Chugga chugga….chugga chugga….choo choo!!! We absolutely LOVE Chuggington in our home!  The boys love the colors and identifying the engines by name.  I enjoy the music and the quality of the shows and am happy to represent Chuggington as a Conductor in the blogging world!  We were excited to have the opportunity to check out Chuggington: Chuggers To The Rescue, when it was released on DVD from Anchor Bay Entertainment on April 5, 2011.  The DVD is available for purchase online and in stores, retailing for $16.98.


Honk your horns!  “Chuggington,” the preschool sensation from Ludorum, heads out of the station and into the homes of families across the country with a brand new DVD – Chuggers To The Rescue.

A worldwide television hit and an exciting destination for preschoolers, “Chuggington” follows the humorous adventures of ‘traintastic’ pals, Wilson, Brewster and Koko as they ‘ride the rails’ of life on their way to becoming productive chuggers.  Featuring a dynamic fleet of relatable and diverse characters, each engaging episode is filled with positive life lessons that encourage and promote early social skills.  The colorful and contemporary CGI-animated TV series airs daily on Playhouse Disney, Disney Channel’s learning-focused programming block.

“‘Chuggington’ is a fantastic ‘ride’ for young children and we are thrilled to offer this second DVD in the series,” said Julie Cartwright, SVP of Brand Marketing for Anchor Bay Entertainment.  “Chuggers To The Rescue is an upbeat and vibrant collection of engaging episodes and a wonderful addition to any family DVD library; it is sure to delight preschool ‘trainees’ and families nationwide.”

“Chuggers To The Rescue captures all of the fun and positive messages that ‘Chuggington’ delivers throughout the series and reinforces lessons preschoolers are learning every day,” said Maureen Taxter, SVP U.S. Consumer Products, Ludorum.

In Chuggers To The Rescue, everyone’s favorite trainee trio is set to save the day in six horn-tooting episodes that deliver action and laughter, while teaching viewers gentle lessons about emergency preparedness and responsibility.

Through their exciting adventures and daring escapades, complete with jetpacks and storm machines, Wilson, Brewster and Koko help one another out of jams, learn emergency rescue skills and take on new responsibilities, while they – and young trainees at home – learn about patience, accountability, following instructions and how to get the job done!  The action-packed DVD features appearances from special “Chuggington” friends, Calley, Dunbar, Zephie and Mtambo.

Chuggers To The Rescue follows closely on the tracks of Anchor Bay Entertainment’s first “Chuggington” DVD release, Let’s Ride The Rails.  Additional releases in the “Chuggington” DVD series from Anchor Bay Entertainment are headed to retail in 2011, including It’s Training Time and Wheels To The Rails.  “Chuggington” episodes also are available on iTunes.

“Chuggington” also has a fun and immersive website to keep young viewers ‘on track’ at www.chuggington.com.

Since its September 2008 debut in the U.K., “Chuggington” has quickly becomes a global sensation. The show has been licensed to more than 175 territories worldwide and has established a highly successful ratings record in several key international markets, including the U.K., Germany, France and Australia.  The series made its stateside debut on Playhouse Disney in January 2010.  The channel has acquired all U.S. television rights to the property for a second season that will begin airing in 2011.  Disney Channel is currently available on basic cable in more than 99 million U.S. homes.

My boys and I really enjoyed watching and interacting with Chuggington To The Rescue on DVD!  The boys are so cute – whenever we watch “Chuggington,” they each hold one of the Chuggington engines and point it out whenever it shows up during the show.  We look forward to the upcoming “Chuggington” DVDs!  A big thanks to the Chuggington Team and Anchor Bay Entertainment for this review and giveaway opportunity.
