Peppa Pig among new children’s games
From Peppa Pig to LEGO, there’s a stack of new video games for little kids coming this year.
Young children don’t need to miss out on video game time, with a huge library of new titles, specially designed for small gamers, coming to consoles and PCs.
Half a dozen new games were announced this week, including a new Peppa Pig game where you create your own Peppa Pig character, a PJ Masks game filled with superheroes, and an Addams Family game (we don’t have one). had one for 20 years).
Let’s take a look at this year’s upcoming video games designed for young children:
PJ Masks: Hero of the Night
Fans of PJ Masks can don the costumes, playing the roles of Catboy, Owlette and Gekko.
Players will be able to explore eight different locations of the show.
Fight the bad guys, save the day and search for special collectibles. The controllers were specially designed for small people.

While there are a few Peppa Pig games out there already, mostly on Apple devices, this is the first of its kind to come to console.
In My Friend Peppa Pig, players will be able to create their own animal to play with Peppa and her friends.
There will be plenty of activities to do along the way, from jumping in muddy puddles to exploring Potato City.
My friend Peppa Pig is coming to PlayStation, Xbox, Nintendo Switch, and PC later this year.

We haven’t had an Addams Family console game since 2001 – so this game has been a long time coming.

Following the success of Ring Fit Adventure, Family Trainer is the latest exergaming title and, as the name suggests, it is family-friendly.
