Peppa Pig to join the world of podcasting with Audible

Peppa Pig’s Play-A-Long Podcast will be the first release as part of a podcasting deal between Audible and leading toy and game company, Hasbro.

The six, 15-minute episodes will be voiced by Amelie Bea Smith as Peppa Pig. The podcast features Peppa and her pals in a mix of fun interactive games, outdoor adventures, and catchy sing-alongs with her new band, The Piggy-Wigs.

Peppa Pig’s Play-A-Long Podcast provides another medium through which Peppa can inspire confidence and foster development in pre-schoolers. As a lifelong friend, she encourages kids to jump in together and explore the world around them, while instilling confidence to treat every first step as a new adventure – from the everyday to the epic.

Specifically designed for families with preschool children in mind, the podcast is also a way to introduce toddlers and young children to the world of podcasts and audio-first entertainment.

Themes in the podcast, including ‘Are We There Yet’, an episode supporting pre-schoolers on long journeys, and an episode about anger titled ‘Very Big Feelings’, are designed specifically to help families with pre-schoolers recognise and navigate their big emotions.

Aurelie de Troyer, Head of Regional Content Europe at Audible said: “It’s been wonderful collaborating with team at Hasbro to bring Peppa’s first ever podcast to our audiences, on this special anniversary year for the iconic show. Having Peppa behind the mic at Audible’s London studios was an absolute delight.”

Kristin McKay, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Global Brands, Fashion & Preschool at Hasbro said: “For 20 years, Peppa has been the first best friend of children around the globe, inspiring them to confidently jump into all of life’s muddy puddles.

“She’s come to life on screens and in books, along with through engaging toys and live experiences. Now, with Audible, we’re proud to deliver even more ways for fans and families to connect with their favourite piggy with podcasts to bring Peppa wherever they are.”

Peppa Pig’s Play-A-Long Podcast will be exclusively available on Audible from 11 July.
