when you have a Octonauts mad son (followed slowly by his little sister) in the house!
We where lucky enough to try it out for ourselves just how cool the new Sea-Slimed Octopod is and let you know the results!
Building the new Octopod took less then 10 minutes and was pretty simple, you might want to turn off the Octonauts Alarm on the bottom of the pod because i jumped when i accidentally pushed it whilst assembling the parts! The Octopod comes with a Octopus Captain Barnacles in a very green Slime suit and a large scooper as well as a little pot of extra slimy slime which can be used
on the catapult to shoot some slime!
The new Sea-Slimed Octopod has got some pretty cool features which includes a Octonauts Alarm button inside to Octopod which gives out different sounds and phrases from Captain Barnacles like:
“Sound the OctoAlert” – “Octonauts, to your stations!” – Octonauts, activate the sea slide!”
“Its time to slime” – “Octonauts, good work!”
If you stand Captain Barnacles on the slimy OctoHatch and push the green button next to it he will slide down the legs ready to head out of the Octopod to get quickly onto his next rescue mission!
The coolest feature has to be when pushing the pod’s mouth because it will light up and glow a pretty fantastic slimy bright green colour! And all 4 Pods rotated 360 degrees which is super!
Now Finn also has got the old style 1st generation Octopod so i thought it would be nice to compare both of them together and show you some of the 1st generation Octopod features too:
The 1st generation Octopod comes with over 10 play pieces (not all shown on the pic because we lost a few over the years). It has a red OctoAlert button on the top which has sounds and phrases and
can be removed and clipped onto trousers. You can launch the Gup A from the base of the Octopod and the Octonauts can slide from their Pods into the middle and down the OctoHatch and out of
the Octopod for their next mission. You can also buy some extra add on: “On The Go Pods”
which are the sleeping quarters of the 4 Octonauts as shown in picture 1 and 3 they can stay
open or close up and attach to the arms of the Octopod.
The old style Octopod is taller and wider then the new one and even though
both have similar cool features i do prefer the new one!
