Ryder summons Marshall, Chase, Skye, Rubble, Rocky, Zuma, and the newest pup, Everest, to rescue Mayor Goodway and to run the race in her place.”

Parents, kids line up to meet favourite cartoon characters on Family Day

It was hard to keep a leash on the excitement at Tecumseh Mall on Mornday, when hundreds of kids got a chance to meet their favourite canine cartoon characters.

Three dogs from the Canadian animated children’s series Paw Patrol were stationed at different parts of the mall to meet fans during the “Paw-sitively Fun-Filled Family Day” event. The festivities coincided with National Love Your Pet Day.

The Paw Patrol TV show follows 10-year-old Ryder and his league of rescue dogs as they save lives and prevent disaster in Adventure Bay. It airs on TVO Kids and Télé-Québec.

Alysha Sutherland brought her 18-month-old son Maverick to meet the characters from one of their favourite shows.

“We saw it on Facebook, and we were very excited,” Sutherland said. “We love Paw Patrol.”

The event started at 12:30 p.m., but some parents like Lisa Pikul lined up early. Pikul said she and her daughter Eva were waiting in line for almost 40 minutes before getting to meet Marshall, the firefighter dog. Afterwards, Eva was bouncing with excitement.

Many kids came decked out in Paw Patrol gear, including Mason and Hunter Smith. The four-year-old twins love the characters Skye and Chase — the pilot and police dogs on the show. Skye and Chase were also at the mall posing for photos with fans.

Those in attendance also received a ballot to enter the Paw Patrol grand prize draw, which includes four tickets to the Paw Patrol Live Show at the Sony Centre in Toronto on Feb. 25.

The Windsor/Essex County Humane Society was also at Tecumseh Mall to promote its services to the long lines of animal lovers.

 

“It’s very busy today,” said Emma Truswell-Amlin, events and community relations co-ordinator at the humane society. “There’s a lineup all the way down the mall.”

Truswell-Amlin brought Louis, a white rabbit, and Violet and Lavender, two guinea pigs, to meet the families waiting in line.

“It’s a great way to promote our adoption programs and birthday parties,” said Truswell-Amlin. “There are lots of ways to get kids involved.”

14 Times ‘PAW Patrol’ Made Me Question My Life Choices

PAW Patrol has taken over my life. Its songs have infected my brain and I have learned the unique features of each character, including but certainly not limited to: their vehicles, colors, catchphrases, and individual backstory. I couldn’t even escape its clutches on holiday in Portugal recently; every gift shop had a knock-off version of the cuddly pack of rescue dogs and their caretaker. In other words, the moments PAW Patrol made me question my life choices are seemingly endless.

If you haven’t yet been tortured with this particular cartoon, let me break it down for you while simultaneously feeling ridiculously jealous of you. I mean, how did you escape the clutches of this television show while parenting? (Don’t answer that. I do not want to know.)

PAW Patrol is a Canadian show enjoying international popularity since its conception in 2013. It’s about a little boy, Ryder, who lives alone (let that sink in) with a bunch of dogs who, together, perform rescue services for the town of Adventure Bay. Each dog has their own cool rescue vehicle, except for poor Rocky, who drives a garbage truck. (Tough break, kid). The town has a mayor (refreshingly, a woman of color) but rather than run the town herself, she gets on her smartphone (heavy reliance on technology in this show) and calls for Ryder and “his team of pups” to help with every problem imaginable.

There are more than a few times I have been left scratching my head while watching an episode, wondering if the life choices I’ve made that have lead me to this point in my life are the “right” ones. I guess, as with everything in life, you just have to take the good and the bad together when it comes to parenting. Ugh.

On Saturday, fire dog Marshall and police pup Chase swapped exciting rescue missions in Adventure Bay for an extra special appearance in Shrewsbury, where adoring fans had the chance to meet the TV heroes.

At intervals throughout the day, the popular Nickelodeon characters brought smiles to hundreds of children’s faces, with everything from PAW Patrol storytelling and photographs to animal crafts and treasure hunts.

“Our visitors had a fantastic time with Chase and Marshall on Saturday,” said Shrewsbury Shopping Centers Manager Kevin Lockwood. “We are so pleased that the characters’ visit proved to be so popular. We had a brilliant response from our shoppers, who told us how much they enjoyed meeting the PAW Patrol stars and that it made for a great Saturday at the center. “

During their appearances, we had hundreds of parents and their children lining the balconies at the Darwin Center to catch a glimpse of Chase and Marshall. The little ones were in awe whilst listening to brilliant PAW Patrol stories, before having the chance to meet and take photographs with their favorite doggy character.”

As part of the PAW Patrol fun, Shrewsbury Shopping’s Pride Hill also hosted free craft workshops. “It was great to see so many children enjoying themselves,” Kevin said. “They took part in doggy mask making, where they could make their very own mask to look like Chase or Marshall. Plus, they had the chance to win sweet treats by completing our PAW trail, which ran through the Darwin and Pride Hill Centres.”

To get everyone in the mood for the special visit, Shrewsbury Shopping launched a social media competition on its Facebook page, which saw more than 400 people enter. The lucky winner, Jess Berkeley, took home some fabulous PAW Patrol toys from The Entertainer.

“We are absolutely delighted that our PAW Patrol event was so popular,” said Kevin, “and we’re just thrilled that everyone enjoyed it as much as we did.”

PAW Patrol’s Chase and Marshall visit The Harvey Centre in Harlow

Chase and Marshall from Nickelodeon’s PAW Patrol made a special visit to The Harvey Centre in Harlow for the summer holiday Kids’ Club.

The heroic pups visited during story time sessions and told the children the tales of their adventures.

There was also face painting and a balloon modeller to keep everyone entertained.

The Harvey Centre’s Kids’ Club is free to join and provides families with free seasonal activities throughout the year, so it is a great way to get the kids out of the house and keep them entertained without draining your bank balance.

PAW Patrol: Brave Heroes, Big Rescues

pawpatrol

PAW Patrol is one of Nick Jr.’s most popular new shows aimed at the kindergarten and elementary school set, packed with all the harmless action and cornball jokes that kids and immature DVD reviewers can’t help but snicker at. Brave Heroes, Big Rescues is the fifth themed collection of PAW Patrol episodes, and it doesn’t really change anything about the show’s formula or characters. Most episodes go like this: the six PAW Patrol canines (klutzy firefighter Marshall, aquatic expert Zuma, construction oaf Rubble, police officer Chase, recycling guru Rocky, and high-flying Skye) kill time until a citizen yelps for help, while ten-year old handler Ryder waits back at high-tech HQ with a curiously accurate animated breakdown of the situation before sending his pups to the rescue. At no point is it explained how their operation is funded, or why Marshall can heat up the siren on his fire engine to look for a lost backpack.

As with past volumes (including the last one, Meet Everest) this 92-minute collection feels a little skimpy. Six episodes are included here: “Pups Save Jake”, “Pups Save the Parade”, “Pups Save a Mer-Pup”, “Pups Save a Friend”, “Pups Save a Stowaway”, and “Pups Bark With Dinosaurs”, all of which originally aired as part of the show’s second season during 2014-15. They’re presented more or less in random broadcast order, and the newest of the bunch (“Pups Bark With Dinosaurs”, one of two “double-length” or 22-minute episodes) is over six months old already. That’s odd, considering PAW Patrol is a few months into its third season and this loose collection of episodes has no obvious theme that would prevent newer episodes from making the cut. Either way, the real first-world problem here is that four of the included six episodes are standard 11-minute shorts, which brings down the “bang for your buck” value of this disc. A lesser kids’ show probably wouldn’t get away with it, but $15 for 90 minutes of entertainment is a stiff price for all but the most enthusiastic fans. Aren’t poor parents shelling out enough for the toys already?

After a few ads, warnings, and logos, Paramount’s DVD opens with colorful menu designs that are easy to use…but honestly, do we really need four separate selection screens for seven episodes? This one-disc release arrives in an eco-friendly blue keepcase with a matching slipcover and two promotional inserts. No bonus features are included.
