I still remember the first time I saw PAW Patrol. I took our oldest to a playdate at the home of a child we'd met at the local library. The series was new, the toys weren't even out yet, and the playdate became exceptionally awkward when the mother laid into me with a hard-press pitch for some MLM scheme. Our children never played together again, but after picking up The Rock Daughters' first PAW Patrol toys at the Chicago Toy & Game Fair, a love of the pups was born.
According to The Globe and Mail, there's a movie in the works, so I'd like to just throw this out there - if it's live-action, I'm available to act or direct. In fact, I'd pitch Zac Efron as Ryder, and suggest a Rusty Rivets cameo to lay the groundwork for an entire Spin Master cinematic universe. Read more about how PAW Patrol came to be, here.
