Fisher Price Octonauts Review

“Honey, why is it so quiet in the house?” inquired my husband when he came home from work recently. I quickly shushed him and brought him to the living room where our three young children ages, 5, 6 and 7 were happily playing together with the new Octonauts toy line by Fisher Price!

Octonauts, an exciting underwater adventure series for young children, is my own kids’ favorite show on the Disney Jr. television network. I am thrilled to let you know that little Octonauts fans can now recreate adventures from this adorable show at home complete with all of their favorite characters in a new toy line by Fisher Price.

There is a complete line of Octonauts toys including durable plastic playsets, action figures and even Octo-gear. Having three children, I am familiar with lots of toys, including many of the newest toy lines and by far, this toy series from Fisher Price has impressed me the most this year! Get ready to sound the OctoAlert and learn more…………………………….

The Octopod Playset (SRP $35) sets the stage for the favorite Octonauts characters to “come to life” in your children’s imagination as they can “Explore, Rescue and Protect” their ocean world. This fun toy includes over 10 play pieces and even has OctoAlert sounds and phrases from the show. There are interactive slides for the characters and it even has removable rescue tools like a stretcher, net, barrel and anchor. My kids enjoyed role playing with their favorite characters from the Disney Jr. show as they rescued sea creatures in need of help.

The Octonauts Gup C & Shellington/Whale play set is a great addition to the undersea world. My kids were very excited to discover that many of the toys in this line are able to be played both in and out of the water so it is perfect for the bathtub and pool as well as regular play. In this set the creatures actually change color when placed in warm water which was quite the hit. They also liked using the “towline” anchor to help their whale friend get lifted to the safety of the Octopod Playset while zooming around in the underwater submarine (check out the window so kids can see the bottom of the tub).

There is a wonderful selection of Octonauts action figures and playsets to choose from with my children’s favorite being Kwazii & the Slime Eel (SRP $10). Will the kids be able to help Kwazii rescue the slime eel from his treasure chest? I can attest to the fact that my own children have been engaged for hours on this adventure and many others while playing with their beloved Octonauts toys and the slime eel safely made it back to the Octopod playset for rehabilitation.

Other fun toys in the Octonauts line include the Octonauts Octo-Compass ($12.99), Octonauts Peso and the Giant Jelly Comb (SRP $5) and the Octonauts GUP-A Mission Vehicle ($20).

Fisher Price has definitely hit a home run with the Octonauts toy line for children ages 3 and up. The attention to detail is excellent and the small details are very popular such as the creatures that can squirt water which is lots of fun for the kids.
