If your wondering why I am posting rather late on a sunny Saturday day evening, it’s because I am sorting through a huge box of Peppa pig goodies. I can’t do it during the day as Peppa pigs biggest fan “Izebella” will want to play with it all there and then.
Unfortunately my little madam needs to wait until July 5th.
The reason she has to wait is because July 5th marks 10 years since Peppa Pig was first broadcast on Nick Jr. Yes Peppa pig really is 10 years old, meaning Ryan was just a tiny baby when Peppa pig began and it’s still loved by tots everywhere today.
If your little one is also a big Peppa pig fan or even Nick Jr: then you may have seen the Oinkestra adverts and videos of young children oinking away. This is all part of the Oinkestra celebrations and everyone can take part in this by simply taking a short oinking video clip and uploading them to either Nick Jr or through Nick Jr Facebook. Fans can then receive their own Peppa pig activity pack.
The celebrations will culminate with the ultimate Oink-a-thon, where fans can tune in to watch the Top 20 Peppa Pig episodes, as voted by fans, on the Nick Jr. broadcast anniversary 5-6th July 10:30am- 5:00pm. Izebella will be one happy girl watching her favourite characters all day long.
We have been sent a box of Peppa pig goodies to celebrate our very own Oinkestra in two weeks time. We too will be uploading videos of our Oinks. In our box is Peppa pig party pieces. Plates, cups, tablecloth. Several musical instruments and an egg carton with bright pink paint to make our pink oink noses. I can’t see Ryan wearing one tho.
I also have a lovely Nick jr goody bag containing lots of Nick jr goodies. Books, toys, posters and more.
Over the celebration “Oinkestra”weekend I will be giving away 3 of these goody bags so I won’t give too much away just yet.
You will beable to follow the celebrations on and around July 5th on Twitter using #oinkestra and @nickjrUK.
So save the date: July 5th and join us to celebrate Peppa Pigs 10th anniversary. Don’t forget to upload your Oinks.
