So, I finally made the effort to take Ernie to Peppa Pig World at Paultons Family Theme Park - and it didn't disappoint.
I say made the effort, as it's quite a trek from where I live, but we had an opportunity to stay in Dorchester for a few nights - so decided to do it.
It's situated on the edge of the New Forest National Park - which is a really beautiful place to visit. So if you've got the time, you could make a bigger trip out of it.
There are lots of lovely things to do in the surrounding area - and really we could have done with spacing it out over two days - as I found it hard with a child of Ernie's age to fit it all into one day - he didn't quite have the patience (to queue) or the energy.
I've just seen here that they've introduced glamping, in a fully equipped bell tent, which would be an excellent way to extend your stay.
Paultons is easy to find being just off exit 2 of the M27. It's well signposted by brown tourist signs along the motorway.
My favourite part of the whole experience was Mr Potatoes Playground. It's really sweet, and a great place for under twos.
It's worth familiarising yourself with the map online before you get there, so you have an idea of what you'd like to prioritise.
Or do what we did and just head for the rides with the shortest queues!
On that note, here's my top tips for Peppa Pig World...
* Keep all your valuables in an easy to carry bag, as you'll have to ditch your buggy for most of the rides.
* If you can bring a picnic, there are lots of nice spots throughout the park to enjoy it.
* Bring swimwear, swimming nappies, and towels for your little ones, so that they can enjoy the muddy puddle fountains in Mr Potatoes Playground.
* Pack socks for everyone - for inside George's Spaceship Playzone.
* Get there as early as you can, so that you've got time to see the rest of Paultons - theres a beautiful river walk, lots of exotic birds, penguins, and meerkats to see too.
*Cream your kids beforehand, with plenty of SPF, it's hard to pin them down once you get there!
* If you want to avoid buying anything in the gift shop, bring a handful of the Peppa stuff you already own to distract them with.
* And beware that theres no way of completely avoiding said gift shop - you're forced to exit through a pretty amazing one.
* On the flip side, if you're in the market for some new toys, this is a awesome place to shop.
* Children under a meter get in for free, so you might want to capitalise on this before it's too late - and ditch any adults who aren't that bothered - as they'll bump up the price considerably.
* Tickets are cheaper online in advance, and cut down on queuing.
