Chuggington – New Playset and Giveaway

Chuggington is great fun for kids of all ages on TV, and even more fun when playing with the tracks and play sets associated with the characters.  Some of the most fun sets are inspired by actual episodes.  We are going to take a look at two sets of Chuggington track sets, Koko’s Ice Escape and the Twists and Turns Expansion.  Both of which are great sets for different reasons, Ice Escape lets kids reenact a classic episode and Twists and Turns get the creative juices flowing.

First up is Koko’s Ice Escape Action Playset.  The play set is based on the episode of Chuggington called “Frostini’s Meltdown”.  In the episode the power goes out and Frostini has to keep his ice cream from melting.  The Chuggers help Frostini get to the ice tunnel to save the day.  The play set features Koko and is a windy twisty track.



Since this track is for the new die cast trains, the tracks are able to stack upon each other to bring the excitement to the next level as well as stimulate some outside the box thinking.  There are a few possible track combinations, but the real fun starts once everyone has a firm grasp of what the tracks can do and how they fit best together.  Little Man really likes this set because of the swirls and turns in it which translate to more levels of fun and bigger stacked tracks.  The play set itself also includes bridges and overpasses as well as a frosty cargo cart to pull around.


Next up is the Twists and Turns Expansion.  This pack can be added to any other die cast track set.  With the 15 pieces included it is easier then ever to have your play set reach for the sky or connect multiple sets together for one mega set with trains going in every direction and tons of fun.  The way track building works in our house is Dad and Little Man build the tracks together, then eventually Little Man smashes the track when they are almost done playing.  Im not sure who has more fun, Dad craming as many twists and turns into one set or Little Man once its all done and its almost time to smash it.  Either way they both have a great time working together and sharing their vision of the Chuggington world.
