Are you little ones fans of Peppa Pig? Both of my girls have been watching Peppa and her little brother, George, since they were little. After stumbling across a YouTube video of this show, we have been collecting books, DVDs and toys to add to our growing Peppa Pig collection. You can only imagine how excited my girls were they saw me taking this recent DVD release out of the mail. In addition to receiving the DVD to review, I had also pre-ordered the limited edition gift set, which includes a cute Peppa Pig Ty Plush to surprise the girls with.
I have lost count of how many Peppa Pig plush toys we have, but I do know we don't have this cute little one, which has Peppa sporting her yellow boots for jumping in muddy puddles, as well as splattered mud on her boots and outfit. Really cute, and a must have for any Peppa Pig fan.
With two girls who don't like to share, I had to quickly order a second one to keep the peace. :-) Now, we have two plush Peppa dolls and three DVDs, allowing us to enjoy Peppa Pig at home and on the go, as well as one to send to the grandparents house. And, each night at bedtime the girls cuddle up to their new bedtime pal. :-)
Like I said, in addition to the Peppa Pig: Muddy Puddles limited edition gift set (SRP: $39.99), which would be perfect for an Easter basket gift, you can also pickup the DVD without the plush toy for only $14.98 (available in stores and through many online retailers).
This new DVD includes the following full-length episodes...
· “Muddy Puddles”
· “Mr. Dinosaur is Lost”
· “Polly Parrot”
· “Best Friend”
· “Hide and Seek”
· “The Playgroup”
· “Mummy Pig at Work”
While these episodes have already aired on television and your kids, like mine, have probably already watched them half a dozen times or more, you will find that they will watch this DVD as it it was new to them -- my girls acting this way, all while reciting lines that they remembered and snorting like Peppa and her family. I wish I was able to capture Bella pretending to be like Peppa, as she will drop to the floor and roll around while snorting like a pig. Then, she lets out a big belly giggle before getting to her feet. It is so cute...but, everytime I would pull the camera out, she would get camera shy. :-(
I tried asking my girls which of the 10 episodes on this DVD were their favorites. Both were quick to say all of them. I did notice, however, that they really got into the "Mr. Dinosaur is Lost" episode in which Peppa's little brother, George lost his favorite stuffed dinosaur and enlisted the help of his family to help him remember where it was. He eventually found it up in a tree, after everyone searched high and low for it.
This animated series, which airs daily on Nick Jr. continues to gain a following of viewers of all ages. The show is not only fun to watch, but teaches children about friendship and life lessons, including kindness, helping others, working together and more. My 8 year old niece is also a fan of this show and like my girls could recite many of the lines from the episodes on this DVD, or at least tell me what each was about, as they started to play. :-)
Many of these episodes are perfect for spring as the snow is finally melting, which means muddy puddles galore outside. Also trips to the park, gardening and even camping are to follow, once we can see the green grass. So, why not join me and welcome spring by picking up this new DVD release featuring everyone's favorite talking pig, Peppa Pig today. Your kids will love watching all the episodes, as they laugh and snort along. :-)
