The Paw Patrol TV show airs on Nickelodeon, and is popular with kids in the preschool and early elementary age ranges. These adorable little rescue pups drive around in their construction vehicles, ready to "save the day in Adventure Bay!"
Kids love Rubble, Rocky, Everest, Skye, Marshall, Zuma and Chase so much that it's still pretty impossible to go to the toy aisles and get your pick of the litter from the shelf.
How do I know? Yes, parents, I just like you have a child who is a Paw Patrol super-fan. He wants all the toys, slippers, blankets, sheets and a themed Paw Patrol birthday party and cake. I won't lie, I have bought my fair share of these pups on Amazon.com in order to save myself from the disappointment in the aisles. When I travel I visit new Target and Toys R Us store aisles to see if they have a different selection than our hometown. The only show we own a season pass to on our AppleTV is Paw Patrol.
Spinmaster is the toy company behind the release and design of any Paw Patrol toys. With the Paw Patrol Air Patroller Plane they took the super spy theme even into their toy launch of this new toy.
Every year in February I visit Toy Fair in New York. I see all the new toys which will slowly make their way to the shelves usually during the summer months before the holidays. I share these tips and information with fans and readers to help guide your purchasing.
You can bet that I was just as surprised as you to hear that there's a new Paw Patrol toy in the aisles, that is here and on the shelves, even before I knew it existed.
The Air Patroller is both a plane and a helicopter. 2 pups can ride in the cockpit, 4 in the cargo bay. Fly it around the living room, or if you are my son, do a happy dance while safely landing the toy on top of the Paw Patroller.
Listen for the squeals of excitement when they notice that the toy arrives with a coveted RoboPup. If you are looking for the episode that reveals the Air Patroller, its from season 5. In addition to the Air Patroller, each pup is outfitted with their own jet pack that allows them to fly to the scene of a rescue and save the day with a unique features like hover boards and hang gliders.
If your children love Paw Patrol, consider signing up for the Mom Patrol so you can find out all of the latest information about the toys and the show that also include sales, offers and giveaways through their social media channels. There is a real, full size Paw Patroller that travels the United States and might bring the pups to your neighborhood.
While I often receive toy samples to facilitate reviews, I purchased this toy completely on my own free will for the purpose of this post.
