Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Peppa Pig's 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.

Engagement, Approach, Support

Engagement

Kids can play alone or with one or more friends, competing in the track and field events. Even the less competitive events will impress them, especially when kids see the ribbons they designed presented to winners in the games.

Learning Approach

Kids play together, learning to win and lose gracefully -- important skills for everyone to learn. The sports events may even encourage kids to get outside and try them out in real life.

Support

No real scores are kept, but there are winners (and therefore losers) in each game. If a kid is playing only the computer, he or she will usually win, though. Data is kept from the creative events, though, so kids will see the ribbons they create used in the other games.

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.

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?

QUALITY
 

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. 

Families can talk 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.
