Paw Patrol aquadoodle mat review

Over the years we have had 2 Aquadoodle mats, Little 1 had a Toy Story one and it was so well used we had to get a second one for Little 2 who has a Colour Deluxe one, these have been used so much over the years that we had planned to get Little 3 a new Aquadoodle mat of his own for Christmas this year.

I love Aquadoodle, a mat that reacts with water, easy to use- just fill up the pen and get creative, no mess, no fuss and as soon as it is dry you can use it over and over again.

TOMY kindly sent us their exciting new Paw Patrol themed Aquadoodle to test out. The mat is surrounded by Chase and all his friends and is a good size for Little 3. 


If you soak the bottom of Chase's police truck in water, and run him over the magic mat footprints appear.



There is an easy grip Aquadoodle pen included too and as you colour the mat you discover the rest of the patrol hiding as well!




Once you've finished watch as the drawing dries and designs fade away, ready for the mat to be used over and over again. The mat dried pretty quickly so you can play with it continuously rather than having to wait to be able to use it again.


I liked that there was an elastic bit attached to the side of the mat to store the pen and a tie so you can roll up the mat to store or take out with you too. 

Little 3 loves his new Aquadoodle especially as he really loves cars at the moment and 'brumming' Chase along the mat seeing the footprints appear is great, although he is a bit perplexed at how they get there! 

I love it too as it is easy for him to play with by himself or along with me and there is no mess to clear up, just make sure the pen is empty and the mat and car fully dry before you put it away.

The Aquadoodle Paw Patrol mat is suitable from ages 2+ years and RRP £25.99

N.B We were gifted an Aquadoodle mat in return for this post.

  1. That last photo reminded me of the day you came over to mine and saw them all hanging there! They are so gorgeous and I'm so glad you got on with them. Hope this post makes even one person try them out as they really are the best!

  2. I hope so too, I would never go back to disposables now!

  3. Some great incentives here, I have to admit it is the cute colours that excite me and I never knew they didn't leak! I was thinking about cloth nappies for baby #2 but worried it could be hard work getting used to with my daughter still in disposables? x

  4. Oh my goodness I've always wanted to work out the number of nappy changes. You're obviously much better at maths than me :) I still haven't tried cloth. I must. #maternitymondays

  6. Ooh no, once you have been doing it for a couple of weeks, learning what popper setting and insert combo fits/suits your baby and getting a washing routine that suits you it just becomes second nature. I wish I had used cloth with my other two most definitely. x

  7. I'm certainly going to look into it a little more now as I really do like the idea and the plan is that this is the last baby so last chance! x

  8. My one piece of advice is to try a few different brands to see what suits before spending out on all of one type, nappy libraries are great too. x

  9. All brilliant reasons to use cloth nappies! I never really got into cloth nappies with my first but I'm expecting baby number 2 in November and I've bought and am planning to use Gnappies. I've got lots of gorgeous colours and designs already. Can't wait to use them! x

  10. oh I love gnappies, we started using them in Feb and I now use them 80% of the time, I love them but hubby just can’t get the hang of them and prefers the all in ones. Thanks for commenting x
