You probably already know how much Emmy loves Peppa Pig, you name it and she has it!! Infact she is currently asleep in her Peppa Pig sleepsuit cuddling Peppa Pig, under her Peppa duvet (obsessed?? well of course…the first thing she asks for when waking up is Peppa Pig on TV)
So when we were asked if we would like to review the Peppa Pig Little TV by Inspiration Works I asked Emmy and she said “Now Mummy, mine Peppa. Me love Peppa” so how could I turn it down.
Inside the box are 4 cards which are double sided, the TV and a remote control. It uses 2 x AA batteries and 2 x AG13 batteries.
This TV and remote works like your own TV and remote at home – point and click, the remote must be pointed at or near the TV for it to work (or even kept in its stand) and questions are asked and to respond you press the correct button on the remote control. There are 9 scenes to choose from resulting in nearly 100 questions to answer.
Emmy found this hard and a lot of help was needed before she chose the right button to answer the questions correctly however half of her enjoyment at this age was just pressing every button and seeing what happens. When your child is older and able to listen properly (something Emmy will not do!) then they will enjoy all of the aspects of this TV/toy. There is also a repeat button on the controller so you can hear the question again and a music button which plays different music depending on which card is in at the time. When not in use the cards are stored in the back of the TV.
The TV works by inserting a scene into the top slot and answering the questions by pressing the correct character – the questions include “Who make’s that noise?”, “Who has 3 gift’s?”, and “Who is wearing a blue helmet?” – they are nearly 100 such questions to answer, meaning your child can be kept amused for ages.
Peppa Pig’s TV helps children to learn colours, quantities, numbers and helps with observation techniques and is suitable for children 2 and over. While Emmy enjoys this I would say it is more suited to children over 3 otherwise a lot of parental help is needed.
