Since my 6-year-old can't get enough Chuggington, I've become quite well acquainted with all the 10-minute shorts about the Trainees and the other Chuggers that populate the sunny, colorful town of Chuggington. The best description of this DVD is: It's exactly in keeping with the past DVDs. Which is great, as far as I'm concerned, because these shorts are cheerful, sometimes witty (even to adults), and mercifully short. And, importantly, they teach good values without ever being preachy or heavy-handed. My son gets quite involved in them, to the point where he won't watch certain episodes sometimes because they are a bit emotional for him. There's certainly nothing scary, but often the Trainees have to suffer the consequences of their own poor decisions, and he takes that a bit to heart. (That's a good thing, in my opinion -- besides, everything always turns out well and ends with a laugh before the 10 minutes is up).
Very highly recommended to children who like colorful cartoons with engaging characters and pleasant music -- and to parents who want good values reinforced in a way that's memorable to little ones.
The episodes in this DVD are:
Brewster's Little Helper
Koko Takes Charge
Brewster Knows Best
Wilson and the Paint Wagon
Many of them can be previewed on the Disney website, in case you haven't seen the show.
