Die-cast trains and other toys based on the popular TV show Chuggington are certainly most wanted amongst the programme’s many fans (sometimes referred to as Chuggers).
Stores and online retailers in the UK and Australia have been receiving deliveries of the toys supplied by Learning Curve and the public have been busily making tracks to snap them up. However, Chuggers in the USA are having to spend some time in the waiting room before they get the chance to see their favourite Chuggington locomotive pull into their local station.
A few of the metal engines are beginning to appear on Amazon.com from third party traders; charging around $20 for a toy that is on sale in Britain for about £6.
A better and fairer priced hope for getting a favourite Chuggington train to arrive at a destination in the United States comes from Toys Direct, an online retailer based in Middlesbrough, UK.
Not only do Toys Direct ship their of range toys to the US but also to many other countries. Of course shipping costs and currency exchange will have to be taken into consideration, however, Toys Direct supply information at its website’s check-out so you know what you’re paying GB Pounds Sterling before you supply any credit card or personal details.
