I am the prime instigator for introducing my friends and family to new DVDs.
As such, I end up watching a lot of them myself and many that are for smaller kids, I’ve lamented that they were not available when our daughter was little.
Up to now I’ve been more familiar with the ‘Chuck’ toys than with the show itself, but recently I received The Adventures of Chuck & Friends: Friends to the Finish to review.
Chuck the dump truck turns his fantasies to reality with the help of his vehicular pals- Digger, Boomer, Rowdy, Bigs, Handy, and Soku. Bonus material on the DVD includes a color-your-own cover activity.
If it’s possible to say that the trucks, cars and vehicles of all kinds in this DVD make a great performance, then I’m saying it. I think what makes Friends to the Finish so appealing to kids is that there is plenty of episodes on it (10 in all) and there is a lot of music.
The animation is quite good, and as a parent and caregiver I really like that all the episodes have a learning lesson to go with them. The stories on this DVD stress being a good friend which is a concept children at the pre-school/early school age are just learning and being honest, and who doesn’t need a friendly reminder of that once in a while?! Even grownups!
I recommend The Adventures of Chuck & Friends: Friends to the Finish based on the viewing experience of two young boys in a basement. This is a staple show for them to watch on Treehouse at home, and they are big Chuck Truck fans.
