From the response that I’ve received from my 2016 PAW Patrol Toy Fair Preview, I know just how much all of you love the residents of Adventure Bay (it’s A LOT). As we roll into the 2016 Holiday Toy Season, the big event for Spin Master’s PAW Patrol is the September 16th debut of “Tracker Joins the Pups!,” a special one-hour PAW Patrol event on Nickelodeon – one backed by a full line of new toys, most of which were previewed here. While the new assortment of JUNGLE RESCUE toys is expansive, there’s also the new ROLL PATROL collection and the much-anticipated ZOOMER MARSHALL… but that’s not all. ZOOMER SKYE and ZOOMER EVEREST are coming to stores as retail exclusives, and the limited-edition JUNGLE PATROLLER is rolling into Sam’s Club locations as we speak.
PAW Patrol Jungle Patroller (Walmart/Sam’s Club Exclusive)
Last year’s PAW Patroller (reviewed here) was one of 2015’s best toys, and it’s one that’s held-up to daily play in the year that’s followed. This year there’s a variant edition known as the Jungle Patroller – essentially a repaint/repackage to match Fall 2016’s JUNGLE RESCUE motif. While this has been marked as a Walmart Exclusive, one of our friends picked one up at Sam’s Club last week.
“Calling all pups to the Jungle Patroller! The Jungle Patroller is the ultimate rescue vehicle and is perfect for making sure that the PAW Patrol team can get to new jungle adventures. Kids can drive their PAW Patrol vehicles in and head out together for a brand new adventure. The Jungle Patroller comes with Ryder and his ATV vehicle and can hold 3 PAW Patrol vehicles inside and can display 6 vehicles when open. You can patrol just like the pups on the show when you hear the PAW Patroller’s authentic PAW Patrol sound effects. Together, your child’s imagination will be lit up with pup inspired rescue missions full of friendship, teamwork and bravery. The PAW Patrol is on a roll with the Jungle Patroller!”
If your kids don’t already have a PAW Patroller, or if you’d like to add another truck to the fleet, pick this one up.
