My Thoughts:

I was sent a copy of this DVD to preview with my daughter, and have to say that we are now Chuck and Friends fans.  Having never seen this animated series before, I was not sure how it would be, or if Savannah would even like it.  I think was got us both hooked was the catchy songs that were played throughout the episodes.  After watching this DVD a few times, I have found myself singing along, and even singing tunes in the shower.  You know you are a mom, when you stop singing hit songs and begin singing children's television theme songs, or songs from shows you recently watched with your little ones. :-)

Each of the episodes were fun to watch and very short in length, so my daughter stayed engaged.  I was able to have her sit through 2-3 episodes before she began to walk around and look for something else to do.  Our favorite episode was Dancing Wheels, where Chelsea taught the others a new dance routine.  I was loving this spunky little purple car.  Overall, I found each of these episodes in this new release to be engaging and educational.  Children will learn the importance of friendship, as well as never to give up, when trying to get better at something.  After viewing each episode, parents can talk about the episode and find out what children learned about it.  It is a great teaching tool, and one that will make learning fun.   

Do your child have a favorite Chuck and Friends character?  After viewing this DVD, my daughter is a Chuck and Chelsea fan.  Every time they appear on the television she goes crazy, calling out for them. It is so cute to see her so excited about this entertaining animated series.  And, with Valentine's Day around the corner, why not surprise your little Chuck and Friends fan with this new DVD.   And, don't forget to have your children color their own cover, the bonus feature of this DVD.  Savannah had so much fun coloring with me, that I ended up putting it up on the refrigerator for everyone to see.  Don't forget to print out the Chuck and Friends coloring sheet I have shared below.  As I am typing this, Savannah is working on another masterpiece. :-)
