Paw Patrol pre-school bribery in NYC
June 25, 2016 9:45 AM   Subscribe

I bribed my two three and a half year old girls (identical twins - super cute) who are obsessed with Paw Patrol in the way that is hard to explain, that I was going to a country where they sold Paw Patrol everything - but now I can't find anything, help.

I'm in the US and specifically NYC for a week, leaving my twin girls for the first time eek. I've not been over since BT (before twins) and so I didn't realise Toys R Us has closed. Does anyone have any idea where I could go on Manhattan to locate any kind of Paw Patrol paraphernalia?

What do those dogs have over our children?

Do you have an Amazon account? Push comes to shove you order some stuff for same day/overnight/two day shipping to wherever you are staying.

You can also try calling West Side Kids at 212-496-7282 and seeing if they carry PP stuff. If not, they can probably direct you elsewhere.

I don't know if you are near/can get to a Target or Walmart, but they should both have Paw Patrol toys, as well as assorted other things (lunchboxes, possibly pajamas/shirts/underwear, backpacks, etc.) If you search the websites, you can filter by what is available in-store for specific locations.

I'm not sure what the coveted items are but clicking at specific Paw Patrol items on Kmart's website, they seem to have a bunch of stuff available at the 34th Street and Broadway locations.

(in case that was unclear those are two separate locations.)

(also you can use their site to order things for in-store pickup. I will stop posting now!)

Thanks so much for this! you are amazing, and I will trek out to these places so I can hand over my worthless pounds - dollars for over priced dog merchandise, and have the happiest children in the world...

It also might be worth checking in at a Barnes and Noble bookstore if you pass one. They have a ton of Paw Patrol books/activity sets and might even have some of the actual toys in their kids section.

I agree to check smaller toy stores and Kmart type places. If you really want to blow their minds, Party City (on 14th St between 5th and 6th aves) carries a whole line of PP-themed birthday party supplies. Paper plates, cups, and napkins, banners and trinkets galore.

Yes, last time I was in the Barnes and Noble in Lincoln Square, the kids' section was as much actual toys as it was books. So I don't know anything about Paw Patrol but you might try there.

Yes, Barnes & Noble locations all have different stuff, but most have Paw Patrol figures. They also have a rotating selection of My Busy Books which kids adore. They have a bunch of little figures included. There's a Paw Patrol one, and they are under $10.

Sadly, there's no more Barnes & Noble at Lincoln Square.

Your easiest bet I'm sure is to buy on Amazon and have it shipped to your hotel.
