Kids' app review : Peppa Pig Theme Park

The Madhouse Mini-testers were very pleased to hear that a new Peppa Pig app has been released and even more so to receive a code to review it. They're still playing with the Party Time app that we received over a year ago so I had very high expectations for this new app. Luckily, it totally lived up to them.

As soon as the app had downloaded, both 7-year-old Juliette and 3-year-old Pierre settled down for a loevly session of playing together with absolutely no squabbling - it definitely gets a bonus point for that ! - and no need for any instructions or explanations from me.

This app is based on a visit to a theme park - I wonder if it's Paulton Park where Peppa has his own Peppa Pig World area ?! - and contains an amazing TEN mini games. How's that for brilliant value ? This is the same format as the previous Party Time app and that explains why the Madhouse Mini-testers have been playing with it for so long.

You have the choice between the following mini games :

Train ride - It's time to drive the train, can you take the passengers to the right station?  Ticket's please!  Players can touch the green button to move the train forward, touch the doors to open and close them and even tap the chain to sound the horn!
Musical water fountain - Peppa and George love the musical water fountain! Can you play some lovely tunes? Have fun by touching the coloured circles to make sounds and watch the water spray from the fountain!
Candy floss - Peppa and her family all love candy floss. Can you help Madam Gazelle to make the right candy floss for Peppa and her family?

Water cannon - Peppa loves water gamesCan you help Peppa to use the water cannon to hit the objects? There are lots to ducks and boats to hit! Don’t forget to fill the balloons too!
Hot air balloon Peppa and George are going on a hot air balloon ride.  Can you help to steer the hot air balloon and collect the coloured balloons?  Collect as many as you can and then count the ones you have collected by popping them!
Bumper cars Peppa and her friends really love to play on the bumper cars.  Can you steer the car and help Peppa to bump into the other cars? 
Tea cup ride - Peppa and George really enjoy the tea cup ride!  Join in the fun with Peppa and her friends!

Remote control cars Peppa and George want to play with the remote control cars.  Can you help them steer round the course?  Remember to watch out for hazards!
Shop Tokens have been won for successfully playing each game.  You can buy more stickers for your sticker album in the shop.
Sticker book – Buy virtual stickers in the Theme Park shop and arrange them in a selection of exciting scenes!

The Madhouse Mini-testers love every single one of the mini games (all very simple but also strangely addictive) and also the fact that many of the attractions remind them of things that they have experienced on their own visits to theme parks. I'm convinced that this game will prove just as popular as the Party Time one so I have no doubt they'll still be playing it this time next year !
