The PAW Patrol pups know how to mix fun and responsibility in this new DVD, PAW Patrol: Sports Day! available on August 2! Everyone's favorite rescue pups are back in action in six exciting, sports-themed adventures and rescues. This DVD contains many adventures, including Ryder and Marshall forming a basketball team to help Mayor Goodway, Everest snowboarding to make a daring rescue and the Pups using their brand-new Air Patroller to find friends in need. There's no denying the Pups know how to be brave and have fun! Produced by Nickelodeon Home Entertainment and distributed by Paramount Home Media Distribution, PAW Patrol: Sports Day! joins the rest of the PAW Patrol releases as the hottest preschool TV DVD franchise on the market, and will be available on DVD August 2 for the suggested retail price of $14.99.
 
PAW Patrol: Sports Day! includes the following episodes:
  • Pups Save a Basketball Game - Mayor Goodway needs a basketball team, so she calls Ryder and the PAW Patrol for help. The pups become the Adventure Bay All-Stars and they'll need everyone, including a reluctant Marshall, to pitch in and help win one for Adventure Bay.
  • Pup-Fu! - The PAW Patrol and the mischievous kittens from Mayor Humdinger's Kit-tastrophe Crew are both competing for their martial arts belts when they come across an ancient scroll that holds all the secrets. Mayor Humdinger steals the scroll and the PAW Patrol is called upon to find and return it back to Sensei Yumi.
  • Pups Save the Mayor's Race - It's the annual Mayor's Race and Mayor Goodway is determined to beat the cheating and devious Mayor Humdinger. Mayoral contestants need to row a boat, swim and run a foot race to the finish line. The pups need to help Mayor Goodway train for the race and clean up Mayor Humdingers' disasters.
  • Pups Save a Snowboard Competition - Jake and Everest are excited for the big Snowboard Competition, until they look outside and see the course is completely buried under a blanket of snow. The rescue pups help clear the course and rescue the Kit-tastrophe crew kittens who veer off-course and fall off a cliff. Everest uses her grappling hook to lower Ryder down the edge of the cliff and her snowboard jet pulls them back up to safety.
  • Pups Save the Soccer Game - When Mayor Humdinger challenges the Adventure Bay team to a soccer match, Ryder and the PAW Patrol are called in to play. The PAW Patrol players start strong but a series of mysterious mishaps jeopardize their team's victory. The pups must work as a team to overcome some dirty tricks by Mayor Humdinger and pull out a win.
  • Pups Take it to the Sky - The PAW Patrol takes to the sky in their all new Air Patroller airplane!  When an active volcano spews out hot lava and scatters a frightened monkey family, it's up to the PAW Patrol to gather them all and bring them back to safety.

Pete the Cat and Broxton's Magic Sunglasses from Put Me In The Story has your child as the star of the book with Pete the Cat!!!

As you turn each page, Pete meets friends along his way.  Each one seems to be having a crummy day, but it all changes once they put on Broxton's Magic Sunglasses! It is pretty neat that when they put on the sunglasses, the picture of Broxton is right there for the reader to see and enjoy!  


With the Sky So Bright you have to wear shades, you can bet you are pretty lucky to get to view the world through Broxton's magic sunglasses!    Just reading the book made me feel alright too!
