I'm a Peppa Pig Parent!

Due to recent illness we had to miss the Peppa Pig Live show in Providence, RI.  The girls were so upset about this as they are huge Peppa Pig fans and were so looking forward to this live show.  But, I told them that we would get tickets for the show next year when it stops by the Hanover Theatre in Worcester, MA.  They were happy to hear this, but were still sad about missing the show.  Thankfully I was able to cheer them up with a box of Peppa Pig goodies, fit for a princess, I was sent.  This box of goodies couldn't have come at a better time, and really did make the girls smile after a week on the couch with pneumonia and asthma issues.

Included in our box of Peppa Pig goodies were the following princess-themed items, that would make any Peppa Pig fan smile and oink with glee :-) :

About this castle play set:

"Once upon a time, in a castle, there lived a little princess named Peppa. She was very pretty and loved looking at herself in the mirror. She also loved hosting royal tea parties with her best friend, Princess Suzy. When she was worn out from tea parties and looking at herself in the mirror, she would go to sleep in her princess bed of pink and gold. Join Princess Peppa and her friends in a fairy tale adventure! "

    My girls couldn't believe all the princess themed Peppa Pig stuff they were sent.  They said it felt like Christmas came early.  And, my youngest thought that Peppa Pig heard they were sick and wanted to cheer them up, so sent them all these goodies to play with and help them get better.  I told she was probably right and that Peppa noticed them missing in the audience at the show that night, and sent along the box of stuff to cheer them up. :-)

    The first thing the girls did was play with the Peppa Pig Pop-Up book.  They thought this was the coolest thing ever.  

    They couldn't wait to set it up at the dining room table and spent over 2 hours sitting their playing with the castle, that is made up of different rooms, each having doors, windows, etc. that can be opened.  While this pop-up play set come with press-out figures to use with the set, my girls opted after a short time of play with their mini plastic Peppa Pig figures.  They were light enough to sit on the different floors of the play set, and offered a fun 3-D dimension to the scenes.  

    "All hail Princess Peppa! There’s so much to do at Peppa’s royal residence. Children are invited to explore the castle’s many majestic rooms with press-out figures of Princess Peppa, Prince George, and their family and friends. After entering through the working gate, they’ll want to peek into Peppa’s closet and read the mini storybook telling all about Peppa’s day at the castle. It’s a Peppa fairy tale come true!

    Peppa fans will be royally pleased to discover this pop-up play set with press-out characters — presided over by Princess Peppa, of course!"


    My girls loved playing with the new Peppa Pig's Pop-Up Princess Castle, which also includes a mini storybook that tells about Peppa's day at the castle.  Savannah read the story, while Bella used the press-out figures and their own Peppa Pig figures to bring the story to life in a fun and playful ways. 

    Since receiving this cute pop-up castle book featuring everyone's favorite pig, Peppa Pig yesterday, it has become a favorite of my girls.  They played all afternoon on and on with it yesterday and woke looking for it this AM.  I love how they can sit at the table and play with it, or bring it to the couch and set it up. It is mobile enough young Peppa Pig fans can bring it on-the-go and keep themselves occupied.  

    Peppa Pig's Pop-Up Princess Castle would make for a great gift idea for that special Peppa Pig fan in your life.  Pair it with a few other Peppa Pig books, DVDs, toy figures or even a new pair of pajamas and it makes for a truly memorable Peppa Pig gift kids will enjoy for years to come. :-)


    When they were done playing with this pop-up castle book, it was time to take their medicine and rest on the couch.  This was the perfect time to snuggle up with them and read the two Peppa Pig books were set -- "Princess Peppa and the Royal Ball," which is a great level 1 reader book for beginner readers and included stickers,  and "Princess Peppa," which included a pop out princess crown inside.

    The girls really enjoyed the "Princess Peppa and the Royal Ball" book, which is about Peppa and her family hosting a royal ball at their castle.  If you watch this popular animated series, then you  know Peppa doesn't live in a castle.  But, in this book, the story is told as a fairy tale and she lives in a castle and goes into the village to invite all her friends to the royal ball.  The story has a happily ever after, and is full of colorful illustrations that make the story come to life.  This is one book I know my girls will pull from the shelf and read on their own, as they relive the magical royal ball put on by everyone's favorite pig, Peppa Pig.

    In the "Princess Peppa" book, we get to listen in as Mummy Pig tells Peppa and George a bedtime story fit for a royal princess and prince.  In her magical story, Peppa is a princess and George is a brave knight and they also host a party for their friends at the castle.  This book is filled with scrumptious desserts, a visit from a wizard and even a green dragon.  What happens when they two stop by the palace?  You will just have to pick up this book to read to your child and find out for yourself.  I will say it was another enjoy fairy tale featuring Peppa Pig, that we have been enjoying the past few nights at bedtime.

    If these books and the pop-up castle weren't enough to keep the girls entertained while they were laid up, the Princess Peppa DVD and the castle playset were also a great way to pass the time. :-)  

    The DVD, which is made up of 12 princess/fairy-tale themed episodes was a hit with the girls.  Even though they have already seen the episodes, they loved how they were combined on this limited edition box set with bonus Peppa Pig princess plush.  Even though the girls took turns playing with the plush, I know I will be buying another one of these DVD/plush sets so they have their own princess Peppa to snuggle with at bedtime.  The plush toy is so cute and cuddly, I couldn't help but give it a squeeze when the girls weren't looking.

    Next to the pop-up castle book, the girls said that the castle play set was their second favorite thing from the goodies sent.  They loved how it was portable and could be carried around or stored away easily.  And, the addition of the two figures -- Peppa and her friend Suzy Sheep make this a great toy to play with right out of the box.  Even though the girls have other Peppa and friends figures and we were sent another set of figures to play with in the box, they were content to using the two figures that came with this playset.  

    I loved watching the girls make up their stories, or reenact ones from the books we read or that they saw on the DVD.  We have had these Peppa Pig princess goodies for a few days now, and the girls continue to play with each and every item we were sent.  I love that they can use the castle play set at the table or bring and set up on the couch.  It is just the right size and will provide hours of fun for any Peppa Pig fan.

    I could go on and on about how great each of the Peppa Pig products we were sent are, but you already know this about the Peppa Pig merchandise line, if you have a Peppa Pig fan.  The toys are always well made and each and every Peppa Pig product, is engaging and provides hours of fun and imaginary playtime for fans of this popular animated series.  My girls can't wait until they are better and can have their friends over to play with the castle playset and pop-up castle book.  And, I know that once their friends see the Peppa Pig goodies my girls were sent, they will be adding them to their holiday wish lists, too.

    So, if you have a Peppa Pig fan in your life, and they are asking for Peppa Pig toys for Christmas, why not pick up a few or all of the items I mentioned above.  They were a hit with my girls, and I know your kids will love these books, DVD with plush set, and castle play set.
