So since he loves trains, it's not surprising that Chuggington is one of his favorite characters on television. Even though he's not in preschool anymore, Ashton loves shows like Chugginton and can sit still during an entire episode, which is rare for a 6 year old! So when we received a new Chuggington DVD, I just couldn't get it out of the packaging fast enough for him!
What is Chuggington?
According to their website, "Chugginton is an exciting, train-based animation TV series for preschoolers. Each episode has entertainment and enjoyment at it's heart, but embedded within each story are also positive life lessons that will promote social readiness skills."
"Follow the humorous adventures of three young trainees Wilson, Brewster, and Koko - as they learn to ride the rails of life. During their adventures, they interact with a host of railway friends, from the oldest puffing steam engine to the latest sleek bullet train, all who guide and encourage the trainees as they sharpen their skills."
Chuggington is more than just an enjoyable television program for preschoolers, it's also a great educational resource for preschoolers!
We received a copy of Chuggington Brewster's Little Helper DVD for review. According to the back of the DVD, "Honk your horns for this all-new collection showcasing young trainee, Brewster, as he discovers adventure and responsibility in Chuggington. In these six traintastic episodes, Brewster gets some unexpected help from Zephie, cleans up a mess in the recycling yard with Koko, does a sign-reading exercise with pal Wilson, and even meets his hero Action Chugger! Together Brewster and his friends learn valuable lessons about friendship, patience, following instructions and completing daily tasks. Join the trainees as they ride the rails of life in Brewster's Little Helper!"
Ashton really loved this DVD and we caught him giggling quite a few times. His favorite episode would have to be Koko takes charge and he actually asked us to show him how to recycle after the episode was over. I really love when he takes the lessons he learned from Chuggington and uses them in his everyday life. I highly recommend this and all of the Chuggington DVDs for anyone that has or works with preschoolers or young children.
