All Aboard For a great Chuggington Giveaway! – Frugal Novice

All Aboard For a great Chuggington Giveaway!

I announced a while back that I’ve been selected as a Chuggington Conductor, which means I’ll get to share all sorts of Chuggington news – and giveaways – with y’all! We just received our first Chuggington shipment and it was filled with three great Mega Bloks sets!

The smallest of the three sets is the Repair Shed. The boys thought this was fun because they’d seen it many times on the show, and they loved popping a piece of the trains off so they were “broken” and could be fixed.You’ll have to excuse the blur on J in this pic below – he was too busy playing to sit still! You might notice there are a few little tools included with this set – the boys thought they were great and I think it’s a perfect addition to let little builders feel like they’re equipped for being a train mechanic!

The next set we built was the Roundhouse Racing set. The turntable (for lack of a better word) and the garage doors that opened and closed were a big hit. The boys created a lot of dialogue for the trains while playing with this set – they talked about needing to get out of the rain, or that it was time to head out of their “house” for the day. This could easily be combined with other sets, too, to make a big scenario for playing.

They enjoyed all three sets, but the last set – Jet Pack Adventure – was definitely the boys’ favorite. I kind of thought it might be, because it’s got a huge track sloping and curving around towers, and it also has a sky rail that the trains can hook on to and soar down.

Another thing I really love about this set is that it’s big enough for both of the boys to play on at once without arguing – one plays on the track while the other plays with the sky rail, and then they switch. Perfect! Check out the set in action in this video I took while the boys played:

I know these sets will be ones the boys play with for a long time to come. It’s great too because they can watch an episode of Chuggington and then play along at home, adding to the story with their own imaginations. I really love that these sets foster creativity!

You can find all three of these sets and more fun Chuggington products at Toys R Us and Amazon. New Chugginton episodes air on Disney Junior weekdays at 7:30 AM EST, featuring your favorite characters as they navigate the rails with help from both new and old friends.

But of course I’m sure you haven’t forgotten the traintastic giveaway!

One lucky reader will win all THREE of the Chuggington Mega Bloks sets I reviewed above, with a total MSRP of almost $95.00! These sets will thrill your kids and provide hours of fun – this is a great giveaway!
