After opening the box and setting up the Paw Patroller Lookout Vehicle I was immediately impressed at how big this unit actually is. With the front cab opened up and the back ramp down the entire unit measures approximately 38��� in length by 12 1/2” high. It is generously sized and allows three of my Grandchildren to play with the Paw Patroller at the same time. This unit comes with only one vehicle and Ryder. Be aware that you can purchase any, and, or, all of the six other Paw Patrol Pup Vehicles at additional cost. I knew my Grandchildren would be excited to play with this unit when they visit, so I purchased two more vehicles at my local Walmart. Would have liked to buy more, but that was all that was left on the shelf. Be forewarned that this is obviously a 'popular' toy since I found three of the Paw Patrol Vehicles were already 'out of stock' on-line at Walmart as of this writing.
The 'fun' features of this Paw Patroller, which will entertain your little ones for hours, include a vehicle truck cab, which opens up at the top and can hold up to four Action Pups; When the 'trailer' unit is opened there is a folding support leg, which stabilizes the upper level of the command center; It has drive ramps on the side and at the rear of the trailer, which accommodate the vehicles entering, exiting, and using the lift up to the upper level command center; The Paw Patroller can easily hold six Paw Patrol vehicles altogether; Little hands can easily operate the vehicle lift 'up and down' with the folding, red lift handle; The vehicle lift 'locks' into place on the upper level, but easily 'unlocks' to take a vehicle down to the exiting ramps; Various sounds can be activated by pressing the red button on the inside of the command center and pressing the Paw Patrol insignia on the outside of the vehicle; The five sounds include several warning alarms/siren, truck engine running, and truck horn, and the unit comes with three, AG 13 (computer sized) batteries already installed; This entire twelve-wheeled truck and trailer vehicle is made of quality plastic materials, which appear to be rugged enough to hold up for a long period of time. The only negative I found in construction is that the turning radius of the truck cab is very limited, and, takes a lot of space when played with on the floor as a moving truck. However, it is primarily designed to be played in the 'opened' position.
My three Grandchildren played with this complimentary Paw Patroller for hours. They loved it and enjoyed pretending all kinds of Paw Patrol adventures. Because they had so much fun I am going to collect the rest of the Paw Patrol Vehicles to complete the set. Now, we have another 'Grandchildren Magnet' to keep them returning to visit Grandpa and Grandma. If you are looking for a special toy or gift for children, who are Paw Patrol fans, then, this toy is a 'must-have'! I give this Paw Patroller five stars for allowing children to make-believe the many Paw Patrol escapades they have watched on TV and use their terrific imaginations.
