What Makes the Paw Patrol Zoomer Marshall Interactive Pup a Good Buy?
Zoomer Marshall comes equipped with 2 water cannons, 1 reference guide and 1 instruction booklet. This Zoomer model has been named to the Toys “R” Us Fabulous 15 Hot Holiday Toy List for 2016.
Paw Patrol started out as a Nickelodeon animated series for kids in 2013. The success of the series, starring a tech-savvy boy named Ryder and a group of 6 rescue dogs, meant that a line of licensed toys and games surfaced almost immediately.
Zoomer Marshall is one of several Paw Patrol toys that are interactive. For children 3 years and older, this Zoomer pup performs missions, walks and “talks”, dances and performs other actions that your child controls.
One of the neatest tricks he performs is following just like a real puppy dog, after your child gives a wave of his hand. Children familiar with the Paw Patrol series or toys are prime candidates for this 2016 holiday gift that is sure to be in short supply, so get yours early.
By the way, Zoomer Marshall moves well on carpet and grass, unlike some similarly priced robotic pet toys. The price tag means that you can certainly find less expensive gifts this holiday season. However, for Paw Patrol lovers and children that love animals, Zoomer Marshall makes a great dog replacement that will never chew on your furniture, doesn’t shed, and won’t have an “accident” for you to deal with.
The company also makes a robot chimp that “stands and balances on 2 feet better than a toddler”, as well as a robot dinosaur, robot kitties and other interactive, robotic animals. Paw Patrol Zoomer Skye makes the perfect complementary gift, designed with similar interactive capabilities.
