    There is this huge giant octopus plush toy they used to sell at the local aquarium. I tried to get one this last weekend, but they were sold out.
    There are conflicting reports on their avalability from the staff at the site, and they are not able to order me one. I know they have them at the Seattle Aquarium, but I don't know anyone in Seattle.
    Someone wanna help a fellow Tonmo'er out?

    i'm sure i saw large octo plushies at the Moody Gardens gift shop at some point... i know for certain they have giant squids. since you've just been there, i'm sure you checked, though?

    Toy octos

    The Melbourne (Australia) Aquarium has some a while back that were blue, but I suppose thats a little far to come to buy one...

    Why not phone the Seattle Aquarium? - I was able to order from the Monterey Bay Aquarium (my plush giant squid) even though they had no catalog, either paper or online.

    I was recently in the Friends of the Otter gift shop in Monterey, and I saw one stuck on top of a display. Here's the number 831-373-2747 or www.seaotters.org.
