1. Press the release button and remove
the snorkel lid to expose the bubble
reservoir.
2. Carefully fill the bubble reservoir with
bubble solution. Do not overfill as
this may cause the bubble solution to
spill. Do not dilute the bubble solution,
using concentrated bubble solution will
produce the best bubbles.
3. Return the snorkel lid and snap it back
into position.
4. Choose a surface on the wall surrounding
the tub where the VTech® Musical
Bubbles OctopusTM can be mounted
securely. The area should be clean and
dry before suctioning the unit to the wall.
For better suction, we suggest wetting
the suction cups before attaching to the
wall. Once the unit is attached to the wall,
test the strength of the suction by pulling gently on the unit. The
suction cups may not stick properly to textured tiles. We recommend
that the unit be removed from the wall after each use as the strength
of the suction cups cannot support prolonged use.

Batteries must be changed by an adult.
We do not recommend submerging the unit in the water. If
the unit does get submerged in the water, please dry the unit
completely before adding the bubble solution.
To prevent drowning, never leave a child unattended in the bath.
Use a thermometer to check the temperature of the water
before sitting a child in the bath. Toddlers have very sensitive
skin and can burn easily if the water is too hot.
For best results, use only high quality bubble solution.
Do not drink the bubble solution.
In case of eye contact, immediately rinse the eye with clean
water.
Please check the suction cups periodically as they may detach
after prolonged use.
Use caution when handling the unit when the reservoir is full
of bubble solution, the bubble solution can spill easily.
When the unit will not be used of an extended period of time,
empty the bubble solution from the reservoir and wipe the unit
clean with a damp cloth.
Children should not play with the suction cups when the unit
is fastened to the wall as the unit may detach and cause
injuries.
