Heroes Of The City App Review And Giveaway

Well it has been a great start to the year as we have been lucky enough to have been road testing the Heroes of the City App, as well as Goodies from the same show. My children love cartoons, but I prefer when the cartoon is educational yet fun. Fortunately Heroes of the City fits the bill!

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 best thing that we got to review was the Heroes of the City App. The app is available to download  on both Android devices and apple iPhones.
AppStore: here
GooglePlay: here
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!


Well now its time for one of my lucky readers to win a bundle of Heroes of the City goodies for themselves. The winner will win a book, DVD and Die Cast figures. Just complete the rafflecopter entries below to enter. Please remember to correctly complete all entries as I will check!
