Peppa Pig - Bubbles (DVD)
Advantages: Funny, entertaining
If you've got small children I'm sure you'll know all about Peppa Pig! Well this cheeky little pig is taking over our house! Both of my children absolutely love this programme and so we are often found watching the DVD. This is just one of the many DVDs in our collection.
Who is Peppa?
Peppa Pig is a television programme which is aired every day on Channel 5 but also on Nikelodian too. It seems that you can't go a day without being able to watch it! The programme is about a little pig called Peppa who lives with Daddy Pig, Mummy pig and her little brother George. The episodes tell of every day events that they experience together so this may be something as simple as going to nursery or visiting their grandparents. The stories are only short about 5 minutes each but they tend to have a moral to them such as being kind to friends or listening to your parents and the stories are told in a way which has elements of humour in which adults can understand and children may not so this makes it really watchable by parents too which makes a nice change! Since Peppa Pig has been aired there are lots of different things you can buy from their range including bed covers, teddies, toys, books, clothing and of course DVDs. We have so many things in our collection I have lost count!
Peppa Pig Bubbles
I bought this DVD from Debenhams about a year ago and it cost me just £3 at the time. It is available at the moment on Amazon for £4.64. Peppa Pig DVDs do tend to be around this mark and I think that's a reasonable price to pay. On this DVD there are 12 episodes and these include:
02. Teddy's Day Out.
03. Emily Elephant.
04. Polly's Holiday.
05. George's Friend.
07. Rock Pools.
08. Windy Autumn Day.
09. The Time Capsule.
10. Mr Scarecrow.
11. The Boat Pond.
What is great about these episodes is that they are talking about every day events yet they are really enjoyable to watch and I really like how they are so ordinary really that children can relate to them. There are lots of television programmes out at the moment which are really extreme where children are taken to fantasy worlds and really bizarre situations but these episodes are far more ordinary. I know that obviously these animals are not humans so that is not ordinary but it makes them more appealing to children and it's the actual stories and life events which are easy for children to relate to.
Another thing I like about this is that they are not full of action with crazy effects and lots of noise. Sometimes I think children are over stimulated but they are not with this DVD it just tells a story without throwing in lots of detailing.
On one of the episodes Peppa makes a time capsule and Hope was asking me about it, I explained what the purpose of one is and she was really interested. It's great that she is learning through watching this although of course I know this is no substitute for school but it's nice to know that her mind is being opened to new ideas which are real rather than the extreme ones you may get from other television shows.
One thing I have noticed with this DVD is that Peppa's voice seems to be different so it must be a different child playing her. Hope hasn't noticed this and it doesn't take away from the enjoyment of watching it at all but if you are one for detail it may stick out a lot to you.
This DVD is played a lot in our house! Hope and her little brother are always running around with it and asking for it to be played, they just don't seem to grow bored by it at all. I must admit that it is quite enjoyable to watch, I like the subtle humour in it which is good for adults to pick up on. So many of my friends say they enjoy watching it and when my parents have been round and it's been on I've even heard them have a little chuckle at some of the things that have been said.
Some people say Peppa teaches bad manners as sometimes she is cheeky and a little naughty but I think it's refreshing to have realistic behaviour on the television and it's never anything really severe and Hope's behaviour hasn't been hindered by watching this at all.
I think it's a great DVD and the children love it. It is well worth £3 that we paid for it. It was originally released in 2007 yet it's still going strong, I think Peppa will be a household name for a long time coming!
Summary: a fun dvd
