Miss C was sent the Peppa Pig Fairground game from Jumbo to review. This game is suitable for ages 3+ and for 2-4 players.
The Peppa Pig Fairground game is a fun, family game that is easy for young children to play with little adult help. It doesn't need batteries to work so as soon as it is assembled out of the box, (which the kids managed to do themselves!) it is ready to play.
Each player chooses a Peppa Pig to play. Peppa wears a different coloured dress so players can choose which colour they want to be. This confused Peppa Pig enthusiast Miss C; there is a yellow Peppa which Miss C said was cousin Chloe and then a blue Peppa which she said was George. I think it would have been better to have the characters from Peppa's family as playing pieces.
Each player sits their Peppa Pig on a swing on the fairground ride. Play starts with the youngest player who pushes down on the big red plunger. This makes the fairground ride spin round. When the fairground ride stops, if your Peppa Pig's seat is on top of a "hop off" square then you take your Peppa Pig off the ride. You then need to place your Peppa wherever you think an empty seat will stop on the next spin. The winner is the Peppa who is the last one sitting on the fairground ride.
We had fun playing this game as it really is quite easy to follow. I also love how the fairground could become a playset for Miss C's Peppa Pig play sets. The kids loved playing the game but they also had lots of fun trying to make the Peppa Pigs fly off the fairground ride, which they will do if they are not pushed down on their seats properly.
We gave this a big 9/10 - We would have preferred if the playing pieces could have been Peppa's family and not just Peppa Pigs.
