My 4 years old son learned every episode of this cartoon by heart, and yet keeps watching whenever he is allowed to use the computer.
Thus, I cannot miss entering this competition :D
Good luck to me ;)

"OCTONAUTS AND THE DEEP SEA VOLCANO ADVENTURE" review by the Editor of Mumsnet Tower Hamlets:

After watching every single part of CBeebies’ “Octonauts” series for so many years with my children we were thrilled to witness its first ever theatre adventure at Fairfield Halls in Croydon. Octonauts and the Deep Sea Volcano Adventure, from the producers of Peppa Pig and Ben & Holly’s Little Kingdom, is the brand-new children’s stage show.

At the theatre entrance children were offered special Octonauts activity books, stickers and temporary tattoos, which my children were absolutely pleased with. During the play the entire audience – children as well as their parents - became the part of the show from the beginning till the very end. We had a great opportunity to have an adventure in deep sea with all eight brave Octonauts team and meet many sea creatures from the cartoon version once again.

As learning Cadets the audience were encouraged to assist the Octonauts team in several situations such as bringing the power of the Octopod back or calling Kwazii when he was away. While singing with Luke, Kwazii and Captain Barnacle, it was amazing to see all children and parents leaning right and left simultaneously to turn the wheels of the octopod. There were a lot of funny scenes such as Turnip and the red button, finding the giant turtle where the audience was filled with children’s giggles and laughters.

The second part of the play started extraordinarily in the dark underwater with the black background, octonauts in their gaps discovering new sea creatures. The culmination arrived, when Captain Barnacle and Bob fish left the Vulcano area in the last second before eruption. At that moment you could see clear worry in young audience’s eyes and this was followed by happy cheerings when he came back safe and sound to the octopod.

I still wonder how they managed to make the cartoon characters so similar that the children were delighted to meet their heros in real life without noticing any difference from what they envisaged. The voices of characters were also were exactly the same as in the cartoon which added to the show’s credibility before the children’s eyes as well as ears.

We all thoroughly enjoyed the show and would recommend everyone to watch it. You can check the Octonauts Live website to find out more about their upcoming performances.
