Move Over Thomas! Here Comes Chuggington

Saturday, February 5th, 2011

Chuggington.jpgThomas & Friends has garnered the “train” genre of the preschool media market for ever since it was first¬†broadcast in 1984. But now, we’ve got a new series, Chuggington, which offers a bit more upbeat pace, fun & bright colors, and easy to understand messaging. Many of our jurors have switched their focus to the “new kid on the block” which they feel is more suitable for 21st century kids.

This first DVD of the TV series offers 6 episodes: Braking Brewster, Clunky Wilson, Can’t Catch Koko, Old Puffer Pete’s Tour, Koko on Call and Hodge and the Magnet. I encourage you to try it, if you haven’t seen it yet. In particular, we found that girls preferred it over Thomas. But really, girls or boys, I think you won’t be disappointed.
