Honking Horns! Chuggington™ on track for best sellers list this Christmas
Every traintastic Chuggington fan will be hoping to find something from the colourful world of Chuggington in their Christmas stocking this year. The range includes toys, story & activity books, games, puzzles, apparel, bedding and DVD’s, featuring all their favourite characters.


The popular TV series behind the range is a contemporary, action based, energetic and vibrant CGI series for children aged 2 – 5 years. It follows the humorous adventures of three young trainees – Wilson, Brewster and Koko – as they learn to ride the rails. Each traintastic episode engages boys and girls alike, teaching simple yet important social readiness lessons – from learning confidence, patience, independence and responsibility, to understanding the value of teamwork and friendship.

Chuggington is one of Australia’s leading children’s television programs for preschoolers, so these gifts are ‘absotootly’ destined to be on this year’s best sellers list.

Wilson, Brewster, Koko and all the other Chuggington characters would like to introduce you to their top picks for a ‘Chugga Chugga Choo Choo’ Christmas:
