The paw-sibilities of finding a magical gift for the tots on your list just got better with the announcement of a new Storypod collaboration with PAW Patrol. Just in time for holiday giving, PAW Patrol is just one of three upcoming product developments with Paramount Consumer Products.
Look for a rollout of three PAW Patrol Crafties with Book, Token and a branded Storypod Sleeve now through 2024. Blue’s Clues & You! and Bubble Guppies licenses will also expand Storypod’s Crafties Collection for months to come for kids ages 3- to 5-years old. Now, kids can hear engaging stories and songs from breakfast to bedtime without ever turning on a screen.
As Ryder, the leader of the PAW Patrol says: “no job is too big, no pup is too small!” Chase, the pup with the can-do attitude, is the first of three beloved PAW Patrol characters to join Storypod’s library as a Craftie and will make his debut next month.
“We’re thrilled to announce that PAW Patrol’s Chase is on his way to Storypod,” reveals Daniel Buelhoff, Storypod co-founder & CEO. “Parents and grandparents should know that we anticipate a high demand for this beloved character, so pre-order now at Storypod.com to ensure Chase joins your holiday celebrations.”
Storypod’s loveable yarn characters were developed by educators to ignite emerging imaginations with age-appropriate stories and songs. Little ones simply tap Chase (or other characters in the collection) onto the Storypod to begin an audio adventure. Crafties are frustration-free because after the tap, youngsters can grab their Craftie and play but the sound doesn’t stop when it’s removed from the Storypod.
Likewise, new Books and Tokens featuring PAW Patrol, Blue’s Clues and You! and Bubble Guppies storylines will start with a tap on the Storypod. As one reviewer for online magazine Third Coast explained of the award-winning audio player, “It can encourage early language skills in babies, help with naptime with a soothing nightlight and lullabies, and at later ages help children express their creativity, reinforce what they’re learning in school and help them deal with social issues and big emotions.”
“There are lots of familiar franchises in preschool entertainment,” adds Buelhoff, “but for today’s generation of toddlers, some of the most popular names are Paramount’s Blue’s Clues and You!, Bubble Guppies and PAW Patrol. We are delighted to enter this three-year deal with Paramount Consumer Products to create fresh audio experiences with beloved characters that kids can control with a tap of a Craftie, a Book or a Token. And like everything we do, these will have an educational bent to all featured products.”
Created by Spin Master Entertainment and airing in Nickelodeon, PAW Patrol follows the adventures of a tech-savvy boy named Ryder and his team of pups who are ready to save the day. Whenever there’s trouble, pups Chase, Marshall, Rubble, Skye, Rocky, Zuma, Everest and Tracker are ready for action, no matter what comes their way. With a mission to work together to keep Adventure Bay safe, no job is too big, and no pup is too small.
Blue’s Clues & You! has a new generation of preschoolers searching for clues with beloved puppy Blue and new live-action host Josh (Josh Dela Cruz). The series features new CG-animation for Blue and Magenta, brand-new elements and refreshed iconic items from the original series including an updated Handy Dandy Notebook equipped with smartphone technology and the return of fan-favorite characters.
Emmy Award-winning Bubble Guppies is an interactive CG-animated series, set in a vibrant underwater environment, that follows a group of diverse preschoolers with colorful fish tails who go on adventures discovering their world. The series is set to a soundtrack of catchy, educational pop songs and features a curriculum that infuses the core elements of kindergarten readiness, including math, literacy, the arts, science, and socio-emotional development.
Chase from PAW Patrol • Ages 3+ • 21.99 A fan favorite, this pup is an athletic natural leader who likes to take charge. Chase may be on the case, but he has to watch out for cats and feathers because (ah-choo) he’s allergic. As a soft Craftie, little ones will want to touch his blue police hat or pink ears. Look for the two little paw prints on his chest and on his cap.
Parents will need a Storypod to listen to the interactive audio adventures with PAW Patrol’s Chase. This award-winning learning system engages kids with multisensory stories, music, and skill-building at every stage through magical touch-to-play yarn audio characters, books, trivia cards and more.
