Have I told you that Clay's favourite program is the Octonauts on CBeebies? It has been his favourite ever since he started watching TV, and he has conveniently taken over Abby's Octopod toy she received from Santa when she was 3! His collection grew ever since, with Gup A being his all time favourite! He would play out the scenes that is showing on TV with the relevant toys, sleep with them (as hard as they are), and take them out for walks.

It's his 3rd birthday next Friday and we are adding Peso's Gup E and Kwazii's Gup B (finally!) to his collection. And having heard that Clay is a big fan, the lovely PR from Fisher-Price has also kindly offered him the newly launched Fisher-Price Octonauts Tweak's Octo Max Suit to review too!

The Fisher-Price Octonauts Tweak's Octo Max Suit (rrp £24.99, suitable for 3 years+) is the new addition in the latest Octonauts series. The toy comes with poseable arms and legs, Tweak in her midnight zone suit, air powered carrot launcher with 4 carrots, a sea creature and 3 AG13 (LR44) batteries.

The screen can be opened and Tweak can be placed inside the suit (she can be held in place by slotting her foot on the pin in the suit, and her hands can fit on the levers at the same time). The suit's claw can be opened and closed to hold things. The button in the front controls the light and sound (see video), and the pump at the back pumps air into the detachable carrot launcher to fire the carrots. Turn the launcher to fire the next carrot.

Clay absolutely loves his new Octonaut toy! As soon as he saw it he shouted "Octonaut!" and stomps on the same spot with excitement!

We have always been impressed with the quality of the Fisher-Price Octonauts toys, but I think that the Octo Max Suit is even more solid than the others. We have always liked the sound function on the other Octonauts toys, and think that the light function is a great addition to the range! The carrot launcher is quite funny and me and Abby have been fighting over firing the carrots, upsetting Clay a bit at the same time as he kept shouting "It's MINE!!!".

I'm also impressed with the attention to details. Tweak can actually fit perfectly between the pin that holds her in position, and use both hands to hold the levers inside the suit. The toys are very attractive and are as colourful as the show! The air-powered feature (Octo Lab has the same feature too) is so simple yet so cool! Clay is probably too young to figure it out, but it has certainly stirred Abby's mind (the wonder of science!).

Clay is very pleased with the new addition to his Octonauts toys collection, and we can't wait to play out more of the series' scenes with them!
