Heroes of the City: Review and Giveaway

Are you ready for another giveaway?! I was fortunate to have the opportunity to review several items from the Heroes of the City series- a book, a DVD, and two toy cars. I also downloaded the free app for my boys to try out. 

One of the things I loved about this series is that the fire truck is a girl! Fiona Fire Truck is a great character, and I feel like the fire trucks in most cartoons are boys. My boys both loved watching the Ready to Rescue DVD, which featured several episodes of adventures with Paulie the Police Car and Fiona Fire Truck. There are many characters in this series, which seemed to keep my boys interested. I would liken it to Thomas the Train, because it is has more of a calm feeling to it then some of the other kids' shows. It's not chaotic or intense like some other children's shows. This show has a great message, and is perfect for ages 2-6. Both of my boys loved the shows.

Mayhem LOVED this series. He loves his toy cars, the app, the book and the DVD. He has renewed interest in his cars (originally Little J's cars), and lines them all up yelling, "Calling all heroes!" It's adorable. After I read the book to him the first time, he told me to find more of them. 

The app is also great, with movies and games for the kids to enjoy. Both of my boys had fun with the 9 different games that come FREE with this app! 

I've got a Heroes of the City prize pack to giveaway to one lucky winner! 

UPDATE: Congratulations to Jenna from! She is the lucky winner.

  1. These look so fun, my son would have loved these a couple of years ago!

  2. I wish I had little ones 'cause I'm sure they would love this. I like that there is a female fire truck too - that's great!

  3. Aww how cute, these look like a lot of fun for kids. Kiddo would've loved these when he was little, especially the toy cars and book!

  4. Hmm... I wonder if my sister and her little three-year-old son know about this series. I've never heard of it before but it is totally something Colt would love! - Katy

  5. I haven't heard of this series before! My son loves all things firefighters and cars. This would be a hit at our house.
