“ Type: Cars „
This toy is made of strong red plastic. with 4 black wheels and a pretend windscreen. There are markings for the doors and lights on the car and little wingmirrors and steering wheel. In the front of the car is Daddy Pig and Mummy Pig and in the back of the car is Peppa Pig and George Pig. The car costs around £19 and takes 3 x AAA batteries.
For some reason all the characters are stuck in the car and cannot be removed apart from George who can be taken in and out. Peppa Pig has markings of her arms on her body but Daddy and Mummy Pig don't seem to have any arms! There is detail of Daddy Pigs beard and glasses on his face and markings of little rosy cheeks on all the characters.
The car makes a beeping sound and then a little bit of the music is played before it sets off. Mummy pigs nose also makes a snorting sound.
My daughter was really not impressed with this toy, she likes to take the figures out and make up little stories but with them being fixed she just gets annoyed. The car also doesn't go very far on carpet.
This is another toy that was bought for my neice but as she lives across the road, some of her toys are kept here for when she comes to play and this is one of them.
In the car, there is mummy, daddy and peppa fixed in. They cant be taken out, which she doesnt seem to mind, but I suppose some kids might get annoyed by this. There is also a spare seat in the back of the car. When you push down the dad, the theme tune plays and the car moves forward a few feet. One major problem I think is that its really hard to push down. We got it her when she was one, and now at nearly two and a half she still has trouble with it. The ears hurt your hand after a while too. However, if you push mummy down, which is quite a bit easier and she manages,, the tune still plays but the car doesnt move . Not really a proble because she just pushes it forward, but again, if your child is likely to get frustrated because they cant push the figures down, then I'd wait to buy this until they are definately old enough to push them down.
She has hours of fun making bridges for it to go under, pushing it under peoples legs and generally whizzing it around the room. I think most kids love plying with toy cars and this is bonus for all peppa pig lovers as it has the characters and plays the theme tune along with some nice oinking noises.
Unfortuntey, george isnt in the car, which is a shame, as I think that would have been better than leaving a spare seat. Also, the theme tune doesnt play very long, and the car doesnt move very far. I dont think it matters too much, but like I say, after having to keep pressing down the figures it hurts even my hands, never mind a child.
The price when we got it was around 13 quid I think, which isn't bad but with the faults Im not sure if its worth it. If your child loves peppa pig and cars I would say you should buy it, but otherwise you might be able to geta better toy for the money.
The Peppa Pig Push and Go car is one of many Peppa toys my 2 daughters (aged 2 and 4) own.
The car is about 8 inches long, 5 inches wide and 3 inches high. It is made of bright red plastic and has 4 rotating black wheels so you can roll it along the floor quite well.
The car has 4 characters sitting in it - Daddy Pig, Mummy Pig and Peppa. They are moulded to the car and can't be removed. There is a spare seat in the back so you can sit any of your extra characters in for a ride.
On the bottom of the car is an on/off/try me switch. When you switch the car on you press Mummy pig down and the car beeps and then plays the Peppa Pig theme tune before going "oink oink".
The car takes 3 AAA batteries, although there is also an inbuilt "try me" battery which lasts for ages. The battery compartment needs to be opened with a screwdriver.
When you press Daddy Pig down you get the same sound effect but the pressing action also winds the car's wheels up so the car will shoot off by itself - very effective if you have wooden floors as it will travel several feet.
My daughters can make the car roll by themselves and will spend ages sending it backwards and forwards across the floor to each other.
The car would have been better if you could have removed Peppa and I was surprised that George Pig wasn't included - especially as there seems to be an empty space in the car for him.
I only paid £4.99 for this toy in B&M bargains, which I think was quite good value as Peppa toys can be really expensive and this has lots of play possibilities for little Peppa fans.
Peppa Pig Car
Peppa Pig on the Move
Peppa Pig is a children's animated television programme which my daughter has recently fallen in love with. Each episode is only five minutes long so keeps her attention really well, possibly one of the reasons that she loves it so much. The episodes follow a young pig called Peppa and her family and friends, each of which are different types of lovable animals. Episodes feature every day activities such as school and going to the park with some really funny moments that even I have to laugh at.
So of course, as my daughters birthday approached, when people asked what would she like, I had to say Peppa Pig - especially as she had just learnt to sing the theme tune!
PEPPA PIGS CAR
There are a few versions of this particular car, one of which even has a steering wheel for the child to drive the car themselves which looks great and may be on the list for another time! This car, though, comes within a multi-pack of Peppa Pig which also include the sea-saw playset and grandpas train set. It also can be sold separately so please make sure you know whether you are purchasing the sound version or the silent version of the car to avoid disappointment.
The car is exactly like Daddy Pigs car in the series, with red colouring on the outside and soft brown colour on the inside seats. Within the car sits Daddy pig, Mummy pig and Peppa pig as well as Peppas little brother, George. Unfortunately only George pig comes out of the car, the others are stuck inside and unable to be removed at all which is a shame. I believe this is because many of these cars were made with sounds and able to push Daddy pig down to make the car go along the floor on its own, though this car actually doesn't do any of that - no sounds, no moving on its own - it is simply the car. Mummy pig wobbles a little in the car and underneath the car is a battery compartment though with no battery components within it, and a little sticker saying 'Important this is a non-electronic item. No batteries required'. It also has little speaker holes, though again a useless part to the car as it has no sounds at all. I think that they must have made all the cars to originally be the same and then decided to have two different versions which is not really advertised and so many children may get disappointed if their parents do not realise, as we didn't, that the car has no sounds at all.
The car itself is quite sturdy though there are parts which I can see breaking easily if really rough play occurs such as the windscreen which bends when pushed and also the wing mirrors on each side of the car. The rest of the car is pretty durable though which is good.
As mentioned above, Daddy, mummy and Peppa pig all stay in the car, which again is a little annoying as I feel that when they decided to make the car without sound or movable areas then there was no need to keep the figures stuck in the car but I guess there is no use in complaining, especially as my daughter doesn't really mind as she was also brought a whole set of Peppa Pig figures for her birthday. George, on the other hand, does come out of the car. George is the smallest Peppa Pig figure though is quite sturdy with moving arms and legs. With overly rough play the thin legs and arms could perhaps be snapped off, though on the whole they are quite durable.
The car is very light and easy for a young child to pick up and rolls along the floor really easily, even with thick carpet which is a plus.
My daughter squealed with delight when she opened this toy on her birthday and it has gone from house to car to shops with us since. She doesn't know any difference with the sounds so is not disappointed at all, and loves the car for what it is. She does get a little frustrated that three of the four figures are 'stuck' as she puts it, though she is learning to realise that no matter how hard she pulls at them, they will not come out. She loves taking George out and playing with him with her other figures and playsets and overall, I am pleased with the car for the fact that my daughter is happy with it though I do wish that we had realised about the two different types of the same car to begin with as I am sure the sounds and the proper push and go system would have made it even more fun for my daughter.
The noisy range of cars are more widely available it seems and range from £12 upwards from online stores and also good highstreet stores. This particular car can be found for only slightly cheaper at £10 upwards which is a little bit of a rip of to be quite honest. It can sometimes be found on ebay from a starting price of £0.99 upwards but still does go up quite quickly in bids.
This car also comes part of the big Peppa Pig set with train and roundabout set though no matter how hard I have tried, I can not find the price for this. As it was a gift from my daughters nanny I will have to subtly try to ask her the price and will update this review when I find out.
The car itself is quite sturdy, though certainly not unbreakable in the slightest. The let down is the fact is has no noise and still the figures are stuck fast in them, and the price is a little high considering the noisy car is not much more. My daughter, though, loves this car, so really it was a great gift for her, and that is all that matters in the end.
As a stand alone toy it is average I would say and compared to other Peppa Pig toys, it is a little bit of a let down, though only in my eyes - not my daughters.
Would I recommend the toy? I would recommend it only if you can find it at a lower price, otherwise I would say go for the one with sounds.
Some other toys in this Peppa Pig Series include:
Many Figures sets
Playground sets which include seasaw, slide and swings
My daughter has gone Peppa Pig mad over the last couple of months, and one of the toys she received for her birthday was the push and go car. This is one of the older models from the Peppa Pig range being sold, but is still a popular toy being sold alongside the newer toys in the range.
At approx £12.99, it is averagely priced against other Peppa toys, and it may eve do more for your money that some of the newer models. I think it depends on what you want out of a toy.
The Peppa Pig car comes with the family pigs fixed into the car. I immediately thought it would have been nice if you were able t remove some of them, but then I realised that that car wouldn't operate if you did that, and they figures would more than likely be lost very quickly, so in hind sight and having this car in my lounge for a while now, I am thankful the figures stay in one place.
In a nice red colour, the car isn't overly big, but is certainly a good size for a toddler to push along and be able to carry around without too much trouble. The car is sturdy and has stood up against being dropped a few times wince we've had it, but I do worry about the little wing mirrors as they look like they would snap off with too much friction. The windscreen of the car is also a small piece of plastic but this looks sturdier than the mirrors and I have more faith in this.
The car is called a push and go car for a reason. If you push down on Daddy pig the car will make a beep beep sound and go forwards on the floor. I have found this works a lot better on laminate or thin carpet. Thicker carpet hinders the car and restricts the easy movement.
Once pressed the car will move for a good few feet across the room before coming to a stop which my daughter loves, but unfortunately she isn't strong enough to push down on Daddy pig just yet which is a shame as the car is marketed from 18 months and over.
She can however push Mummy pig's head and get the music that plays from this action. This amuses her just as much as hearing Daddy pig and watching the car go.
The car can also be used as a manual push along car which is what I find she does a lot. Driving it around and playing her own little Peppa Pig game is great to watch at such a young age.
I think the car is good value for the money considering you can buy the new beach buggy at a higher price and it doesn't go along. The negatives to this car are that you will need three AA batteries, and whilst they will last a long time, I never remember to turn the car off at the end of the day so it stays permanently on.
Daddy Pig could have been made in a different way to enable younger children to be able to make the car go, but as she gets older, I can she will have no trouble making her car go along the floor.
I think it's a great addition to the Peppa Pig family. The sounds don't continue for too long which makes all parents want to take the batteries out, and it's a nice cheery turn rather than a loud dull roar that some toys have.
My 23 month old granddaughter is a huge Peppa Pig fan so when I saw this Push N Go Car reduced from £12.99 to just £5 in my local discount store I decided to buy it for her as a treat.
The car is just like Peppa's little red car in the programme and even without the figures inside I would say it's easily recognisable to my granddaughter, and me actually as I love Peppa Pig almost as much as she does! Mummy and Daddy Pig are sitting in the front seats while Peppa and her little brother George are in the back, all the characters are wearing the same clothes as they wear on the TV which is great in my opinion as it makes the toy more in keeping with the programme - recently my daughter bought her a Dora dolly that was wearing a completely different style of clothing to what my granddaughter usually sees her in on the TV and she really isn't as interested in this doll as she would have been as consistency is so important for young children.
To activate the car you simply need to push Daddy Pig down, as soon as you've done this the car will make 'beep, beep' sounds and then play the sweet Peppa Pig theme tune before zooming off at quite a pace across my wooden floor. The car moves smoothly and will also work on carpet although on the carpet it does get stuck sometimes and will wheel around in circles which my granddaughter shrieks with laughter at, although I find it rather irritating. Daddy Pig is easy to push down and from the very first time my granddaughter was able to activate the car herself with no help from me, although sometimes she'll forget and try pushing Mummy Pig which annoys her as this particular character doesn't even move down let alone make the car drive!
Of the four characters, Peppa is the only one which can be removed. I find this strange as Peppa is surely the most important character in the programme (although George is very, very sweet) and the fact that she can be taken out of the car means she will invariably be the one that is lost. Mind you, the fact that the characters cannot be taken out makes cleaning the inside of the car a bit of a pain as to get in between the rather portly Mummy and Daddy Pig I have had to start using my older granddaughter's recorder cleaning stick as there is simply not enough room for me to get a finger between the characters.
The car seems to be very durable, it's not wobbly or wonky despite the fact that it has been played with on a daily basis since I bought it four months ago. None of the paint has worn away from any part of the car or little piggy characters, even the flimsy looking wing mirrors are still in one piece which surprised me as I had thought these would be the first thing to be broken. To be fair my granddaughter is surprisingly careful with her toys considering how young she still is, but even so for the car to still be looking as good as new is testament to the excellent quality of this toy.
It takes three AAA batteries which will last forever and a day as the car doesn't take an awful lot of power to get it going, in fact these are still the initial batteries which came with the toy and as I said earlier this is one of my granddaughters most frequently used toys and has been for some months now.
I love watching my granddaughter playing with this toy. She is of an age now where she incorporates her toys into games and role playing and the car is often used to ferry 'Pep-Pig' to the 'sops' where she usually buys 'stawbres' and 'cwips' to share with 'Grrreerge' and 'Ollie' - for those of you not blessed with the ability to speak toddler this translates to 'Peppa Pig goes to the shops for strawberries and crisps to share with George and Hollie (my granddaughter)'! I'd say the car is good value for money even at its full price as it has good play value and despite the fact that it's not educational in itself, it is a good toy for young children to include in their games and the fact that it moves on its own power is a great delight to my granddaughter who generally has the attention span of a goldfish and quickly loses interest in toys which don't do anything.
It's suitable for babies of 18 months and over, while I don't usually agree with these ratings I think the manufacturer has got it spot on in this instance.
Hi as some of you may know but for the ones that don't i have 3 daughters and my middle daughter who is 2 is a nick jr fan and every time we turn over she asks for Peppa pig so when christmas came round we had no problems of thinking what to get her we got her the Peppa toys this brings me to my next review so happy reading and hope it helps you.
This car is easy to play with and brings joy to both my youngest children really, to get the car to move you have to press daddy pig down and let go then the car will drive away but before it moves you will here a beep beep and then the famous peppa pig tune. My youngest daughter loves chasing the car so it keeps them both very happy.
The car is orange in colour with daddy pig driving and mummy pig next to him and george in the back these figures you cant take out as for peppa you can the other characters are wearing the same colour clothes they wear in the cartoon.
The car i think is very strong but the only thing i think will break on it is the wing mirrors as these are only small and plastic but my daughter has thrown it around and as of yet its still in good condition so touch wood it will last.
The cleaning of the car is easy on the outside but inside is tricky to get in between mummy pig and daddy pig.
We brought ours from toys r us for £12.99 it requires 3 AAA batteries which goes in underneath it is recommended for 18 months +.
I would highly recommend this toy to anyone buying toys for a peppa pig fan as it brings joy to all that play with it. Thanks for reading.
Press Daddy Pig to make the car go! It gives a little Beep Beep, plays the Peppa Pig theme tune and off it goes.
