Totally “Pawesome” Paw Patrol products for the kids!

My kids discovered Nick Jr’s Paw Patrol last year and as a mommy, I approve!  Paw Patrol is an animated show that takes place in Adventure Bay, with several lovable characters.  Each episode features a rescue mission involving teamwork among the pups.  This year at the Illinois State Fair, we had the opportunity to see characters in the Roll Patrol Tour.  Alex and Evan had so much fun!  (check it out our IL State Fair Roll Patrol photos here)

While I prepare for my youngest’s 4th birthday, I’m going to share with you a few of the cute Paw Patrol items I’ve come across…and possibly some of the adorable party ideas!

The Paw Patrol Look-out Playset could be the center of your child’s Paw Patrol universe.  There is a rotating periscope, working elevator, and Chase with his police SUV.  You can add to this set with additional characters available on Amazon, at Walmart, and several other retailers.  This set looks totally pawesome!  (Sorry, I couldn’t resist!)


I can definitely see my boys zipping around the yard next summer with this fun Paw Patrol Water Rescue Pack!  There are different ones for the different characters but Marshall is a favorite in our house so I can’t help but share this one!


Ok so this is something we already own because I couldn’t wait until Evan’s birthday.  It’s a Paw Patrol character watch!  He’s learning to tell time and he feels like such a big boy with his watch.


As a parent, all I have to say is that you can’t have enough sheets for a toddler or young child.  A set with your child’s favorite character is a great way to make bed time fun.  Although they’re not a typical birthday gift, the Paw Patrol Ruff Ruff Rescue Sheets are on my shopping list!


Seven wintery rescue missions can be found on the Paw Patrol Winter Rescues DVD. I think I know what we’ll be watching during our snow days!


Character Band-aids are my favorite way to help the boys settle down when they get an owie.  And you can be sure they get a kick out of it when I use one of their Band-aids :)


I just love this Paw Patrol Marshall Hoodie!  It is so adorable and I can’t wait to see how excited Evan is when he sees his.  Marshall is his favorite character and he is going to love running around in his hoodie.


And last, but not least, Puppy Birthday to You is definitely my favorite find!  I can’t wait to pull it out and read it to Evan on his birthday.


In the mean time, check out some fun Paw Patrol videos and online games, and even some fun Paw Patrol themed Fall Mazes on Nick Jr!  If you read this before Halloween, you can even enjoy these 5 Halloween Printables.
