5.0 out of 5 stars Squirty fun, 11 May 2011
This review is from: TOMY Aquafun Octopals (Baby Product)
This toy consists of a hollow plastic base which floats and provides a sturdy home for the 8 squeezy octupuses and a big hard plastic octopus.

The squeezy octopuses can be held underwater and filled so that they can be squirted. My two girls loved playing with these, though they did sometimes get a bit too giddy with them! Large plastic octopus `cup' has holes in the top and my kids loves pouring water into it and seeing it pour out. I also used to use this when washing their hair - they weren't a big fan of my 'chuck-water-over-their-heads' technique but if I poured the water through this it provided a fun shower which they enoyed.

During the summer we also played with this in the garden, the soft octopuses are brilliant in hot weather. We didn't have water pistols and didn't really need them, they contain enough water to play with but too much. They also don't squirt too far (when a toddler is squeezing them anyway!) and therefore you don't risk incurring the wrath of the neighbours by accidentally soaking someone sun bathing over the fence!

These are easy to clean, simply squirt the water out - over time you may find that they start to get a bit manky inside from being damp - but simply put them in a bowl of water with some cleaning fluid in and take water in and squirt it back out a few times to clean, obviously they will then need the same treatment with clean water to make sure there's no detergent left in them.

In a nutshell: Whether in the bath or outside in a paddling pool, these Octopal toys were used by my girls for a couple of years, some of them did eventually break but only after taking a lot of abuse, these lasted a lot longer than most of their toys.
