My Thoughts:

My girls only started watching this show at the beginning of this year after attending a friend's birthday party, where the theme was Paw Patrol.  In the background, the mom had the show playing for kids to enjoy when they weren't running around playing.  My youngest was the first to take notice of this fun animated series, which airs daily on Nick Jr., and stars six heroic pups, Chase, Rocky, Zuma, Rubbie, Skye and Marshall, who are led by a 10-year old boy named Ryder.  Whenever someone in the community needs help, they call on Ryder and the pups to help save the day.  

Each fun-filled episode deals with the Ryder and the pups working together to help protect Adventure bay by completing a particular rescue mission.  What makes this CG-action adventure animated series so much fun to watch, in addition to the cute dogs and story line, is that each of the 6 rescue pups have their own unique skill and personality.  

Even though Marshall is the clumsy one of the bunch, he is always there to lend a hand and is the leader of the pack.  Rubbie, the English bulldog can skateboard and snowboard, and is also a great diggger.  Rocky, who is Savannah's favorite, is a mixed breed, who loves to recycle and will find multiple ways to use different tools.  He is the creative one of the bunch.  Bella's personal favorite is Skye, a smart cockapoo who is dressed in pink.  She has her own personal helicopter and flies around lending a hand in the sky -- that is when she is not using the pair of wings she stores in her pup pack.  Zuma, a chocolate Lab is the diver and water pup of the bunch and has his own hovercraft.  So, if a rescue mission deals with water, Zuma is front and center ready to lend a hand.  And, last but not least is Chase, who is a cute German shepherd.  He is my favorite, as he is dressed as a police officer and drives around in a police truck, using a megaphone.  My dad was a police officer and many family friends were in this honorable profession, so I am always partial to police officers in shows, even if they are dogs.

As you can see, each of the six Paw Patrol pups, along with tech savvy Ryder can combine their unique personalities and skills to save the day and bring calm to Adventure Bay.  Each of the episodes that are included on this new DVD, as well as the ones that air daily on Nick Jr. will have your child not only engaged from start to finish, but also learning about teamwork, perseverance, the importance of friendship and treating each other with respect, as well as being a good citizen.  Through the use of "Watch and Learn" preschoolers can follow along as the rescue pups use critical thinking skills to successful solve problems and complete rescue mission.  By watching, they in turn learn and can apply the skills seen on the show into their personal lives to solve day to day problems.

Even though my girls were late to the game in finding out about this show, they have since caught up by watching repeat episodes, and don't miss an episode.  And, each and every morning when they wake, they start their day by watching a recorded Paw Patrol episode. :-)

If you have a Paw Patrol fan in your home, you will definitely want to pick up a copy of this new DVD release, of what I hope will be a long list of releases for this popular Nick Jr. animated series onto DVD.  My girls can't get enough of the Paw Patrol Pups in the 10 episodes that make up 117 minutes of this DVD, and I know your kids will love it, too!
