What is Paw Patrol?
Paw Patrol focuses on a bunch of pups, as well as their human Ryder, who make sure all is well in the fictional city of Adventure Bay (and its surrounding areas).
There are 11 characters in the show, each one called upon from their doghouses to help in their pupmobiles.
The show has become the biggest title in children's entertainment, reportedly becoming more popular among toddlers than Mickey Mouse, Frozen and Elmo.
Where to buy the Paw Patrol 2022 advent calendar
What better way to lead up to the big day than offering a Paw Patrol fan the chance to build up a small collection of their favourite characters? Behind the windows are pups, animal pals and festive accessories for them all.
Using the calendar packaging they can create their own Christmas adventures and, should a bigger set arrive from Santa, these can all be incorporated into it.
The calendar is available from a range of retailers, including Boots, Amazon and Ocado. It's already out of stock at a few sites, so we'd recommend buying it while you can!
