Trains and boys go hand in hand! While my oldest child Reed has sadly outgrown his train phase after main years, my littlest Jax has just discovered their magic! At fifteen months he recognizes the sound of a train whistle and jumps up and down with excitement! I knew it was the perfect time to introduce him to Chuggington! Since he also recognizes the sound of sirens, the new Fire Patrol Rescue was the perfect introduction.
This limited edition set comes with a little train and he immediately began pushing it around and making little boy train noises!
While he doesn’t have the longest attention span, he will sit for a show or two since they’re just around ten minutes! The Chuggington shows are short enough to hold his attention but I can play more than one if I need to with a total running time of 62 minutes and six episodes.
While Reed has outgrown his love of cartoon trains at seven years old, he did sit down to watch a few with Jax so I know that love is still in there!
Whether your little boy is a train lover or fireman lover, or both; this DVD will entertain them and teach them the good values of hard work and teamwork!
I love Anchor Bay’s family friendly titles and that my kids can enjoy a show they love on TV while they are at home! Chuggington has become a new favorite for my boys and I’m sure Jax will enjoy it for years to come.

Check out These Great Fire Safety Tips!
In honor of “Chuggington Fire Patrol Rescue Day,” and to help keep your family and young trainees safe all year-round, here are some important tips from Firechugger Asher and the National Fire Protection Association:
· Asher says, “Plan ahead!”
Create a home escape plan so every member of your family knows what to do and where to go if there’s a fire. Designate a meeting spot, such as a tree or mailbox, that’s a safe distance from the home. And practice your home fire drill both at night and during the day.
· Asher says, “Stop a fire before it starts!”
Keep matches and lighters out of sight and out of reach from children. Store them up high, preferably in a locked cabinet or drawer. It’s also important to teach kids that lighters and matches are tools for adults only and that they should tell a grown-up if they see these items lying around.
· Asher says, “Cool it in the kitchen!”
Always keep an eye on the stove while you’re cooking, and use a timer as a reminder that the stove or oven is on. Create a “kid-free zone” around the stove as well as areas where hot food and drinks are prepared. And make sure to keep anything that can catch fire, including oven mitts and towels, away from hot appliances!
· Asher says, “Sound the alarm! “
Smoke detectors are a key part of a home fire escape plan. Make sure to install smoke detectors on every floor of the home, especially inside and outside bedrooms. Don’t forget to test all smoke alarms at least once a month!
· Asher says, “Stay low and stay out! “
If, during a fire, you have to escape through smoke, get low, go under the smoke and close the doors behind you as you leave each room. It’s crucial to remind children that, once outside, they should never go back inside for anything, including pets or toys. It’s best to wait to call the fire department until you get outside and are a safe distance away from the fire.
Asher says, “Follow these blazin’ safety tips and you’ll be in control and ready to roll if there’s ever a fire.”
