We all have our favorite TV shows from when we were kids – those special shows that we would always want to watch or would even wake up early to do so. The Chuggington series is just that sort of show for your young kiddies.
A colorful and contemporary CGI-animated TV series from Ludorum that encourages early social readiness skills, “Chuggington” follows the amusing escapades of three young trainees, Wilson, Brewster and Koko, as they learn to “ride the rails” of life and become productive chuggers.
In “The Chugger Championship,” the traintastic trio is ready to put their “wheels to the rails” for the biggest race in Chuggington! These six, action-packed adventures will have the whole family cheering. Young fans join Wilson, Brewster and Koko as they prepare for a test, invent a new contest and pick up a fun hobby, while learning about the importance of accountability and responsibility. Along the way, the three friends – and viewers at home – discover that a true champion isn’t always the one who finishes first!
Thanks to WiC Chick Abby, we had the perfect reviewers for the latest in the Chuggington DVD series – her two boys, aged 3 and 1 1/2.
When we got this in the mail my boys were so excited! They ran for their box of toy trains and each boy with a train firmly gripped in each hand, assumed their position on the floor in front of the TV.
Instead of one 90 minute movie, the DVD is broken up into shorter 10 minute episodes, keeping kids engaged and interested in the DVD. Each Chuggington episode has its own story line that gently teaches kids important lessons and values.
I like that the Chuggers are polite and learning good lessons as they go, hopefully in turn teaching and encouraging my kids to do the same.
The show is colorfully animated, with bright and cheerful characters and a very catchy theme song. With the bits of humor and the subtle lessons, this is one show that you won’t mind watching with the kids.
I think one of the truest testimonies to whether a child enjoyed a DVD is if they remember it the next day. Abby’s 3 year old really took to the characters and storyline and now use them during his playtime.
He will set up his wooden train set and his trains become the characters re-enacting similar scenarios that he has seen in the Chuggington DVD.
Overall, Abby was very happy with “The Chugger Championship” and the quality of entertainment it provides for her kids.
