Editorial Reviews

They're trainees!  They're making tracks!  Wheels to the rails! Clackety-clack! Honk your horns for the new worldwide hit television series about eager young engines Wilson, Brewster and Koko as they learn to become working trains in the land of Chuggington. In these six popular episodes, the trainees find fun and excitement as they get lost in a deserted town, handle an important responsibility in the safari park, and discover that the repair shed isn't such a scary place after all. There's plenty of action and laughs along the way with lessons about overcoming fear, responsibility and problem solving, all while discovering social-readiness values like friendship, teamwork, courtesy and more. As the trains, and your own little chuggers, practice their skills and complete daily tasks, they learn to ride the rails of life!

4.0 out of 5 stars Watch Out for That Theme Song... March 6, 2011
Like many of my children's favorite DVDs,, our family first discovered Chuggington on Treehouse. Even though it has clearly been created for the preschool crowd, even my seven-year-old really enjoys the antics of these cheerful, computer-animated trains. Similar to a modern-day Thomas the Tank Engine, this up-to-date train series has a very neat, futuristic train station, curvy streamlined engines, and short episodes that you can use to piece out just a bit of Chuggington at a time, or the whole shebang.

The first Chuggington collection to be released on DVD, Let's Ride the Rails includes six episodes:

Braking Brewster
Clunky Wilson
Can't Catch Koko
Old Puffer Pete's Tour
Koko On Call
Hodge and the Magnet
Each episode is around ten-minutes in length, making for a total running time of 62 minutes.

There are also some coloring pages and activity sheets included on the DVD in pdf form that you can print from your computer, and a fun memory card game that can be played on screen on your television with your remote control.

The Chuggers learn to help each other, be polite, be considerate, apologize to each other, and many other character-skills vital to life. This is great because unfortunately some children's programming does NOT encourage the development of positive character traits in children. This is very naturally integrated into the storylines, and is never overly preachy. My children often ask for Chuggington, it's a very fun series for them to watch and the positive models presented to them certainly add to its appeal to me as a parent.

I have to warn you in advance, Chuggington has one of the most addictive theme songs I've ever heard. If you aren't afraid of finding yourself dancing around the house singing it to yourself throughout the day (ahem), then go ahead and get a copy.

5.0 out of 5 stars We Love Chuggington! February 7, 2011
We have been a fan of Chuggington for a couple of years now and couldn't be happier that they are finally releasing a DVD. We've recorded a number of episodes off of TV onto a recordable DVD, but it will be nice to have a genuine DVD for our kids to watch.

As parents we love Chuggington because they actually treat each other nice. If they do something wrong, they apologize to each other and ask for forgiveness; they don't just say, "I'm sorry" and that's it, but they say what they are sorry for and understand the they shouldn't do it again. It's how we are trying to raise our kids, so it's good for them to see examples of what we expect of them when they do something wrong. There is another train-type show that has been around for many years that we won't allow our kids to watch; they never learn what they did wrong and bring correction or resolution to the situation. That's just not acceptable for our home, how we live and how we are raising our children.

The fact that they quality of the production with awesome graphics is just icing on the cake for us. The character are fun with great personalities and they genuinely care about each other. We would recommend this show to any parent who is looking for good wholesome TV that they don't have to filter before their kids watch it.

5.0 out of 5 stars We Love Chuggington! March 19, 2011
By Lindsey
This DVD was our first introduction to Chuggington, and we love it! My daughter prefers it to Thomas the Train Engine and I have to say I do, too. There's just so much to love about it, from the engaging characters (engines) to the brightly colored 3-D graphics. There's nothing slow or boring, either - it kept my 3-year-old's interest from beginning to end, and she asked me to replay the DVD after it had run through all of the episodes. She's singing the theme song, too - it's so cute! We're thinking about buying some of the Chuggington toy trains now that we've seen this and become attached to the characters.

The lessons learned in each short episode are easily applied to a little one's daily life. For instance, in the first episode, "Braking Brewster", Brewster learns about the importance of listening. He couldn't remember if he was supposed to go downhill slow or fast (with a full load) and finds himself in a scary situation that a friend is able to help him out of safely. The rest of the episodes are the same with everyday skills and lessons that you want your little one to learn introduced in a fun and entertaining way.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great show! April 10, 2011
By AJDunn
We were so excited when Chuggington came out on DVD, however, I didn't realize that there's only 6 episodes and each episode is only about 15 minutes long, so this is shorter than most kids dvds. Also, there are so many great episodes, and most of the kids favorites did not make it onto this dvd. And when watching the show in tv, they have a "Badge Quest" in between each episode, the dvd does not. We DVD the episodes, and actually prefer to watch those instead of the DVD.

Chuggington is a great show though. It is very kid friendly and much easier to watch and understand than the Thomas the Train show. Chuggington teaches values and is really a great show. I enjoy watching it with my kids and would have loved the DVD to be longer and have some of the better episodes. Especially since it took such a long time to come out on DVD.

4.0 out of 5 stars Chuggington:Let's ride April 7, 2011
By MisterD
My four year old graddaughter loves to watch it while we ride in the car. I can see her smiling in my rear view mirror and she often laughs and tells me what she is laughing about. Those moments are worth millions.
