Great for preschoolers

My 5 year-old daughter loves it. It is the sort of cartoon I know I can leave her alone watching, no need to worry about violence or inappropriate content for her age. The noise the pigs make once in a while, well, it's pig noise, children find this funny. I find it curious how people tend to forget when they were this age, and review innocent cartoon saying they are boring. Of course I wouldn't chose Peppa Pig to have great entertainment for myself, isn't it obvious? My child choses it. And she laughs a lot watching it - and I do to, since what makes her happy, makes me happy.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (11):
Kids say (86):

Sweet, gentle, and easygoing, this series is perfect for the younger set, with great voice work and simple animation. The relationship between Peppa and her younger brother George is particularly realistic: Peppa sometimes gets in (mild) trouble for teasing him, or gets comeuppance after underestimating him. It's sort of like Max and Ruby, except there are actually pig parents around to teach lessons.

Children will enjoy the way Peppa and her family members snort as they talk, and they may imitate some of the animal sounds from other characters. But Peppa Pig is low-key enough that it won't send kids barking and snorting and bouncing off the walls when they're done watching.
