Special thanks to NCircle Entertainment for providing copies of Here Come the Octonauts for Review and Giveaway. All opinions expressed here are my own, as always.
Sound the Octo-alert! Welcome to 2014, friends! It’s a new year, just brimming with the possibilities of new adventures. If you’ve got little ones who love the Octonauts, then get ready for some serious fun in the Gup-B, because Here Come the Octonauts is available for the very first time on DVD starting January 7th. Woo hoo! You can pick it up at Walmart and many other retailers and grocery stores nationwide.
If you haven’t had the pleasure of meeting the Octonauts crew, let me introduce you!

A daredevil orange kitten with a mysterious pirate past. He loves excitement and travelling to exotic places.
CAPTAIN BARNACLES BEAR
A brave polar bear extraordinaire and the leader of the Octonauts crew. He’s always the first to rush in and help whenever there’s a problem.
PESO PENGUIN is the medic for the team. He’s an expert at bandaging and always carries his medical kit with him in case of emergencies. He’s not too fond of scary things, but if a creature is hurt or in danger, he can be the bravest Octonaut of all!
These are just a few of the delightful creatures you will find in this fun underwater adventure. We learned about Octonauts last January, and they have become such a hit with my kids that they made the “best of the best” list for 2013!
You can find Octonauts on weekday mornings on the Disney Channel’s Junior block. But if you are like me and don’t have cable, then the DVD is definitely the way to go! The series has been nominated for an International EMMY Award, and has received nominations for Best Animate Preschool Show in 2011 and 2013.
