Paw Patrol has been a firm favourite in our household since Jordan first laid eyes on those cute pups. I mean, the kid honestly believes some days that he IS Ryder. I, apparently, am Skye and Banjoe of course, being a bulldog and all is our very own Rubble. Jordan sometimes makes him wear a yellow hard hat so that he really looks the part but it never lasts very long. Jordan is HUGE into role playing and it’s just the sweetest thing.
Jordan has loved Paw Patrol since day one, before he could even pronounce it and used to call it “PawTro” – bless my sweet child.
As parents, we really needs to be careful and stay so in tune with what our kids are watching. Nic and I like to discuss the shows with Jordan as he is watching so that he doesn’t get completely sucked into a trance whilst watching.. it’s quite terrifying when that happens. We love Paw Patrol for the kind hearted nature of Ryder and the pups and how their entire mission is to help their friends and neighbours. I love that the show includes people and problems of all backgrounds and situations and how teamwork is essential in solving problems. Every episode ends on a happy note which is so important for the targeted age group.
The Paw Patrol episodes really encourage role play with kids as it gives them (and us) endless ideas for games possibilities around the house, such as ‘help mom find the car keys’. We turn everything into a mission because ‘no job is too big and no pup is too small’.
I adore the way way that Paw Patrol has brought nature into the game by introducing the Jungle range of toys. The little characters are soooo cute! Jordan and Micah spent ages driving their vehicles around, Jordan might have even slept with the terrain vehicle in his bed that night. He was so stoked.
Micah can’t walk past one of the little themed vehicles without stopping for a zoom around, they aren’t dinky or finicky at all, they are super solid and are really good quality. I’m impressed. Any toy for a 3 year old needs to be okay with being bashed around and these have definitely passed the test. Micah knows exactly what to do with the little vehicles and he makes the car sounds and everything. It’s just a joy to watch.
