My boys have liked the Octonauts show for a while now, and they were THRILLED when a box of Octonauts goodies arrived! We received the Octonauts Octopod Playset, Octonauts Gup-C and Shellington, Rescue Assortment Action Figure Rescue 2-Pack – Kwazii & the Slime Eel, and the Octonauts Octo-Compass. The compass was a hit right off the bat – the boys used it to do all sorts of exploring around the house, and they thought the fact that it makes noises and talks was SO cool.
The Octopod Playset is downright awesome. It’s sturdy and well-made, it’s right on par with images kids will have seen from the show, it’s colorful, and the four pods make this an easy toy for kids to share (which is a pretty big feat in itself). It promotes creativity, for sure – the boys were acting out all sorts of different scenarios and had so much fun with it! The extra toys with the GUP-C and then Kwazii were a great addition to the Octopod and allowed for even more fun. We were all really impressed with the Octonauts toys! They’re a lot of fun to have out during or after the Octonauts show airs, too, because then it allows for the kids to actually get involved and actively play along with the storylines.
