Peppa Pig Interactive Play Mat | A Review

Thursday, 26 October 2017
We have many a different children's television programmes on in our house, at work they often talk about what they have watched and try and interact in conversation with me that way, but in all honesty I don't watch anything. The last programme I watched was Dr. Foster and half the time that was on catch-up. One of the many programmes that gets played regularly though is Peppa Pig. Recently we were offered the opportunity to review a Peppa Pig Interactive Play Mat, and its something I knew both the children would enjoy, although Jack probably won't admit to that. 

The mat is a really decent size measuring around 90cm squared which is a good size for a pre-schooler, however it can be folded away for easy storage afterwards thankfully.

Many of your children's favourite characters are featured on the mat which is fun for them to pick out their favourite characters. The mat features many bright and colourful images to keep interaction and make it eye catching throughout. As well as featuring a path to take you around the mat and different areas many with a number 1-5 within a muddy puddle. 

The interactive mat is specifically designed to encourage children to be active whilst learning different things and of course having fun at the same time. Which is always something I try to look for within a toy. There are four different modes which can be played which are situated along the bottom of the mat - 123 numbers, Peppa says, Sing along and Where is? However, in addition to these you can also extend the learning and create your own games. We did find the character and colours too. 

123 Numbers encourages your children to locate and touch certain numbers which Peppa calls out. The mode is great to encourage recognition of sounds with symbols and developing the skills. Isla can't count yet but has a good try and also is excited when she gets it right. 
Peppa says this mode helps develop listening skills, Peppa will say where to look for then you listen to what the characters have to say. 
Sing along was one of the favourite modes for both Jack and Isla, it plays a sequence of songs include the ever favourite 'Bing Bong Song'. 
Where is? is the final mode and its a great one to play. This is kind of like 'Eye Spy' which my two love. Peppa will ask you to find either one of her friends or a coloured puddle, perfect for encouraging many skills for a childs early development. 

This is aimed at children 3+ so Isla is technically to young for it, but she still had lots of fun at 2.5 years with it and although couldn't do all the activities she had a good try and its something to learn and develop with. Its priced around £19.99 and available from all good toy retailers. 

Please Note: We received this toy in exchange for an honest and impartial review. All words and opinions are my own and not influenced in any way.
