Dove.org, the long-trusted source for family-friendly media reviews, reports: “Now this is what good children’s entertainment is about! The stories are terrific, the characters are delightful, and the animation is awesome!”
The best thing about Chuggington besides the colorful CGI animation is how well it is shot and the amazing real sounds. Lots of metal on metal, chugging, banging and whistling train sounds. These are great shows for ages 2-6. There is so much movement that will keep children focused on the show and hopefully teach them great life lessons about team work, learning patience, work ethic, respect, and more. Definitely a great show for boys and girls.
