My daughter loved the Octopals but sadly are just about impossible to clean so had to bin them once they became full of algae-like mould. So fun while it lasted. Not great that these plastic toys will be in a landfill for hundreds of years either :-(
After 5 months use these have been thrown away as they are filled with black mould. Until that point my son loved playing with them, and liked the bright colours, but it's a shame there is no way to clean them. A short lived product, which makes me feel guilty for landfill that they can't be passed on when outgrown.
Although daughter did enjoy then they mould inside so easily. I would make sure execs water was squeezed out after bath but they would still shoot out green gunk with the water, not what you want floating in the kids bath! I know this applies to all toys of this nature. The central octopus however has lasted the test of time, over a year later it's still perfect and great for washing hair
This is good as a one off toy to play with but not as a regular bath toy. Unfortunately the squirters don’t seem to dry out inside no matter how much you squeeze all the water out so next time you use them brown damp mould end up in your bath with your baby/toddler which isn’t suitable. I suppose it’s unavoidable but wouldn’t purchase again
Our little girl loved this to start with, but we’ve had to get rid as mould started to grow after one month- despite us making sure all water was squeezed out after each bath. Still, it’s not massively expensive, just a shame we couldn’t use it for longer then pass to charity- instead it’s going to landfill
Great product, my girls loved them, but I’m now sticking to non-squirting bath toys as they all get mouldy. I don’t have mould in my bathroom and always took a lot of care with these (after reading the reviews) but they still got mouldy over time. Would be happy with exactly the same product without squirting - tip for the manufacturer.
It’s a gift so I’m not able too comment. However the box wasn’t package at all and my delivery sticker was put k ok n the item box , ridiculous as had too try too remove and it tore the box .... and looked tatty .... not happy .... a piece of paper would have helped instead of NOTHING
The octopus characters weren't as vibrant is colour as I thought they would be from the advertisement picture. Each have a number painted on and a number placement on the green flower shaped stand. Ideal for learning numbers. Very fun at bath time, my son uses it as a general toy to carry around because he loves the faces on the octopus. Good material quality and suction for bathroom tiles.
They are fine, except they are one of those toys that have a "squeak hole" at the bottom, therefore water gets in and causes mold to grow on the inside, which is very unsafe for babies. I tried filling the holes with a glue gun, but they're too small and the glue keeps falling out. You just have to throw the toy away after a month, so overall not a good buy.
