Our rating: 4 stars
Paw Patrol LookoutFrom the Paw Patrol TV show, here’s the Paw Patrol Lookout HQ playset that looks just like the one your kids have seen on the screen. The periscope turns, the elevator works and there are lights and sounds. Chase can watch the area from the top, and when he sees a situation, he can race down the slide and jump in his police cruiser to fix it!

But the ratings aren’t great, so what’s the problem? Let’s take a closer look.

Paw Patrol Lookout Playset Review

The Paw Patrol animated television series has been very popular with preschoolers since it first aired on Nickelodeon in the USA in August of 2013. It’s all about six celebrity puppies with a mission to help out – Chase, Rubble, Rocky, Zuma, Marshall, and Skye. Their leader is Ryder, a tech-savvy boy aged 10.

Preschoolers can learn some valuable life lessons while they watch the cute and funny puppies race around solving problems. The combination of puppies and emergency vehicles is obviously a winner with little kids, and Nickelodeon had a hit on their hands from the start with Paw Patrol. It wasn’t long before Paw Patrol toys began to appear, so kids could have the stars of the show in their own homes.

In the show, the puppies and their human leader have their headquarters in a look-out tower, which this playset brings to life. The lookout tower includes a twisting slide, an elevator, a periscope for them to keep an eye on what’s happening in the neighborhood. Along with this you get Chase, the police pup, and a police SUV cruiser for him to travel in.

Paw Patrol Lookout with childThe Paw Patrol Lookout toy comes in bright colors to appeal to preschool kids. It looks just like the one in the show, which kids will appreciate. The periscope rotates all the way around, and the slide is designed to get Chase to the ground fast, so he can race off in his waiting vehicle when he’s needed.

If you press the big Paw Patrol badge on the middle of the lookout tower, you get lights and sound effects from the show. Figures of the other characters are available to order separately, and your child will love having any more of them that you can get. The whole team will fit on the look-out level of the playset together, if you get them.

The Paw Patrol Lookout playset does require assembly, but it’s simple and quick to do – less than 15 minutes, according to some customers. If you visit Amazon through our link below, you’ll see that there are some negative reviews saying the slide kept detaching from the tower. Nickelodeon customer services have said that they’ve fixed this problem in the last few weeks, and more recent reviews are much more positive. If you do have this issue, some parents have fixed it easily with glue.

Young fans of the show will love this Paw Patrol toy. Parents will be happy to know the playset won’t fill the whole room, and it’s very well priced, at least in the USA. We’re waiting to get the same prices in the UK – it may have arrived by the time you read this, check the price below.
