Mas­ter­mind Toys is thrilled to announce the arrival of Chug­ging­ton Wooden Rail­way in late Sep­tem­ber 2010, a Mas­ter­mind Toys Cana­dian exclusive!
The world of Chug­ging­ton (as por­trayed in the TV show) revolves around 3 train char­ac­ters named Koko, Wil­son, and Brew­ster, who are “train-ees” that learn the ropes of train-dom, hav­ing adven­tures and learn­ing valu­able lessons along the way. They are sur­rounded by a large cast of colour­ful char­ac­ters who help them along the way, and the toys are based off of these train char­ac­ters and the world they inhabit.
The show itself was cre­ated with today’s kids in mind! It is up-tempo and engag­ing, and fea­tures a mod­ern visual style cre­ated using com­puter ani­ma­tion… very cool!
Check out this video fea­tur­ing the intro to the show, and for more videos and clips, try Chuggington.com!
The BEST part about Chug­ging­ton Wooden Rail­way is the toys them­selves! These cool toys have some excit­ing fea­tures that add to the play value… and fun

The Trains: the Chug­ging­ton Wooden Trains them­selves are chunky, brightly coloured, and they bring a lot of fun to the table! All of your favourites from the show are here (even everyone’s favourite, Old Puffer Pete!) The colours of these trains really stand out, and their chunky size makes them per­fect for play

 

The Track: the track is made from high-quality wood and is com­pat­i­ble with all other major wooden rail­way toys. The dimen­sions are exactly the same, so there’s noth­ing to stop you from grow­ing your exist­ing col­lec­tion with Chuggington!

 

The Des­ti­na­tions: This is where Chug­ging­ton Wooden Rail­way toys really stand out! The lineup fea­tures some excit­ing new des­ti­na­tion pieces includ­ing an engine wash, clock tower, sig­nal depot… and the show­piece of the line, the two-level round­house! The round­house gives you an idea of the fun that comes from these toys, as it comes com­plete with an elevator-turntable piece (how else are the engines going to get to the sec­ond level?!?), it can also be taken apart into 2 sep­a­rate one-level round­houses, and has track that runs along the top of the round­house itself! All of the Chug­ging­ton des­ti­na­tions, are fun, bright, and built for play!

 

 

This Chug­ging­ton Wooden Rail­way was a huge hit at my house and I just know this will be every lit­tle boy’s or girl’s dream to be under the Christ­mas tree this year at their house as well!

“We are thrilled to announce that CHUGGINTON IS NOW AVAILABLE IN-STORE AND ONLINE! Remem­ber, this fall and win­ter in Canada, this line of wooden rail­way toys will be exclu­sive to Mas­ter­mind Toys stores (and avail­able online at MastermindToys.com!)”

I had the absolute plea­sure of being able to review Mas­ter­mind Toys and give this com­pany a HUGE thumbs up! I totally rec­om­mend them to everyone!!

    CoolCanucks Blog Contest ~ Simply on Board Toy Strap Review & Giveaway!!CLOSED

    Tuesday, August 31st, 2010

    Thanks to Sim­ply on Board, there is finally a way to keep toys in the stroller or car seat! Who doesn’t have a tough time with that?!

    These great toy straps will hold pretty much every­thing from Sophie the giraffe, to soothers to teethers to your child favorite stuffed toy. The vel­cro is super strong and very adjustable. They are a def­i­nite must have for every par­ent with young children!

    Fea­tures
    •  Strong Vel­cro on either end, no snaps or clasps
    •  Avail­able in a vari­ety of fash­ion­able pat­terns

    True to their designs, these cute straps are a must have for any baby or tod­dler. I don’t know about you, but as new moms we always seem to leave a lit­ter of dropped toys and sippy cups in our wake. That was before we started attach­ing a Sim­ply on Board strap to every­thing in sight. You just attach one Vel­cro end of the strap to a stroller, car seat, high chair, baby car­rier or what have you, and the other adjustable end (Vel­cro again) to the thing you don’t want to lose, whether it’s your baby’s favorite soother or the indis­pen­si­ble Sophie the Giraffe. There are two machine-washable straps per pack and a vari­ety of colours to choose from. Avail­able at Babies R Us, as well as in store and online at Mas­ter­mind Toys.

    Great for keep­ing toys in the stroller or car seat but we love it for the Sippy Cup (sim­ply attach to the neck of the bottle).

    These really do work, I know first hand as I had the plea­sure of review­ing them!! What a God-send for sure — no more arm and leg work, it’s every par­ents dream!

    One very lucky Cool­Canucks reader will walk away with Toy Strap, thanks to the very kind and gen­er­ous folks over at Sim­ply on Board! SWEET!!

    To Enter:

    Manda­tory Entry – ***This is a MUST!! Those who don’t ful­fill the very first entry will be dis­qual­i­fied! Also, any com­ments such as ‘enter me’ or ‘love to win’ will be deleted.***

    1) Head on over to Sim­ply on Board and tell me why you would love to have one of these great straps!

    ————->The Above is MANDATORY before any extra entries count. <—————

    *****EXTRA ENTRIES: (Optional, these are there for you just in case you would like more chances of win­ning!!)********** Leave com­ments all in one com­ment box, or in sep­a­rate boxes, that is totally up to you! Note: All entries left in one box only counts as one entry so your choice!****************
