Paw Patrol we’re on a roll!
Do you know the Paw Patrol theme tune off by heart? Well I’m guessing your little one is just as obsessed as mine, we’ve been watching Paw Patrol for years now and its something that my girls are yet to grow out of.
We were really excited when we found out we would be getting to review PAW Patrol electronic learning toys. With Zayah currently in nursery until she starts in reception next September, we are cramming in as much learning as we can – and learning starts with play!
*Disclaimer – We were very kindly sent the toy to review, all opinions are my own*
What is Paw Patrol Ryder’s Alphabet Tablet I hear you say?
This interactive first tablet encourages the child to learn while having fun with Ryder and the Pups. Ryder lights up and asks the child to find a letter, or an object, or to identify the first letter of a particular word. This develops skills like letter and early word recognition, listening and understanding, plus responding to questions.
- Encourages learning about letters, phonetic sounds and words
- Touch-sensitive screen makes exploration fun and easy to follow
- Helps with early recognition of the alphabet and spelling out simple words based on everyday objects and characters from PAW Patrol adventures
- Builds communication skills and encourages hand-eye co-ordination
What did we think of it?
My daughter Zayah (4 years old) couldn’t wait to get it out of the box which was a very promising start. Although naughty mummy didn’t realise we had no AAA batteries in the house so we had to nip out and get some before she could have a play on the interactive tablet. Once we got it up and running I was pleasantly surprised by the amount of features there were.
I particularly liked that Ryder asked Zayah to find a letter, or first letter of the particular word which I could see Zayah’s brain ticking, looking to find the answer! It definitely encourages learning with phonetic sounds and words which is very helpful for her starting in reception class next year. The tablet itself is nice and lightweight, we even took out to dinner with us one evening and it kept her entertained whilst we waited for our food.
Something I didn’t like was when it ran out of battery and I came downstairs to the strangest beeping noise which took me a good 5 minutes whilst half asleep to figure out where it was coming from, this is much like a lot of the battery powered toys that the kids have though and was my own fault for not changing the batteries sooner!
I think this interactive tablet would make a great Christmas or birthday gift for pre school aged children, especially those who love Paw Patrol as much as my children do. – And for £18 in Argos, I think its pretty fairly priced for the activities that are included within the tablet. Don’t forget to pick up some AAA batteries to go with it though, you’ll need 3!
