Peppa Pig Products now available at Toys R Us

A little while ago I received an email asking me if I wanted to check out a new line of Peppa Pig products available at Toys R US.  I had never heard of Peppa Pig, but they looked cute so I thought, why not?

Peppa is a lively, energetic little piggy that lives in the UK with her brother George, Mommy Pig, and Daddy Pig.  She loves playing games, dressing up, going on trips, and jumping in large muddy puddles.  She also lies to snort and laugh, and she has the cutest British accent. 

I looked the show up and saw that Peppa Pig airs on Nick Jr.  But as we don't have that channel I had no idea what I was getting myself into.  After watching one short episode of the Muddy Puddles and other Stories DVD, I knew we had a problem.  Peppa Pig had become a household epidemic.  Bid wanted all Peppa, all the time.

The DVD is a 60 minute compilation featuring 10 short  "Peppasodes."  When Bid is watching the show, she just starts giggling and can't stop.  Kik and Co often stop what they are doing and laugh along.  It's adorable. 

To go along with the DVD, there is also a new assortment of toys available from Fisher-Price, and a book from Candlewick Press.  Since Kik is the only one that can read, the Peppa Pig and the Lost Christmas List book is officially hers.

Co loves to hear Peppa Snort, so the Hug 'N Oink Peppa is a great toy for him to play with during family Peppa time.

When he hugs her she giggles, talks, and snorts.  He thinks its hilarious.  Unfortunately Co is only a year so hugging Peppa doesn't always gets her to go off.  But jumping on her belly usually works :)

There are also a couple of little play sets available for Peppa Pig fans.  The Peek 'n Surprise Playhouse, and the Peppa & Friends Painting Together play set.

The Painting Together Set is super cute.  It comes with Peppa and her friend Danny, and an art easel that flips around to reveal a painting.  Bid loves playing school with the characters.

The Peek N Surprise Playhouse is portable and features four rooms of play space and 18 play pieces.  There is a washing machine that flips to reveal clean clothes, a fridge that opens up to reveal food, a barbecue that flips for different meals, a bathtub that flips to reveal bubbles and Peppa & George figurines.

Bid loves figurines and little play sets, so this is a definite must have for a Peppa Pig lover.

To Buy - My kids are Peppa Pig crazy and really want me to go out and buy them the other DVD that is available right now.  I'm thinking that they'll have to ask Santa for it instead.

The DVD's are available at Toys "R" Us and as digital downloads on ITunes.  It's $14.98 for each DVD, or $9.99 for the download.

  1. Love that big stuffed Peppa Pig. Not to enthusiastic about the Peek N Surprise Playhouse parts though...I think they would get lost so easily with my kids! :)
