Olive's one of our most sought-after items!!
Olive was an extremely friendly Giant Pacific octopus who lived in Elliot Bay in the Puget Sound of Washington state where she touched the lives of many divers. "Olive united the northwest diving community in a way that nothing else ever has. . . ." - Chris Jacobsen, a northwest diver. This sentiment is echoed by divers from all over the world. Our thanks to James "Sparky" Cutchall for suggesting this memorial.
This stuffed giant octopus is so lifelike and huggable, you'll love it at first sight! The length of 36 inches is measured from back of the body to the end of its curled tentacles. The soft plush tentacles are stitched in such a way that they bend and curl, making this octopus one of the most life-like stuffed octopi we've ever seen. Note that it even has "ears." The octopus is stuffed in a soft and yet sturdy manner that makes it extremely huggable for both grown-ups and kids.
One of this octopus's most outstanding features is its bright orange eyes! The center of the plastic eye is black, and the "whites" of the eye are orange. We included a photo (above) showing the face with the bright eye, defined eyelids, and the perky little ears. See a real octopus's eyes here. You'll have to scroll down the page to find the octopus, as the page starts with insect eyes.
Your plush giant octopus comes with a tag that says, "Octopus: The 'eight-armed' creature of the deep, the octopus is considered one of the smarter members of the undersea world. The body of the octopus is remarkable in the way it can change color and pattern to camouflage itself or threaten enemies. [Note: The tag refers to living octopi, not the stuffed ones!] The shape of the body is amazing as well in that octopi can alter their body shapes so they look like long thin sea fish. Eight arms are not used for movement since the octopus uses a water fueled jet system to propel itself through the briny sea depths."
What a fascinating creature! This one has been carefully designed to imitate the real thing and yet be a cuddly friend for you or someone you love.
