You thought you will never get past having “The Elmo Song” on repeat because of your toddler, but you did. Until now, “Baby Shark” still hasn’t really lost its charm. If your kids love Peppa Pig so much (we bet they do!), ready your ears. The beloved character just released a whole album online.
Yes, you read that right. Peppa Pig’s first album, aptly entitled simply as “My First Album” has 16 tracks, including your little one’s all-time favorites such as the “Bing Bong Song,” “The Class of Madame Gazelle,” and “Peppa’s Party Time.” There are also new tracks that are just as catchy. Harley Bird, the 17-year-old who has been voicing Peppa Pig on the show for 13 years lent her voice to the album as well.
Apart from her award-winning TV show, Peppa Pig has been in movies and stage shows. She has her own Youtube Channel, games and toys, and even a theme park in England. Having her own album seems just about right. It’s everywhere, too! You can listen to it online via Apple Music (or download in on iTunes), Spotify, Amazon Music, YouTube Music, Google Play, Deezer and even Tidal.
Peppa Pig’s album release is part of the show’s 15th anniversary celebration. It debuted in the U.K. and Australia in 2004 and has expanded its reach, thanks to the kiddie cable channel Nick Jr., in more than 180 countries, including the Philippines.
The show, which is about a 4-year-old pig sharing her adventures with her little brother George, Mommy Pig, Daddy Pig, and many animal friends (as if you didn’t know), is easily a top favorite show for young kids, thanks to its fun, light-hearted, and very relatable content. She faces similar issues to any other kids her age, like making friends, visiting grandparents, or teasing siblings.

It is not without controversy, like when some people called out Peppa Pig for calling her dad fat, but it has learned to evolve through the times. In April this year, the show introduced a new and recurring character named Mandy Mouse, who uses a wheelchair.
It’s safe to say that the Peppa Pig craze among young children is here to stay. You might as well cue her album on your playlist, and it may come in handy during heavy traffic and long drives. You might even find yourself humming to the tunes, if you need a little pick-me-upper.
