KIRKUS REVIEW

A dozen small magnetized figures allow Peppa and friends to play-act or to play with toys in five settings.

Leading suggestions (“Who has the royal princess invited?”) provide prompts for placing the toys and costumed characters around a picnic, under the sea, in a playroom, or other locale. The figures are not identified, and most are so generically drawn that, for instance, either of the bunnies, one crowned and the other in a spacesuit, could be designated Rebecca or Richard Rabbit. The “Wild West” setting includes a teepee, but the four figures in that period’s dress—two fixed in the illustration and two movable ones—are wearing stylized vests and Stetsons, giving it the dubious distinction of participating in both appropriation and erasure. A reusable bubble pack is attached for storage, but the magnetic layers are strong enough to keep the figures in place when the volume is closed or tipped up for display. The offering is labeled for ages 3 and up, and accordingly there is no “choke hazard” warning, though Peppaphiles with younger siblings may need to take extra care.

Playtime possibilities aplenty, at least until the loose pieces are lost. (Novelty. 3-5)
