A toddler who could die if she gets overexcited was nearly killed after having too much fun at Peppa Pig World.
Little Lola Sheldon is only three years old but doesn't lead a normal life, because of a rare genetic condition that left her with epilepsy and slows down her development.
Mum and dad Carly Whing and Luke Sheldon, both 27, are careful to not let the tot get too excited as it can trigger life-threatening seizures.
The family had a frightening reminder when Lola was taken to hospital after having too much fun at Peppa Pig World where she celebrated her third birthday.
She suffered hours of epileptic fits and had to spend several days in hospital after a visit to the children's theme park in Romsey, Hampshire in August last year.
On another occasion, Lola was left in intensive care after suffering a seizure.
The toddler's life-threatening condition means her parents have to manage her excitement and keep her as calm as possible.

Mum Carly, a full-time carer for Lola said: "We've come to terms with the fact that Lola's trigger is having too much fun.
"But it is really hard having to intervene when she's enjoying herself.
"It's just heartbreaking to see your daughter having a great time only to worry she will end up in hospital if she gets too excited."
The tot's seizures happen because her brain is over-stimulated by what is going and excitement can be too much for her to take.
Carly added: "Her seizures tend to happen when there's a lot going on around her. “She overstimulates her brain from having too much fun and then she has a seizure.
"We took her to Peppa Pig World for her birthday last year and she had a great day going on all of the rides but then we went home and she had a really bad seizure.

"It's very scary. We can be sat in the emergency department for hours whilst they put loads of drugs in her to try and make the seizures stop.
"There's always a chance that she could stop breathing when she is fitting and that she could die from the seizures. It's really quite frightening."
