Prior to receiving this magazine I had no idea what Paw Patrol was. Fellow Mums have mentioned it in the past, and I’ve smiled, nodded, and pretended to know what they were talking about…! But, even though we’re a CBeebies household, it sounded like the sort of programme Busby would enjoy. I mean, dogs, missions, and lots of adventures along the way? It’s ideal for her.
Also Busby loves magazines, so when we were offered the first issue of the brand new Paw Patrol magazine to review, I thought she would enjoy exploring this new world.
The magazine is aimed at Preschoolers and is full of exciting activities to do, both autonomously and with parents!
There are stories throughout, puppies to cut out, and it comes with three gifts: a Chase hat, badge and torch, which have been a huge hit, and welcome new additions to the dressing up box! Unlike toys you sometimes receive from magazines, these are large enough for H-Bear not to choke on if he happens across them on the floor.
The magazine also contains stickers, which are sadly fairly underwhelming in number (just over 20). Busby’s favourite thing about magazines are the stickers, and consequently they get used very quickly, so these didn’t last more than 15 minutes!
I’ve really enjoyed talking through the magazine with Busby, and it’s been a fun activity for us both to participate in together. There are some fab little education sections, which are the perfect level for Busby – and she even surprised me with her understanding of opposites!
The Paw Patrol magazine is published monthly by Egmont, costs £3.99 per issue, and can be found in most leading supermarkets. Despite using up all of the stickers within the first 15 minutes of opening, Busby has kept returning to the magazine, so it’s proving good value for money, and the toys have been fantastic for imagination play.
