For those of you who are not familiar with Chuck & Friends, I am going to share with you some information about a few of the characters in this DVD series that my three year old son is obsessed about. Most recently the DVD, The Adventures of Chuck & Friends: Friends to the Finish was released on February 14th for all to purchase at a suggested retail price of $12.99.
He’s a little dump truck with a big sense of humor and lots of energy. Chuck is always curious and has a way of dreaming big — then putting his dreams into action. He loves to go places and find out how things work, and he never backs away from anything new.
This little monster truck loves to live large. Biggs has energy to burn … and a “go for it” attitude that keeps him ready for anything, anytime. He really stands out with his giant tires, rally flag, shiny tailpipes, and steer horns. You can just tell Biggs dreams of being a race star — and he gets plenty of practice racing against Chuck.
Did you ever think a fire truck could be shy? Boomer is big, and he can be loud, but he needs Chuck around to pull him out of his shiny red shell. He may need a push to join in an adventure, but Boomer always jumps into action when it’s time to help a friend. His sirens blare and his lights flash — so you’d never guess that Boomer is really a quiet guy at heart.
Digger is the strong, silent type of front-loader of Hispanic descent, happy to let his powerful scooper and backhoe do the talking for him. For the most part, he’s content to let others make the plans and just follow along, but he’s not without opinions. Digger is smart, gentle and considerate – He’d never use his great strength in anger. He’s also level-headed and surprisingly graceful for a truck of his size. Digger is completely, one hundred percent reliable. If he sets out to get something done, you can bet that he will, even if he’s up until the milk trucks make their rounds.
My three year old’s favorite character is Chuck, maybe it’s because we have a few Chuck the Truck figurines and playsets here that we use often for fun Mama and son time while his brother and sister are in school, but maybe it’s more because Chuck the truck is AWESOME!
My personal favorite reason for loving Chuck & Friends, this DVD series really teaches the boys to be nicer to their friends. Chuck & Friends: Friends to the Finish really assists in teaching the children to have respect, compassion and love for their friends always. I enjoy watching the hidden positive messages in this DVD that kids catch onto but do not realize the real good behind this cartoon series, so basically it’s entertainment to them while giving parents the peace of mind that it’s teaching good to their kids!
