Paw Patrol is a children’s animated adventure series by satellite broadcast channel Nickelodeon, depicting a group of rescue dogs and a tech-savvy boy named Ryder. The associated playing cards are “jumbo” size (twice the size of ordinary playing cards). Each denomination of card features a different character from the show, with the same image repeated across the suits but with a red or black background depending on the suit.

I have adored playing cards since before I was seven years old, and was brought up on packs of Waddington's No 1. As a child I was fascinated by the pictures of the court cards.
Over the next fifty years I was seduced by the artwork in Piatnik's packs and became a collector of playing cards.
Seeking more information about various unidentified packs I discovered the World of Playing Cards website and became an enthusiastic contributor researching and documenting different packs of cards.
I describe my self as a playing card archaeologist, using detective work to identify and date obscure packs of cards discovered in old houses, flea markets and car boot sales.
