One bright sunny day, everyone is playing outside. Candy and Pedro are on the flaming frame, while Danny, Suzy, and Rebecca play on the slide, and Peppa is on the swing. She asks Mummy Pig to push her and claims she wants to go really high, and keeps asking to be pushed higher. But she gets off when George wants on, then offers to push him. Mummy Pig warns her to push George gently, but when she doesn't; he ends up bursting in tears until Mummy Pig picks him up.
