The parents' guide to what's in this app.

Educational Value

Kids can learn a bit about track and field events, and more importantly, about winning and losing. Kids can develop fine motor skills, using their fingers to move the characters, but there's not much strategy involved. Since multiple players can participate, Peppa Pig's Sports Day can help a bit with social skills -- developing cooperative and competitive play boundaries and having fun.

Ease of Play

Running, jumping, and pulling is all controlled by tapping. Verbal instructions walk kids through each game.

Violence & Scariness
Sexy Stuff

The game ties in with the Nick Jr. show Peppa Pig. A link to other apps is behind two different passcode-protected parent screens.

Drinking, Drugs & Smoking

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that Peppa Pig: Sports Day features characters from the Nick Jr. show Peppa Pig participating in six different events -- an obstacle race, long jump, bicycle race, tug-of-war, ice cream making, and rosette making. Kids can play alone, or -- for the races, long jump, and tug-of-war -- play against up to three others. The app's designers have made it super-safe for kids by choosing not to collect any analytics or data. Up to three kids can create accounts on each device.

Good Game

But This Review I- How Is It 18+ This is family friendly

What's it about?

Peppa Pig and friends compete in Sports Day. Kids choose an event from obstacle race, long jump, ice cream making, bicycle race, tug-of-war, or rosette making. Friends or family can join them in the racing and tug-of-war games just by dragging their character choice onto the playing field, or kids can play alone against the app. They'll use their creativity to make and decorate their own ice cream sundae and rosette ribbon, and they'll earn stickers for each event they win. Kids can then decorate scenes with the stickers they've earned.

Is it any good?

This is a great app for siblings to enjoy together or for kids to play with mom or dad. The extra players can come and go, just playing an event or two and then moving on without impacting the overall game. The mix of creative games (making rosettes or ice cream) and sports (bicycle racing, tug-of-war, obstacle races, and long jump) will appeal to a broad range of kids. The details make it even more adorable -- the rosettes kids create appear in the games. 

Talk to your kids about ...

  • Take the fun outside and have your own family sports day with a tug-of-war, long jump, and races complete with handmade ribbons and ice cream.

  • Share the fun inside with the app by playing in multiplayer mode.
