The cartoon is about rescue vehicles in a small town that help people and have lots of adventures. Being kind and helping your friends is central to the cartoons theme, and my kids could definitely learn a few lessons from this. Characters include Fiona Fire engine and Pauli Police car and is aimed at 3-7 year olds.
As part of the bundle we were given to review, we were given a DVD to watch with five full episodes of the cartoon series. My kids loved the stories with 'The ghost car' being a particular favorite. Check out the video below for a taste.
The app is aimed at 2-6 year olds, and has 6 hours of movies and 9 exciting games. I think this is brilliant as it can entertain your kids for hours. My four year old daughter and 2 year old son have both been having great fun playing the app, and I am sure it will be a firm favourite. There is a free version of the app, but you can purchase the full version with 24 movies and 9 games for £9.69 which I think it is great value for what you get. My daughter loves the train track game, and the game putting out the fires. Daddy James also had a go, and he really enjoyed. The games start off easy but get progressively harder. They are really user friendly and simple to use. Every time you complete a level you get fireworks which the kids loved.
We also had a Heroes of the city book and toys, which the kids also loved. The book is hard backed, with a story about Paulie the police car and Fiona the fire engine, and is called 'The Hot Air Balloon'. The story has wonderful pictures and the children found it thoroughly entertaining.
The children were quickly fighting over the two die cast figures that we were sent. We were sent Fiona the fire engine and Tilly the Train. The detail on them is surprisingly good , and they have a definite feel of good quality.
As you can see from the photo's they are thoroughly engrossed!
