Meet Mandy Mouse, Peppa Pig’s New Friend In A Wheelchair

April 16, 2019

Same Difference has just found out about Mandy Mouse, Peppa Pig’s new friend in a wheelchair.


We are thrilled that she’s been included in the smash hit programme. Children who learn about difference from an early age grow into sensitive, understanding adults who learn how to show empathy, not unnecessary sympathy or pity. They learn how to make everyone feel wanted and truly welcomed, everywhere.


We are even more thrilled to see this simple introduction to Mandy Mouse, in which she simply squeaks hello and no one mentions her wheelchair. If only we could all have such an introduction on our first day at mainstream school!

We thank the team at Peppa Pig for creating Mandy Mouse, and hope that she continues to be used to represent disability positively.
