Peppa Pig's Spaceship Playset £12.43 @ Argos
Peppa Pig's Spaceship Playset is normally priced at around £24. I know that's what I paid for one about three and a half years ago. My son was three at the time, and absolutely loved this. For a solid week he carried it everywhere, stopping every so often to put it on the ground and listen to the countdown to launch. Argos is selling the Spacehip for £12.43, that's roughly half the price.
Includes 2=two figures. The set comes complete with George Pig and Danny Dog all ready in their silver space suits. The spaceship has compartments and opening doors. My only criticism is of the top door. This folds down, which is odd as that makes it rather prone. It is especially awkward having it open during play. The door very quickly broke off the spaceship, which is a shame.
You can lift the spaceship in play mode to hear it roar and 'voice' many phrases. My son particularly liked the countdown - 5, 4, 3, 2, 1 LIFTOFF! If I remember rightly (and my memory isn't that fantastic) you activated this by holding the rocket by the handle and firmly placing it on the ground.
The handle is fabulous. Big, and strong it is just the right size for a little one to grip. Also the rocket is quite light and my son happily carried it down the road to nursery and back. It requires three AA batteries (not included) and is recommended for ages 3 years and over.
