The new game helps children develop their knowledge of ocean science, life science and ecosystems through using signature Octonauts gadgets to clear obstacles and more. Players can take on missions led by Captain Barnacles, ride along with Kwazii to rescue sea stars and help Peso treat injured sea creatures. Young explorers will build critical thinking skills along the way, key to developing confidence and understanding in the early stages of science.
Children will also learn about sea creatures and explore different ocean habitats whilst listening to creature sounds and viewing real photographs from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA)’s Office of Ocean Exploration and Research (OER), improving key problem solving skills.
Gail Fisher, UK & EMEAA content and licensing manager at LeapFrog, said: “Octonauts is an exciting new licence that we are thrilled to add to our ever-expanding game portfolio and we are sure it will be very popular with parents and children alike.”
Octonauts is available as a cartridge game or a downloadable app and works with all LeapPad learning tablets, Leapster Explorer and LeapsterGS game systems.
