What Is The Octonauts?

Oh, it's only one of the most popular kids' shows on television.

Featuring a cartoon cast of eight underwater exploring animals who live in the Octopod, the show follows their adventures as they race around to help other underwater creatures who are in trouble

The creatures that the Octonauts come across and talk about are real marine animals in their natural habitats as well, so it has a slight learning element to it. However, the team uses sci-fi-inspired technology to get the job done, so it adds a little bit of cool, futuristic stuff in there too, so it appeals to a wide audience.

Here's the cool part: the show works with actual marine biologists to ensure the presented information is accurate. Not only that, but the show works with the same marine biologists who worked on Pixar's Finding Nemo. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration has even released a podcast to help parents talk to their kids about the show and the real-life science behind it. 

As reported on by the New York Times, many parents have found that their children being to rattle off facts they've learned from the show. Entertainment that's also educational - what parent doesn't love that? 

Almost all of the Octonauts toys on our list are involved in some sort of mission to save an animal and include all important accessories and creatures to play up the storyline.

Where Can You Watch The Octonauts?

At this time, one of the only places to watch The Octonauts in the United States is on Netflix. Episodes run about 23 minutes long, and all four seasons are currently available to stream. Bonus! There are even two longer specials/films on Netflix as well - Octonauts and the Caves of Sac Atun, and Octonauts & The Great Barrier Reef

And, be sure to mark your calendars: Netflix is releasing a third Oconauts film on March 30, 2021. It's called Octonauts: The Ring of Fire. It follows the crew as they embark on their most dangerous mission yet - exploring the legendary Pacific Ring of Fire and rescuing sea creatures impacted by tsunamis and volcanic eruptions.

We expect more exciting Octonauts toys to released with the film, so we'll be sure to add to our list of the best Octonauts toys as they become available.
