EDITOR'S REVIEW
OVERALL EDITOR'S RATING:
What It Is

Now preschoolers can get behind the wheel and drive to their own Paw Patrol missions with the Paw Patrol Pups to the Rescue Driver. This toy looks just like the front of Ryder's ATV, complete with handlebars that kids can really steer, side mirrors, and five Pup Buttons. Turn the dog bone switch to turn on the toy, and then turn the mode selector dial to one of three play modes. 

In ATV mode, turn the handlebars to hear what direction you're going (“left!” or “right!”), and press the Pup Buttons to hear more about the pups and how they can help solve the mission.

In Hovercraft mode, kids will hear Ryder ask them to call a specific Paw Patrol character, and kids must press the Pup Button that matches that character. Eventually, kids will advance to another level where Ryder asks them to call two characters, and kids must press those Pup Buttons in the correct order.

In Snowmobile mode, kids must answer Ryder's questions by turning the handlebars, honking the horn, turning on the lights, or pressing the correct Pup Button. Questions or instructions include, “Which pup loves to dig into construction?” and “Beep the horn five times to let the penguin know we're coming.”

The toy also has a Ryder Button that kids can press to hear the Paw Patrol theme song, learn about traffic safety (“Always wear your seatbelt for safety!”), and hear Ryder call the pups to action: “Whenever there's trouble, just yelp for help!” 

Is It Fun?
This toy is going to inspire a lot of imaginative roleplay for preschool Paw Patrol fans. They'll really like that the toy is designed to look like part of Ryder's ATV, a vehicle they will be very familiar with from watching the show, so it feels like they too are riding the ATV just like Ryder. And with three modes of play, there's a lot for kids to do, plus they'll be practicing their matching skills, counting, directions, and more through the play.
