App description

World of Peppa Pig is an interactive educational app where players play a variety of games including puzzles, memory and strategy games. There is a ‘Play and Learn’ section which includes a few different types of games (some are locked without paying for the subscription). Examples of these games include dressing Peppa Pig for the day, dragging numbers into their correct order, putting the toys away in the toy box, ‘spot the difference task’ in 2 separate pictures of Peppa, planting seeds in the garden and watching them grow and finding Peppa’s friends during a hide and seek game. World of Peppa Pig also includes a ‘Watch’ section, where players can watch brief episodes or scenes of Peppa Pig the series, which on occasions teach important life lessons e.g. watching Peppa visit her friend in hospital with a broken leg. The ‘Create’ section allows players to paint and colour in pictures of Peppa Pig and her friends. The game requires a variety of skills such as mathematics and very basic reading and strategy skills. This game is for open ended creative play and there is no end goal.

Reviewers comments

This app gives children the opportunity to explore skills such as basic maths, reading, recognition, counting and memory which are made fun through incorporating aspects of Peppa Pig that make the series so charming for children. The free version includes approximately 8 tasks, and whilst this is engaging at the time, young children may enjoy playing these over and over, but older children may lose interest easily. Purchasing of the full paid version includes many more games, and the developer is always adding to this. Parents should be aware that subscribing and paying for the full version can be unlocked when entering the year they were born (this can actually be anything below the year 2000). For older children who can read well, entering numerous years until they find one which allows access could potentially be quite easy, so it’s advisable to restrict purchasing on your device to some extent.

About games and gambling

Most games contain elements of risk, chance and knowledge, that is why they are fun to play. There is growing concern about the impacts of simulated gambling games on the health and wellbeing of children. That's why we are identifying games that contain gambling elements on our site.

The State Government of South Australia's web site http://nogame.com.au/ contains information about these concerns.
