September 28, 2017
From the top rated franchise PAW Patrol® comes the free, country-wide PAW Patrol Roll Patrol Road Tour featuring the life-size PAW Patroller and your favorite PAW Patrol pups

TORONTO, September 28, 2017 – Spin Master Corp. (TSX: TOY), a leading global children’s entertainment company, announced today an updated schedule for the remaining stops of its third annual PAW Patrol Roll Patrol Road Tour, a multi-city, life-size activation that successfully blends the award-winning toy line with the top-rated preschool property produced by Spin Master Entertainment and broadcast on Nickelodeon. The PAW Patrol Roll Patrol Road Tour will continue to travel across North America through October, allowing kids to connect with their favorite PAW Patrol characters through an immersive PAW Patrol-branded experience.

The updated schedule includes new information on metro area stops in and around Atlanta, Miami, Houston and Los Angeles.

The PAW Patrol Roll Patrol Tour is free to the public and is making stops at select Walmart, Toys“R”Us and Target retail locations in 13 different markets. During full activations, kids can explore the inside of the life-size PAW Patroller and meet their favorite PAW Patrol characters, as well as re-enact their own rescue missions through an interactive play experience featuring the new Sea Patrol theme. Visitors can also receive a memorable photo and limited edition giveaways.

Friday Tour stops are partial activations with character photo opportunities and play tables only.

“As we continue to build an evergreen property, there are multiple touch points when telling a story through a franchise such as PAW Patrol,” said Ben Gadbois, Spin Master’s Global President and COO. “There is a strong collaboration between our Entertainment team and Global Marketing team to ensure we’re connecting with children through positive and meaningful messages, and with the PAW Patrol Roll Patrol Road Tour we are physically bringing the magic to life.”

The life-size activation also has a dedicated area showcasing Spin Master’s newest entertainment property, Rusty Rivets. Kids can combine, design and “rustify” inside Rusty’s life-size Rivet Lab and meet the heroes from the show – Rusty and Ruby. Alongside Rusty Rivets, kids can play with the squeezable sand you can’t put down, Kinetic Sand.

Produced by Spin Master Entertainment, PAW Patrol is a CG-animated, action-adventure preschool series starring a pack of eight heroic puppies led by a tech-savvy 10-year-old boy named Ryder. The series’ unique blend of problem-solving skills, cool vehicles and cute doggy humor has propelled it to become TV’s number-one preschool series. PAW Patrol made its U.S. debut on Nickelodeon in August 2013 and has been picked up for a fifth season during which the heroic pack of pups – Chase, Marshall, Rubble, Skye, Rocky, Zuma, Everest and Tracker – will take to the high seas for Sea Patrol adventures where they’ll meet a scallywag of a pirate and his dachshund pup pal. Elements of the fifth season will be incorporated heavily throughout the 2017 PAW Patrol Roll Patrol Road Tour, including an immersive Sea Patrol experience, a Roll Patrol themed track, consumer-generated photo opportunities, character appearances, a Lookout Tower and HQ experience, interactive displays, a product play area and much more.

Pre-registration is highly encouraged and walk-ups are more than welcome, but admittance cannot be guaranteed due to the growing popularity of the Tour. In the event of weather, specific Tour elements may be moved indoors and event hours may be shortened.

Daniel “Julius Marx” Pickett has been around toys his whole life. The first line he ever collected was Mego’s World’s Greatest Super Heroes line back in the 70s. He has been surrounded by collectables ever since. In 1999 he was confounded by a lack of information and news about some of his favorite toy lines he was collecting. Since he couldn’t find the information he decided to pursue it himself thinking other people might also be interested in the same news. He started writing a weekly column on the toy industry and action figure for a toy news site and in a years time he tripled the sites daily traffic with his updates, reviews and product features. He built relationships with every major toy manufacturer and many sculptors, painters and mold makers. He grew his hobby into a world wide expertise that the industry has embraced. In 2004 he teamed up with his toy buddy Jason “ToyOtter” Geyer and they created their own website www.ActionFigureInsider.com. Daniel has been quoted in both industry and mass media press outlets. Over the years Daniel and AFi have been sought out as experts in the field. Daniel was regularly featured on “Attack of the Show” on the G4 network as the primary contributor to their “Mint On Card” segment, and our front page has been linked to from USA Today’s “Pop Candy” Blog twice. Daniel’s content has also been featured on MSNBC.com, Time.com, The Wall Street Journal, The Saturday Evening Post, CNN.com, AssociatedPress.com Wired.com, Fark.com, Boing-Boing, Gizmodo.com, Ain’t It Cool News, the Official Star Wars blog, Geekologie, G4, CNet and Toy Fare magazine, among many others. He has consulted on toy lines, books, documentaries and TV shows. But all of that really just sounds snooty and “tootin’ his own horn” – the long and short of it is that Daniel loves toys and he LOVES talking about them.
