If you are considering a Paw Patrol plush rider for your little Chase, Marshall, Skye fan, read this review to find out all the details of this toy!
My youngest recently turned 2 years old. I’m still not even sure how that is possible! It feels like just a few weeks ago that he was brought into this world.
But now instead of a little baby that enjoys bottles and naps, now he is a Paw Patrol obsessed toddler. Since his big sister also went through a Paw Patrol phase, he inherited quite a few Paw Patrol toys.
And for his Birthday, he got lots of additional Paw Patrol toys to love. On the day of his party, his grandparents brought in this big plush Chase, complete with his own pup house!
A life size Chase that moves and will take you for a ride? It was an instant hit.
Since Christmas time is approaching, I thought I would write a Paw Patrol 6 Volt Ride-on Toy review to help you if you are considering this toy for your child. Find out all the ins and outs of this fun Paw Patrol toy.
*Update: We are coming up on a year of owning this toy and it is still being played with all the time! It is definitely a bigger hit with our almost 3 year old but even the 6 year old enjoys riding it.

Paw Patrol 6 Volt Ride-On Toy Review
Paw Patrol really comes alive with this new plush ride on toy. This Paw Patrol 6 Volt Ride on Toy Review will give you all the answers to the things you will love, hate & the experience your child will likely have with the product!
Paw Patrol Character Choice
The first thing to do is choose your child’s favorite character. They currently have Chase, Marshall & Skye options.
We have the Chase at our house but the Marshall is on sale at Walmart right now for $99 (reg. $149).
*Note: Online prices may change at any time.
Charging the Pup
With a good overnight charge, the toy will run for quite a few hours. I don’t know the exact time but Chase got tons of use from about 7 am until 1 pm and was still going strong.
I liked that it doesn’t run out of charge super quick because we all know what it is like to have a kid wanting to use their new toy and the battery is dead.
Before we go on to any additional details, let’s get to the good stuff in this Paw Patrol 6 Volt Ride-On Toy Review. Your child’s reaction to this new realistic Paw Patrol buddy.
My son was absolutely thrilled to see this big buy roll through our doors.
He instantly hopped on and was driving through my living room. And his 5 year old sister that doesn’t like Paw Patrol anymore? She was dying for a turn on this plush moving pup as well.
When a life size dog comes into your house and wants to take you on a ride, there just isn’t anything bad about that!
We had his party at our home this year and every single kid that came in (ages 1-7) wanted a turn on Chase. It was definitely the hit of the party.
Recommended Age & Ease of Use
My daughter got a ride on BMW a few years ago from her same set of grandparents. And while it is so cute, it was really hard for her to navigate and still is at age 5.
This Paw Patrol Plush 6V toy is the exact opposite. It is very easy to navigate, even for a 2 year old. It turns easily which keeps the “I’m stuck” commentary to a minimum (although it does still happen!)
The minimum use age from the manufacturer is 2. We had a couple of kids that were 2 or about to be at his party and all were able to easily get on the pup and use the foot accelerator alone (with supervision of course).
I couldn’t find a maximum weight limit. But we had 5-7 year olds riding it and it was fine.
So I think the best part of this Paw Patrol plush ride on toy, aside for the kid’s joy of course, is the easy care for this toy.
Someone was thinking when they made this toy! The entire plush dog comes off and can be thrown in your washing machine.
And that is good because the birthday boy at our house decided to eat his cupcake while he rode Chase so we have some dried icing on our pup’s head to deal with.
The other item that you get with your pup is the coordinating pup house.
It is a plastic house with a working swing door. During the birthday party, many of the kids got inside the house to pretend they were a pup.
The house will also contain the 6V ride on toy when it is not in use.
I am not sure if all of the pups do the same, so I will just talk about the Chase.
Each handlebar has a button that can be pushed to hear a sound. For the Chase, one sound is a police siren and the other is a barking dog.
The kids seemed to enjoy the sound feature and I liked that it was not ridiculously loud or annoying!
Cons of the 6V Plush Paw Patrol Ride On Pup
We really like this toy and as I’m sure you can tell from this Paw Patrol 6 Volt Ride-On Toy Review, we recommend it.
However, there are some things that you should know before buying. These are not deal breakers for us but it is always good to know before you buy.
The toy is a 6V with a maximum speed of 2.5 MPH. This is actually a pro in my book because it means less chance for injury with my dare devil two year old.
However, some people have stated that it is too slow for their four year old. My 5 year old really liked to ride on her brother’s new Paw Patrol ride and hasn’t complained about the speed but it is something to keep in mind if you are getting it for a preschooler.
The Paw Patrol plush ride on toy only goes forward. There is not a reverse feature.
What this means is that they may get stuck more often. We were able to clear a path through our living room, dining room and kitchen that he can circle around with few incidents to eliminate the issue.
Works Best On Smooth, Hard Surfaces
This toy works best on hardwood, tile or concrete.
We have a large, thick area rug that the toy will roll on but occasionally it will get stuck trying to transition from the hardwood to the rug.
Hopefully this Paw Patrol 6 Volt Ride-On Toy Review helps you in your decision as to whether or not to purchase this toy!
