Octonauts Octopod Playset Review
My boys received an Octonauts Octopod playset for Christmas 2011, and they love it.
Check out my hands on review before you buy it.
- + It was easy to put together. There are a few stickers, but they were easy enough to place correctly.
- + The ‘Octo Alert’ is a round red box that attaches to the Octopod, but can also be taken off and attached to clothing. It sounds great, just like on TV, and the kids love running around with it and pretending they are Kwazzi and Peso.
- + The figures and animals that are included are well proportioned, and robust.
- – Besides the Ocot-Alert, everything on the playset is manual. This saves on batteries, but your little one might be disappointed that they have to winch up the rescue tools by hand.
- – The Gup vehicle that comes with it is terrible. It just looks like a tiny plastic tea cup, and is nothing like the Gups you can buy seperately.
My Verdict This is a well loved, well played with toy, so it’s not been a waste of money, but I would have been disappointed if I had paid the full price. I definitely want to buy some additional vehicles as these look great, and hope they release the other characters soon.
Where to buy the Octonauts Ocotpod Playset in the US
In the UK this toy is priced at £35, which is around $56 at today’s exchange rate. You will need to pay extra to account for the cost of shipping over from Europe.
The only places I have found the Octopod playset on sale in the US is on Amazon.
