How to Create & Design a Peppa Pig Bedroom for Under £100

Peppa Pig first hit our TV screens back in 2004 and most of us with kids will have a love hate relationship with the little piggy who isn’t always the best behaved example for our children to follow however she has become a massive hit showing in no less than 180 countries across the world.

Actress Harley Bird started voicing Peppa when she was just five years old and has stuck with the pig ever since.

Peppa Pig merchandise is one of our officially licensed characters and as such it is released in themed collections. Once each production run has been sold it has all gone so you might think that it would be expensive to create a themed room but you can actually come in under £100 and here’s how …

Peppa Pig Bedding

The range includes single duvets and toddler bedding size too. If you keep your eyes open the occasional double duvet is released. With summer on the horizon and the weather warming up, if only a little here in the chilly North of England, it would be rude not to feature the Nautical range which features Peppa and her brother George enjoying the seaside. This particular Peppa Pig single bedding is a rotary design with a repeat pattern which keeps the cost down to £13.95.

Peppa Pig Fleece Blanket

A fleece blanket is extremely versatile. It is obviously intended as an additional layer for your child’s bed on a cold night but if it’s too warm for a duvet and your little one still wants some sort of cover you can use it instead of the heavy, warmer bedding.

But there are many other uses too … use it to snuggle in front of the TV or sit on it in the garden for a picnic. We have issues in our car because the adults are too warm and the kids are too cold so their favourite Peppa Pig fleece blanket solves this and means we don’t have to roast with the heating on high. I’ve even used one draped over my shoulders when I’ve been working in the office on a cold day. A snip at £9.95 you can probably think of a few more things to use it for too.

Peppa Pig Curtains – 54” drop

What a burst of colour this pair of curtains will provide in your themed room. They are not lined and so if your child is a light sleeper a pack of linings would be wise however if you have roller blinds you won’t need to do this. The fun patchwork design features Peppa and her brother George, along with Suzy Sheep, having a day out at the beach. Add them to your basket for £19.95.

Peppa Pig Bean Bag

We love bean bags in our house. They are portable, comfortable and versatile. They have been known to go on sleepovers to grandma’s house and they find their way out in to the garden when the weather is kind. This bright and cheerful version from Peppa’s nautical range is £14.95 and will be well worth the investment. All of our bean bags are filled with fire retardant beads.

Peppa Pig Wall Stickers

When it comes to wall stickers I’m one of their biggest fans. We painted our daughter’s bedroom once in six years but transformed it three times over that period using self adhesive, removable stickers.

This pack of Peppa Pig wall stickers is especially fun because for just £14.95 you get thirty nine elements to create your scene with.

Remember to wait thirty days after you have decorated the walls for the paint to dry out before you apply any stickers or Peppa could slide off.

Peppa Pig Kool Lamp

Kool Lamps are indeed very cool.

The light bulb is fully enclosed so you child can’t touch it and the lamp doesn’t get hot so if small fingers do get curious they won’t get hurt. There’s also a rocker switch to turn the lamp on and off so that you don’t need to touch the plug to operate it.

Peppa fans will love this version of the bedside lamp as the famous pig is very much the star of the show here. This is the final addition to your shopping list at £17.95.

In Conclusion …

So there we have it five Peppa Pig themed products which come in at £91.70. If your budget is tighter you could pick out the statement pieces from the list, the bedding and curtains, and choose either the lamp or the wall stickers to add to them.

If you have any questions about any of these products please get in touch and we will be more than happy to help. Remember, we also stock a wider range of Kids Bedding & Bedroom Accessories including bedding suitable for teenagers.
