Jumbo is releasing five fresh iPieces games this year including a licensed Peppa Pig product.

Others include Fireman Sam, Ludo, Pool and Stratego. These will all go on sale in the autumn/winter period in time for Christmas, with prices starting from £9.99.

Amazon is already listing the Peppa Pig iPieces game with a £12.99 price tag and an August 1st release date. 

Jumbo first launched its iPieces products last year. They allow users to play with real figures or pawns on the iPad. 

Other iPieces games include Air Hockey, Fishing Game, Snakes & Ladders and Game of Goose, which will be available through Amazon, Play, WHSmith, Tesco, Toys R Us, John Lewis, Next and Asda. Last month iPieces launched in Menkind and Carphone Warehouse.

Gray Richmond, MD of Jumbo Games, said: “The response to iPieces since winning three awards has been overwhelming, so we were keen to extend the portfolio and offer our customers even more games to enjoy.

“We’re really thrilled with the latest additions, which offer something for everyone in the family. Games such as Ludo, Stratego and Pool will enable us to target the slightly older pre-teen and adult market, whilst Peppa Pig and Fireman Sam will be the first in our range of licensed iPieces for younger children.”

iPieces has since picked up several awards, including a Top 5 Gadget Show Live Kids Gadget award at the Toy Fair 2012, and a Best Family App in the Loved By Parents Awards.
