For several years now, my son's favourite programme has been Paw Patrol; a television series which follows the adventures of the inhabitants of Adventure Bay and their frequent rescuers – eight pups and their ten year old leader, Ryder.
I've often wondered about the sense of having a town's emergency services completely staffed by a team of dogs, and my husband frequently worries that Ryder's parents seem to be absentee. But then when the mayor has a pet chicken (called Chickaletta) who lives in her handbag, I think this is one of those shows that shouldn't be analysed too much.
However, our favourite pup is the very loveable dalmation Marshall who is in charge of the fire and rescue division of Paw Patrol. We were recently sent a 'Zoomer' version of Marshall to review, a type of toy that we haven't come across before.
