Writing Christmas cards

I snapped this quick photo of Big Brother tonight as he was writing his Christmas cards. He wanted to send a card to everyone in his class and I thought it would be a great opportunity for him to practise his letters!

10 years of Muddy Puddles

Both the children adore Peppa Pig so we were really happy to be asked to review a bundle of wonderful Peppa Pig goodies to help celebrate 10 years of Muddy Puddles.

Our favourite was the Peppa Pig 35 Piece Giant Muddy Puddle Floor Jigsaw Puzzle (RRP £9.99). Peppa Pig’s giant muddy puddle floor puzzle is an over- sized 35 piece jigsaw that features Peppa Pig and her friends and family jumping around in the biggest muddy puddle ever! The puzzle is suitable for children aged 3 and above and both my children like this as it’s big enough they can do it together.

Giant Muddy Puddle Floor Jigsaw PuzzlePeppa has golden boots too which Little Sis loves to point out. This puzzle isn’t too difficult but kept them busy for a good 10 minutes.

I put everything on a tray for her and you can just about see she was colouring whilst watching the new Peppa Pig 10 Years of Muddle Puddles DVD (RRP £7.99).

The Muddy Puddles compilation DVD celebrates 10 years of everyone’s favourite pig with a selection of the most popular Peppa Pig Muddy Puddle episodes as voted for by the British public! All your favourite muddy puddle episodes in one collection! As you can imagine we have watched this most days.

The children have recently discovered family games so were pretty happy to find Peppa Pig Hide & Seek Games (£12.99). The Peppa Pig Interactive Hide & Seek Game is great for even the youngest of Peppa fans. This fantastic interactive game is great for playing inside the house with 1 – 4 players of varying ages – meaning that every fan of Peppa Pig can enjoy it.

Peppa Pig Hide & Seek GamesThe game needs batteries and basically you choose a couple of cards, hide the Peppa figure in one of those places whilst someone looks for her. Peppa calls out until you find her. My children love this and play it every day. It’s quite a well-thought out game as there are a couple of ways to play according to age.

Little Sis also loved the Peppa Pig Pink Puddle Apron (£4.99). It features Peppa and Suzy and although recommended for ages 3-4 I think Little Sis will be growing into it for a while! It definitely does a good job of keeping her clean whilst crafting.

Peppa Pig Pink Puddle ApronI have shared most of the products on Instagram or Twitter but a couple of other products include The Biggest Muddy Puddle in the World Book, I think you can guess what happens from the title!, and a beautiful Peppa Pig by Portmeirion Ceramic Range.

The eye catching design features leading characters, five-year old Peppa and her younger brother George, set in a series of colourful designs that depict the pair having plenty of fun in muddy puddles. The 5 piece collection, which is certain to brighten up meal times, includes a 3-piece set (plate, bowl & mug), 2-piece set (mug & bowl), egg cup and snack plate, mug & snack plate, and single mug.

I have put this away until Little Sis is a little old but it’s a lovely set and would make a great gift for Christmas, birthdays or a Christening.

I hope you have enjoyed my little Peppa Pig round up. The products are all available from all good toy shops or online from Amazon, Toys R Us, Tesco, Dunelm, Waterstones, Argos and WHSmiths.
