This is not a harmful show, but it is stupid. A lot of bad messages, like fat shaming are shoved down toddlers with this show and with an episode of Mr Skinny legs is highly inappropriate

This is a show to maybe watch WITH your kids. I don't allow my little to watch this on his own. Peppa is extremely rude and isn't a good model for how a kid should act. There's a lot of disrespect, and rude comments thrown around that don't have any consequences. A specific episode included two grandfather parents arguing about a greenhouse insulting one another. Another episode Peppa was upset with her friend and was rude to the friend with no interference by her parents. I think there are so many BETTER non-violent cute shows that I'd rather my kid watch.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (25 ):
Kids say (117 ):

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.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
