One of the most interesting things about Lieutenant Kwazii is his past as a pirate. He may not be a pirate anymore, but the kids can pretend to be their favorite Octonauts cat with an old-fashioned treasure hunt!

“Octonauts, let’s do this!”



Barnacles’ catch phrase becomes the theme of this party game.  You take the role of Captain Barnacles and give orders to the rest of the Octonauts. In “Simon Says” fashion, each child must only obey commands beginning with “Octonauts…!” Keep speeding things up to make it harder – the last Octonaut left can win a special Octonauts party favor box!
