates painted on the table to give it a little decoration. The Peppa Pig figurine is the exactly the same as the figurines that come with all other Peppa Pig play sets with bendable arms and legs.
Each one of the accessories fits inside the campervan so that when it's not being played with they can all be stored together. This sounds great in theory, but the issue with the top of the campervan falling off all of the time, it is only a good place for storage if it is sat in the bottom of my daughter toy box stood up so the lid doesn't fall off and the pieces don't get lost amongst my daughters other toys.
This set hasn't been played with much. The top half of the campervan coming off really makes this toy useless unless you have a child that likes pushing round half of a vehicle, my daughter doesn't, so it gets played with once in a blue moon.
I'm not sure how much my daughters uncle paid for this set, but I found an identical set on Amazon for £13. The campervan play set that includes more accessories is, of course, more expensive.
I wouldn't recommend this play set for Peppa Pig fans, the problem with the top half of the campervan falling off constantly is annoying both for my daughter and for me. It's destined to live life at the bottom of the toy box!
