Peppa Pig is a British animated television series revolving around the loveable and energetic Peppa Pig and her brother, mother, father and various animal friends and their everyday activities in the U.K. While the animals all bear many human resemblances they hold on to their individual animal traits. The Pigs snort, the Rabbits live in a burrow and love carrots, etc. Peppa speaks in a British accents and loves playing games, dressing up, going on trips and jumping in muddy puddles. The show currently airs on Nick Jr.
Fisher Price has just released a series of Peppa Pig toys and books available at Toys “R” Us. While it was supposed to be a Christmas surprise my daughter discovered the toys and can not wait to play them. Some of the featured toys include:
- Sip ‘n Oink Tea Set. This one is so cute. The pot is shaped lied† Peppa’s house. When you lift the cup their is a little piggy snout on the bottom so your little one can look just like Peppa when she sips.
