“Excuuuuuuse me! Thank you Paw Patrol!”

I’m not even sure if this is something the crew says on Paw Patrol, but my boys say this to each other and laugh uncontrollably. Usually over dinner, between bites of chicken nuggets or hot dogs. You know, the normal toddler fare.

It’s the cartoon the boys bonded over, the one everyone understands and enjoys. Logan loves Chase and Christian is a Marshall fan.

For those of you who have kids with a couple of years in between them, you know that it’s sometimes difficult to land on a channel or YouTube video that everybody is happy about at any given moment.



From the Pup-Pup Boogie to the Lookout, they know every bit of this show and it’s that great go-to when we’re making that dinner or getting anything critical done that requires parental concentration and a break from the kids.  Not surgery, of course, more like taking a business call.

So we went into a tailspin, in a good way, when we found out the PAW Patrol Tour was coming to Central Ohio during the Ohio State Fair. The tour rolls into Columbus and stays July 29th-31st. It has an 18-wheel semi-truck PAW Patroller which opens up and you find a life-sized PAW Patrol Headquarters that kids can walk through with their family.  There are interactive games, and my guys will go crazy over the life-sized Lookout Tower.  They even have working periscopes.



“The PAW Patrol Roll Patrol Road Tour is the ultimate immersive experience for PAW Patrol fans of all ages,” said Tara Tucker, VP Global Marketing Communications, Spin Master Ltd.

Apparently, there are two new segments launching this fall on the show: Jungle Rescue and Roll Patrol.  PAW Patrol fans will be able to take pictures in the Jungle area on the tour with a new pup tracker and also ride on life-size Roll Patrol racers around a track. At the end of the experience, the kids can take a photo with PAW Patrol pups. Chase, Marshall, Skye, and Rubble will be there. Not sure where Zuma is headed!

What we also love about this tour is that it will support Canine Companions! It’s a non-profit that helps people with disabilities by providing highly trained assistance dogs.

I’m giving away a PAW Pass of 6 to a lucky winning family.  Just share your funniest PAW Patrol moment with your kids in the comments below.  (For me, that would be the moment when they start yelling the “Excuse Me” bit at the dinner table.) And then go to “Sign Up for Updates” and share your email address on my home page: You’ll find the section on the right hand side.

Make sure you enter before midnight on July 21st! I’ll announce the winner the morning of the 22nd and your PAW Patrol Passes will be sent right to your home, on the double  😀
