As my girls get older, I do find myself occasionally missing certain things from "simpler times" that weren't all too long ago. One of those things is Chuggington, a series I'd written much about a few years back - a hit from UK-based Ludorum that had been airing here in the States on Disney Junior before quietly building more of a YouTube presence. Now comes news that Ludorum has sold the popular franchise, and the Chuggers have rolled into a new station right here in the States with Herschend Entertainment Studios taking ownership.
With today's release of Chuggington Fire Patrol Rescue on DVD (complete with a new TOMY Diecast Toy), the folks at Ludorum and Anchor Bay Entertainment have declared this to be Chuggington Fire Patrol Rescue Day, a prime opportunity to educate kids and remind families of the importance of fire safety and having a plan. In this new collection of Chuggington adventures, children are introduced to Asher, a "Firechugger" who brings a new element of excitement to Wilson and the gang. If my own adventure as a parent (nearly six years in already) has taught me anything, it's that kids love trains and firetrucks... and Fire Patrol Rescue puts those two together seamlessly.
Grab your little Chuggineers! CHUGGINGTON: TURBO CHARGED CHUGGER is coming to DVD on February 10, 2015 and THE ROCK FATHER and Anchor Bay Entertainment are giving readers a chance to win! Featuring six turbo-charged episodes, plus a special free custom activity book with colorful stickers from Bendon Publishing, the latest traintastic CHUGGINGTON DVD is just the ticket for Valentine’s Day fun for preschoolers from coast to coast! Currently airing it's fourth season on Disney Junior, Ludorum's CHUGGINGTON helps reinforce social readiness skills for preschoolers, and has become a Global hit with families.
As a member of the Netflix #StreamTeam, I generally present you with at least one monthly column that aims to enhance the Netflix experience around a central theme. For my exceptionally late January edition, I'm changing things up and handing it over to my girls - The Rock Daughters. Curious what they've been streaming over the past month? The "Recently Watched" function doesn't lie. Here's some highlights on what's big at our house right now, along with a preview of one anticipated show that's yet to come.
