Octopus can be easily distinguished from other squids because they have eight tentacles. This is why they are called octopus, because the Greek word "okto" means eight and "puos" means foot. If they feel threatened, they release an ink-like liquid, which spreads in the water like a huge, dark cloud. The octopus can thus disguise the direction of its escape. Moreover, the animals are masters of camouflage because they can instantly change their body colour from grey-brown to blue-green, red or pink. Fun Fact: Octopuses have three hearts. One is for the body and the other two pump blood through the gills.

Our "No Worries" returns policy
Our refunds and returns policy is to be read in conjunction with our Terms & Conditions.
You may return any faulty goods at our cost within 14 days of receipt. Please contact us to make relevant arrangements. (Longer periods apply for Christmas gifts etc). We will comply with all relevant consumer laws relating to any faulty items. We are open most days after Christmas - see our contacts us page for relevant times.
You may return any goods that you have changed your mind about*, at your cost, as long as the goods are unopened and the packaging still in perfect condition, within 7 days of receipt. (Tracking is on all sent items). You may request an exchange, credit or gift voucher. Returning them in good condition, refers to their state when they reach us, so this relates to how you send them back to us, so mailing a boxed item in a post bag, usually ends up with the item damaged. You are best to box most items to ensure that they arrive in good condition. Any order sent and returned will be credited/exchanged less postage costs. Goods purchased in store will need to have a cash register receipt. Online orders will be recorded in our system. We only accept returns on products purchased from our store, so if the product was a gift, you need to check with the purchaser. We are a small toy store and cannot afford to accept other stores faulty or unwanted items. Proof of purchase is required. We always look after our customers, you just need to show you are one of them!
