The Ultimate Paw Patrol Gift Guide is a guest post series from Kaylee at Mama and More. She writes all about how you can tackle DIY projects and organization with a family of mess-makers. Check out her free course about how to love your home today–even if you’re drowning in Paw Patrol toys. 😉
Paw Patrol… paw patrol… whenever you’re in trouble…. NO JOB’S TOO BIG NO PUP’S TOO SMALL! You’re welcome.
My daughter discovered the pups through YouTube, and the obsession grew quickly and has stuck for over a year…which is pretty significant for a 3 year old. She learned each pup’s name, color, and catchphrase at 2, and has been playing with her pup figures since then. Her collection keeps growing, and miraculously we have only lost a few pups in all that time! And yet she has not one dang pair of matching socks…
If you have a little Paw Patrol lover in your life, whether it’s your son or daughter, niece, nephew, grandchild, or even a friend’s child, let me be the first to tell you there are an ENDLESS amount of Paw Patrol figures, vehicles, art sets, and accessories. Seriously. So over the next few posts, I’m going to be categorizing them all.
My hope is that you’ll be able to find out which are the best Paw Patrol gifts for you. Seeing how all the different vehicles and versions of each pup encourages my daughter to use her imagination is incredible to me, which is why I totally support her obsession with these toys. She seriously plays with them for about 80% of every single day. This girl’s imagination never stops!
Notes about Prices and Availability
Most things in this series will be from Amazon, Walmart, or Target, although there are exceptions. Sometimes a themed set (which you’ll read more about in tomorrow’s post), is exclusive to one of these places, and I’ll note that. If it’s a common item, I will always link to the cheapest one.
You’ll notice that random items are going to be way more expensive than they should be (like a 3-inch pup for $20-$40… WHAT.). This is just because there’s limited availability at the time and some lucky seller is trying to make some money. If you keep checking back, it’s likely that toy will decrease in price at some point.

The Absolute Best Paw Patrol Gifts
If you are really a TOTAL newbie, the Paw Patrol pups are Chase, Marshall, Rubble, Zuma, Rocky, and Skye. Now get to memorizing all those names because THERE WILL BE A TEST. There’s also two specialty pups, Tracker, and Everest, and of course finally Ryder, the pups’ leader.
Mini Figures: Set of 6
Vehicles: These are slightly larger, and fit into the Lookout Tower and the other vehicles I describe below.
The other “original” toy that is highly loved in our house is the Pup Pad–the pups method of communicating. For whatever reason, the Sea Patrol Pup Pad seems to be more popular. A lot of vehicles come with a mission card to go in the Pup Pads.
If you’ve never seen the show, the lookout tower is where all the pups and Ryder meet to get their mission. IT’S A BIG DEAL GUYS.
As I said before, the vehicles and pups listed above can be used with this tower. We were gifted our Lookout Tower about 7 months ago, and Braela has not gone one single day without playing with it. It is absolutely her favorite toy, along with all of her figures. This is probably our family’s version of the absolute best Paw Patrol gifts.
If you want a similar thing that’s more affordable, here is a smaller version of the lookout tower.
The Paw Patroller is basically a big bus that’s way cooler than a regular bus for our kids. Actually, it’s just way cooler than a regular bus for everyone.
It comes with Ryder and his ATV, and it holds 3 mission paw vehicles. Once you open it up, it can hold all 6!
I would definitely suggest looking at the pictures of this one in action, it can do so much.
This Sea Patroller comes with Sea Patrol Ryder, his ATV, octopus figure, two lifesavers, and a detachable anchor.
The Sub Patroller is basically a cool submarine. It comes with Sea Patrol Ryder and a few rings. It’s great to put all the sea patrol pups inside.
The Air Patroller is obviously a plane, but it opens up and can fit all the individual figures. It comes with a Robo dog figure as well.
Right now it’s a full $10 cheaper on Walmart than Amazon or Target, and comes with free shipping.
The Ultimate Rescue episodes are more recent, so these are the newest vehicles.
Ultimate Rescue Fire Truck
This thing is HUGE. It’s over two feet wide and when you extend the ladder, it is over 2 feet high too! The Ultimate Rescue Fire Truck has a ton of features and comes with water cannon launchers, Marshall figure, and a sticker sheet. This is a pretty intense/intensely awesome toy.
Chase’s 5-in-1 Ultimate Cruiser
Yes, you read that right. It’s 5 different vehicles in one.
But really, it is super cool. Chase’s 5-in-1 Ultimate Cruiser comes with a Chase figure, of course, 2 motorcycles, a boat and a helicopter. So it has a ridiculous amount of features, like the Fire truck.
I would say these ultimate vehicles would be especially great for a kid who is really into one particular pup or a theme, like firemen or policemen.
…Or, airplanes. Which brings us here:
Skye’s Ultimate Rescue Ultimate Helicopter
For my daughter, I can’t decide between the three of these vehicles for the best Paw Patrol gift, but every time I read more about this one I get much more excited than I should.
Skye is often popular with little girls. This would be a perfect gift for a girl Paw Patrol obsess-ee like mine. It has a moving propeller, an extendable hook, flashing lights, and tons of other features. It also comes with the Ultimate Rescue Skye and Marshall figures, which is fun.
Skye’s Ultimate Rescue Ultimate Helicopter is hard to find now and appears to no longer be in production. While you can still get them on Amazon (for a high price), it would likely be worthwhile to check Facebook Marketplace or eBay to see if you can find one more reasonably priced.
This is the name of the set when the pups have to go rescue something or someone from Barkingburg, which is a Kingdom where they have accents. I just felt like that was info you needed to know.
Mission Cruiser – Like the Paw Patroller, but a little smaller, comes with Robo Dog and his vehicle, and can store multiple pups and vehicles.
If I’m being totally honest about this one, I don’t have any of these tracks so I don’t know much about them. I think my kids would just destroy these… but they look fun for other, less destructive children.
Launch & Roll Lookout Tower Set – This one is pretty cool because it includes a mini lookout tower
