Not to let 2 year old ds watch Peppa pig?

I have Netflix and there’s big images of Peppa pig and he keeps asking to watch it but I’ve only heard bad things about it. Is it really that bad ? I’m torn because I personally think I’d hate sitting through it and have heard it’s pretty bad animation and Peppa shows unpleasant behavior with a positive resolution, we currently watch things like puffin rock etc...

Sorry without a positive resolution for the behavior or problems

YANBU. Peppa pig is awful.

I used hate it before even watching it but I quite like it. My daughter loves it too.

Peppa Pig is absolutely fine. I've watched a lot of it with my toddler DS and it's actually ok.

God it's awful - she's shooting up, carries a flick knife, nd the mum and dad are brother and sister hmm

It's a bloody cartoon. Let the kid watch it fgs

I love puffin rock. Props pig is horrible. Brattiest fictional child on tv. Story boys and Shaun the sheep/Timmy time on Netflix also the bomb.

I would rather have every episode of peppa pig wired into my eyeballs then sit through 5 minutes of Bing grin

I never liked it and didn't let either DD watch it. DH recently let our youngest despite me telling him I'd really rather she didn't. One night a teatime she said something quite rude to DH, when he told her off she said "that's what peppa says".

I was smug AF and she now doesn't get it grin

@BernadetteRostankowskiWolowitz wow strong feelings, I’m asking because ds is definitely influenced by tv shows and once he finds something he likes we watch it again and again in two languages.

It’s just a cartoon pig, my daughter loves it.

When my niece started to talk I thought there's a funny accent she's got (we are Welsh) then the penny dropped, she sounded like Peppa flaming Pig.

Nameisthegame Sat 23-May-20 14:36:37

Ds didn’t enjoy story bots but might a little young. @CovidicusRex I’ve never watched Shaun the sheep do you think. 2 is a bit. Young?

Nameisthegame Sat 23-May-20 14:37:10

@TroysMammy omg that’s hilarious 😂

JustaScratch Sat 23-May-20 14:37:24

Oh it's fine. DD loved it and the only thing she actually imitated from it is Daddy Pig saying "you're most welcome" after someone says thank you. Which I was fine with! She loved it for about a year and then moved on to My Little Pony (which is awesome).

Try Puffin Rock though - it's cute and a more of a good influence. On Netflix.

vengeancer Sat 23-May-20 14:38:42

what do you think will happen? confused I can only assume your DC is your PFB grin

stealthbanana Sat 23-May-20 14:38:59

I cannot imagine being so uptight that you decline to watch peppa on the basis she is not well behaved.

It’s ace - especially for younger toddlers as everything is about quite mundane things that toddlers can relate to in the world around them. Lots of jokes for parents. And daddy pig is a legend.

Nameisthegame Sat 23-May-20 14:38:59

@Jazzled I was worried about opening the can of worms as ds would be pretty upset if I let him watch it then took it away obvs get over it but easier to to never watch it.

raviolidreaming Sat 23-May-20 14:41:12

I don't understand why you're posting. You're clearly not going to let him watch it.

TildaTurnip Sat 23-May-20 14:42:49

I don’t understand why people get so worried about Peppa Pig at all!

I even have a favourite episode. It’s the whistling one.

Nameisthegame Sat 23-May-20 14:44:55

I wanted to know what real parents thought, I like the mundane normal family thing @stealthbanana said. I don’t think I’m always right

Hey Duggee is infinitely better

LoadsaBlusher Sat 23-May-20 14:45:43

Peppa pig is completely non offensive

My toddler watches it and hasn’t starting acting out any scenes or snorting like a pig or anything

If it gives you some peace and quiet to sit on your phone and mumsnet then what’s the harm
