My Thoughts:

Now we have two Chuggington fans in the house, as Arabella has joined Savannah in not only watching Chuggington episodes, but also signing the catchy theme song.  So, when they saw that I was sent a new Chuggington DVD to review from Anchor Bay Entertainment, they couldn't help but be on the their best behavior, so that they could watch the movie.  When it came time to watching this upcoming DVD, the girls sang the Chuggington theme song as I got the DVD ready to play.  Then, they grabbed their Chuggington trains and nestled in on the couch to watch the episodes that make up this new DVD release.  I told the girls to pay close attention as there would be two new characters introduced -- Chug Patrol Chief Jackman and super-speedy Hanzo.  You should have seen Savannah's eyes get big, as let out an "Ohh" 

As the girls watched the fun filled episodes, I liked listening to Savannah tell Arabella that the two new characters were appearing soon.  And, once they did, she said, "See, I told you so." :-)  This is one animated series that isn't getting old, and always entertaining to watch.  As a parent, I love how this show teaches little ones about team work, the importance of friendship, following the rules, perseverance and working to achieve one's goals.  This animated series is colorful and engaging, and is easy to understand, even for the youngest of viewers.  And, when my girls aren't watching this show on television or on their growing Chuggington DVD collection, they are playing with their Chuggington train set or reading their books about their favorite trainees.  This upcoming DVD from Anchor Bay Entertainment did not disappoint one bit.  And, since receiving a little over a week ago, the girls have already watched it half a dozen times at home and another half a dozen times in the car.  They are not getting bored of it, and I know your Chuggington fans will go crazy for this new release and want to watch it over and over again, too. 



One lucky reader will win a copy of CHUGGINGTON: CHUG PATROL: READY TO RESCUE, as well as a special certificate good for one free MyGym class and $20 off a Lifetime Membership!, thanks to the folks at Anchor Bay Entertainment and MyGym.  To enter,  please complete the entries on the Rafflecopter form below.  Good luck!
