Adventures with two

Our adventures; Peppa Pig World

February 8, 2017

We went to Peppa Pig World with the girls before Christmas. Amelie loves that little pink pig possibly more than me so we thought it would A) be a fun adventure and B) split a journey up down to my parents in Dorset.

And I was right, she does loves Peppa more than me…

It’s true. As soon as we walked in and she heard the music (which by the way is playing all around Peppa Pig World) we’d lost her. Her eyes lit up and she practically sprinted to the entrance – even the map of the park was enough to have her almost hysterical. I have never seen her so exited to be somewhere.

Perfect size for toddlers
We loved Peppa Pig World for its size, it was perfect for little ones. It wasn’t too big so you felt overwhelmed but big enough to keep a family amused for a day. We went in December so not everything was open but we found enough to do for the morning.

What we did
We attempted most things with Amelie, but she is a fairly nervous child so unfortunately we didn’t get on many of the rides but I think in a year or so’s time she’ll be ready to go on Grandpa Pigs train or on a digger / a boat.

As it was quite cold when we went we spent a lot of the time in the soft play area. This was a fantastic place for little ones. Amelie loved climbing and playing with all the balls in the ball zone. It was clean, safe and you could see your little ones wherever they had escaped to!
They have a fantastic playground, we laughed that we’d paid and driven all the way to Peppa Pig World for her to go on a swing but the environment was totally different and she loved the rainbow road leading up to the park equipment.

They also had some penguins with feeding time viewing and some good windows around the pool for toddlers to watch them swim round – Amelie loved this.

Another favourite was Peppa’s house where they had figures of the family which played out a scene from one of the episodes. I think we watched the loop about 10 times before I was able to drag her out.

Family friendly
I love a place that has clean facilities. I’m boring I know, but when you have a toddler and a baby in nappies it’s important! The changing rooms were clean and had toddler toilets which would be great for when Amelie is a little older.
The food was also good, they had lots of snacks for toddlers and if you’re formula feeding bottles of milk, perfect for that emergency feed! We did find that the cafe got very busy around toddler lunchtime so next time I would load Amelie with a few more snacks and go later to avoid the rush.
It was a great place to take both toddler and baby. Evie slept for most of the trip in the pram and if she was awake there were plenty of places to feed her or sit with her.

The gift shop
This was our final stop as we weren’t allowed to exit through anywhere other than the shop which at the time with an overtired toddler was a bit of a nightmare. We ended up buying two Peppa soft toys and thought we’d dodged a tantrum but when we didn’t let her pay with my card (which she loves doing) we had a full on meltdown and had to run to the car. If you have a toddler that still naps, plan your escape before they get overtired!
We loved Peppa Pig World and will definitely be back in the Summer.

    We went last Summer (prior to school hols) and had such a fab time. We did two days at the Park and spent one in Peppa Pig World and the other day in Paultons.

    Such a great place for Peppa fans

      It really is isn’t it. We loved it. We didn’t spend much time in Paultons, is that for much older children? X

    Oh I love the sound of this! My toddler loves Peppa Pig despite never actually watching an episode (to my knowledge). His favourite book is a Peppa book! He’d love it here.
    I like the look of the little details, like the rainbow floor, and the toilets being nice and clean.
    It is a bit tiring to always have to leave through the giftshop; it sounds like you could’ve done without that kind of end to a lovely sounding day out!

    Thanks for joining #daysoutwithatoddler! See you again next month 🙂

      oh he would absolutely love it. Even if he didn’t go on the rides the soft play and playground are fab. x

    We passed this on our way home from the Isle of Wight last year, we considered going in but at 7 I am not sure my eldest would find it her cup of tea. Sounds great for little peppa fans though #daysoutwithatoddler
