Little man J is a big lover of toy cars – well any toy vehicles in fact – and I have lost count of how many he owns. I know that it’s a big box full, at least! He also loves to watch cartoons and films with ‘brum brums’, so when we were invited to review Heroes of the City, I couldn’t say no. 

Heroes of the City is a television cartoon about rescue vehicles in a small town where everyone can be a hero!
 Follow the fantastically exciting adventures along with friends in town.
Meet 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.
You will also get to know Calamity Crow, the most unlucky bird in town. Emphasizing friendship, Heroes of the City contains a great deal of warmth and what may be accomplished by helping each other.

We received a book, a DVD, and two toy vehicles – I’ll let you guess what he went for first!

After he’d had a play with the cars, we sat down to watch the DVD and read the book. 

The DVD consisted of 5 short episodes involving all of the fun characters. The animation is really great and the characters are fantastic and fun for little ones to enjoy. The book is the story of The Hot Air Balloon – J isn’t quite at the reading stage yet so I read it to him, but he loves to look at & point out the pictures which are great for his age. The recommended age range is 3-6 years so the book is good to last right through.

There is also a free app for Heroes of the City (available on the Play store too) to go alongside the cartoon series. The app contains more than six hours of movies which can keep them occupied on the go, and nine exciting games for little ones to play. J especially enjoyed the colouring one.
