A few weeks ago, I was contacted by UKMums.tv to ask if I remembered Weebles. My reply was a squeal and a quick rendition of "Weebles wobble but they won't fall down", much to the Madhouse Mini-testers' bemusement ! When I was offered the chance to review a new Weebles playset, I was keen to see what modern youngsters would think. Would Weebles still appeal to them? Well, I think Pierre's face when he laid eyes on it answers that question !
It was a pretty safe bet really because Character Options have launched a new range of Peppa Pig Weebles, which were bound to appeal to Pierre.
We received the Weebles Wind and Wobble Playhouse, but the range also includes a Push Along Wobbily Car and a Pull Along Wobbily Train.
The house (which Pierre has decided is a tree house for some reason !) is the perfect piggy playground. There is a wind-up conveyor belt which Peppa can sit in to go up to the top of the slide. At the bottom of the slide there is a muddy puddle and there is also a swing.
Pierre was instantly intrigued and worked out what to do all by himself.
He loves turning the handle to make her go up (and giggles if she wobbles and falls off !).
What goes up must come down !
Wheeeeee, splosh - into the muddy puddle !
The playset comes with one exclusive Peppa Weeble but you can buy all the others separately for £4.99 each. You can get George, Emily Elephant, Pedro Pony, Rebecca Rabbit, Suzy Sheep and Zoe Zebra.
Pierre has been having lots of fun playing with just Peppa but I think it would have been nice to have at least one other character in the box, even if this pushed the price up by a few pounds.
If you have a little Peppa fan, the Weebles are bound to get a positive reaction - and if you're a child of the seventies or eighties, you won't be able to resist having a sneaky wobble when nobody is looking too !
star rating : 4.5/5
RRP : £29.99 for the Wind & Wobble Playhouse, £4.99 for the extra Weebles
