Anyway, after 2 mins I realised that there was an air leak (the pump size is fine for this toy!)
Unscrew all the screws underneath and you can separate the top from bottom, including the floor. You will see there are 4 orange air tubes leading to the central switch (3 go to the accessory outlets and one to the pump). It is the central switch that is the issue.
Unscrew the plastic clip that holds the rotating switch and remove (you will see the air selector it falls into two bits, do t lose)
The issue is that the plastic retaining clip is not held down tight enough by the two screws. Simply pack the centre hole (the bit the dial fits too) with some cardboard rings so the clip can be tightened down. Reassemble making sure the sound button remains in place.
Bingo, one push sends the rocket a good two foot and the volcano actually erupts (it is a toy remember and we don't want to have to wear PPE :)
Hope this helps
My son did not want us to return the toy so we ended up buying one of the additional deep sea rover toys sold separately in order to improve the play value of the set. The air powered saw which came with the additional set can be propelled (slowly!) by the pump on the Octolab but I resent the fact that we needed to spend more money on an extra toy to give it the play value it should have had in the first place.
All in all very disappointing and certainly not worth £40. I think Fisher Price really need to consider a radical redesign of this toy in order to make sure it works as intended. If you have an Octonauts mad child my advice would be to go for one of the other Octonauts toys like the Gup X or the Octopod which have heaps more play value and won't result in your child screaming with frustration every time they play with it!
The Octo-lab is a nice addition to our collection. I just wish that Fisher Price had made the pump more effective , included a sea creature other than just one jelly fish or made something glow in the dark. I am hiding the packaging from my children because it pictures a couple of Octo-buggy vehicles to buy separately which aren't yet available.
Overall, I'm pleased to have it, but the quality of the design does not match the high quality of the television series or the recent book "The Octonauts Explore the Great Big Ocean".
