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)

How do I get this awesome app?

It's available on iPhone, iPad, and Android Phones & Tablets.

AppStore: Download
GooglePlay: Download


We have been asked to play with and review the Heroes of the City Movie app. We have not been paid to do the review, all opinions expressed are our own. The app it self is free, and we were given 1 years free access to all the paid for optional add ons.

Romance

Now, we don't really do Romance, Yorkie and I. We're not the sort of couple that goes to posh restraunts, buy hearts and flowers on a whim etc, but last night we had a really sweet night. We didn't really do much that was classically romantic, it was the mood, the feeling in the air, if you know what I mean....? I cooked us steaks for tea, which is always a winner for Yorkie (his second fav after anything pork) and had the candles lit in the front room. Not that I was going for a romantic atmosphere, I just like to have candles lit on cold dark nights. We snuggled up on the settee together, watching nothing much on telly, all warm and cozy under a blanket, with the cat curled up o us. We'd been talking a little bit about the wedding and stuff, and about what my doc had said to me about what to do before we start a family. Yorkie's eyes went all soft and sweet, he was hugging me close and saying all the right kind of sweet thinks that I love to hear. It was on

International Babywearing Week

This is AWESOME! And I didn't even know about it until this year! International Babywearing Week ! I am a big fan of babywearing, although my journey to comfortable, workable babywearing was a slow one. With Jack and Tom I tried a variety of strap and buckle slings and they never really suited us. I gave up with them and thought that babywearing was for other people. Then when I had Georgie my step-mum gave me a Moby cloth wrap sling that she had found at a car boot sale. It came with a book of instructions for how to tie the sling and how to fit baby in safely and comfortably. I gave it a try. Georgie loved it. I loved it. I was totally sold! So from then on when ever I went shopping, or on the school run with the older boys, or to visit friends, or anything.... I popped Georgie in the Moby Wrap. He was comfortable, warm, close to my heart and his much loved boobies (I breastfeed), he could see the world around him, and was a very very happy baby! When I found out
