Of all the toys that Toys R Us sent for review none has got us in a spin quite as much as the Peppa Pig Fairground Ride Game …but then that’s the whole point of the game!
The toy is very easy to put together. It consists of a fairground ride that spins rapidly when the large red button on top is pushed. The swings on the ride elevate outwards thanks to gravity and the pigs (supplied with the toy) go for a very dizzying ride! Wheee!
The game element is quite basic and seems like something that was contrived to fit the toy. Nonetheless it is enjoyable with an appropriately old enough child. Elwood wasn’t old enough (at 16 months) to understand the game part, but he did take a keen interest when the top started spinning.
He also enjoyed playing with the Peppa Pigs. However it would be a far superior toy if the other characters from the show were used instead of Peppa four times over.
That said, these are quite minor quibbles in a game that is, in fact, pretty good value for money.
Peppa Pig Fairground Ride Game will be available from Toys R Us soon
