My Thoughts:

Savannah is a huge Paw Patrol fan.  How big?  There is not a day that goes by that she is not wearing a Paw Patrol t-shirt or toting around one of her favorite pups from the show. And, come Christmas, I have a feeling Santa will be bringing her more Paw Patrol toys, as this is all she asked for.  :-)  

When Savannah is not playing with her toys or acting out scenes from the show with Bella, she loves to play with the Paw Patrol apps on our iPad, with this new app being her favorite so far.  I don't know about you, but whenever my girls are using the iPad, they always seem to seek out coloring or doodling apps.  Knowing this, I knew that Savannah would love this new Paw Patrol, which released last week.  And, that she did!  Within the first few minutes of playing, she had gone through the different features of this app, and was creating fun colorful pictures of her favorite pups, some of which she turned into e-cards and had me to send to Nana and Papa. 

I like it when apps are easy for little ones to grasp and learn how to navigate around, and this is one that I didn't have to stop and show her how to use it.  The interface is similar to other painting apps, where you choose the brush size and paint color and then move throughout the picture filling in the lines.  But, what made this a really fun app that keeps Savannah wanting to play with over and over, is the animated sticker feature.  She loves seeing her pictures come to life. And, the use of the magic wand to add more life to her pictures is also a fun feature.

Savannah is not only having fun creating pictures of her favorite Paw Patrol pups, but she is also letting her imagination run wild with the different ways she utilizes the magic wand and the placement of the animated stickers, to create one of a kind pictures.  This app received 2 thumbs up from Savannah, and I know other fans of Paw Patrol will say the same, once they play with this highly entertaining Draw & Play app.  And, at only $3.99, you can't go wrong for the price, especially if you are looking to add a few new apps to your iPad or mobile device to keep the kids busy during upcoming holiday travel or family gatherings.
