So cute and it teaches important messages in a way that my soon-to-be 4 year old can relate to." Gail, Mom "My son is almost four and has therapy twice a week due to a speech delay. He loves trains and his therapist has been able to incorporate Chuggington trains into his therapy both using the show and the toys. I feel that has been a big part of the improvement I have seen in him." Cara, Mom "My 18 month old grandson loves watching Chuggington on Disney. It is his favorite show, when it comes on he stops whatever he's doing and watches intently. I love the lessons it teaches the little ones. To work hard, do your part and when accidents or mistakes happen, take care of them, don't run away from it. Thank you very much for what you are bringing to our little minds to learn and be better citizens in this world. Not only the lessons, but the entertainment is first rate."
