CBeebies’ The Octonauts thrill young shoppers in Stratford

Lucky little ones met their favourite explorers of the sea, The Octonauts, when they dropped into the Stratford Centre to say hello to their fans.

Captain Barnacles and Kwazii the daredevil kitten, popular characters from the CBeebies TV show, met children of all ages and had their photos taken with them last Thursday (Feb 16) in the Broadway shopping mall.

Local parent Luke Wilson said: “Big thanks to the staff for organising the Octonauts day. My little one Liam love it.

“I think he must have had more meetings with them than anyone, you have made on little boy very happy. Thank you.”

Families were also able to get involved in a “make’n’take” animal themed mask workshop, taking home a glittery carnival themed face mask.
