With twins who couldn’t use more toys around the house? So while I bad never heard of Octonautsbefore when my daughter walked in from school and saw the packages. (She is almost 8 going on 18.) She was like, ”I know Octonauts. It’s for babies. Where is something for me 🙄 ?”
I Immediately I realized this is likely for the 2 or 3 through maybe 6 year old crowd. Unless you have a child that actually still enjoys being a child beyond that..like I know that I did growing up.
There were some terrific toys sent to me from this obviously more popular than I knew children’s cartoon. It’s funny how I hear about something new and then suddenly it appears on TV. I swear a literal day later I caught a glimpse of the show while roaming through the channels. I left it on and watched it with my girls.
This is great because now my twins can watch the show and own some toys to go right along with it. That always helps get young minds extra eager and far more engaged. I’m glad they have a new family-friendly show to watch.

This cartoon series always has an underlying lesson to be learned in it. And at the end of each episode the show’s characters teach its young viewers about the value of teamwork. It also helps children develop problem solving skills. These skills are very important in day to day life.
The Octonauts follows an underwater exploring crew made up of stylized anthropomorphic animals, a team of eight adventurers who live in an undersea base, the Octopod, from where they go on undersea adventures with the help of a fleet of aquatic vehicles.
The cartoons are aired in 11 minute episodes. I really like that because little minds have a hard time hanging on for very long periods of time. It’s nice to have them broken up into segments like that. There’s no toddler bore. It’s always fresh.
Here’s an episode example for you so you can get to know the Octonautsto.
If you are interested in getting your little Octonaut some toys to go along with the program, you can find them all at Toys R Us both online and in-store..
Octonauts even has a book series for your avid little readers. Or for your younger ones, you can bond with your child or children by reading to them before bedtime or anytime really. There are lots of octo-goodies and information about Octonauts in general at the Octonauts website.
The toys I was provided with are high-quality toys that are holding up very well to my ‘double trouble’. That speaks volumes. So, if you have an Octo-fan or two, providing them with some octo-toys is sure to make them smile. You can buy with complete and total confidence 😛 .
