“ Brand: Chuggington / Type: Train Set „
For £10.99 (average RRP) you can buy this addition to the Chuggington Interactive set. It is good that you can collect the other Chuggers to go with the ones provided in some the sets (for example you get a Wilson with the All Round Chugger set and a Brewster with the Bridges and Tunnels and a Puffer Pete with another of the sets). My stepson has the All Round set with Wilson and also the straights and curves extension pack. He also has a Koko and a Brewster bought separately and the other week his auntie sent him a Puffer Pete that came in a set she bought for her son which he already had. He was pleased to get another addition to his Chuggers and of course the more Chuggers you have the more 'interactive' things become as the range of phrases they have expands as they interact with each other.
Frostini has his lift up flap on the side to display his ice cream wares. However as soon as we extricated him from the packaging and my stepson started to inspect him and try him out, he opened this flap up and it fell straight off. There appears to be a small bit sticking out the back on one side of it that keeps pushing one side out of the hinge hole, meaning every time it is lifted up all the way - pop - off it comes. Cue one very annoyed little boy. Super stepmum here has tried to firm up the area around the hinge with some superglue to try and stop it from popping out. It works from time to time. I do not know if any other Frostini owners have had the same problem but it is a right pain in the you know what when you keep hearing a small boy going 'Ugh - it fell of again. Why does it keep falling off?'
Best to get this as cheap as you can - like from ELC or Amazon as paying the full price for these interactive chuggers feels like a bit of a rip off at times.
