The Octonauts

The Octonauts is Little Miss's newest obsession. Let me tell you "Octonauts" is impossible to understand out of a toddler mouth, too. She kept asking me to record it, and I had no idea what she was saying to look it up in the guide.

It's essentially an adorable show with bright colors with a cast of characters in an underwater habitat. Through stories, they teach kids about different aquatic animals. The show is based on a series of books and aired a year ago in England but finally made it stateside. This means that all of the merchandise is very expensive due to the long trek across the pond. I assume eventually the toys will make it, but I'm not sure it'll be before Little Miss outgrows the show. Still, she still likes Chuggington and those toys finally made it here so there's hope.

So is Chuggington British? We still haven't watched it and Avery got a bunch of the trains for Christmas. She's still kind of caught up in Thomas.

I think they may redub, but the show aired over there first and all the merchandise came out over there first. Laura liked Thomas for a long time, but Chuggington is a lot more colorful which she likes. We managed to get quite a bit of hand-me-down trains which is helpful.
