When I Grow Up, What Will I Be?
Peppa Pig, George, and all their friends, love to imagine what they will be when they grow up! 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! 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. For fans who want to play pretend themselves and explore with Peppa, there are lots of options for When I Grow Up play time fun with toys from Big Balloon and books from Penguin Books.
