Heroes of the City Movie App Review

If your kids are anything like mine then they will be screen mad! My iPad is one of the most desired objects in the house! In most cases time on "Mummy's Pad" has to be earned, but they are allowed to use it. So I think that as they are going to use it there needs to be some safe, kid friendly stuff on it that's right for their ages. Jack might be all about feeding candy to small green aliens and shooting birds out of sling shots, but I have Tom & George to think of too and while they do love the same games, actually playing them is a bit of a stretch.

"Heroes of the City" have launched their Movie App and have been kind enough to let us have access to the full package. You can download the app for free which includes one full movie episode, 3 games and a music video. There are a number of optional extra movies you can add on.


What the kids thought


This app is aimed at kids ages 2-6. My lot are 1, 3 and 5 so I had a good age range playing with it.

Geroge (20 months) enjoyed the movies! They are very much his preferred style; he likes Thomas the Tank Engine, City of Friends etc, and Heroes of the City appeals to him just as much. He was excited about the games and had a good go at playing them, but being under 2 he struggled to do it alone. He loved playing them with me though, and watching his brothers play too.


Tom (3yrs). He really enjoyed all of this! The movies got his attention and he happily snuggled up with his younger brother to watch an episode. He enjoyed the games and had very little trouble getting the hang of them and was quickly earning bronze and silver trophies.

Jack (5yrs) was less impressed with the movies, but he is old for his age and felt they were more for his brothers them him. He is nearly 6 though which is the top end of the recommended age for the app. But he loved the games! He was happy to play them for the whole of his "screen time" and thought it was great that he was getting silver and gold trophies.


What I thought

This is a nice app. The movies are a good length and a very handy way of keeping the kids entertained while I do other important stuff (like cook dinner!) especially since they were happy to share the iPad to watch. The games are lovely and very varied. I quite enjoyed having a little go on them myself!


How much does it cost?

The app it self is FREE! As always there are optional extras if you choose to go for them:

On iTunes:

The extras are $3.99 (less than £2.50 at today's exchange rate)

There is also the $12.99 (under £8 at today's exchange rate)
