I was a fan of Meomi long before I was a mom. Their super cute illustration style caught my eye and I was pleased to learn that they had created a team of submarine-dwelling critters for a book series once Roo was born. The Octonauts and the Only Lonely Monster was an instant fave- I think I enjoyed it as much as Roo did! Fast forward a few years and, of course, the team has their own TV show and still holds a special place in our family.
We were thrilled to find out that Mattel was releasing a collection of Octonauts toys. I secretly hoped that Roo and Jasper would think they were too "little kid" for them and I could steal them for my office, but no such luck. They went nuts at seeing the Octopod playset!
These toys are not only predictably adorable but very sturdy and meant for serious play. They've been in the tub and outside and I suspect they'll be hitting the pool very soon. I know my photos are a little hard to discern (my good camera is out of commission right now), so here is a stock image of the wonderous Octopod playset:
So. Stinking. Cute. We love the Octonauts!
