This Fisher Price toy is a real hit with my Octonaut obsessed 3 year old and has been a welcome addition to his rapidly growing Octonauts collection! Lightweight and brightly colored it comes with two figures; Captain Barnacles Bear and the swashbuckling pirate-turned-Ocotnaut, Lieutenant Kwazii Cat. There are also three sea-creatures included; a sea turtle, an eel and a fiddler crab.
There are four living pods as well as four rescue tools which clip on to each pod with a pretend'rope'; these are an anchor, stretcher, barrel and net which can be used to rescue sea creatures in peril.
There is a small Gup-A which the characters can sit in, in order to launch out of the escape hatch to begin their next colorful undersea adventure.
The detachable Octo-alert which can be pressed for sounds and phrases heard in the TV show can be clipped onto the top of the Octopod or removed and clipped onto your child's belt or trouser waistband for on-the-move adventures allowing an endless range of possibilities for creative play.
This is a great play-set for children into the Octonauts show and although the plastic is a little flimsy this also means it's lightweight and easy for little hands to move around.
The figures have movable heads and arms and are made of durable plastic. The only small criticism I have is that the living 'pods' are quite small and there is not much too them plus they become detached fairly easily.
This would be ideal for a child who already has a few Octonaut vehicle sets to compliment the collection and enhance play.
My little boy of three absolutely adores the octonauts so when I got gifted some vouchers, I decided I would treat him to this.
The octopod playset is made by Fisher Price, it is made of fairly malleable plastic. It is about 50cm high. It contains 10 detachable play pieces. It has a removable octoalert button which plays a variety of sounds and phrases from the tv show. You can attach the octoalert clip to your clothing which my son really enjoys.
It comes with two figures, kwazaii and Barnacles. The play figures are possible with movable heads. The figures seem better quality than the playset.
You can rotate the octopod 360 degrees. I am not sure why this is a feature to be honest as most children just move to play with an item! There is a small Shute at the bottom where you can launch an octonaut gup from with a character inside. There are 4 hanging basket attachments which have variable play uses, such as a swing.
It is good for imaginative play but it is overpriced for the quality. It would be worth about £20, not the £40 I paid.
You can play with it in the bath if you detach the octoalert. The stickers suffer somewhat if you do though as they start to peel off a little and also fade in colour. And you do not get any spares.
My son enjoys playing with it, but you need the other toys which are all available separately really to use it to its best advantage.
