Published on: 4th May 2022

The pre-school porcine favourite joins the Yoto audio-player line-up thanks to a collaboration with Penguin Audio. 

Yoto, the audio platform for kids behind the critically acclaimed, award-winning screen-free Yoto Player and recently launched Yoto Mini, has collaborated with Penguin Audio to bring Peppa Pig titles to its ever-expanding audio library.

In a first for the platform, children will soon be able to immerse themselves into the world of Peppa, with two short story collections – At Home with Peppa and Peppa Pig: Bedtime Stories – providing over an hour of exciting tales.

At Home with Peppa invites listeners to join Peppa as she embarks on a range of activities and adventures. The assortment of 10 short stories includes: Babysitting, Bubbles, Foggy Day, George’s Friend, Lunch, Painting, Pedro’s Cough, The Long Grass, The Powercut and The Quarrel.

Peppa Pig: Bedtime Stories aims to create a relaxing environment for children before bedtime, and includes dialogue, songs and sound effects from the hit show. The collection of 10 stories features a variety of tales, including: Bedtime Story, Night Animals, The Wishing Well, Teddy’s Playgroup, Pet Competition, Mrs Rabbit’s Bump, Naughty Tortoise, The Rainy Day Game, Madam Gazelle’s Leaving Party and Freddy Fox.

Ben Drury, CEO and founder of Yoto, said: “The arrival of Peppa Pig to the Yoto library is very exciting. Peppa and her friends have been a part of children’s lives for the past 18 years. The character has helped to shape young minds and, aligning perfectly with the values of Yoto, encouraged them to learn and explore whilst having fun. These two new collections are certain to entertain and inspire imagination, independence and creativity for those aged 0-5. We are pleased to continue our partnership with Penguin Random House and Ladybird Books, providing a variety of stories for all ages.”
