As children we’ve all dreamed about becoming a hero who can save the day or even the world. Some of us actually do grow up to be everyday heroes such as firefighters, police officers, or doctors realizing that a childhood dream could eventually happen. In the popular children’s TV show, Heroes of the City which originated in Europe, the story follows two brave car heroes, “Pauli Police Car” and “Fiona Fire Engine” and their oft-misunderstood friend, Calamity Crow. The heroes along with the citizens of their city find every day adventures where a little danger and excitement can happen to anyone at anytime. Whether it’s helping put out a fire in a building or guiding a whale across the ocean, the heroes and friends all help each other in one way or the other.
Heroes of the City (http://www.rutaett.com/en/hotc) is produced by the entertainment company, Ruta Ett and can be seen on their website which also offers lots of other visual goodies for kids between the ages of 3-7 years old. There are Apps(http://www.hotc.nu/apper) which can be found in the Apple Store or Google Play, Videos, Games, Stories, Coloring Pages, and Fun Facts. Currently showing on their website is Season One and that’s where you meet all of the citizens and heroes of this delightful town where mysteries are solved and friendships are cemented. There are adorable characters such as police cars, fire trucks, tug boats, tow trucks, delivery trucks, bull dozers, and many more who interact with one another and teach us about life’s little lessons.
I was given the opporutnity to receive a Heroes of the City DVD, Book, and two cute little car figures to try and review. My son and I enjoyed watching the DVD as well as read the book and play along with Pauli and Fiona. The book is a nice decent size and the pictures are colorful and the words easy to read along. I personally had never heard of Heroes of the City prior to this review but am very glad that these little heroes indeed offer something meaningful to those who watch the program and learn about what they do every day. Children especially take on role models around them and what they see on TV greatly affects how they view life in general. With so many inappropriate programs out there for kids, it’s always nice to find something new that are age appropriate and help teach kids life lessons that enable them to grow up healthy and smart.
With Heroes of the City, kids learn about helping one another and making smart decisions. What I particularly liked about Heroes of the City is that they use mobile figures such as cars, trucks, and planes and animate them to be like human beings. They have similar problems as people do and they learn to resolve them in a constructive way. They talk in nice, cute voices and the animation is fun to look at – anytime of the day.
Currently you can purchase the Heroes of the City DVD on Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_ss_c_0_18?url=search-alias%3Dmovies-tv&field-keywords=heroes%20of%20the%20city&sprefix=Heroes+of+the+City%2Ctoys-and-games%2C122 but on their website they offer free Apps, shows, and fun activities: http://www.hotc.nu/apper.
