I was so excited when I found out that we were going to receive a Peppa Pig Summer Bundle to enjoy during the summer holidays. You may have seen the nice, bright cute badge that we have on our sidebar which means that we were chosen to be Peppa Pig Summer Bloggers! My youngest daughter is obsessed with Peppa Pig. She watches episodes all the time and pretty much has a routine of watching a couple of episodes before she goes to bed. Peppa has become her bedtime story every night and it works wonders as she falls asleep straight away in a peaceful way, so it is great for me of course, LOL!
If you follow me on social media you have probably seen some of my photos about this summer bundle. I have shared photos of a few of the products already and will be sharing more this week.
When we received the bundle we were all surprised to see that it contained so many great products! It was amazing just to see my youngest’s face so full of happiness – it was just priceless. Her eyes and mouth were wide open as she was so amazed at it. Even my eldest daughter who is now 6 was super excited about the bundle. This tells you that Peppa Pig is popular across a wide age group.
We received lots of products to review such as a Peppa Pig Campervan Shape Sorter, Peppa Goes Around the World Books, Peppa Single Nautical Duvet Set, Peppa Party Race Games, Remote Control Inflatable Peppa, Peppa Reversible Travel Pillow and Inflatable Muddy puddle.
You can see below some of the products we received:
1. Peppa Campervan Shape Sorter – RRP £15, from Milly & Flynn
This wooden campervan has four shaped holes and eight coloured wooden blocks. It is a a fun way to encourage hand-eye coordination, shape and colour recognition.
Sienna loves this shape sorter. She has been playing with it during the whole summer. It is a perfect toy to keep them entertained for a while. I thought that she would perhaps play with it just a couple of times but my goodness, she played with it a lot! I’m now giving her this toy to play with every time she seems bored or fed up with the same toys. She still gets very excited about it! It is very cute to watch.
I love the colour. The bright yellow is great and the design is very cute. It looks very well made. I was very impressed with this toy. We love wooden toys so this was a pleasant surprise to have. Sienna is now very good at it and knows exactly where the blocks go and how to get them back out of the campervan so she can play again and again!
2. Peppa Goes Around the World Books – RRP £6.99, from Penguin
This is a lovely book. Given my daughters really are Peppa Pig fans, we of course have lots of Peppa Pig books, so having another book to add to our growing collection was great. This book of course is now on our main bookshelf with all the summer books but I can see it staying there as a favourite throughout the year!
In this story, Peppa visits friends located across the globe in her very own aeroplane. With journeys to the South Pole, snowy mountain tops, the jungle and the desert, this is a colourful and action-packed Peppa adventure.
The book has really lovely illustrations. They are very big and bright so it definitely caught Sienna’s attention. She was very interested to see all the illustrations and also she was very keen to be read the book. Now that Bella can read, it was nice to see how she tried to read the book to Sienna. It was a cute moment.
At the moment this book is always around and it is indeed one of her favourites!
OMG this duvet is so cute! I never thought I would put a Peppa Pig duvet in the girls bedroom as I would normally go for something more classic instead of having a kids TV character set, but when I changed the duvet and had the bed done I was very happy with how it looked!
Sienna already saw the package but I don’t think she understood very well what it was. When she saw the photo on the packaging she immediately said “Peppa Pig” with a big smile so I had great hopes that she would like it in her bedroom too.
As soon as it was ready I called her and when she saw it she was over the moon. She really loved it! She was all over the bed pointing at Peppa, smiling and even talking to her. It was hilarious! Then when Bella saw it, she also thought it looked great so I was very pleased to have two happy, smiling daughters! 😉
This duvet cover is really cool and it is also reversible which is always very practical. The front of the duvet cover features Peppa and George sailing on a pretty blue and white polka dot background, whilst the polka dot pattern is continued on the reverse. This item is made from a polycotton blend and can be machine washed and tumble dried on a cool setting.
We finally managed to play this game during the bankholiday weekend. We got daddy involved too so the girls were very excited about it. The game is recommended for children aged 4 and above, and suitable for 2 – 4 players. Therefore, this game is not appropriate for children under the age of 3. We knew then that it was going to be difficult to play with Sienna but we wanted to get her involved so we did all play but she was under my supervision.
Sienna was very interested at the beginning but as expected she lost interest half way through. On the other hand, we had Bella that was completely involved during the whole game and it was really fun to be able to play it with her. The only thing was that she really really wanted to win and nobody else would dare to not let her, LOL!
The game is about Suzy Sheep’s Birthday and Peppa Pig and her family are on their way to join the party. But who will be the first to arrive to the party? You can only join the party if you have the Invitation Card. All through the game we were clapping and getting excited every time someone got the invitation and of course trying not to lose it, LOL!
To start the game, players need to roll the dice and move around the game board, trying to avoid the ‘hazard’ spaces that will delay your journey as you may have to miss a turn, slide down going back a few spots. You can land on a number of different picture squares – the Invitation Card, the Duck, Mr Dinosaur, a Tyre, a Petrol Pump, a Mobile Phone or an upside down Map. All of them meant something and you will need to follow the instructions from their manual. These hazards are what make the game more interesting and fun!
The game board measures 52 x 34cm (approximately) and has been produced using a high-quality material to ensure that the board and pieces maintain, for playing time and time again. Playing board games are a great way to help children develop their number and shape recognition, counting and hand-eye coordination from a young age while having fun.
This board game contains: 1 x Game Board, 4 x Peppa Pig Playing Pieces with Plastic Base, 1 x Invitation Card, 1 x Dice, 1 x Rules of the Game
We really had a great time. The best part was to spend some time together even though Sienna didn’t have a clue of what was going on, or that Bella just wanted to win win win, or that daddy was wondering why he didn’t get the invitation card at the end or me just thinking how can I be just almost winning but then sent back miles away from the finish line! All of this is part of the spirit of playing a game with your family.
At the end guess who won? Yes, you are absolutely right, our lovely Bella was the winner of this lovely board game! She was so thrilled about it! This morning Bella was asking me if she could play the game on her own, so I said yes and she, of course, was delighted as she played as all 4 players and so was the winner for a second time, haha!
