LP and Little Man love Octonauts like nothing else at the moment. LP recites the TV shows, they both pretend to be characters from the show and when they watch it they turn into little zombies who stare at the screen like they’ve never seen a TV before.
You can imagine then how excited they were when the Octonauts GUP-i playset arrived to review. They set includes the Gup-I vehicle as well as a snow prowler, Kwazii figure, seal and three snow balls. The Gup-I was simple to put together and the children were ready to play in a matter of minutes.
What is the Octonauts Gup-I?
The Octonauts Gup-I has three different play modes – the first where it opens up to play inside, one where it stands on it’s back feet for better polar exploration and another where it’s legs extend. The three modes add a lot of different play options to the set and keep the children entertained – although just the fact it’s Octonauts does that too!
One of the aerials on the Gup-I cab can be pulled down to hear Kwazii say phrases from the show and I have found LP and Little Man both having conversations with Kwazii whilst playing. The set has so many things for the children to play with and the addition of a seal patient, snow balls to collect an the cute Kwazii figure give the children so many play options.
Any Octonauts fan would adore this set. It’s well made, looks just like the Gup-I in the show and has so much to play with. The only way it could be improved would be to include more Octonauts characters but the Gup-I is part of a whole Octonauts toys range and these would be a great way of collecting the other lovable Octonauts characters.
LP and Little Man adore this toy. They play with it constantly, play with it together and really enjoy playing with it whilst they watch the show. If you’re looking for a gift for a little Octonauts fan this would be perfect.
The Octonauts Gup-I has an RRP of £39.99
