My son loves Peppa Pig, the adorable cartoon originally created in the UK. Last year, the award-winning, animated series for pre-k kids jumped across the pond, much to the to delight of U.S. kids. Your children can tune in on Nick Jr.

The main character is a pig named Peppa, who likes to get into all sorts of things. The show follows the daily routines of Peppa, her brother George, as well as Mommy Pig and Daddy Pig. The episodes tend to feature everyday, relater activities like attending playgroup and being with friends, going to the playground, swimming, visiting with grandparents, playing in mud puddles and doing all sorts of fun stuff.

Little Man was super excited when his Peppa Pig toys got here- he asked me if we could “call England to say thank you”, LOL. They arrived just moments before we were on our way out the door for a weekend trip to CT, so guess who came with us? You got that right….Peppa Pig, in stuffed version, is really cute. She is soft and fuzzy, and snorts! (Don’t worry- she has an on/off button for sleep time, no waking up to pig noises!)
We love the “Muddy Puddles” DVD. It has tons of Peppa-sodes, ready to keep your little fan entertained on rainy or sicky days. My son also loved the Peppa Pig Christmas book, which also had coloring pages on the back of the color. Sweet for the car ride! A double-occupier.
The Peek n’ Surprise Playhouse was another hit- it is played with everyday. It came with 2 piggies, and you can get extra characters to go with it as well. It opens up into a house, but everything (furniture, characters, etc) fits neatly inside and folds shut for easy on-the-go carrying. Yes, it even has a handle 🙂

Peppa and family deal with everyday life issues with a smile and laugh. Peppa’s lighthearted approach to storytelling makes it easy to watch for both children and parents. I think that the simple and silly animation will especially appeal to preschoolers, even more so because the episodes are activities geared toward the preschool age range (issues and “problems” Peppa faces). The snorting alone will make your little one laugh, and there is plenty of teasing- just like at home.
Peppa Pig is a suitable and fun show for preschoolers with social lessons about kindness, loyalty, values of family, friendship, and fun, that run within each episode- without it being too obvious and sunshiny that your child won’t like it.
Find Peppa Pig on your local Nick Jr television station, and online for games and activities. You can also pick up Peppa Pig DVD’s and other merchandise at Toys R US .
