Living Arrows - April 2020



Another month in lockdown but we are quickly getting used to this new normal.  Noah doesn't mind being home from school but it's been a bit of a struggle with Ava as she doesn't really know whats going on - she's only three after all. You may or may not notice that I've been taking a bit of a backseat when it comes to the blog and social media while this is all going on. That said, I'm only an email, tweet, or DM away if anyone ever wants to talk. 

April was spent a lot like March - indoors, homeschooling, baking, playing, painting, crafting, watching movies, taking the dog for one walk a day, laughing, and making memories. Easter was quite a sad state of affairs as we usually do so much with our family, especially the kids great grandparents who like to make a fuss with lots of chocolate surprises. We did a little egg hunt in our house, which revolved around lots of different questions and clues - they loved it and that's all that matters.

Peppa's Day at the Zoo & Peppa Pig Classic Car - Review


AD - We were sent these products for the purpose of this review.


Ava is one of Peppa Pig's biggest fans - I think she'd spend all day watching the show on TV if I let her. Her love of the show has well and truly made her obsessed with all things Peppa - she has Peppa bedding, clothing, books, pens, and of course toys! With this in mind, I was more than happy to accept two new Peppa Pig toys to review.


Character Toys recently released a dozen new playsets to their already extensive range of Peppa Pig toys - all the new products have a vehicle and storybook theme which adds a whole new element to play. We received the Classic Car with Peppa Pig and Peppa's Day at the Zoo playsets - both looked fantastic and Ava couldn't wait to play with them.


The Peppa Pig Classic Car set consists of yes, you guessed it, Peppa Pig and her family's famous little red car. It's suitable for children from 3 years of age and retails at £11.00. There's a large space in the driver's seat, ready and waiting for Mummy or Daddy Pig to buckle up and drive away - though they aren't included with the set. The passenger seats are just the right size for Peppa as they are to scale to the figures. Mummy Pig, Daddy Pig, George, and friends can be purchased with other playsets.


Peppa's Day at the Zoo set is so much fun and the one that Ava wanted to open first. The set includes x3 character; Peppa Pig, Gerald Giraffe, and Mr. Lion, a zoo sign, zoo cart, tortoise, and butterfly cage. Again, this toy is suitable for children from 3 years of age and retails at £13.00. Mr. Lion looks amazing and is a real showstopper - Ava hasn't put him down since she opened the pack this morning. How cool is he?


Ava has had so much fun playing with these sets this afternoon - it's been a joy watching her create different role-play scenarios with the different characters and accessories. It's also great how these playsets can be interchanged and the more sets you have, the more fun you'll have! You can purchase Peppa's Day at the Zoo Book & Peppa Pig Classic Car online at Argos.
