First, let me tell you that Dubz does not even watch Octonauts. But he loves imaginative play. And he adores his new Octonauts GUP-I Playset. He has been playing with it everyday for the past week. And for someone who normally only plays with dinosaurs and Star Wars toys, this is impressive. He has even asked to take the playset with him to bed, but I convinced him that he would be okay to just take the seal to bed (we don’t know the names of the characters, I think the orange creature is a seal but I’m not 100% sure).
The GUP Playset has three modes of play. It can race around in water bear mode, and It go upright in scout mode. Dubz mostly plays with it in command centre mode. He opens up the playset and uses the hub to organise the rescues. At first I thought that £39.99 was a lot to pay for this toy. But then I noticed how well made it is. Dubz has dropped it several times. Not one part of the toy has broken off.
Dubz has already asked for more Octonauts toys. Maybe Father Christmas will bring him some. Does your little one like Octonauts? What are those animals? Maybe Dubz and I should watch the show and found out what these creatures are and why they’re sailing around.
We were sent the Octonauts polar vehicle for the purpose of this review. All opinions expressed are entirely my own.
