At each of the UK venues, children will get a chance to meet two of the characters from Nickelodeon’s popular animated TV series. The characters features Chase, Marshall and Skye, and the tour expects to reach some 50,000 fans and their parents over the course of the eight-week tour.

Feedback from the initial St Helens and Luton events was overwhelming, with store managers reporting a massive turnout of fans.

Phil Hooper, European marketing director from Spin Master, commented: “Paw Patrol continues to go from strength to strength, and we know there’s an enormous appetite for fans to meet the characters. With Rainbow’s help, we’ve put together a cracking tour at this key time of year, and given the enormous success so far, we’re looking forward to planning more events through 2017.”
