Fisher-Price Octonauts Gup-A & Barnacles
Why choose Fisher-Price?

Making products that teach, captivate, encourage and delight is what Fisher-Price is all about.

Their goal is to keep enriching the lives of families with young children. To help parents soothe newborns to sleep. To encourage babies to make that next big move. To see the wonder as toddlers discover the magic of play. To hear a preschooler imagine new worlds and explore everyday ones. To keep bringing joy to generations.

Fisher-Price Octonauts Gup-A and Barnacles

When there is trouble under the sea, the Octonauts dive into action. Their mission is to explore underwater worlds, rescue sea creatures and protect the oceans.

Barnacles is the Octonauts crew’s captain and this polar bear extraordinaire really knows the way to navigate tricky territory. Now you can help him on his adventures with the GUP-A - the Octonauts' main vehicle used for exploration and travel.

Whether on land or at sea, this vehicle is designed for all your rescue missions. On land, crank the propeller and watch it move up and down as it rides along the floor. In water, the GUP-A speeds along allowing you to reach creatures in trouble on the double.

  • Ages 3+
  • Includes a Barnacles figure, an angler fish and three rescue tools
  • Vehicle works in and out of the water
  • Crank the propeller to make it go
  • Wobbles up and down as it rides on land and works on water
  • Reel in the angler fish with the hook and net
  • Arm grabber attaches to Gup-A

Fisher-Price Octonauts Gup-A & Barnacles

Includes Barnacles and Accessories

The Gup-A exploration vehicle comes with a Barnacles figure and three rescue tools, as well as an angler fish to catch and reel in.

Crank the Propeller for Movement

Crank the propeller and the Gup-A will move up and down as it travels on land or will speed along when the adventure is in water.

Suitable for Wet or Dry Adventures

The Gup-A is equally at home on land or at sea, meaning there's no limit to where your adventures and rescue missions can take you.

This toy arrived for my 5 year old today, together with a Gup-D. On balance, this is the better value of the two.

It lends itself well to imaginary play because both the front and back halves open up - the back revealing a control panel and 'tank' to put rescued animals. You can fit two or three of the characters in the Gup. Much Octo-fun to be had there :-)

It comes with a Captain Barnacles in a red jump suit. I wasn't sure about that because he never wears this in the series, but my kids didn't care. The character toys are nicely proportioned and pose-able and my daughter played with these more than the Gup!

You can wind it up for it to move along on the ground or in the bath but, in fairness, it's a bit big and heavy for this to work properly. It performed quite well in the bath but if you jiggled it around too much, it capsized. I think younger kids may get a little frustrated with this. It was reasonably easy to shake out the water - essential to avoid black mould ruining the toy.

The front hatch comes off quite easily, but is easy to re-attach. Not 100% sure if it will last the distance, but overall the toys seem well made.

At the end of the day, though, a good stab at the essential range of toys for Octo-fans everywhere...

Got one of these for my 3 year old son today. He's a massive Octonauts fan so it's gone down well with him and he has enjoyed playing with the Gup A and Barnacles / Angler Fish. We got him a Kwazi as well but stopped short on anything else as we'd already been quite generous for an ad hoc (non birthday / Chrimbo) gift anyway.

He loves it but I'm not wholly convinced that the price matches up to the durability of the Gup and it will be interesting to see how long it lasts with some mainly water-based play.

[P.S. Didn't actually wait the 1 - 4 months quoted on amazon and picked one up in Toys R Us today. The range is in most big (and little) toy shops now so not sure why the wait is so long on this site...]

Received the Gup this morning and almost couldn't get my 3 year old out the door to nursery! He Loves it already.

You can wind it up and it travels along the floor. You can also play with it in the bath!

My son loves anythign to do with the Octonauts so this toy was always going to be a winner.

The only disadvantage I can see is that I don't believe it will take long for the lid to get snapped off....we shall see.....

I was initially put-off the Fisher Price Octonauts toys by their appearance in the photos and, to an extent, how they appear on the shelf. However, I saw a few of these toys out-of-the-box at a children's party and I started to change my mind - that along with my three year old daughter, M, being Octonauts crazy!

Basically, these feel more substantial and well thought out in-the-hand than the photos do justice. They are made from good quality materials, feel robust, and there are neat little touches such as the permanently printed-on decals that make the Gup-A and it's sister subs suitable for bath time play.

The Gup-A is my, and M's, favourite. Of all the Fisher Price Octonauts toys, this one most closely captures the look and spirit of the on-screen version - it has space for two Octonauts in the cockpit and another two in the cozy lab quarters at the back. Wind the propeller up and it also chugs along in the water, or do the same on dry land and the propeller steadily churns away at pleasingly similar speed to the on screen version.

Of all the Fisher Price Gups, it would seem this is the one that the company put the most effort into getting 'right', and they succeeded.

The hinge of the cockpit portion, etc. are designed to separate before breaking, and they are made of a soft material so that a fin portion may not be injured, either.
There is only a product of Mattel and he admires skillful structure.
The 5-year-old second daughter is playing frantically in the bath.
When the mailing cost to Japan was paid, 4000 yen or more were carried out, but probably, it is a toy with worth of that.

Very poor quality. The lid comes off easily and cannot be re-attached by small children. I imagine the tiny hinges will break soon. The propeller does not work well, hardly moves the toy through the water. The toy does not stay upright in the water.
Altogether disappointing. Octonauts programme is very popular and children really want the toys but I feel very cheated by this poor value and flimsy toy.

My two and a half year old loves all things Octonauts at the moment. At Christmas he noticed no other presents. This gup was a firm favourite to take off shelves at the shops. So our resolution to get him no big toys went out the window. He was surgically attached to gup B for weeks, now he needs (!) to carry the whole set with him everywhere. The gup A is correctly reviewed here, the 'motor' does nothing in the water, the front window falls off constantly (or it did all Christmas, it has since mysteriously vanished...). But the kids love it, and that's all we care about. It has the added bonus of fitting in lots of the octonauts, so everyone has a seat. So go ahead and buy it!

PS My parents keep repeating what good quality plastic these toys are made of... I can only say that with two boisterous boys and many hours in the bath, the toys are not broken and even the odd missing fish or lid turns up somewhere.

PPS I really really want gup x now...
