“Dive into adventures with your favorite underwater explorers, the Octonauts! Join brave Captain Barnacles, daredevil ex-pirate Kwazii, and medic Peso Penguin, along with other Octonauts as they explore the world’s oceans, rescue the creatures who live there, and protect their habitats – above and below the waves!
My son and daughter ages 3 and 6 years old totally adore the Octonuats and were super excited about this latest DVD! My kids really like all the exploring, rescuing, and seeing their favorite characters doing their part in protecting all sorts of animals found in the sea! They make the dark somewhat unknown of the ocean a lot less scary for kids to learn about and that’s real winner. I love the take away due to the fact my kids will start spouting off random ocean creature facts throughout the day.
This DVD is 70 minutes long, you can easily sit and watch all the episodes or break it up and watch one at a time. There are a total of six episodes and a bonus feature teaching kids more about the marine life in six Creature Reports. Sea creatures on this DVD that children will learn about include Vampire Squid, Spook fish, Blobfish, Gulper Eels, & Long Armed Squid. The facts about each animal are mentioned in the episode as the story goes along but also will be brought up during the end in the “Creature Report”. As a mom and home educator, I’m liking the educational value of this DVD quite a bit! I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend not just this DVD but the entire series!
Buy it: This DVD is available at retailers near you on September 2nd but you can purchase it early online at Wal-Mart right now for about $11.00.
