Hi, I’m Laura from Yummy Mummy Flabby Tummy and this is our second review from our Toyologist box of goodies. Today I’m writing our review on the Peppa Pig Giant Snakes and Ladders. For the price of this item, please click on the product link.
What is Peppa Pig Giant Snakes and Ladders? I don’t know anyone that hasn’t played snakes and ladders before. This version of snakes and ladders is no different from any other snakes and ladders except that is Peppa Pig themed. Miss C loves Peppa Pig so she was delighted to play this game with me. It is suitable for ages 3 and over and for 2-4 players. It is priced at £9.97
What comes in the box? In the box there is the (wipe-clean!) playing mat which is 80cms by 80cms, so it is a good size. There are 4 counters in different colours with the characters Mummy Pig, Daddy Pig, George and Peppa pictured on top and a large, foam dice. The play mat has 50 squares with a picture on each square, making it really colourful and exciting to look at. Miss C kept pointing out Peppa and George and telling me what they were doing. There are no instructions included in the box, however, it is quite self-explanatory.
How long does game play last? Our game lasted about 10 minutes which I think is long enough for a child of Miss C’s age. Miss C is 3. She was starting to get fidgety when she went down a few snakes, especially ones near the top. I felt there was a good amount of snakes to go down and ladders to go up to carry the game and make it fun.
Are there any drawbacks to Peppa Pig Giant Snakes and Ladders? If I was being really picky, it would probably be the size of the play mat. When it said “giant”, I was expecting it to be bigger than it actually was and this is only because we have another snakes and ladders game in the theme of a famous toy train and it really is giant with 100 squares. However, the smaller size means it’s easier for toddlers to play and stay engaged in game play. It also means it is ideal for travelling with for any holidays as it folds up neatly in the box.
Is it value for money? For superfans of Peppa Pig – yes I think I’d be happy to pay the current price as it seems in line with other Peppa Pig merchandise and toys I’ve bought before.
Would I recommend Peppa Pig Giant Snakes and Ladders to a friend? Yes I would, but only if their child liked Peppa Pig. The playing mat is a good size, the counters and the dice are big enough for small hands to handle and it’s a fun game to play. It encourages children to count and learn about turn-taking and also teaches the concept of winning and losing.
We give it an 8/10 – Giant is a bit mis-leading!
