Peppa Pig jumps in muddy puddles.
I just wish she’d do it quietly.
This is supposed to be a review. Reviews are supposed to be glowingly positive right? One of the reasons I have a backlog of them (there are many involved reasons why I have a backlog of them, not least because I have four children, an inability to say no to anything that any of them might like, and a complete lack of anything resembling time management skills) is because I hate to say negative things in a review.
I’m not going to let that hold me back any longer. You’re going to get the complete, unvarnished truth, and I’m going to get this backlog of posts out of my drafts folder and off my conscience. And if PRs stop sending me stuff, so be it. (Just don’t tell the children it’s my fault, OK?)
Anyway, Peppa Pig.
I’m not a Peppa Pig fan. I’m not sure that many adults are. Is there much to be a fan of? They are anthropomorphized pigs. Who wear clothes, and jump in puddles while snorting.
However, I’m not a three year old. My three year old loves Peppa Pig. She’s fascinated by the jumping. (A pig! It jumps! It talks!) And the talking. I’m actually quite impressed by how well engineered the toy is – it does actually jump. Although we haven’t tried it in any muddle puddles as it would seem rather a shame to get water in the batteries. And it talks quite clearly (and loudly) while jumping. A variety of phrases, including counting. This is good, we can call it educational too.
So, the summary.
Votes from the three year old – 9 out of 10. The baby likes it too, but he doesn’t get a vote yet.
Votes from the mother – 6 out of 10. Well engineered, doesn’t make noise unless interacted with, does make a lot of noise when triggered.
An ideal present for a small relative with parents you aren’t fond of. (No, I didn’t really say that out loud. Did I?)
