Pebli Town : Review
A couple of months ago, I heard about Pebli Town, a new interactive toy for young children ideal for children who enjoy playing with tablet computers, I instantly knew I wanted to know more. Both my children have their own tablet computers, of which they are full of educational and fun games, they certainly have been a fantastic great addition to their toys.
Since I heard about Pebli Town I have been eager to get one to try it out with my children, ideal for children aged 3+ it is ideal for Leah and Lewis and play together. So we were delighted when we had this delivered;
Contents of the game include;
- Game Board
- Town Map Board
- Tablet Stand
- 4 Characters – Chef Charlie, Fireman Freddie, Painter Poppy and Doctor Daisy
- 4 Town Buildings – Town Hall, Tree, Supermarket and School
Setting up this game ready for play couldn’t be easier, simply pop 2x AA batteries in the battery compartment of the game board, place the town map on the board and the buildings on the corresponding coloured pegs. To make things easier for me to explain I have done an unboxing and setting up video for you to watch. Here you will see me unboxing our game for the first time and then setting it up with our tablet computer ready for my kids to play.
Unboxing and Setting Up Video
I’d like to point out that this game isn’t compatible with all devices, it appears to be compatible with the most recent Apple Tab and Android devices. A full list of devices can be found on the Pebli homepage but it’s also best to check your app store for app availability. I run a Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 8″ and the The Pebli Town webpage doesn’t state that it works with it but upon checking the app store it was available for my tab to took the plunge to try it out and it works! My kids both run Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 7″ but the app is not available for their tabs.
There are 4 play modes to Pebli Town, plenty of play to keep kids entertained for hours;
- Story Teller Mode – Here your child can listen to 4 different stories, which have 22 different endings. Your child can choose their own route the story takes by placing different characters on the play board.
- Game Player – There are 4 games, Find & Seek, Painter Paths, Cloud Busters and Recipe Racers. Each game is unique to the particular character but other characters can join in. Over the 4 games there are over 100 levels.
- Story Creator – For the most creative of players, your child can creature and record their own stories using the people of Pebli Town and the games record function your children can make their characters talk!
- Video Room – Using the WiFi capabilities of the tablet computer your child can place a specific character on the board to watch videos streamed from YouTube which are specific to that particular character. Arts & Crafts for Painter Poppy, Fire Orientated Cartoons for Fireman Freddie, Cooking Videos/Cartoons for Chef Charlie and Hospital/Doctor/Health Cartoons for Doctor Daisy.
So you can get a better idea of this game in action we have created a second short video showing you the various games in the Game Player mode.

From seeing the videos you will see that Pebli Town has a very catchy theme tune, of which we have been humming for days! This game has really sucked us in, its interactive, engaging and really boosts your child imagination. With an RRP of £59.99 for this starter pack is it a little steep but with other expansion packs on the horizon including Pebli Safari and Pebli Garage we are looking forward to trying these out to add to our collection.
