Octonauts Octopod Playset Review (Fisher-Price)

What It Is

The Octonauts Octopod Playset is based on the animated Disney Channel series The Octonauts. The Octopod is the Octonauts' undersea base. With this playset, kids can send two of the Octonauts, Barnacles and Kwazii, off on new missions. The playset comes with more than 10 play pieces, including a Barnacles figure, a Kwazii figure, a mini GUP-A, three sea creatures, four rescue tools, and a clip-on Octo-Alert that features phrases and sounds when kids press the button. Send the figures sliding down the pods and into the Launch Bay where they can report for duty and ready the GUP-A for a rescue mission. Place Kwazii or Barnacles inside the GUP-A and turn the lever to launch the vehicle down the escape hatch and out of the Octopod. Lift and lower rescue tools to bring the creatures back to safety. The Octo-Alert clips onto the playset, but kids can remove it and clip it to a pants pocket to bring it with them for pretend play on the go.

Is It Fun?

The Octonauts Octopod Playset brings the underwater fun and adventure of the TV series to life for preschoolers. Kids will like hearing familiar phrases and sounds from the show as they pretend to send Barnacles and Kwazii on new missions. Kids will also like being able to wear the Octo-Alert for imaginative play away from the playset.

Who It’s For

The Octopod Playset is for Octonauts fans ages 3 and up.
