The three trains are "trainees" -- basically trains in training -- who attend classes in the town of Chuggington, surrounded by many other characters of various ages with whom they interact, facing challenges and learning valuable lessons. You know, the usual kids' show stuff.
I'm not sure why my boy prefers Chuggington over Thomas, but I'm going to speculate. First, Chuggington's three lead characters seem to be quite "young" -- they have the voices and personalities of children of 7 or so. Second, the setting of Chuggington is sunny and always full of very bright colors. Third, the trains all look much more distinct and are generally more colorful than the trains in Thomas. Fourth, the faces of the trains are not "pasted on" to the front of locomotives, as they are in Thomas cartoons; they are a fully integrated part of the train. Think of the cars in Cars. And I think the faces of the Chuggington trains are less scary than some of the angry faces the Thomas trains can occasionally have. My son finds the episodes exciting and emotionally involving. And he absolutely adores the upbeat theme song. Which is a good thing, because the full intro and end credits are included in these episodes, so if you watch the entire thing, you'll hear the theme 12 times.
Whatever the reasons, my boy cannot get enough of the Chuggington stories.Read more ›
