At seven, I would have thought that Sophie has outgrown her interest for cartoon character live show as well as meet at greet at the shopping malls which we used to take her when she was much younger. But boy was I wrong when it came to the Paw Patrol who were in town for their first ever live show at City Square Mall for the September school holidays.
This animated series by Nickelodeon is about a boy named Ryder and his pack of rescue pups who goes on rescue mission to save the day. For little fans of Chase, Marshall and Ryder, they’ll certainly be in for a treat as the trio will be on stage to sing, dance and groove as they answer Mayor Goodway’s call for help to save the Adventure Bay Talent Show.
As this was the Paw Patrol’s first ever live show in Asia, we were expecting a huge crowd and went to grab a seat in front of the stage an hour before the show started.
Sounds like typical kiasu behaviour? Don’t laugh, because this was the crowd that turned up on a Saturday afternoon.
But I’ve no complains about being one of the parents who was seated on the ground and waiting for the show as I know it will be very soon before Sophie decides that she’s too old and sophisticated for such shows. Plus it’s such a joy to see Sophie enjoy every minute watching her favourite rescue pups on stage and I gotta admit they do look kinda cute and charming too.
Ryder really kept the energy levels high and he got the kids to stand on their feet and dance along to the catchy tunes of Pup Pup Boogie. The children were all so enthusiastic and followed along to his actions. I don’t think there’s usually much song and dance in the show but hey the kids all seem to be having a good time and that’s what matters most.
The daily live shows are from 3-11 September, excluding Monday and the timings are 2pm & 7pm for Tuesday to Friday and 1pm, 4pm & 7pm for Saturday and Sunday.
Paw Patrol Meet & Greet
After the show, we headed to B2 for an up close and personal meet and greet with Paw Patrol, which you can get with a minimum spend of $50. Passes are limited to 50 shoppers for each show and can be redeemed an hour prior to the show.
Sophie was super excited to see the pups and gave them high fives all around! To show her love for the pups, she even came in her Paw Patrol jacket with Skye and Everest!
Furry Fun Carnival
But that’s not all, up on level 1, there was also an outdoor carnival at the lawn area, which right at the main entrance of City Square Mall, where Toast Box is.
The coolest of them all has got to be the life-sized Paw Patrol vehicles, like Chase’s Cruiser, Marshall’s Fire Fighting Truck and Skye’s High Flying Copter for lots of photo opportunities.
After entertaining mummy with all the photos, Sophie was off for some fun herself and she bravely went on the doggie pirate ship which looked and was very mild. She was equally trilled to get on the animal ride and had a bouncing good time in the bouncy castle.
What a wonderful way to welcome the September school holidays! Don’t miss the Paw Patrol as the shows end this weekend.
Have a very paw-some time with the Paw Patrol!
