My little man loves Paw Patrol.  He loves watching the cartoon with the adorable pups and even my girls can’t resist.  Naturally when asked to review the Paw Patrol Tumbling Towers Game from Spinmaster I jumped at the chance.  I have been trying to encourage the children to play more sociable games rather than doing things individually as it helps develop their communication skills, improve patience, develop logical thinking, help improve concentration and hopefully teach them to handle losing better – OMG I feel like the UN sometimes having to deal with the aftermath of a loss.

The game arrived and on the box I noticed it was recommended for ages 4 to 8.  Mr Squishy although just 2.5 loves to be involved in EVERYTHING! so he of course wanted in on the fun and I wasn’t going to deprive him of that.

As one would hope with a children’s game it’s pretty easy to play.  The players simply stack up the bricks making sure that there is one of each colour on each layer.  There also needs to be a gap between each brick so it isn’t too hard for the children to remove them on their turn.

The girls stacked up the bricks (there are 48 in total) which were brightly coloured and each was representative of one of the Paw Patrol Members due to the colours they wear on the show.  The red blocks – Marshal, Yellow – Rubble and Blue – Chase.

Once the girls set up the block tower Mr Squishy decided he couldn’t help himself he had to knock it down much to the dismay of the girls.  Naturally he found this hilarious.  The girls on the other hand were not so impressed so he was sent off to play with daddy in the other room so the girls could play in peace and quiet.

Once the next tower had been built the girls began to play.  The girls would throw the coloured dice that came in the pack and whatever colour it would land showing they would take the corresponding coloured brick and place it on the top.  The tower would of course eventually collapse.  This was a great game and it was hard to get the girls to go to bed the first evening they played it as they were enjoying themselves so much.  They are really enjoying playing with this and Mr Squishy is really enjoying playing building and destroying which is what we call his version of the game.

This is a great game for little ones and after a quick search I found that you can buy it for the bargain price of £5.99 on ebay so if you are off to any birthday parties soon this would make a great gift.

  1. Paw Patrol reminds me a lot of Jenga. It was a favorite when the kids were little. I swear it was always me who made the tower fall down (every, single time). Thanks for the memory .. made me smile!

  2. This looks lots of fun! I’m sure I played something similar when I was younger but I can’t for the life of me remember what it was called? It’s a great price too, like you say perfect for party presents.

  4. I love this game! plus I know that the blocks get used as road markers, houses and anything else when playing.
    As a child we used to play pick up sticks which was great fun but very fiddly for the younger ones; so this is actually better for a range of ages.
