By non-fans of the series, the crying is normally classified as being very annoying and infrequent, and mildly annoying at best by some fans. The toddlers are called crybabies as a result of this, and seems by most to cry for no reason. However, George and other toddlers are only two years old, and crying is one of the only ways a toddler can communicate at that age and is for most-part, realistic. Unusually, Peppa is four years old, but big kids can only cry if something really bad happens (such as losing her golden boots) Regardless, Peppa Pig haters thinks it teaches kids how to cry for no entire reason.
