The new City of Friends app (for iPhone and iPad) contains games and activities for children 2-6 years, based on the successful children’s TV series, City of Friends.
The series centers around the three emergency services – Police, Ambulance and Fire and three friends (Max, Ted and Elphie) who are dedicated to their new positions in the emergency services. They experience lots of adventures which all lead to new experiences and life lessons.
The app enables you to get to know the three recruits, Max, Ted and Elphie as they join their respective emergency teams on exciting missions. There are 6 games:
Put out fires with Elphie
Organise Ted’s First Aid kit
Fly the helicopter with Max
Get to know the City of Friends in a classical memory game
Check out the emergency vehicles
TV series movie snippets rewards
My toddler just loves his ‘nee-naws’ so I thought this app would be perfect for him. He’s scarily good at navigating his way around our iPhones and iPad so I knew he would have fun with the app. It’s pretty easy to use and he enjoyed all the games although needed a bit of help with some of them. This gets a big thumbs up from us and, as there are three levels of difficulty in some of the games, it’s one app that he’ll get lots of enjoyment from as his skills develop.
The City of Friends app (for iPhone and iPad) is available from the iTunes store.
I have a little cBeebies addict, never happier than watching some of his favourite programmes, such as Chuggington, Mike the Knight and of course Mr Tumble.

The book is aimed at 2 years+ so perfect for my toddler. We’ve had lots of fun reading the jokes and looking at the pictures of Justin dressed up. Our favourite joke has to be -
What do you call an angry pea?
