Peppa Pig Grandpa Pig's Boat Construction Set Review

Like most two year olds the Twinkies absolutely love Peppa Pig and building blocks so combining these two things looked like it would be a winner for sure. We were sent the Grandpa Pig's Boat Construction Set to test whether this theory would hold true and there was no surprise it was a hit from the minute they set eyes on the box.

What's in the Box

Peppa Pig Grandpa Pig's construction set contains large bright colourful blocks, similar to lego duplo, which are easy for little hands to click together and build with. 

Like all construction and building toys this makes them excellent for developing hand eye co-ordination and encouraging dexterity and coordination along with creative and imaginative play. The set also comes with stickers and a articulated Grandpa Pig figure.

Our Verdict

There was no hiding the sheer excitement when my two saw the box, they really do adore Peppa Pig. Their big brother Ben, who is 6, gave them a hand with the instructions on how to build the boat and together all three of them built it pretty quickly. The fact that the boat has moving wheels is great as it  adds to it playability, making it more than just a model but something that can be pushed and zoomed about so it definitely is true to say it is a "build and play" toy.

Similarly the articulated Grandpa Pig character is fantastic as he can be played with independently of the construction set and even brought on outings like Zachary insists we do with ours, in fact he is quickly becoming a regular on the school run. The stickers are a nice touch and really appeals to the age group the set is intended for if my kids love of stickers is anything to go by.

I would definitely recommend the Peppa Pig Construction toys, they are made of quality materials, there are nice additional touches such as the stickers and the much loved Peppa Pig characters are always going to be a hit with little fans.

Where to buy
