However, while the majority have remained in their good graces for a short time before the interest soon disappeared, there is one charming character and series that managed to catch their attention and never let go.
Admittedly, I find myself just as interested and curious to see this adorable family of pink pigs talk, laugh and snort their way through cute adventure after cute adventure. It's clear that Peppa Pig is a favorite that is here to stay!
A longtime favorite with British children, Peppa Pig arrived in the U.S. in early 2011, airing on Nick Jr for preschool-aged children. This adorable series stars Peppa, a loveable, energetic little piggy, along with her family – her little brother, George, Mummy Pig and Daddy Pig – as they play games, dress up, go to school, take family trips and, best of all, jump in muddy puddles... all with a sweet and engaging British accent.
So while my girls have enjoyed snorting and giggling along with the show, the only disappointment is that it doesn't seem to have a set place in our television channel's lineup. One day we'll happen upon it as a happy surprise... and then we won't see it again for another few weeks.
Which is why we were even more excited to find out that Peppa Pig: My Birthday Party is available on DVD today, March 18th, to be enjoyed anytime, anywhere!
Immersing viewers in 80 minutes of the charm and magic of Peppa's world, Peppa Pig: My Birthday Party is broken into 14 fun-packed "Peppasodes" from the award-winning series and two educational extras. As each one is only around five minutes long, short attention spans don't ever get bored!
At the same time, I continually find that each of the storylines of this show still manage to contain plenty of Peppa's signature lighthearted, laugh-out-loud approach to storytelling that makes the show truly enjoyable for both children and parents.
The complete list of episodes on this DVD includes:
- My Birthday Party
- The Playground
- Fancy Dress Party
- Ballet Lesson
- Grandpa Pig's Boat
- Daddy Puts Up a Picture
- School Play
- Rebecca Rabbit
- Tidying Up
- Grandpa’s Little Train
- At the Beach
- Frogs, Worms and Butterflies
- Cleaning the Car
- DVD Extras: Learn the Alphabet and Learn to Count
If this darling pink pig can help pass on positive messages such as kindness, consideration and listening to your parents while keeping us all entertained and giggling over the innocence and mischievousness of children, then it's no wonder that we have watched it over and over again!
Recommended for ages 2-7, Peppa Pig: My Birthday Party is one example of "feel-good children's programming" that the entire family is sure to enjoy. This new DVD is available now with a retail price of $14.98 on Amazon as well as in stores near you. We have yet to tire of seeing these cheeky little piggies and their friends and plan on inviting Peppa and her family into our home in more ways in the future!
