I received the new Chuggington: Traintastic Adventures DVD for review and giveaway on my dad blog. The latest Anchor Bay’s DVD features six episodes from the Chuggington series, which airs on the Disney Junior channel. The DVD is intended for kids ages three and up. My three-year old toddler thinks the shows are traintastic, and my older kids (ages seven to twelve) like the Chuggington DVD too. In addition to entertaining your little trainees for about an hour, the DVD also includes four Traintastic Adventures trading cards (collect all 22) and a map (fun to look at while you’re watching the episodes). Chuggington: Traintastic Adventures is available now. It has a list price of $14.98. However, you can currently purchase Chuggington: Traintastic Adventures on Amazon for $9.99.
Chuggington: Traintastic Adventures DVD includes six episodes and four bonus features:
The Brewster Booster
In this episode, Brewster tests a new booster (Chug booster). The booster enables Brewster to go super fast. But then the booster malfunctions. Brewster travels dangerously fast and he has trouble slowing down.
Koko’s New Look
Koko and Zephie get their face painted. The two become competitive and want to be the prettiest train. Then they decide to help each other by painting the other train’s face. But each one of them still wants to be prettier so the face painting does not go well. On the other hand, my oldest daughter loved Zephie’s new look. It’s very Halloweenish.
Lights, Camera, Action Chugger
In this episode, Action Chugger is practicing some stunts when his engine malfunctions. Brewster, who idolizes Action Chugger, finds Action Chungger after his accident and helps him get back to the movie set. This is my oldest son’s favorite episode. After seeing this one, but son said he wants to be Action Chugger. I think it’s because Action Chugger is a train that can fly.
Wilson and The Steam Team
The trains decide to play a game of chug-of-war to determine who has to do the dirty work. Harrison and Speedy are the captains of the two teams. Harrison selects diesel engines, while Speedy selects all the steam locomotives. Unfortunately, Speedy’s team doesn’t have enough steam trains so Wilson has to be on Speedy’s team.
Action Chugger trains Brewster and Koko on a useful stunt. Koko catches on quickly, but Brewster has trouble. But by the end of the story, Brewster ends up saving Koko on the movie set.
Hodge and the Chugnav
In this episode, Wilson gets stuck on the track lift. Hodge volunteers to go retreive a part so Eddie the mechanic can fix it. Hodge uses a navigation system (Chugnav) to provide him with directions. All is going well until Chugnav stops working correctly.
In this bonus Badge Quest short, Wilson and Brewster are trying to earn their emergency badge by helping Emery.
There are two short bonus spotlights. One focuses on Action Chugger, and the other one focuses on Hoot and Toot.
Coloring & Activity Sheets
Chuggington: Traintastic Adventures also features some coloring and activity sheets. You’ll need to use your computer’s DVD-ROM drive to view them.
