Toy FairUPDATE: Check THIS out! The PAW Patrol Lookout Climber!

Spin Master has really done a fantastic job with their PAW Patrol line, building out a world around the hit Nick Jr. series, and releasing some really great toys to support it. Undoubtedly one of the big favorites here at Rock Father HQ, the PAW Patrol toys are not just appreciated by The Rock Daughters, but by yours truly as well. They're well-made, fun, and there's just a spirit of adventure built into them. With the recent AIR RESCUE episode helping to launch a small sub-line this past month (Finley keeps asking for the Air Patroller), Spin Master entered the North American International Toy Fair armed with a full portfolio of new toys - figures, vehicles and playsets - along with some new offerings that support some different play patterns. What adventures lie ahead in 2016? PAW Patrol is going Medieval at some point, but they're also having a Jungle Adventure, with a new pup named Tracker joining the crew, along with his human friend, Carlos. Let's take a peek...
