  • We got our hands on one and you can read our in-depth review , but in this review I look at how it stacks up against the current most popular model in our household – at least with my 2-year-old daughter Alice – the Peppa Pig phone.

    The Peppa Pig phone is made of two pieces of cheap-as-you-like plastic that are probably non-toxic – but it's been dropped down the stairs, onto concrete, into a paddling pool and three different sandboxes, and still works just as well as it did when we bought it. It even made it round a 60-degree wash and came out fine.

  • The Peppa Pig phone has a magic technology that means it only makes calls and sends/receives messages when Alice is using it. Neither me nor my girlfriend can make it do anything.

    The Peppa Pig phone can be used to make calls anywhere at anytime – even in the bath. It can't access the web, but you can use it to phone up Nanny and ask her to tell you or buy you what you wanted.

  • We've never charged the Peppa Pig phone and it's yet to run out of power. Which is good as the manufacturers didn't supply a charger, and there appears to be no way to charge it either. Unless it's using wireless charging, which again puts it ahead of the iPhone 5s.

Children will have fun as they learn with the interactive Peppa Pig toy phone. Flip open the baby pink phone-lid and press the call-key to hear Peppa Pig talk. End the pretend conversation with the hang-up key or press any of the 26 light-up numbered keys to hear the tones. There are 8 fun activities to choose from and the ring tone can be changed by pressing the hash/star key and if the picture key is pressed Peppa will appear on the phone's screen.
