Join Me in Celebrating Chuggington Fire Patrol Rescue Day TODAY with a DVD Review, Fun Coloring Sheet, Fire Safety Tips and More...

Disclosure:  I was sent a review copy from the vendor in order to write up an honest review.  All views shared are mine and mine alone.

Buy now on DVD from Amazon for only $9.96 -- includes limited edition toy train!
My girls keep asking me if April is here yet, as they can't wait to do another sleepover at Nana and Papa's house, and take in the upcoming Chuggington Live tour stopping by Lowell Auditorium.  I know they will be excited when I tell them at tomorrow is April 1st and that soon enough they will be packing their Chuggington suitcases with their favorite Chuggington clothes for an overnight stay and show.  :-)
But, while they wait for their show date to arrive, I have been keeping them busy and letting them get their Chuggington fix with the new DVD, "Chuggington Fire Patrol Rescue," which arrives on DVD today from Anchor Bay Entertainment.  Included on this new release are the following already aired television episodes:
  • Blazin’ Wilson,
  • Round Up Wilson
  • High Rise Rescue
  • Park Patroller Wilson
  • Stop the Press Emery
  • Scrub a Chug
  • The bonus section includes Badge Quest Episode: Who Do You Appreciate, along with Calley and Skylar Character Montages and fun coloring and activity pages you can download and printout.
We were sent the limited edition DVD with toy train for review, and the girls went crazy for it. In addition to the DVD and train, there was also other fun goodies for the girls, to help celebrate "Chuggington Fire Patrol Rescue Day," including a Fireman's hat, tattoos and stickers.  While I knew the girls were excited about all the fun goodies and toy train, I knew that they also couldn't wait to watch the full-length episodes on this new DVD.  

So, after their lunch and nap, I put this DVD on to watch, the other day.  As I sat down to watch the episodes with them, I couldn't help but smile -- not only because the girls were having a blast watching one of their favorite shows, but also because I could see that they were learning important life lessons, like teamwork, friendship and perseverance.  

At only 62 minutes in length, this new DVD release is perfect to watch in one sitting, or to break up and enjoy 1 or 2 different episodes of the 6 found on the DVD, to get your Chuggington fix.  We have only had this DVD for about a week, and have already watched it a handful of times at home and in the car.  And, with Easter fast approaching this would make for a great Easter basket filler for that special little Chugger in your life. :-)

More about this new release:
"In this latest collection of Chuggington adventures, Wilson sets out on fire patrol duty with his new friend Asher and learns to use a fire hose in a rescue! Also, there is a friendly contest of Chug Patrol versus Speed Fleet; Hodge find himself in a high-rise jam; and all the Chuggers practice emergency drills at the roundhouse. In these 6 exciting episodes – plus New Chugger Spotlights, a Bonus Badge Quest Episode, and coloring sheets – Wilson, Asher, Brewster and the others discover the importance of community service and working together."


In honor of Chuggington Fire Patrol Rescue Day,” and to help keep your family and young trainees safe all year-round, here are some important tips from Firechugger Asher and the National Fire Protection Association:

·         Asher says, “Plan ahead!
Create a home escape plan so every member of your family knows what to do and where to go if there’s a fire. Designate a meeting spot, such as a tree or mailbox, that’s a safe distance from the home. And practice your home fire drill both at night and during the day.

·         Asher says, “Stop a fire before it starts!”
Keep matches and lighters out of sight and out of reach from children. Store them up high, preferably in a locked cabinet or drawer. It’s also important to teach kids that lighters and matches are tools for adults only and that they should tell a grown-up if they see these items lying around.

·         Asher says, “Cool it in the kitchen!”
Always keep an eye on the stove while you’re cooking, and use a timer as a reminder that the stove or oven is on. Create a “kid-free zone” around the stove as well as areas where hot food and drinks are prepared. And make sure to keep anything that can catch fire, including oven mitts and towels, away from hot appliances!

·         Asher says, “Sound the alarm! “
Smoke detectors are a key part of a home fire escape plan. Make sure to install smoke detectors on every floor of the home, especially inside and outside bedrooms. Don’t forget to test all smoke alarms at least once a month!

·         Asher says, “Stay low and stay out! “
If, during a fire, you have to escape through smoke, get low, go under the smoke and close the doors behind you as you leave each room. It’s crucial to remind children that, once outside, they should never go back inside for anything, including pets or toys. It’s best to wait to call the fire department until you get outside and are a safe distance away from the fire.

Asher says, “Follow these blazin’ safety tips and you’ll be in control and ready to roll if there’s ever a fire.”
