THE PLOT THUS FAR
In the title episode, “My Birthday Party”, it’s Peppa’s birthday and all of her friends are invited to her party where Daddy Pig gets lots of laughs with his attempt at performing a magic show. Other episodes include an exciting boat race, a school play, a train adventure, a day at the beach, a costume party and more! Airing daily on Nick Jr., Peppa Pig follows the hilarious adventures of Peppa, a loveable little piggy, her family, and all of her animal friends, including Suzy Sheep, Pedro Pony, Danny Dog and more. Peppa loves playing games, dressing up, visiting exciting places and making new friends, but her absolute favorite thing is jumping up and down in muddy puddles! Peppa’s adventures are filled with wholesome entertainment the entire family can enjoy and always end happily with loud snorts of laughter. Recommended for kids 2-6, the episodes feature themes that kids can relate to and reinforce strong values such as family, friendship, trust and humor.
WHAT WE THOUGHT
“Peppa Pig: My Birthday Party” has a lot of sensory entertainment. It also has pigs and other animals. I wish I could say more, the show presents itself pretty well with the box art. If you’re still of the age where you shit your diapers, that’s all you need. The adults in the room will be bored silly.
The Peppa Pig stuff is cute, but I don’t see anything that differentiates it from the onslaught of other kiddie stuff. It plays young enough that my daughter could enjoy it. But, what’s to keep her from just watching it on demand? The lack of motor skills? Please…she can find the DirecTV channel for Nick Jr.
The DVD comes with no special features. But, that’s typical for this kind of release. The A/V Quality is on par with a standard definition broadcast. If anything, it looks as good as it’s going to get. In the end, I’d recommend a purchase to parents of young kids.
