Hey everyone! We’ve got a toy review for you today. We have two little girls who are obsessed with Peppa Pig, they regularly sing the bing bong song over and over and also love jumping in muddy puddles wearing their boots. (Or “muddle duddles” in Zayahs words). When the opportunity to review this toy came around from Trends Toys/Wire PR I obviously jumped at the chance. They were very happy to receive it, thank you again!
Count with Peppa is for little ones aged 2+ and both of our girls have taken a liking to it. Zayah turned 2 in September and Zara is 4 years old. Zayah didn’t even need prompting or to be shown how to use the toy and instantly knew that the coins needed to be posted into the slot on “Bebba Big”.
She also figured out pretty quickly that she could open the door to get the coins out and put them back in again. Peppa comes with ten large/chunky coins that are numbered and also have different illustrations on them.
Count with Peppa has two different modes, colours and numbers. There’s a little switch on the side with N and C which you can choose between. There is also a volume switch at the back of the toy with two different volume levels to choose from.
I really like how educational this toy is as well as being a lot of fun to play with. This is great for toddlers and children to practise their numbers and and colours. The toy also plays 3 songs which the girls (and I) remembered from the TV series.
In number mode Peppa will ask you for a certain number of coins, just one coin with a certain number on it and a coin with a specific picture on it.
In colours mode, Peppa will ask you for a coin in a certain colour or a coin with certain coloured objects on it. If you get the questions right she gives words of encouragement and if you get the answers wrong she will ask another question. Zayah’s not long turned two years old and knows a few colours but not all and can count to 15 but can’t yet recognise number. This toy is great for encouraging your little ones to recognise numbers from 1-10.
Overall I’m really impressed with Count with Peppa. The girls have enjoyed playing with it and have actually fought over it. It’s great for developing skills, learning colours and numbers. I think it would make a great Christmas or birthday gift for little boys and girls. It retails from around £16.99 and you can purchase Count With Peppa from quite a few stores and online including Argos, John Lewis, Smyths Toys, Amazon and The Entertainer.
