My daughter absolutely and completely loves Paw Patrol…and I do too! What a fun children’s show based on 6 rescue pups. lead by a tech-savvy boy named Ryder, that zoom around town working together to protect the community. The show is mixed with child friendly lessons, humor and action.
When the show came out, the toys were not yet available in the store until a few months down the road. One day, I happened to be at the toy store looking and as I walked around the corner, you wouldn’t believe what I saw! PAW PATROL! I completely freaked out. I was so stoked to find it earlier than planned. Of course, I had to brace myself because I was tempted to buy it all. Well, they actually didn’t have much because A). It was new and B). It was in such high demand that a lot of stuff had been bought up. I decided to start with Chase, Ella’s favorite dog, first. Here’s what I bought:
Nickelodeon, Paw Patrol – Plush Pup Pals- Chase
Nickelodeon, Paw Patrol – Action Pack Pup & Badge – Chase
I love the Chase action figure because when you push the button on his chest and out pops his megaphone. Oh, I felt like a kid in a candy store. I don’t know who would be more excited…me or Ella.
Of course, this meant that I had to get the other 5 pups (good marketing on their behalf). This turned out to be quite a journey. I could only find Rubble within my area.

I was happening to go to San Jose to Tony Robbin’s Unleash the Power Within Conference. I made a pit stop at Toys R Us to see what I could find. Fortunately, I found Marshall and Skye.

4 down, 2 to go. I had to resort to the Internet for the last two because they were no where to be found. I think companies control where you can buy products so that you have to get them from different sources. They sure had me hooked!
Nickelodeon, Paw Patrol – Action Pack Pup & Badge – Zuma
Nickelodeon, Paw Patrol – Action Pack Pup & Badge – Rocky
By this point, I purchased the Nickelodeon, Paw Patrol – Look-out Playset. It’s pretty sweet. The only thing I don’t like about it is that the slide easily falls apart and I constantly have to put it back together. It does make sounds when you push the button in the middle and it comes with Chase and his car.
Now that I had Chase’s car, I had to get the other pups’ cars. As I write this, I can see my lunacy in getting all these toys. I couldn’t help myself. Below are the other toys we have. I didn’t bother buying the other Chase car since I figured that the one with the Look Out Tower was adequate enough. I had to purchase Skye’s Helicopter through the Internet.
I did use some of the toys for Halloween as gifts from the Switch Witch (or as Ella and I say, “Switchy Witchy”). I’ll share about the Switch Witch in another post.
