There's a new way for kids to save the day in Adventure Bay, with the PAW Patrol Zoomer Pups from Spin Master! While many folks have seen Zoomer Marshall out there, as I previously reported here on THE ROCK FATHER Magazine, Spin Master also produced a pair of exclusives - with Zoomer Skye available at Toys "R" Us, and Zoomer Everest available at Target.  We had Marshall and Skye sent to us for review here at Rock Father HQ, and what better way is there to show-off some of 2016's hottest holiday toys than to show them in-action - being played with? Take a look...

Little Finley is our resident PAW Patrol expert here in the Toy Testing Facility at Rock Father HQ™,  her bedroom decked-out in graphics straight from Adventure Bay. Over the past few weeks, her Zoomers have become quite aclimated as well, each boasting over 150 sounds and phrases from the show, along with 80 missions that are accessible by pressing their badges. There's so many things that these pups say and do, we probably haven't even heard all of them yet.

Rock Father-Exclusive Zoomer Finley: One-of-a-Kind!

Skye often asks kids to activate or retract the wings on her jetpack when starting or completing a mission, while Marshall sounds the alarm and asks kids to activate and fire his spring-loaded "water cannons" (they're just plastic - no real water) to help save the day. While both of our girls love when their Zoomer Pups dance, one of my favorite features is their motion-activated "follow" function. 

We've had several Zoomer animals over the past few years, and as the technology improves, so does the fun. Pairing the familiar world of Nick Jr's PAW Patrol with the interactive action of Zoomer makes for a winning combination and a featured pick in my 2016 Holiday Wish Guide.
