Heroes of the City is a firm favourite of my 4yr old after we first discovered it back in 2013 and enjoyed watching Series 1. The animated tv series is aimed at preschool children and follows various rescue vehicles about a town where everybody gets to be a hero teaching values of friendship and helping each other.
They now have a Heroes of the City youtube channel which has a total of 6 hours worth of entertainment across 18 different languages for worldwide appeal. With characters such as Fiona the Fire Engine (my little boys favourite as it’s the same name as me!), Paulie the Police Car (that’s daddy cos he’s a policeman), Hector Helicopter, Troy Tractor, Hot Dog Herbie and many more including Calamity Crow who gets up to all sorts of mischief!
Not only are there plenty of episodes to keep little ones occupied there are activities such as Calamity Crow’s Sketch and Guess Show which are short clips of a minute or two where you have to guess the picture that’s being drawn. Mister B had fun with these and liked clicking the mouse between the different ones himself.
There are also some fabulous craft videos with Calamity Crow helping to demonstrate. Some simple ideas using everyday crafting bits you would have around the house and a few bits out of the recycling box. Mister B has spotted the marble run made out of cardboard tubes that he wants to make so we are saving a few tubes up to have a go.
Take a look at the Heroes of the City youtube channel and hopefully it will keep your child entertained for a while and give them ideas of things to make.
I have a goody bag to offer to one of my readers consisting of a Heroes of the City t-shirt, DVD and diecast model of one of the vehicles in the show. Here is a sample of what you may get although any diecast model may be sent.
All reviews are my own opinions and I received the products as part of my review.
