In the way of all pre-schoolers, imaginative play and play acting are part of the fun for our favourite little piggy and her playgroup friends.
Peppa Pig often finds herself in various guises, from Nurse to Zoo Keeper, Chef to Pirate, Magician and even as a Singer. While George too gets up to his own shenanigans as a Fireman, Astronaut, Detective, and Footballer… just to name a few!
In fact, all the characters explore different roles, careers and activities, designed to appeal to pre-schoolers who may have dreams of being lots of different things, when they grow up!
Pretend Play Is So Important For Kids
According to Professor of Early Childhood Studies at Flinders University, Nicola Yelland, pretend play provides us with a window into the ways in which young children are interpreting the world, and how they are making meaning about the behaviours, actions and ideas that they experience.
“The new focus for Peppa Pig ‘When I Grow Up’ programs has the potential to be a rich source of learning for young children,” Professor Yelland said. “They already resonate with the character, her family and friends and will relate to the scenarios about roles and responsibilities that different citizens in our communities have.”
“Children love watching Peppa and her friends in their various adventures and if they are able to see Peppa and her friends envisioning their future lives as farmers, fire personnel, doctors and various other professions, they will be able to explore and experiment with these roles in embodied contexts that characterise pretend play. Additionally, with other toys and materials they will be able to extend this play into different modalities to creatively deepen their learning understandings about the world.”
