Pros:Introduces colors, classical music and languages.
The Bottom Line: My son loves Octoplush's head, legs and music. Maybe your baby will love Octoplush for the same reason. But it is not a must-have.
I received Octoplush for my second son at my baby shower. When he was first born he had little interest in it. But at four months it has become his favorite toy. If he's cranky it brings a smile to his face as he bats at the big blue head.

What about this blue plush Octopus could he find so entertaining? His appearance, maybe? Octoplush has a stitched on pink smile, black eyes and blue eyebrows and dimples. He wears a white sailor hat, a white collar and a blue bow tie. He has a velcro tab on top so you can hook him to an infant carrier, side of a crib ... anywhere you really want. And he has eight legs. Each leg has a colored, smooth circle on the end with a shape on it. The shapes are a yellow star, blue rain cloud, red cherries, purple grapes, green leaf, orange orange, brown bear and white snowflake.
Or maybe my son enjoys Octoplush's musical talents and the fact that he's trilingual. If you push on Octoplush's face he has two classical songs he sings. And if you push his feet he will say the name of the corresponding color. There is a switch next to his battery compartment inside his head that lets him say the color in French, Spanish or English.
So, as you can see - with Octoplush's looks and smarts - he can be very endearing to a baby with taste. And taste him my son does - as he tries to stick those legs in his mouth. But, what Octoplush lacks is brawn. After two months of play he no longer says yellow in any language, he has a small hole on his satin snowflake and he has holes under all his legs. Looks like I may have to buy another.
Good for parents to know is that next to the battery compartment you will also find the off button and two volume settings depending on how loud you want him. He takes two AA batteries. But you need a small screwdriver to open the compartment.
