I want to take my 3 year old son so he can see Paw Patrol. He watches the show daily on television. I think if he saw Paw Patrol in person he would be super excited. Thank you for the chance.
So cute! Good luck! And thanks for following!
If we were lucky enough to go, my Shopkins fanatic would be so excited to see the Shopkins Fashion Show. We would also see some of the screenings and enjoy all of the awesome brands and products on the show floor.
