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.
