We brought these from asda when they were on special offer at £5 each there are 2 varieties you can get in the set including this school and the supermarket. Trying to get this toy from the packaging was a nightmare I honestly do not know what they were thinking it sits in a cardboard box which is screwed in to the bottom of the toy. So not only do you have the usual plastic snips to untangle you also have to go and get a screw driver to open this toy from excessive amount of packaging.
With this set you receive 1 plastic school play set this is modelled on the school classroom from the TV shows. It has a door that opens and closes and 2 windows moulded into it the windows do not open or close they are just there for show. The whole of the back of the classroom is open there is nothing there which makes it easy for little one t get characters in and out if they find it too difficult in the door although this did confuse my daughter a little she kept asking me where the back wall of the classroom had gone.
The whole classroom is has painted features all over it that make it look lovely there are flowers painted on the boarder of the outside of the school house a bell on the top and lots of details to make the school house look appealing. On the inside it is the same it has pictures on the wall a black board with numbers on it and a clock on the wall. All these little details are what make the school house appealing my daughter noticed new things each time she played with it so for something that does so little this is a plus.
Also with the set you receive a Madame Gazelle figure who is the teacher on the TV show and a desk and a bench for the classroom. Madame Gazelle's arms and kegs move so she can be bended and moved around with ease. The desk has 2 books and pencils detailed on it and the bench fits well lined up with it for characters to sit on it.
The bench has moulded indents to help aid 2 characters to sit tight on them but as Madame Gazelle is bigger than the standard characters she does not fit in there. We have actually found that no adult figures are able to sit in them from our other peppa pig sets but all the children figurines are able too.
They fit easily inside and are very well made of strong durable plastic as is the school house itself and so far it has lasted over a year with no problems. A common fault with peppa pig toys is for doors to fall off and as this was the only functional thing on the school house I thought this would happen in the matter of days but I am surprised to say that 15 months on the door is still intact and every piece of this set still looks brand new. It has received a lot of play in this time with my girl being Peppa pig mad she has her sets out near on every single day.
Although this set can be used on its own with the figure and desk you receive with it this does not provide much to do for little one as she is too big to sit in the desk and the plastic school house does not do anything itself what my daughter found best was using her peppa pig classroom set she already received the birthday before and adding in characters from other peppa pig play sets make this a much more interesting toy.
These toys retail at £10 and are suitable for 3 years plus although my daughter received them when she was 2 and we have had no problems with them there are no small parts and no reason they can not be used from a younger age. Although I would recommend these as my daughter loves hers they simply do not do much and do be prepared to buy more accessories to make it more interesting when little one gets bored.
This was a gift for this Christmas for my daughter Hollie from her granddad to go with the Peppa Pig world of play sets gift my grandparents bought for her. Hollie loves Madame Gazelle and the Bing bong song that she sings when Peppa and her friends ask for her to sing it on the TV programme we watch.
THIS TOY SET:
This toy set is made up of a 3 walled building with windows and a door which opens and closed. Inside you will find a desk and chair set with a Madame Gazelle figure too.
The chair is really cool, you can sit two of the little characters inside (Peppa and her friends) but you cannot sit adults of little George on it which is a shame but it's rather fun to see the characters slot into the little section of the chair.
This play set is all about imagination just like the world of play sets that she received this year. Hollie is going to be 3 in April and her imagination is amazing and coming along so well that we decided this sort of present would help it along much quicker. Since she has opened this, she has played with it every day. There aren't really any small parts to choke on so I think it is suitable for many children just keep your eye on then while they are playing. There are lots of stickers making up the décor on the outside and inside which are already stuck onto the building when you purchase this. The desk which comes with this play set has some moulded books and papers which will give the effect that the children are learning at school.
Hollie's favourite parts of Peppa pig are when they are at school with Madame Gazelle, so I'm glad my father decided to buy her this school room set. The playset it all made from plastic and it rather hard wearing.
There isn't too much to say on this play item as it doesn't do a lot without your children using their imagination to make it seem more alive that how us adults view it.
Hollie loves this set. She has 8 characters in total and she puts them all together in the school and talks to them whilst watching Peppa pig on the TV to get ideas of what she should be saying. I haven't seen her play with a toy as much as she has these peppa play sets, so we will be using her Christmas money to buy a few more play sets in the sales.
Worth the money that was paid for this item. We definitely look forward to getting her more and more sets as her imagination and her interaction with her toys are at her peak when she is playing with these sets which is brilliant for us to encounter.
My dad bought this set in ASDA for around £10-15 and online it is around the same price give or take a few pounds. worth investing in!
