Winter is a wonderland, except when you’re stuck indoors with a bunch of bored tots. If you are desperate for ideas to entertain your kids this dreary winter, here’s an app that might help: Peppa’s Seasons: Autumn and Winter.
Based on the British animated television series, this app takes kids on a seasonal inspired adventure with Peppa and her family. It offers 4 fun-filled games and other interactive activities, and features characters, music, and sound effects from the series.
Explore Autumn and Winter
The first game you can play in the app is fruit picking. You help Peppa and her brother George collect seasonal fruits three places: the trees, the bushes, or the fruit and vegetable places. You can then use the fruits you’ve collected to make jam, juice, or a cake.
The second game is building a snowman. After rolling snowballs to build your snowman, you can decorate it with a large array of props. Three snowman designs are available: Daddy Pig, Mr. Bull, and Ms. Rabbit.
The third game is the tobogganing race. In addition to selecting a toboggan for Peppa, you can help her collect snowflakes on her way down. You can swipe up to make her toboggan jump and catch the snowflakes that are positioned higher on the screen.
In the fourth game, you can explore either an autumn or a winter scene with Peppa and her friends. Each seasonal scene has an array of hotspots that, when discovered, reveal fun animations. For example, you can tap to jump in muddy puddles, flick snowballs at Peppa and George, and tap the clouds to make it snow.
At the end of each game, you may collect stickers for your scrapbook. Other than a fun reward, these stickers encourage kids to replay the games so they can collect new and different stickers.
Parents Need to Know
The app Peppa’s Seasons: Autumn and Winter supports multiple user profiles. Up to 4 players can play on the same device and have their individual progress saved. When you play for the first time, you will be asked to create a kite avatar that bears your preferred icon. The next time you play, simply choose your kite to continue where you left off.
The app has no advertising and no in-app purchases. There is a gated parent’s section that explains how to play the games and how to contact technical support should you need it.
Things I Like
Peppa’s Seasons: Autumn and Winter is great to have around when you’re snowed in. This cheerful app contains mini games that are fun to play and child-friendly. Even though the game mechanics are simple, there is enough variety in each one to keep kids entertained for some time. Fans of Peppa Pig will also enjoy short clips from the TV series that are interspersed throughout the app.
A wonderful feature is the app-wide narration, which includes how to navigate the app and in-game tips. There are also plenty of encouragement and praises to go around, keeping the mood lighthearted.
Perhaps the only downside to this app is its takes up a large amount of space — a whopping 1.1GB. This is space that not every people will have on their device. There are also quite a few loading screens that you have to go through whenever you play. If the app could somehow be optimized in terms of file size and loading times, I think it would increase the app’s value.
Peppa’s Seasons: Autumn and Winter offers fun-filled mini games that can help cure cabin fever. Each game is designed to be easy to use by preschoolers, with excellent narration to help them get started. Other fun details include sticker rewards and short clips from the TV series. A great app for fans of Peppa Pig everywhere.
