Just before Christmas we were contacted by the company behind Heroes of the City children’s TV series, and sent a bundle of goodies to look at as well as being given a code to review the Heroes of the City app.
Turned out that this was really popular with the small people – so that was a good thing. Personally I thought it was a bit fiddly, but I’m obviously not the target market (Anyone else worried that their children are better with tablets than they are? Just me?) There are a variety of vehicle based games, such as obstacle races and so on. Again, rather more suited to the children than me! (I need to brush up on my app reviewing skills don’t I? But possibly not tonight, given it’s late and I’m tired.)
And if you’d like to have your own books and toys tie in kit, you’re in luck, as I’ve one to giveaway. This prize will be sent direct by the company concerned, so only enter if you are willing to have me pass your details along.
It will look something like this:
(I can’t guarantee that it will be exactly those vehicles and so on. We got a fire engine and a tractor.)
There’s a review of the book over on my book blog, Shingle Street if you want to know more about it.
To enter the competition, leave me a comment, telling me your favourite fictional vehicle. (I think mine is probably Herbie.)
Extra completly optional entries (but you must leave a separate comment for each one you do for it to count!)
