In an exciting development for preschool entertainment, the LEGO Group, Hasbro, and Merlin Entertainments have announced a unique partnership to celebrate the 20th anniversary of PEPPA PIG. This collaboration aims to introduce PEPPA PIG, a character beloved by toddlers worldwide, in LEGO® DUPLO® form, marking a significant milestone in children's entertainment.
The announcement comes as a delightful blend of creativity and childhood fun, with PEPPA PIG set to be immortalized in LEGO DUPLO sets. Known for her adorable snorts, infectious giggles, and love for jumping in muddy puddles, PEPPA PIG has been a staple in the lives of many children. The collaboration promises to offer new experiences and ways for preschoolers to engage with this cherished character.
Roberta Cardazzo, Design Manager at the LEGO Group, expressed the excitement surrounding this partnership. “PEPPA PIG’s global popularity made it a natural choice for us.

This includes the world's only LEGO DUPLO PEPPA PIG area at LEGOLAND® Billund and the new PEPPA PIG Park in Gunzburg, adjacent to LEGOLAND® Deutschland Park. These attractions aim to recreate iconic scenes and characters from the TV show, offering real-life PEPPA adventures.
