My Little One, who is now 7 years old, has the task of reviewing all the kids shows and new releases for me. The latest new release that she reviewed was Peppa Pig: The Balloon Ride.
For a bit of a background, my Little One has loved Peppa Pig since she was a wee one herself. So the task of reviewing the latest Peppa Pig release was an exciting task for her. She thought that The Balloon Ride DVD was awesome. My Little One has even watched it quite a number of times and can be found smiling and laughing throughout the entire DVD.
Here are some details about the newest Peppa Pig release……

The age ranking is for ages 2 to 7 years old. I think that the age ranking is perfect. My 7 year old still enjoys Peppa Pig a lot and was full of smiles and giggles while watching the show.
I really loved the Whistling episode. It made me chuckle and remember when my Little One was learning to whistle. She was determined to learn and a wee bit frustrated when others seemed to do it so easily. Now of course she can whistle no problem and loves to show everyone.
I also loved the Daddy’s Movie Camera episode. In this episode, Peppa knows how to work the movie camera while Mommy and Daddy Pig do not and need to read the instructions. This episode made me chuckle and reminded me of how it seems that our children these days are so technologically inclined, often seeming to know how to do things before us.
The DVD is wonderful with a great line up of episodes that your kids will giggle and laugh along with. You might even find yourself watching and giggling along too.
