Folk artists make Peppa Pig toys out of dough for the Year of the Pig

Two Chinese folk artists made adorable mini Peppa Pigs out of dough for the Year of the Pig.

The video, filmed in Xuzhou City in eastern Jiangsu Province on February 1, shows a variety of mini pig toys attached to sticks being shown on display tables, while two women can be seen using dough to make new ones.

According to reports, the toy is called Mian Su which is a traditional folk art in China.

Mian Su uses dough as the main material, which can be made into different colours. Artists use their hands and some simple tools to mould the dough into different shapes.
