Close to celebrating 10 years (the series was created in 2013 by the Canadian Keith Chapman, the same as Bob the builder) the Paw Patrol movie arrives at the cinema! With the film also the usual sticker album. Our six little dogs then rediscover the stickers after a few years’ break. We are missing! How we lack a quality publisher like Gedis was, who had made one of the previous albums.
First part of the album that introduces all the characters in the series, each dog has its own dedicated page, again we find the shaped ones that we like so much and 4 other side stickers. In our opinion, graphics are effective and fun. Let’s see if you remember them all: Marshall the Dalmatian, Chase the German shepherd, Skye the cocker, Rublle the bulldog, Rocky the half-breed, Zuma the labrador, Everest the husky and Tracker the puppy. Each with their own “super powers”.
At the center of the album we find the pages dedicated to the movie, 18 stickers that introduce the story. Interesting choice of Panini, instead of making an album that tells the feature film, he prefers to make a more classic album. Better for those who do not want to miss the pleasure of seeing it at the cinema, perhaps even necessary since it is a little while that an album of stickers on our four-legged friends is missing.
Monumental central poster that contains 32 stickers with the letter X, an important number if we calculate that the rest of the album has “just” 144. Better this way, albums with not too many stickers are welcome so as to allow you to try to complete the collection without having to make a loan. Other nice pages are those related to the bowls (see photo above) and to the base of the Paw Patrol, pages that are also nice because they allow you to interact with the characters. Less interesting is the last part which presents some adventures, just a filling of the album.
The stickers are larger in size than other collections, in addition to the already mentioned shaped ones we find the classic glitter, both in some pages of the album, and especially for the central poster. Nice the many stickers dedicated to individual characters, probably destined to end up also attached to school notebooks.
