TimetoPlayMag.com Ratings and Reviews
At TimetoPlayMag.com, we want to engage, inform and entertain our readers to give them the benefit of our knowledge, experience and the breadth of products we cover. We look at more than 10,000 new toys and children’s products every year, and our primary purpose is to help you make the best choices for the kids in your life.
Our goal is to give you the real story on what you’ll find when you bring a toy home. And we know that every kid and every family is different. That’s why we always say: “The hot toy is only hot if it’s hot for your child.”
Our editorial team has more than 100 years combined experience working in the toy industry. Our rating system ranks toys on 4 key criteria:
- Fun — Does it engage the child? Does it inspire imaginative play? Does it contribute to creative expression? Is it entertaining?
- Repeat Play OR Collectibility — Some toys are played with, some are collected. If we feel a toy is better suited for collectibility, we’ll rank it based on Collectibility instead of Repeat Play.
- Repeat Play — Will kids come back to it over time? Does the toy allow diverse imaginative play experiences? Does it provide longer-term play value?
- Collectibility — Some toys may have limited traditional play, but kids will treasure them as collectibles.
- Assembly/Instructions — Is the toy easy to assemble? Are the instructions clear?
Over the years we’ve learned a lot about what makes great toys and exciting play experiences. We want to help you create the best experiences for your kids and your family.
Ultimately, you’re the best judge of what you want to bring into your home — and what’s best for your kids. And because you’re an important part of the Time to Play family, we invite you to let us know if you ever find an error or have any ideas how we can better help you. After all, we exist for one reason: to help you have more fun!
What It Is
Fisher-Price's Rescue Heroes: Hero World is a collectible action figure line for preschoolers. These action figures are part of an action-packed world where courageous everyday heroes (police officer, firefighter) save the day. Each action figure comes with accessories and moveable parts. Billy Blazes the firefighter comes with an ax that kids can move up and down and a water cannon with plastic "water" projectile. Other heroes include Perry Trooper (a paratrooper), Captain Cuffs (a police officer), and Rocky Canyon (a rescue mountain climber). There are also vehicle playsets sold separately.
Why It’s Fun
The Rescue Heroes: Hero World action figures are a great way for preschoolers to engage in pretend play as everyday heroes. Perhaps a child wants to be a police officer or firefighter when he grows up. With cool accessories and moving parts, these figures offer kids many opportunities for open-ended narrative play.
Who It’s For
Rescue Heroes: Hero World is for ages 3 and up. The play is geared more toward boys—the action figures are all men—but there may be girls who also aspire to be everyday heroes.
What to Be Aware of
The vehicle playsets range in price from $17—$38.
This is a reintroduction of the popular Rescue Heroes line, with characters slightly smaller than the originals, but they're sized well for small hands and active play.
