Which ‘Peppa Pig’ house toys are best?
Jumping up and down in muddy puddles is even more fun when you’re pretending to do it in front of a “Peppa Pig” house toy. Peppa, the lovable pig from Nick Jr.’s hit show of the same name, lives with her family, Daddy Pig, Mommy Pig and her little brother George, in a cute house that is immediately recognizable to fans everywhere. If you are looking for a “Peppa Pig” house toy that is fun and exciting to play with, the Peppa Pig Family Home is the top choice.
What to know before you buy a ‘Peppa Pig’ house toy
Some Peppa Pig house toys are much larger than others. There are two- and three-story houses, with four and six rooms, respectively. The tallest version of the house stands at almost 2 feet tall. Depending on the amount of space you have for Peppa’s house, you may want to choose a smaller or larger model.
Because “Peppa Pig” is a show for preschoolers, most “Peppa Pig” toys are designed to be appropriate for children of that age. If the house comes with furniture or characters, be sure that they do not pose a choking hazard for little ones.
Version of the house
There are several different versions of Peppa’s house from which to choose. In the cartoon, the house is two stories. You can buy a replica of that house, which often folds in half for easy carrying. There is also a three-story model of the house that is not true to the show but has a lot of rooms in which to play. You can also purchase toys of other places in which Peppa has lived like her campervan and the Princess Castle of her imagination.
