PRODUCT ASSEMBLY/ INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS

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.

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.
