Review; Peppa Pig shopping centre playset.

 Peppa pig shopping centre review 





The Peppa Pig shopping centre is full of interactive role play fun. 


From the shops changing with the flip of the background and shop sign to the moving lift and the sounds from the tannoy and buttons. 


Grandbaby1 loves Peppa Pig and she has had so much fun pretending to fill the shopping trolleys while visiting the different shops like the bakery, pizza restaurant, ice cream parlour and more. 






The small Peppa figure has used the lift quite a lot! Just push it down to the bottom and then press the release button for it to travel up to the second floor. 


The tannoy system which fits on to the top of the shopping centre (with working microphone) is great fun. With shouts of ‘Mrs Rabbit to aisle 5 please’ and ‘special offer on 2 for 1 pizzas’ we’ve had great fun role playing so many different ideas. 


Even the small table that sits in the pizza/ice cream area changes what’s on the plates to suit each shop and the changes that can be made. 


Suitable for ages 3 and up with six different shop fronts in total including toy store, pizzeria, cake store, fruit & veg store, bakery and ice cream parlour and 12 accessory pieces it provides endless different play options. 






This was a definite hit in our house and kept Grandbaby1 playing for ages. She loved the different shop options and would change the shop fronts regularly, which was so easy to do and all the pieces can be used for any of the shops. 


The Peppa Pig shopping centre playset can be bought from Argos here; https://tinyurl.com/y6zxt2c5 and is priced at £40.

REVIEW; Pensilly, the silly drawing game. Fun for all the family

Pensilly, the silly fun drawing game for all the family. 




We were sent a new game to try this week and what great fun we’ve had with it! 


Pensilly is a drawing description game with the added difficulty of the pen vibrating while you try and draw. 


Team up with friends or family to try and draw what’s written on the cards so your team mates can guess it correctly. 


With description and object cards you have to pick one of each on your go. Then draw what the cards say. For example I picked a lazy ice cream! 





The children thought some of the card combinations were hilarious and with the added difficulty of the vibrating pen it made for some very funny looking pictures and done even funnier guesses! 


The two cards together really make the game fun, exciting and sometimes you get some very interesting images drawn with no clue what it’s meant to be but that’s all part of the fun! 


The super silly drawing and guessing game for all the family! Take a Description card, take a Subject card and try your best to draw them for your team to guess and win points. With the timer running you do feel the pressure and with 2 levels of play and over 5,500 drawing combinations, how fast can you work the pen?







For ages 6+ which meant the whole family could get involved. We had great fun taking it in turns to be the person doing the drawing for the other team members to guess. 


The younger ones especially liked the fact that there was the option to score points when if only one card had been guessed correctly. Each card has different points which are stated on the cards when drawn from the pile. 



Will you be drawing a drum volcano, a windmill in the bath or even a flying Christmas tree?! With varying points displayed on the cards, the first team to 20 points wins. 


This  is a fun, fast paced, drawing game that gets the whole family involved. We loved it and would highly recommend it.
