It's that time of year, everyone! The Holiday shopping season is upon us! (At least it is if you're like me and get an early start to avoid the mad rush of frazzled, last-minute shoppers in December!)
For the 2014 Holiday season, I will be featuring tons of great gift ideas for babies, kids, men, women, pets, and even for the person who has everything. We all have some of those on our gift lists, don't we? There will even be loads and loads of chances to win many of the gifts I am featuring. How cool is that?! You can check out my 2014 Holiday Gift Guide at any time from now till Christmas. Make sure to check often, as it will be growing by the day!
Today, I want to talk about TRAINS! Not just any trains, mind you...I mean one of the most loved locomotives on the planet. If you have small children in your life, chances are, you're already quite familiar with Chuggington!
My kids absolutely adore this cheerful train, as well as all his friends. They even run around singing the Chuggington theme song. It's really cute, but tends to get stuck in my head. One time, I was even caught singing "Chugga-chugga-Chuggington" in the checkout line at the grocery store. The woman who overheard me must be a mom, herself, because she smiled and gave me a knowing wink. (Awkward!)
Anyway, there are some wonderful new Chuggington products available, just in time for the Holiday season! First, I'd like to tell you about the newest DVD installment, "Chuggington Chuggineers: Ready to Build".
About the DVD :
And two brand-new Chuggington characters, Payce, the tunnel runner from Tootington, and Cormac, the cheeky forklift engine, will make their exciting DVD debut in “Chuggineers Ready to Build,” helping Wilson, Brewster, Koko and little trainees at home discover important lessons about safety, responsibility and teamwork!
Among the five episodes is an extended Chuggington special premiering on Disney Junior this fall. And the DVD includes awesome bonus features: a new music video, Badge Quest episode, character montages of Zack and Jackman and Chuggington-themed coloring and activity pages. In addition, for even more “traintastic” fun, young fans will receive a special two-sided ChuggingtonCollector Poster with each DVD!
Time to Build With Chuggington:
Next comes the real fun....A train set! Chuggington fans have plenty of StackTrack Playsets to choose from, and all of them can be linked together to make a truly massive track. (Pretty cool, right?)
Chuggington StackTrack Brewster’s Big Build Adventure Playset
All new to train play, this Chuggington set by TOMY features a working escalator that takes your engines back to the top so you can send them speeding back down again and again. Or take Brewster for a ride on the elevator so he can get to the top to operate the giant crane and repair the broken track. There are so many ways to play. Brewster’s Big Build Adventure Set is based on the Chuggington tentpole episode airing this fall, so it’s sure to keep the excitement going as kids play out their favorite scenes from the show. This set comes with an elevator, an escalator, a working mega crane, a trick bridge, a tunnel, and two Die-Cast engines. It even features 4 levels of elevation and multiple layouts for extended play. Take train play to new heights with the Chuggington StackTrack system!
Sophie and Xander, seen below in their sparkly "Bruno Hats", definitely approve of this latest Chuggington playset. And since it comes with 2 die-cast engines, Brewster and Zack, there's plenty of opportunity for them to play nicely together. (MAJOR brownie point to TOMY for helping to keep the peace among my preschoolers!)
My kids are full of "ooh's" and "ahh's" as they play with this fun set. They love the escalator, and making their train pals get to the top! They also have a load of fun with the "faulty" trick bridge. They pretend that Zack and Brewster are fixing it! Maybe I have a future architect or engineer on my hands!
This set really has everything a little engineer could want. In addition to the bridge and escalator, there's also a crane, an elevator, a tunnel, and of course, those awesome StackTracks! Remember, you can use this and other Chuggington sets to make a one-of-a-kind, massive train track that's sure to keep kids excited and engaged for hours!
Overall, we are definitely impressed by these Chuggington offerings. (No real surprise there, as we're already mega-fans!) If you're looking for a sure-fire way to bring huge smiles to little faces this Holiday season, definitely check them out!
