Whilst my son was unwell and confined to the home, he used to love watching Chuggington every day. He loved everything about this programme: the trains, their faces (particularly their eyes), the modelling and animation. I really think watching Chuggington in the peace and quiet of our home, away from the hurly burly of school, helped my son to rest and to slowly recover. So imagine my delight when one day, after months of being miserable and sad, he started to chuckle at the eyes on the trains. It was a lovely moment that gave me hope.
