Peppa is a lovable, exuberant little piggy who lives with her little brother George, Mommy Pig, and Daddy Pig. Peppa’s favorite things include playing games, dressing up, days out, and jumping in muddy puddles. Her adventures always end happily with loud snorts of laughter.
This weekend, Peppa Pig will be embarking on yet another one of her adventures but, unbeknownst to her, this one will turn into a whirlwind trip around the world. You see, although Peppa’s family had planned to celebrate the start of their summer holiday on the right foot, the day goes awry when their car breaks down. Luckily, a family friend is there to lend a hand (and a plane!) and the high-flying adventure, quite literally, takes off from there!
Young fans can tune-in to the Nick Jr. channel for a special marathon of back-to-back Peppa Pig episodes beginning Sunday, March 26th at 7pm ET, leading up to the debut of the “Around the World with Peppa” special episode.
As a Peppa Pig Parent, I was given the chance to view the special in advance of this weekend’s debut. Despite only being able to watch it from the computer, the children were eager to snuggle up and join in on the fun. They thoroughly enjoyed the screening and happily giggled, oohed, and aahed throughout, however, it was what came afterward that was most exciting. After having watched and taken in everything from Peppa’s grand adventure around the world, the kids started imagining their very own trips to here and there.
Peppa Pig’s stop in the jungle to visit her friend Pedro Pony turned into a backyard adventure with the kids swinging from our swing set’s “vines” and narrowly escaping the scary, creepy, crawly jungle animals.
