What we think...

Paw Patrol is featured heavily in Rocky's Christmas list this year, last year it was Ninja Turtles. Paw Patrol is a cartoon on Nick Jr, for all those reading this that don't know. A group of puppies with different jobs, saving people from different disasters or emergencies in each episode, having adventures and fun along the way. It's one of the ones I can tolerate being on my screen which in itself is a big thumbs up. If you step foot in any of the toy shops you will be confronted with a vast array of Paw Patrol toys, but which one to buy? Well, this one... as this one will make you the favourite on the day within seconds of opening, with both the child and the parent (if you aren't the parent). 

This brightly coloured box of joy has hours of low noise level imagination play inside for any fan aged 3+. Setting up is easy for small fingers and is pretty sturdy plastic, but please remember that they should be supervised at all times with this toy due to small parts. Their favourite characters from the show can launch themselves from the launchpad and into action, just like they do on the TV. Just turn the launcher until the pup who is right for the job is in line with the exit and press to release them onto the track. It comes with 4 of the characters (Ryder, Rubble, Chase & Zuma) but only 2 of their vehicles (Ryder & Rubble), however you can buy the others separately if you wish (could be used as pocket money earning enticement). You can also buy other Paw Patrol "Roll Patrol" sets which can interact with this one, meaning the fun is never ending.
