My preschoolers, Sophie and Xander, really love trains. We live in a very small town in North-East Ohio, and there are railroad tracks a few blocks from our house. When the trains come through, my little ones squeal and clap, and they swear that Chuggington and his locomotive pals have come by to say hello to them. It's really stinkin' cute to see their faces light up when we hear the train-whistles blowing.
Earlier this month, a brand new Chuggington DVD was released. In "Chuggington: Explorer Koko", little engineers will have a blast watching Chuggington and his friends on their many adventures. There is plenty of action and problems to solve, but teamwork and friendship always prevail. (I love that this show teaches positive values!)
In “Explorer Koko” ($14.98), everyone’s best friend Koko is chosen to carry the King of Buffertonia and his dignitaries on a special tour of Chuggington. The new release also follows Koko as she gets hooked on a computer game trying to beat Hodge’s high score and finds herself in a heap of trouble when her net shooter fails on the tracks! In these six fast-paced and fun-filled episodes, Brewster, Wilson and Koko discover the importance of teamwork, leadership and more. The new DVD also comes complete with Chugger Spotlights, a bonus Badge Quest Episode and adorable coloring sheets!
