No job is too big...No pup is too small, and now the pups of Adventure Bay have a new mission! PAW Patrol has teamed-up with Canine Companions for Independence®, a non-profit organization that enhances the lives of people with disabilities with highly trained assistance dogs. Together they'll be raising awareness and funds for placing specially-trained assistance dogs with the people who need them. Check out the new PSA below!
Zag's MIRACULOUS: TALES OF LADYBUG & CAT NOIR continues to build an audience through regular airings on Nickelodeon, and for those wishing to enjoy the heroic adventures at home, the folks at Shout!

Plus, we've got some free printable masks so that you and yours can live out some MIRACULOUS fantasies...
If your house is anything like ours, then PAW Patrol is probably a huge deal. The tales of Ryder and the Pups saving the day in Adventure Bay have become legendary, with a symbiotic relationship between the Nick Jr. TV series and the expansive (and growing) line of toys from Spin Master. In fact, I think that the PAW Patrol line of figures, vehicles and playsets is one of the best toy lines of the past decade. In the summer of 2015, during my last visit to The Step2 Company's Ohio headquarters as a Brand Ambassador, I sat-in on a meeting in which some third-party licenses were presented as potential new toys - a few of which already had some hand-drawn mock-ups. One of them was PAW Patrol. Now, over a year later, the Step2 PAW Patrol Lookout Climber is a reality - released as a Toys "R" Us Exclusive for the fall of 2016, and an early pick for my 2016 Holiday Wish Guide!
From the response that I've received from my 2016 PAW Patrol Toy Fair Preview, I know just how much all of you love the residents of Adventure Bay (it's A LOT). As we roll into the 2016 Holiday Toy Season, the big event for Spin Master's PAW Patrol is the September 16th debut of "Tracker Joins the Pups!," a special one-hour PAW Patrol event on Nickelodeon - one backed by a full line of new toys, most of which were previewed here. While the new assortment of JUNGLE RESCUE toys is expansive, there's also the new ROLL PATROL collection and the much-anticipated ZOOMER MARSHALL... but that's not all. ZOOMER SKYE and ZOOMER EVEREST are coming to stores as retail exclusives, and the limited-edition JUNGLE PATROLLER is rolling into Sam's Club locations as we speak.
The annual Power Rangers Morphicon took place this past weekend in Pasadena, California, and out of the fan event came quite a bit of news straight from the creative forces responsible for Saban's Power Rangers franchise.
