Paw Patrol has taken over the lives of many families across the world since the Nickelodeon favourite hit our screens in 2013. Ryder and his team of cute, funny and brave rescue pups have taken the toy world by storm and this Christmas several Paw Patrol themed toys will be high on kids lists and the Paw Patrol Air Patroller will be one of the most popular.
The Paw Patrol Air Patroller is a ready to play toy, no assembly required, meaning less stress on Christmas morning. There are 2 items in the box, the Air Patroller Airplane, and Robo Dog, simply open the packaging and off they go.
It takes 3x AG13 batteries (the round ones) which are included and already in place. These batteries are hidden behind a screwed in hatch for safety reasons. This 15.2 x 40.6 x 36.8 cm toy is made of bright, strong, robust (toddler proof) plastic with LED lights and paw patrol stickers and is suitable from ages 3+.
There are only a few moveable parts, the cockpit door, turning engines and the propellers, meaning there are less things for them to break and cry over. Due to it being a very simple toy the manual is very brief, however, it does come in English, Italian, German, French & Spanish translation, for ease of use throughout Europe. It won’t take long for them to figure this one out themselves, so let them explore it by themselves before you have a go yourself.
There are many features to the Air Patroller once unboxed. The lights and sounds are activated by pressing the little button on the front of the handle at the top. The sounds change from Airplane to Helicopter when the engine is turned upwards which makes for great variation in imagination play. The pretty sturdy plastic LED lights are located on the wings and are only activated when the button is pressed but make for a great addition for sensory play.
Last but not least, the cockpit opens up to allow Robo-Dog to fly the patroller, simply flip it open and place Robo-Dog inside, easy. Other Paw Patrol characters are sold separately, so their favourite characters can fly the patroller too making it versatile and interactive with other toys; even Batman can fly this one.
The Paw Patrol Air Patroller is the perfect Pre School Christmas gift for any Paw Patrol fan and it is sturdy and versatile enough that it can grow with them throughout the years.
