The top retailers to find Octonauts toys

Is your little one’s birthday coming up, but your hard pressed to find the time to go out shopping solo? Online shopping to the rescue! We rounded up the top online retailers for Octonauts toys you can peruse from the comfort of your own home — and hey, maybe you’ll find a lil’ something for yourself, too.

Amazon Logo


Amazon.com is by far the best retailer to search for Octonauts toys. It has the largest selection and competitive prices.

Walmart Logo


If you’re looking for books and small action figures, Walmart.com is worth a look. For bigger toys, you’ll be better off seeing what Amazon has to offer.

Target Logo


Target.com has some fun Octonauts costumes and LeapFrog learning games, but you won’t find much by way of larger toys and games.

Kohl's Logo


Kohl’s does sell the Octonauts remote control Gup-K, but we found it for much cheaper on Amazon.com.

Shopping tip

When it comes to buying Octonauts toys online, Amazon.com seems to be the clear winner for both the best selection and the best deals. Before you snatch up a toy from another site, compare it to Amazon’s listed price to see if you can get a better deal. While some companies do price-match, this offer usually doesn’t apply to online purchases.

Who’s watching this show?

The characters you need to know

Captain Barnacles

Sea otter Dr. Shellington provides all sorts of interesting facts about the deep sea and ocean life, which really comes in handy when saving sea creatures.


Kwazii is an adventurous orange kitten who loves to explore new places and things.


Although Peso is not the bravest of the Octonauts, he can always be counted on to step in and whip out a bandage. He carries around his medical bag wherever he goes.


Tweak is the engineer extraordinaire of the Octopod. This bunny can fix just about anything.


Dashi is a dachshund dog who runs the Octopod computer room and monitoring systems. She also loves to take pictures of underwater life.


Vegimals, like Tunip, are half-vegetable, half-animal creatures that help out around the Octopod.
