If we didn’t have grand children, there’s no doubt I wouldn’t know that “Paw Patrol” is a Canadian borne animated series about the escapades of a boy named Rynder.
Rynder leads a pack of rescue dogs with names like Chase and Marshall in the seaside community of Adventure Bay.
It’s only because our 3-year old son Evan is a huge fan of the show that Grandma Kathy Evan and I were in the audience for the first of 2 live “Paw Patrol” shows at the Civic Center in Lima on Wednesday.
Though I won’t give you any details of the show plot lest it might spoil it for you, I will say that the preschoolers parents and grandparents in the crowd seemed to enjoy it and responded well to the actors and actresses who brought the characters to life.
I was left with several observations:
1. The show of 2 30-minute segments with time in between to buy the show related memorabilia in plentiful supply was just about the perfect length for the kids.
2. The Civic Center auditorium floor is immaculately cleaned. I know that because I was sent crawling on it twice to retrieve Pom Poms Evan was given when we arrived.
3. I’ve added acting in a “Paw Patrol” show as one of the more difficult things any aspiring actor or actress could be called on to do.
4. I’ve learned during pre-show commercials that Nickelodeon, which is the “Paw Patrol” network host and operates a resort in the Dominican Republic. Sounds like a real swinging place to me.
We had a great time getting to enjoy a grandparents day out yesterday, but I think we’ll leave Evan’s first visit to Chuck-E-Cheese to his mom and dad.
That’s the way I see it.
