Arriving Just in Time for the Holidays -- Chuggington DVD "The Big Freeze" Releases October 13! -- Review and #Giveaway

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


Super-Sized Release from Anchor Bay Entertainment, Featuring Never-Before-Seen Holiday Special, to Warm Hearts All Winter Long

My girls love tuning in to watch Chuggington on television, but have not helped me review a DVD in some time.  So, they were super excited when they saw "The Big Freeze," which arrives on DVD on October 13th, arrive at our door step.  They couldn't wait to watch this DVD, and were on their best behavior in hopes to watch it the same day we got in the mail. :-)  

This new Chuggington DVD from Anchor Bay Entertainment included six fun-filled adventures – one of which is a never before seen holiday special episode.  While my girls loved the five other full-length episode, their favorite hands down was the holiday one.  I have lost count on how many times they have watched it, since we received this DVD for review.  And, I have to say, after watching this episode, it really does get you excited about the upcoming holiday season.  If my girls could, they would skip right over Halloween and Thanksgiving and get right to Christmas. :-)  

If you have a Chuggington fan in your life, this is one DVD you'll have to pick up to add to their growing Chuggington DVD collection.  Or, why not pick up a copy when it arrives on DVD on October 13th and add to their stocking. Either way, your little Chuggington fan will have a blast watching all 6 episodes - over and over again, just like my girls have been enjoying this upcoming release.
