Peppa Pig has both a LOT to answer for and be thanked for, doesn’t she?
She is quite a popular discussion topic over on my facebook page with many parents accrediting her with a free half hour to have a shower, feed the baby, have a morning coffee in peace and quiet, prepare dinner in the witching hour or just generally enjoy a bit of down time whilst she casts her spell over the kidlets. As annoying as her bossy mannerisms may be and her very non PC way of labelling Daddy Pig in a more than rotund manner, what IS it about a precocious pink pig with an extremely suspicious looking nose that captivates the kids so much and has parents rejoicing around the world?
Just LOOK what Peppa has done to my boys!
Mr Point Five and I offered to take them to the park down the road where we used to live, where there is a massive sandpit, two slides, a fort, monkey bars, and basically the whole kit and caboodle.
You know what they wanted to do?
Yep – put on the wellies and go and Splash in Muddy Puddles – “like Peppa Mummy”.
Sigh.
Made for some great Kodak moments though, and as you know, I am ALL about those :)
On the eee-pad, Master J’s favourite game is “Find Polly” where you go from room to room in Peppas house to find an irritating parrot with an even more irritating squawk.  He LOVES it! Go figure. Maybe it appeals to the Hide and Seek game he adores with his brother – he uses his nouse and logic until he finds  that bloody parrot!  Its the Peppa magic – who knows?
Peppa has been extremely frustrating for the same five year old in that she can whistle. He is determined to whistle “like Peppa Mummy”. I’m not laughing but she is still one up on him, despite his best perseverance.
My poor G Man has been one-upped by a Pink Pig with a suspicious snout :)
Both Boys have mastered the Dinosaur “Raawww” complete with Dino-actions. They terrorise each other around the house for hours on end with it, and its pretty basic, seriously.
Boys.
One of G Mans favourite games in the school playground is to play the Dinosaur Game for which I am fairly sure the other kids have George Pig to blame. Sorry about that.
Poor Mr Point Five – I am fairly certain one of the main reasons he went on his diet six months ago was because of the episode where Granny and Grandpa Pig build Peppa and George a cubby house and they decide on their secret entry password – you KNOW what it was, don’t you?
THEN they turned to me and said, see Mummy, just like OUR Daddy!!?!!
Poor Daddy Pig, ooops I mean Daddy.
 Our dinner at home is even timed around her so I can get it cooked in peace at 5pm!
God help ABC 4 Kids if they mess with that schedule :)
***********
…..the word from the guys over at Peppa Pig:
Peppa Pig is loved by parents and kids for her mischievous sense of humour and the life lessons explored in a fun way? Check out the Peppa Pig website and Peppa’s Official Facebook page for printables, event updates and products available in time for Christmas.
(For the record, the games on the website are pretty cool if you don’t have an eee-pad or an i-thingy – I’m a bit nervous to show my two or I will never get my computer back to blog again! And the facebook page look great for some last minute stocking filler ideas!)

AND – Did you know that Peppa Pig is also a massive supporter of the Australian charity,
