Quality

The developers have done a great job of creating an app that is easy to use as the user interface is highly intuitive. The illustrations and videos that are included are also very well done and are what you might expect from the television show. With fun music, narration, and sound effects this app is a high quality storybook adventure that children are really going to enjoy.

Education

With narration options and text highlighting, this app allows children the opportunity to practice their reading skills as they follow along with the story. There are also fun games and activities scattered throughout the app that challenge children to use their logic and problem solving skills as they help the Chuggineers fix railways and avoid various obstacles.

Entertainment

The developers have not only done a great job with the entertaining story, but they have also included fun videos and animations through the story to help keep readers engaged. The challenging activities and games are also sprinkled throughout so children certainly will not get bored. Another great thing about the app is how the developers have made it easy for children to access the videos and games outside of reading the full story. By tapping the “contents” tab, children can scroll through the various frames to select the game or video they would like to explore.

Value

Priced at just under five dollars, this app might be a bit more than parents are used to paying for an app like this, but when you consider the high quality images, videos, and games that are included in addition to the story, it’s a fair deal. Train lovers are definitely going to get a lot of playing time out of this app and all that it has to offer.

Child Friendliness

Chuggington-We are Chuggineers is not only a fun app, but it is also very easy to use. With the various narration options and text highlighting early readers will have no problem moving through the app on their own. The set up is also very easy to use with arrows at the bottom of each page and visual prompts to help children as they play each game.
