Meet Peppa Pig
Since 2004, Peppa Pig has been making waves as a five-minute preschool animated television series. It is created, directed and produced by Astley Baker Davis and distributed by E1 Kids. Each episode revolves around an anthropomorphic female pig named, Peppa, and her everyday activities together with her family and friends. Although her friends are of the same age as hers, they are of different mammal species such as dogs, cats, rabbits, sheep, etc.
Peppa Pig and her family and friends are featured wearing clothes and doing human activities like riding bikes, driving cars, going to the playground, or visiting relatives. However, they still demonstrate characteristics typical of animals they represent. For example, Peppa and her family snort as they converse in English, the Rabbit family loves to feast on carrots, and the Elephants use their trunk as an extra hand. The characters also effectively display human emotions such as happiness, sadness, surprise, and irritation.
A Peppa Pig themed party is dream come true for children aged three to six. Make your kid’s birthday a happy occasion by inviting not only his/her friends but the celebrity pig, her family and playmates to entertain the little ones.

Hide the images all over the party area. Like a treasure hunt, let the kids race to find all of Peppa Pig’s family and friends in quick time to win a prize.

Next, arrange the seats in a circle and ask the children to occupy them. Pass a big Peppa Pig foil balloon around while the show’s theme song is being played. When the music stops, the child with the balloon is asked to pick a surprise item from the Peppa Pig gift bag. This game makes each child a happy winner.
