Riding on the back of the Summer of sport is this fantastic app from the popular Peppa Pig range by P2 games. Peppa Pig's Sports Day is a brilliant app which allows your little ones to be introduced to the concept of competitive sports in a fun, secure and familiar setting.
There are four races to take part in, alongside a refreshments kiosk where players can make and design their own ice-creams, a rosette making game, and a sticker section to make scenes from awarded stickers.
The four races allow for four of the Peppa Pig characters to be chosen and played with in the game, which means that up to four players can take part. However, if your little one is playing by themselves, then they can choose just one of the characters and compete against the computer.
The four games are: Obstacle Race, Bike Race, Long Jump and Tug of War. They require the players to tap their character on the side of the screen to move the 'avatar' along in the race.
In the ice-cream parlour, players can add ingredients to a bowl, mix it, add it to an ice-cream maker and then decorate their ice-creams.
It did occur to me that maybe a smoothie might have been a healthier option, but on the other hand, it's a nice addition to the game and The Boy loves concocting odd recipes.
The four pictures at the end of the game which allow the player to build up a scene are a nice addition, especially as the size of the characters can be adjusted to suit.
The Boy loves any Peppa Pig app on the iPad and it provides hours of entertainment for him. I've reviewed a few of them but I've also bought them. At £2.99 they are one of the more pricey apps for children, but the content and quality makes them definitely worth it.
Peppa Pig's Sports Day is available on iTunes for £2.99.
