Fun break for kids

My son really likes Chuck and all of his friends. Good family values. Helps kids learn about social interaction, feelings and empathy. I like that Chuck and his friends use their imaginations and problem solving skills in every episode. Also, Chuck often has little chores he needs to complete for the family business, and there is always some sort of consequence when it gets put off. Chuck learns and teaches responsibility, family values, friendship, and feelings. I don't think they push the toys anymore then any other show does.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: (3 ):
Kids say: Not yet rated

This utterly delightful preschool series is reminiscent of Cars in its impressive characterization, assigning a range of personalities and talents that perfectly suit its four-wheeled cast members. Each character's unique qualities play a role in the stories, which sends good messages to kids about respecting differences and seeing past appearances. Plus, Chuck's willingness to admit his mistakes and identify ways to remedy the situations teaches kids about responsibility.

Positive lessons are everywhere, and Chuck and his friends reinforce what they learn from their experiences in recaps at the end of each episode, so the messages are sure to impact the show's young audience. Of course, none of this will be on the minds of preschoolers as they revel in the characters' adventures, which more than anything are just plain fun.
