Technology and the way we evolve and live with it, really makes me think at times. A few years ago in the UK, I remember when we got our 5th tv channel (yes, thats right, we only had 5 TV channels!). Now, we think nothing of all the channels available nut it doesn’t stop there. I find more and more that if my son wants to watch something in particular, we turn to youtube either on my phone or television.
I was asked to review a youtube channel called ‘Heroes of the City’. As soon as I was asked, I knew I had to say yes as we already watch! The motto is ‘everyone can be a hero’ and there is a strong message of friendship and teamwork.
There are lots of characters- a fire engine, tractor, airplane, police car, digger, boat, hot rod and many more. A post van with aspirations is able to become a hero and help.
The story always involves Calamity Crow. The poor crow has a plaster on his beak and goes about his business, fishing, meeting friends or getting an ice cream but always finds himself in a pickle!
My son LOVES the show. He especially likes episode 10 ‘The Treasure Map’, as it involves Digsy the Digger.
I was also sent a pack of goodies for my son and there’s one for you too! The pack contains a t-shirt in one of the following sizes of your choice, a die cast vehicle from the show, a dvd which is handy for on the go and a blow up ball featuring the police car.
As you can see, my little man was overjoyed with the goodies. We’ve had lots of catching practice with the ball, the t-shirt hasn’t been taken off and he thinks the car is great.
If you would like to win then enter the competition below. Take a look at the channel and see what you think- I bet your little one will be mesmerised!
If you are not a user of youtube and are unsure as to how to find this channel, I’ve made a quick ‘how too guide’ for a computer and Iphone/ipad. Click here to read.
As always, I was sent the goodies for free and asked to review the channel but all opinions are my own.
