At UKMums.TV we’re taking time out to play, with the Character Pre-School Week. As part of this takeover, we’re spotlighting some of Character Options’ best pre-school toy collections.
From Fireman Sam to Ben & Holly’s Little Kingdom, Character Options has brought to life some of the most beloved pre-school shows, in the shape of toys. But it’s Peppa Pig that remains one of their biggest and most popular pre-school ranges.
Peppa Pig is full of fun and cute characters, and it also has an educational element. It’s for all these reasons, among others, that the show translates so well to toys.
Watch children play with a Peppa Pig toy and they’ll start re-enacting storylines they’ve seen on TV. But, soon enough, you’ll also see that these toys can also act as a springboard for children’s imaginations, as they begin to create stories of their own! So, if you’re looking to add a new toy to the toy box, rest assured that Peppa Pig is always a great option!
But don’t just take our word for it, check out this lovely review from Life with the Busbys for the Peppa Pig Wooden Toy range: http://lifewiththebusbys.com/peppa-pig-wooden-toys-review
