      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Definately recommend letting little ones watching this

      I love Peppa pig and I hope this review clearly explains why!

      Who is Peppa?

      Peppa pig is a piglet aged about 4-5 years old. She lives in a house with Mummy pig, Daddy pig and her little brother George who is about 18 months.

      She is a friendly piglet that has just started school with her friends. All her friends names begin with the same letter as the animal begins with for example her best friend is 'Suzie Sheep'. There is 'Zoe Zebra', 'Candy Cat', and 'Pedro Pony'. Peppa love having fun with her friends and loves jumping in muddy puddles. She is very chatty and speaks very clearly. George is younger and says basic words like 'dinosaur'

      Where do you find Peppa?

      Peppa pig has become a big brand initially a 2D TV series that is aired regularly on Nickelodeon swell as Channel 5 in the mornings. It is a 5 minute programme that is very basic so young children can follow the storyline easily. The writers have designed the storylines cleverly so they have a very basic plot, nothing too much happens and no-one ever talks over any one so you do not get confused. The pictures are also very bold and again very basic. There is never anything happening in the background so young children focus on what is happening and don't seem to lose the concentration.

      Our little girl got into Peppa when she was approximately 16months old and has been completely obsessed since.

      So my reason for loving Peppa Pig:

      Cleverly Channel 5 put it on in the morning at approximately 715 and 815 these are the times that parents are up and getting in the shower. I put channel 5 on and the minute the music starts I know I have 5 minutes to have a shower. This is perfect as I am aware she will not move and won't get distracted.

      I have downloaded Peppa pig on my iPhone and regularly use it for moments when you really need your 2year old to either calm down or be quiet, a wedding, in a restaurant when you have waited over an hour for food, in a traffic jam, first thing in the morning if I am knackered. I do not use TV to bring up my child and she is only allowed 2 episodes at a time and she is not allowed it every day as I found she was becoming addicted and waking in the night wanting her.

      Peppa pig has also helped our little one learn to count she has the Peppa pig laptop which has games she can play on, she is learning the alphabet with some of the branded toys.

      What else Peppa:

      Peppa has become massive for all children. There is now a 'Peppa pig world' which is a theme park set up for children as young as 6months. You have to pay for the adult tickets and children tickets are the same price at a whooping £21, children under 1metre are free. It has approximately 7 rides including a balloon ride, riding the clouds and 'Grandpa's little train'. It also has a water park you can go in which has puddles and fountains children can play in. There is an inside area which is soft play and is brilliant. It has been designed so children of all ages can enjoy it but parents can go in as well if their children need help. We went when our little one was 18months and she absolutely loved it. We had photos taken in Peppa pig's house with Peppa pig, we went into Peppa pig's house, and it was so cleverly set up and really well designed. We went first thing in the morning and didn't wait in any queues but it did get busy by lunch time.

      You can also buy bedsets, furniture, bean bags, toys, pens, paper, bags and the list goes on. Peppa is now massive. We haven't gone too over the top she has some Peppa pig clothes and a bean bag but haven't got too much as they do grow out of it by the time they get to school I hear.

      Summary:
      I love Peppa pig, I think the branding is very clever, the show is well written and the theme park is fantastic but I would search around for a deal as for a family of five it £100 which is mega money and quite ridiculous but you do get to use the whole park. I love my five minutes of peace in the morning when I have a shower. I love the fact when we get into a pickle and we are out I can put Peppa on and know she will be an angel child while she watches it. I love the fact she loves Peppa and Peppa gives her comfort at night as she now sleeps with Peppa as a pillow.

      I would definitely let any child watch Peppa it is inoffensive and with such a simple storyline they slowly learn things off it.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        Straightforward pre-school/first year children's animation

        "Peppa Pig" is a simple two dimensional animated cartoon series aimed at pre-school and first year primary school children. Its titular character is an anthropomorphised piglet in her first year at school. She has a little brother called George who spends most his time saying single words, such as "Dinosaur", or crying for some reason or another. There is also "Mummy Pig" and "Daddy Pig". Supporting cast members include Peppa's grandparents and members of their community that represented by other species from the domestic animal kingdom.

        Every five minute episode is geared towards a regular happening with occasional minor adventures. The main thrust of the series, like most of this programmes for this age group, is help explain problem solving and interaction in society. The general formula is that the children will learn something new either by having a new experience or by learning from the way they react to a regular situation. Great pains are taken to shown the distinction between Peppa's reaction, an adult's reaction and George's reaction. All characters are shown to be fallible in some way, often making mistakes, even the adults, which is quite refreshing. Most episodes end with either everyone falling around the place in uncontrollable fits of laughter (a bit of liberal version of what we used to see in 1980s action cartoons) about something only five year olds would really find humorous or with the apparent inarguable point that "Everybody love jumping up and down in muddy puddles". There is nothing a moderate contemporary parent would find offensive in our current time and, like the best young children's programmes, it isn't preachy either.

        "Peppa Pig" was first brought to my wife and my attention through the very well organized and scheduled "Milkshake" TV show on Channel 5. The show and others that also feature on 5 also get a lot of airplay through the Nick Jnr channel. Our daughter has literally been brought up with these shows in background during breakfast time. I couldn't help but notice just how popular "Peppa Pig" is compared to other children's TV programmes. She seems to be the one most featured when cards are sent into the "Milkshake" show, often gets a double-bill slot and the adverts are full of her merchandise. Incidentally the toys released under the "Peppa Pig" label, featuring Peppa and George in a spaceship and in medieval settings, seem to have nothing to do with the episodes of the series, which are firmly grounded in a type of humdrum everyday existence. This keeping to simplicity is at the root of the show's strength.

        One cannot help but draw immediate comparison to other British anthropomorphised little girl pig show, "Olivier", which also features on both C5's "Milkshake" and the Nick Jnr. channel. "Olivier" seems to feature a slightly more upper-middle class family with its lead title character being a few years older than Peppa. Whereas Peppa keeps to very basic 2D animation and very simple short storylines in line with a five year old's view of the world, "Olivier" is more complex and sophisticated in every way. It uses 3D and deals with an elder little girl's view of the world. However, despite being popular and a good children's TV show in many respects, it loses much of the holistic interaction you get with "Peppa Pig". "Olivier" is centred very much on its central character whereas "Peppa" shows more overall awareness of other members of society.

          A great show for the little ones... slightly annoying for the adult (as all cartoons are hehe)

          Peppa Pig

          So who is Peppa Pig?

          Peppa is a well loved animated children's character that is currently aired on Nickelodeon. Peppa is a pig, if you haven't already guessed and lives with her mum (mummy pig), dad (daddy pig) and her brother, George. Peppa is around 5 years old and is a loveable, friendly character - she can sometimes be very bossy and irritating though. I think George is about 3 years old, he is quite a lot smaller than Peppa, he has a favourite toy called Dinosaur.


          The Pig family live like us humans, they have a house at the very top of a very pointy hill. They all wear clothes and have bicycles and have almost everything we have. The pigs do still have their piggy "oink oink" which can be quite annoying when you pick up on the "oinking" between words haha.


          *****

          Where and how can I watch Peppa Pig?

          *****

          Peppa pig is always on the Nickelodeon channels. It has been around since 2004 so you will be able to pick up many DVD's too. A website is also dedicated to the family meaning that your little ones can venture on the website to watch episodes, play games and complete activities. It is full of bright colours that will definitely keep your young ones occupied.


          *****
          Characters
          *****

          Peppa Pig is predominately based about the family consisting of her, her parents and brother but many other characters are involved too. You will often find reference to the following family members: Grandpa Pig, Granny Pig, Uncle Pig, Auntie Pig & Cousin Chloe.

          Other than the Pigs- various other animal characters are on the show. I won't name everyone as it would go on forever but there is a family of Sheep, Cats, Dogs, Zebras, Donkeys and Elephant.... And much much more.


          So what do I think of the show? To be honest I find is utterly annoying, the snorting gets on my wick and the short episodes mean that you are constantly hearing the awful music that goes along with the show. On the other hand my two year old loves it. If I can put my frustration aside for one minute I should explain that the show has taught him a lot about colours, shapes and general everyday information. He knew what binoculars where for example and nobody had shown him - we later learned it was from the show.


          Children absolutely love Peppa! I haven't met one that doesn't. A vast variety of children's toys, games, bedroom furniture etc is not available in Peppa Pig design... even a Peppa Pug magazine.

          One would think she's taking over the world!!!

          Overall - a great show for the little ones... slightly annoying for the adult (as all cartoons are hehe)

            Disadvantages

            A great little cartoon

            I've been watching Peppa Pig regulary with my 2 children (now aged 4 and 2 and a half) for about 2 years now. In that time I think I've watched every singled episode at least 50 times.
            Each episode is only about 5 minutes long, so children don't have time to let their attention wander - episodes are usually shown in blocks of four.
            Peppa lives with her Mummy and Daddy and little brother George. Peppa goes to nursery and we often see her friends, Candy Cat, Suzy Sheep, Emily Elephant, Pedro Pony, Rebecca Rabbit and Danny Dog.
            Each episode sees Peppa doing something different, like going to playgroup, going camping, ice skating, sports day - you name it, she's probably done it! The dialogue is surprisingly funny, even for adults as Peppa really does speak and think the way you would expect a small child to. You'll often hear her asking questions similar to the ones your own young children come out with.
            As the episodes are so varied in their content I have found them quite educational and I'll often find my kids have learned a lot from watching them. For example, there is an episode about space where they talk about gravity in very simple terms - my children now know that gravity is what keeps up on the ground! In the Sports Day episode Peppa comes last in most of the races, at first she is upset, but by the end she understands that taking part is just as important as winning.
            The animation in Peppa Pig is quite simple, but I think this is quite appealing to young children as it is very easy on the eye. There is never anything scary in Peppa Pig, so it's suitable for the tiniest of tots.
            I can see us watching Peppa Pig for several years to come yet, so luckily I think it's a great cartoon for young children.

              Disadvantages

              Great fun show for kids and adults alike

              Given that my boy is waking incredibly early still, any little ray of light in the way of a kids TV show that we both enjoy, is to be snapped up.

              Peppa Pig is one such ray of light. Peppa Pig is centred (funnily enough) around a family of pigs, Peppa, her little brother George, and Mummy and Daddy Pig.

              It is a really sweet, happy little show, just 5 minutes long, about the day to day life of the family - the family go on holiday, go to the supermarket, go to the playground etc etc. Peppa and George are great little role models - although cheeky, they are always polite and do as they are told (eventually). Even though they are pigs, they are easy to identify with as they like the same things as the children watching - princesses (Peppa), dinosaurs (George) and of course jumping up and down in muddy puddles.

              Peppa and George have lots of friends, all different animals - and each animal communicates by words, but then does a little animal noise afterwards (Peppa and George give a good "snort" at the end of sentances). As well as adding humour, this helps children to identify which animals are which.

              Mummy and Daddy Pig are fun too - Mummy Pig is identified by her long eyelashes, and Daddy Pig by his glasses and big fat tummy. Also introduced are the parents of all the other animals - strangely enough, it
              always seems to be the female animals who have the responsible jobs - bus driver, vet etc, whilst the male ones seem to get themselves into bother (setting barbeques on fire etc) and need the female ones to help them out.

              Perhaps part of the appeal of the show is that as it is only 5 mins long, no-one gets bored watching it. It is shown on Five at 7am, and even though we should be getting on with starting the day, I make an exception and my boy and I enjoy cuddling up and watching this together. If you haven't found this show yet, give it a watch - even if you don't have a child as an excuse to watch it!

                Peppa pig and her family enjoy everyday activities

                My Daughter is 2 years old and loves Peppa Pig. Everyday we watch either the show on Nick Jr or DVD. Peppa Pig is a little girl who lives with her mummy Pig, Daddy Pig and her little brother George. It is very easy for children to identify with as Peppa lives the life of everyday children it shows them every day things like going to Nursery, Tooth fairy, school sports day and Swimming. Peppa has many animal friends like Danny Dog and Rebecca Rabbit. Peppa also visits her grandparents on the show. My daughter thinks its the best show and to be truthful I even like sitting and watching it with her. The show even teaches children right from wrong. Peppa and her family love jumping in muddy Puddles and one of the classic lines from the show is 'you cant jump in muddy puddles without your boots on'. I would recommend this show to anyone with young children and i think it is also very educational on day to day living.

                Advantages

                Disadvantages

                Stories revolving around a pig called Pepper.

                I have seen many reviews written about Pepper pig and thought I might give my opinion on the programme as I am forced to sit through it with my children almost every day.

                The programme is mostly about a small girl pig called Pepper (I believe she is supposed to be around 3 or 4), she has a little brother called George (who always says Grrrrrrrrr, dinosaur) and a daddy pig and a mummy pig. Most of the programmes are about them and what they get up to on a daily basis.
                We are often introduced to Pepper and Georges friends and quite a few stories revolve around what they get up to with them, including school, playing in the playground and meeting them on days out. Occasionally we have stories that have Granny and Granpa pig, either when they are visited or when they are looking after Pepper and George.

                All of the stories are very simple and easy for children to understand and generally most of them have a bit of meaning to them, ie, they try to teach the child viewer the rights and wrongs by having various characters (mainly Pepper) do something wrong and then realise what she has done and try and correct it or apologise if she's been naughty.

                The graphics are nothing to jump up and down about, but what you would expect for a young children's programme. The images are simple and very colourful and the music is catchy enough for a child to mimic and recognise.
                An episode will typically run for twenty minutes but this will be made up of short three to five minute stories.

                Now my daughter who is three, absolutely loves this programme, she is crazy about it. She not only watches it everyday, but she has god knows how many toys of it and also has a fair amount of dvds of various episodes. She can mimic the snorting sounds and recognises each and every character as they appear. Obviously the programme must be doing its job if it grips her attention that much.

                The funny thing is, my seven year old son actually watches it with his sister and you can see from the expressions on his face that he is enjoying it and taking in everything that is said. This tells me that Pepper pig attracts a fair age range.

                The only problem I have with this programme is that as an adult I can see that Pepper can be really naughty sometimes, and can get away with it. My son has even commented that she has done bad things before and noticed that it just gets laughed off.
                I also find that the characters seemed to take great joy at constantly having pops at the daddy pig and he always seems to be treated horribly. I know it is stupid to pick at something like that in a children's programme, but my children have often said how unfair they think daddy pig has been treated and how much they've disliked it.
                Obviously it must happen a lot or they wouldn't pick up on it. As a father myself, it is quite annoying to see a child's programme that constantly puts down and treats the father figure horribly. That's not really sending out a great message now!

                All in all, the daddy pig thing aside, this programme does have a lot of good points and is very entertaining for young children. It tries it's hardest to let children see the rights from wrongs and it does its best to have fun at the same time.
                I would definitely recommend this to all children, especially the younger ones. It's even quite enjoyable to watch from an adult prospective sometimes! As long as daddy pig is left alone! Lol.

                  Chances are - your kid will love it.

                  I have yet to meet a child under the age of 5 that doesnt adore Peppa Pig. Shes a fun cartoon character that my daughter watches every morning on channel 5's milkshake (although she can also be found on Nick Junior on sky/ virgin).

                  Each show itself lasts bout 10 minutes, and follows the life of Peppa Pig - a little girl pig who lives with her little brother George (who loves dinosaurs) and mummy and daddy pig. She goes off to school and plays with her animal friends (think Suzie Sheep and Danny Dog) and visits granny and grandpa pig, and trots off to the beach - and generally lives an average life of a little girl - but with lots of mishaps and chuckling.

                  I think the main reason that this appeals to kids is the lovely animation - it is really simple and bright, catching the eyes of very young children and understandable to those who are a little bit older. The storylines are really easy to understand and the voices are really appealing and diverse - peppas is high pitched and girly, whilst daddy pigs is deep and slightly bellowing.

                  Because the programmes only last 10 minutes, it means that the children dont have time to get bored whilst watching it - i think this was the first show my daughter watched the whole way through.

                  Theres tons of merchandise to accompany this programme - if your child loves it then you are sorted for birthday / christmas gifts, and its actually quite educational - peppa learns alot of life lessons along the way (things like sharing and helping etc).

                  Really nice cartoon - catch it on five at 7am (ish) every morning!

                  WHY PEPPA PIG IS SO SPECIAL IN MY HOUSE.

                  My son is a real live wire. He very rarely will sit down and watch any programme. One thing that he will watch from start to finish is Peppa pig. He is totally in love with this programme.

                  Basically the programme is a childrens cartoon which is shown on various Childrens channels. The programme consisits of Peppa pig, her brother george, her father.(daddy pig) and mammy pig. Although there are other characters who are integrated into the programmes. These include peppa's grandparents, friends Suzie sheep and Rebecca rabbit and various members of the community such as Dr Brown Bear.

                  Each episode lasts for only five minutes. I think this is why many children love this show. As it is short enough to keep their attention. Although the show is only five minutes, it always manages to convey a message within that short space of time.

                  What I love about this programme is its informative nature. Although it just seems like another cartoon. It actually carries great stories such as peppa going to the dentist. I think this is great as i have found this has alleviated my sons anxieties about visiting the dentist as he has seen peppa pig being brave so he will too.

                  I also love the moral messages hidden within the stories. These include such issues as the importance of sharing and listening to your parents. I really enjoy the way they convey the implications in a gentle yet thought provoking way.

                  The Cartoon itself is very bright and colourful. There is alot of use of vibrant colours and this adds to the viewing pleasure. The pigs themselves, are very cute with big eyes and cute smiles. Although they are very simplistic. This show is by no means going to win best graphics award. But i kind of appreciate the lack of emphasis on the cartoon drawings as it makes it seem more child friendly.

                  I love the way that they all fall over at the end of each show and giggle. This always makes me raise a smile. I also think it is incredibly cute how they snort in between words when conversing with one another. I just think this show provides a real feel good factor. It allows the child to escape for five minutes into a make believe land where pigs talk and play. But it also cleverly carries messages regarding lifes issues.

                  Peppa pig is aimed at the 2-5 age group all though my daughter is 9 and although she wont admit it, she still occasionally likes to watch this show. Peppa pig has become very popular in recent years. There is alot of merchandise that you can buy with peppa pig on. These include birthday cakes, clothing, bedroom curtains and bed spreads. I bought my three year old neice a pair of Peppa pig roller skates for Christmas and she adored them.

                  So all in all I have nothing but fondness for Peppa pig. Anything that can keep my five year old wild child amused for five minutes is amazing in my book. This great little cartoon is a colourful, joyful, fun and thought provoking programme. I Know my son loves it and I am pleased for him to watch this lovely little show.

                    A great kids show

                    Peppa Pig is a children's cartoon aimed mainly at toddlers. It appealed to my son when he was younger and now my two year old daughter thinks Peppa is great. I'm not advocating dumping children in front of the telly all the time, but I do think there is a time when telly can add to adults and children's lives in a positive way.

                    Each episode is approximately 5 minutes long. Peppa Pig is the star of the show. She is about 4 years old and lives at home with Mummy Pig, Daddy Pig and her little brother George. All the other characters come from animal families too. Her best friend is Suzy Sheep and her other friends include Rebecca Rabbit, Candy Cat, Pedro Pony and Danny Dog.

                    Each episode sees Peppa on some kind of adventure. Some examples include; Her buying new shoes with her mum, visiting Windy Castle on a family day out, treasure hunting at her grandparents house and ballet class with her friends.

                    I think the reason this show is so successful is because children can relate to it. Okay so the characters are all animals but the set up correlates to relationships they see in the real world. For example Peppa has a Granny and Grandpa Pig that she goes to visit and at nursery there are several children of her age that she is friends with. The other comparable thing is that the experiences Peppa has are ordinary everyday occurrences for children. These include Peppa going to ballet or to the park to feed the ducks. This gives kids something they can associate with. Peppa has a special teddy and this is common among most young children. This again makes children believe that what they do is acceptable because they see her interacting with her favourite toy the way they do with theirs.

                    I think this is a great way to make kids feel that there routines are natural, giving them a sense of belonging in the world. It also helps them to understand people's feelings. Peppa often comments how she feels, whether that is happy, jealous or cross. This helps children understand that a range of emotions are acceptable, that others have feelings too and how to react when you do feel, particularly bad emotions especially towards others. Mummy and Daddy Pig are always on hand to offer advice and help.

                    The end of each episode closes with a little message usually from Daddy Pig. This is nothing heavy usually something like 'Wasn't it a lovely day we spent together as a family' and then they all fall down on their backs laughing and waving their legs in the air. This finishes the episodes perfectly as it gives a sense of cheerfulness to the experience which I think is important after all it is supposed to be a happy encounter for the child.

                    My favourite part is of the programme is the beginning where they introduce Peppa and her family. For each family member they introduce they do their pig grunt noise which gets louder as they go through them.

                    This is one of those kids' shows that as an adult I can easily watch. I don't find it ridiculous or stupid and I would actually go as far as saying that I quite enjoy sitting with my little ones watching this.

                      a great 7 minutes spent

                      Peppa Pig....


                      Peppa Pig is the main character of a television cartoon aimed at pre-school children. It is on channel 5 every mornings at 8.15 and I believe at 7.10 as well but we never have the TV on that early! It is also shown on a few different channels on Sky but I am not sure which as this isn't a service I subscribe to. Peppa Pig is, as the name suggests, a cartoon pig called Peppa who lives with her brother George and Mummy and Daddy pig.

                      There are lots of other characters in the cartoon and all of these are animals and friends of Peppa and George. All Peppa's friends have parents or even grandparents that are often in the show too doing jobs or getting together. Peppa's friends include Rebecca Rabbit, Zoe Zebra, Danny Dog to name but a few, but you get the gist.

                      The show runs for around 7 or so minutes per time and Jack is glued to the set for the entire time. It does however seem to be a show more suitable for girls but this only feels like this because Peppa being the main character and being a girl. Jack does seem to prefer George though as Georges favourite thing is dinosaurs and his dinosaur toy and Jack too is obsessed by dinosaurs.

                      The show is very educational each and every episode and I even find myself glued to some of them. There are ones that deal with counting and have Peppa, her friends and George playing leap frog and counting. Both mine and Jacks favourite is an episode called "Digging up the Road" which starts the whole Pig family taking a trip to the park but on the way they get way laid by Mr Bull "Digging up the Road" due to, as Peppa repeats as, cleckity cables (electricity).

                      All of them are thoroughly enjoyable to watch and Jack often wants to watch several back to back which is lucky as most of the time I will record them. All the stories are simple to follow yet effective in getting the points across. They have good subjects and have been made in a generally nice way. The cartoon is bright and cheerful and perfect for all children under 5 and even those over.

                      All in all I cant fault this programme and feel it is a real winner. It has everything you could want from a child's cartoon with all the songs, learning and the general bright cheeriness of the whole show. I could award it nothing more than 5/5 stars and give it a high recommendation.

                      I do hope this has been of some help/interest to you.

                      Many thanks for taking the time to read.

                      Peppa and her friends have lots of fun, and so does my son watching!

                      Peppa Pig and her brother George are favourites in our house. My son loves them. Peppa Pig episodes are 'short and sweet'. Recently there were more episodes new ones that came out which i have to say was a relief as i was getting bored of them.

                      They are appealing to children as they are quick and amusing. The episodes relate to real life and show Peppa and George being polite and well behaved. George can be a little mardy and Peppa is old before her time so quite like real children. I often find myself reminding my son of a particular episode to encourage him to behave or do something we need him to do! For example when we went to the dentist i explained that Peppa and George had been to the dentist and let the dentist look at their teeth. All the friends and other families in the programme are different animals which is nice as it teaches them different animals

                      My husband seems to enjoy the programme as much as my son sometimes. Peppa Pig can be found on Nick Jr and Nick Jr 2 and is sometimes on Milkshake on Five as well i believe.

                      There is lots of Peppa Pig merchandise you can buy for your child, more so for the girls I find although more for boys is coming out. Next do clothes with Peppa Pig on, many shops sell toys, bedding i have seen, books (most which relate to a tv episode), dinner ware (childrens plastic ones) and many other things.

                      Although it doesnt teach numbers, letters etc specifically i find it teaches good behaviour and shows everyday life in a simple way children can understand.

                      Overall really worth getting your child into

                      Peppa Pig is a very cheeky little pig who lives with her younger brother George, Mummy Pig and Daddy Pig. She is extremely fond of playing games and dressing up, but above all loves to splash around in muddy puddles.

                      My son is nearly two years old and has really got into Peppa Pig in a big way. Every morning just after 8am on Channel 5 at the moment they show two Peppa Pig cartoons back to back. The cartoons themselves are probably less than 5 minutes each one so are very quick. That's proabably the beauty of them and why kids find them so enjoyable, as they are very quick stories and they don't get bored with it.

                      Every episode sees them taking part in a different activity like for example washing Daddy Pig's football kit or going to the Dentist. They also from time to time visit Grandpa and Grandma Pig too. Peppa's friends appear in certain episodes too and are all different types of animals from sheep to rabbits.

                      The great thing about this particular TV programme is that each episode is an education for your child and is simple and short enough to understand so they don't get swamped by information. It just gives them brief snippets of life like washing clothes or running and other things like that.

                      A great idea which I'm sure my son will grow out of one day but at the moment he is really into and will keep his attention which is fine by me.

                      Lovely short stories which capture little ones imaginations

                      My little one is 2 and absolutely loves peppa pig the first thing I hear in the morning when she wakes up is Peppa pig my peppa pig I've had to resort to bringing them up on You tube when they are not on tv and have even found them in italian which will hopefully assist her in becoming bialingual.
                      Peppa Pig is a little pig the episodes are the adventures of her her little brother George mamma and pappa pig and the grandparents along with various friends and imaginary ones too. The stories capture little ones imaginations and my little one quite often copies peppa if she sees a puddle she jumps in it - peppa pigs favorite activity is jumping in muddy puddles! Today its snowing and we've watched the christmas episode and she points outside then back to the tv saying snow snow snow. They are lovely little stories that actually make sense rather than many characters of childrens programmes on the tv these days that don't even speak in real words.

                      My daughters sentences have picked up since watching this she is definitely talking more albiet about muddy puddles! I great cartoon for pre schoolers
