 PRESCHOOLERS FROM COAST-TO-COAST GET SET FOR FUN-FUELED ADVENTURES WITH NEW CHUGGINGTON™ DVD –
‘DELIVERY DASH AT THE DOCKS’



Latest Title in Popular Chuggington DVD Collection from Anchor Bay Entertainment Includes Collectible Daley Toy Train from TOMY!

Even though my girls are getting older and moving onto more "big girl" type shows and movies, one of the first animated series they watched as toddlers continues to be a favorite among the two of them -- Chuggington.  Do you have a Chuggington fan in your life?  If so, then you have probably sat and watched a few episodes (probably more) of this cute series, which follows three chuggers in training, Brewster, Koko, and Wilson, as they learn the ropes on how to be Chuggers in Chuggington, all while learning lessons along the way including the important of friendship, teamwork, and never giving up.

So, when my girls saw the new Chuggington DVD (with toy engine) arrive at our doorstep, they were over the moon excited and couldn't wait to watch it.  Thankfully because we have so many Chuggington chuggers, they didn't fight over who would get the new special Daley collectible toy train, which is included in specially marked boxes.  Instead, like the chuggers in training, they shared and played together with the new toy, as they settled in on the couch to watch this new release.

Here is more about the release, Chuggington "Delivery Dash at the Docks" in case you didn't know about it...

With Easter fast approaching...yes, it is in March this year, this DVD would make for a great basket stuffer for that special Chuggington fan in you life...that is, if you can keep if from them until Easter.  I know I wouldn't be able to do, as I know just how much my girls love Chuggington and love every opportunity to snuggle with them on the couch and watch their shows with them.  They get so excited and animated as they watch the shows and will talk your ear off for days later about their favorite parts, or ask when they can watch again. :-)

This new release does a great job in teaching little ones about being a good friend, helping those in need and team work.  From start to finish, both of my girls stayed engaged and loved every minute of this new Chuggington DVD.  They loved seeing Koko working with Daley, Chuggington's newest express engine.  Bella was excited to see Skipper Stu on this DVD as she likes the name and giggles every time she sees this new Dock Master to Chuggington station.

Both of my girls highly recommend this new DVD release, as when asked, they gave two big thumbs up, as they grinned from ear to ear.  So, it's a winner in our house, and will be in yours, too!
