Pinky has been an Octonauts fan for a long time now. Everything is Octonauts this and Octonauts that. Octonauts, Octonauts, Octonauts! She even had a Ocotonauts theme third birthday. I slaved for hours making fondant Kwazii, Peso and Captain Barnacles.
The Octonauts is really a pretty cool show because not only is it entertaining it’s also educational. You’d be suprised to hear Pinky talk about all the different animals and she knows them all – decorator crabs, whale sharks, cookie cutter sharks. She’ll talk about it for hours. 🙂 She’s quite the little marine biologist because of the show!
When I heard that Octonauts was finally coming to DVD in the states I was super excited. Pinky is always asking to watch it and having a DVD on hand to put in our home dvd player or better yet, the van’s dvd player for trips is great.
Octonauts Here Comes the Octonauts from NCircle Entertainment is available at Walmart, Amazon, retailers and grocery stores nationwide!
Pinky was so excited to have her first Octonauts DVD!
In Here Come the Octonauts, Captain Barnacles must figure out how to free an old friend who is trapped beneath the ice; Kwazii tries to rescue a reef full of creatures before an undersea storm strikes; and Peso must help a school of frightened fish who have invaded the Octopod!
Based on the books of the same name by Vicki Wong and Michael Murphy, who write under the name Meomi, Octonauts is broadcast weekday mornings on Disney Channel’s Disney Junior block. The Octonauts received a BAFTA nomination for Best Animated Preschool Show in 2011 and 2013; and in October 2012 was nominated for an International EMMY Award.
And watch out in 2014 for some great new Octonauts events—the Octonauts have recently partnered with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) to work jointly to raise awareness of ocean exploration and science and advance NOAA’s mission! The partnership, which extends learning beyond the screen, includes plans for events at aquariums nationwide and joint development of educational materials!
