Mr Lion (Colin MacFarlane) is a lion that works in England with the others. One day, he gets a plan where he goals to steal a large magnet from a workplace and suck up childrens' toys from Peppa's land into the magnet. He successfully manages to do it a day later.
In the homeland of Peppa's, a bunch of children are playing with their toys on the playground until a large magnet comes and sucks up the toys from everyone including shops, causing the children to chase after the magnet from the playground to the beach, but they fail miserably. The next day, Peppa and her family are watching The Mr Potato Show until a breaking news reports comes on where two policemen (Panda & Hamster) report about a mysterious person stealing toys with a magnet. They also say that they will recruit Miss Rabbit and the playgroup children to track down the toys. After the news report, Daddy Pig drives Peppa & George, along with other families to the playgroup to see Miss Rabbit and the policemen.
Madame Gazelle, Miss Rabbit and the policemen tell all the children about a mysterious person stealing toys from their homeland with a magnet. The children then follow Miss Rabbit to her large helicopter with Policemen Panda & Hamster coming along in their vehicle. This causes the parents & other citizens of the town to come & see Miss Rabbit flying away with the children in her large helicopter, along with Policemen Panda & Hamster coming along to track down the toys.
Meanwhile, in England, Mr Lion is in his house seeing all the stolen toys that he put into a cage. This makes him saying that no one is allowed to steal the toys whenever he's gone. He then goes out of his house and into his car.
Miss Rabbit, the children, & Policemen Panda and Hamster finally manage to get to England to find Mr Lion's house and get back the missing toys, but their engines go low and crash into the ground safely. A tow truck then comes and picks up the said citizens to get their oil back at a gas station in town. After hovering up to the ground, they get back to flying and tracking down Mr Lion's house.
Edmond Elephant tells Miss Rabbit that he spotted Mr Lion's house, which also has a ladder that can go up and climb into any window. They finally land at Mr Lion's house and use the ladder to climb up into his bedroom.
Miss Rabbit & the children successfully manage to find the cage, and get off the ladder from his window, but Mr Lion finds this out and catches back the trio in his magnet. The guys travel through England while being caught by Mr Lion, saying that he saw the said people on one of the survilleance cameras. The oil in Miss Rabbit's helicopter runs out, but they are rescued by the police in a net and stop in the middle of the England square. The police then see Mr Lion in his large magnet and he gets out of it. After a speech from the trio, he is arrested & taken to jail.
The trio get back home to Peppa's land, and they see their parents and the citizens noticing the children's toys in the helicopter's window. They land safely down and talk to the citizens about the story of the stolen toys. A few days later, the children & Miss Rabbit put back all the toys into the shops and into their homes, and the policemen go back to their station. A day later at night, the children then go into their beds and sleep with their toys.
In a mid-credits scene, Mr Lion is still in jail and asking the viewer to get him out.
