Heroes of the City Review

Heroes of the City

Heroes of the City is a television cartoon about rescue vehicles in a small town where everybody gets to be a hero!

Follow the exciting adventures of Pauli Police Car and Fiona Fire Engine as they help the townspeople find thieves, put out fires, and solve one of the many mysteries that happen in the otherwise quiet town and meet Calamity Crow, the most unlucky bird in town.

Primarily target at children aged 3-7, Heroes of the City emphasizes friendship and shows what may be accomplished by helping each other.

As well as a television cartoon, Heroes of the City has its own app (suitable for Apple and Android devices) containing movies and lots of fun, educational games, books, DVD’s and die-cast cars.

We were sent a Heroes of the City Book, DVD, Tilly Train die-cast car, Harry Hotrod die-cast car and given the Heroes of the City app to review.

Die-Cast Cars

All the kids loved the Heroes of the City products. Zachary went for the die-cast cars straight away, especially Tilly Train. The cars are quite robust and really cute looking. They are big enough for small hands, but not so small that they would get lost in a pocket.

Book

The book we were sent, “The Hot Air Balloon” is all about when Hot Dog Herbies cousin, Ginger Goose, comes to visit in her hot air balloon. Many in the town are curious about the impressive hot air balloon but Calamity Crow is the most curious of all, and with his usual bad luck and habit of poking his beak in to other people’s business, he quickly finds himself dangling helplessly upside down under the rising balloon. Can the Heroes of the City save him?

The book has a hardback cover and the pages feel fairly thick and sturdy, which is great for rough little ones who like to pull on the pages of a book. With easy to read story and amazing illustrations this book was a big hit!

DVD

The Heroes of the City DVD contains 5 episodes of the 3D animated TV series. As soon as I put it on the younger 2 were transfixed. The animation really is great and I love the fact that there are morals and hidden messages within the episodes.

App

Heroes of the City

The Heroes the City app has a FREE version to download which contains one story, a movie trailer and three games. However, it’s not too expensive to upgrade to the FULL version (less than £10) which is PACKED with movies (which can also be downloaded to your device), stories, and games!

The games are really fun, educational and not too difficult for a 3-year-old to complete.

 

 

I love that Heroes of the City is different from a lot of the programmes out there at the moment. They are fun to watch and capture the imagination, but they also teach the children morals and how it feels to help each other out. A great life lesson!
