These are exciting times for Chuggington, the popular train-based animated show. With a new series, Chuggington: Tails from the Rails, airing on BBC's CBeebies channel and iPlayer, the launch of an extensive new toy range with Alpha Group, plus an official YouTube Chuggington channel with over a million subscribers, it’s the perfect moment for a Chuggington magazine, says Signature Publishing.
Just like the show, the magazine will follow the adventures of three young Trainees – Wilson, Koko and Brewster – as they learn about teamwork, friendship, diversity, kindness and fun. It's packed, say the publishers, with stories, colouring, puzzles and games, all created to help develop children's key early learning skills, along with competitions and a 5-piece train playset that ties in with the magazine content.
“We've worked with Chuggington over a number of years and are so excited to be publishing Adventures with Chuggington,” says Amanda Clifford, Signature Publishing’s Editorial Director. “The characters are fun, the story-telling engaging, the design bright and colourful, and Chuggington’s theme for 2021 – Training Together – is such an uplifting and positive message to share. We’re sure the magazine is going to be a massive hit with children and families.”
Adventures with Chuggington is on sale 19th August, priced £4.99.
