Paultons Park and Peppa Pig World, Hampshire

We have a big peppa pig fan in our house, as do most pre-school house holds I'm sure, so when we heard about Peppa Pig World opening we knew we had to go. Charlotte was even doing a count down to visiting... how many sleeps till peppa pig... she was that excited.
When we got there though she seemed to forget all about Peppa Pig and headed straight for the big rides, most rides she had to go on with an adult but a few she happily managed alone. Her real highlight was when we spotted the t-rex next to the astroglide and realised that JollyWobbles (Justin Fletcher) was filmed at Paultons. We then had to hunt out, and go on all the rides Justin had been on (she is also a big Justin fan).
Eventually we made it to Peppa Pig World. It was very busy and 3 year olds aren't well known for lasting long in a queue so we didn't go on too many rides. Did spend a lot of time jumping in muddy puddles and in Mr Potato's playground. The whole area was excellent, really well thought out and so were the rides, the theme worked brilliantly. We loved going into Peppa Pig's house and also meeting the "real" Peppa and George. Compared to the rest of the park the rides were a little tame, I do realise it's for young people but she did prefer some of the bigger rides, much to our surprise.
I see why people can easily go for 2 days at Paultons Park, we didn't see all of it and we were there almost the whole day.
Aside from buying ice creams we didn't eat at Paultons, took a picnic with us so can't comment on food. Entrance price, well Charlotte is petite and still under 1m, but if she was over its just one price for all, which I think is a bit steep, but if you compare to say Legoland its good value.
Only downside were some of the toilet blocks could have done with sprucing up, liked that all the toilets had an adult and child seat though.
If you go and its a nice day make sure you take swimming costumes and towels for muddy puddles and water kingdom.

    Pig's home and also getting together with the "real" Peppa and Henry. As opposed to relax of the playground the drives were a little acquire, I do realize it's for youth but she did desire some of the larger drives, much to our surprise
