THIS COMPETITION IS NOW CLOSED. The winner is: CHRIS L OOSTHUIZEN! Congrats.
This is the true story of how I won the Mom of the Year Award. It started with an email from Just Fun Kidz, asking if Ryan and Oliver wanted to review the new Paw Patrol Zoomer Marshall on their YouTube channel, The Mighty Squish. And it ended, well… it hasn’t ended at all, really because the boys have been playing with their pet non-stop for weeks now. Even Travis the Lionheart has been curious about the pup that has been roaming the house!
If you’re looking for a Christmas present that lasts longer than it does for the kids to rip the wrapping paper off the box, then Zoomer Marshall is a good candidate. Apart from singing the Paw Patrol song – which is compulsory, really, ha ha – he also has 150 sayings programmed into him. There is a sensor in front (I think, otherwise it’s just hocus-pocus) that has Marshall following you around the house on his missions. Here’s the full run-down of his features:
- He moves and acts just like a real pup, saying 150+ real Paw Patrol phrases and sounds
- He has 80+ interactive missions and tricks, including performing the Pup Pup Boogie and Paw Patrol Theme
- You can team up with Zoomer Marshall to help find Chickeletta, put out runaway campfire coals, and more
- Open up Marshall’s transforming Pup Pack to activate and launch his spring-loaded water cannons
The boys have learned to push down on Marshall’s head or tap him on his fire marshall’s badge to get him to do different actions. And of course, shooting the water cannons is their favourite thing to do. I’ve walked into various rooms in the house to find that they’ve built all manner of targets and obstacles for Marshall to shoot at and navigate around.
I’m not surprised that Zoomer Marshall made his way onto the Toys “R” Us 2016 Holiday Hot Toy List and I’ll bet Father Christmas will be stuffing plenty of stocking with Zoomer toys in the coming weeks.
Here are the boys playing with Marshall in our bedroom the other day. We dragged all their mattresses into the master bedroom because it’s the only one with an aircon in the house and we were in the middle of a heatwave!
