What our Reviewer Thought
I first opened the app with my 2 year old who is a big fan of Chugginton, and while he still doesn’t have any words he was very animated about seeing Koko and Brewster (his favourites) on my phone! I moved the story along for him, but when it came to moving the logs off the track he wanted to do it himself and so he did, not always getting a result, but he enjoyed the trying.
My five year old girl is also a Chuggington fan, Koko in particular because she is fast AND a girl! She just took my phone away and played away herself listening to the story and moving the obstacles out the way easily. She found catching the red trucks a little more difficult but after missing one or two she got the hang of it. It’s a short but enjoyable little adventure with our favorite trains!
I will definitely be buying the paid version – if nothing else to end the hounding I have been getting since she played the free one. The only crib I would have is that it is a huge app 150mb to download so I had to delete some old apps which I hadn’t been using to make room. But I am glad I did as they got lots of enjoyment from it.
