We bought some of these at the "Dollar Tree" tonight for our niece and nephews. Nancy, check out the second pic to see the name of the product.

Looks like Ollie went into business for herself!

The way Ollie got her name - Before she arrived, I told my husband he could name our octopus. Without even a pause, he said "Ollie, Ollie Octopus". I thought it was a fine name. And after Ollie turned out to be a girl, it was still a fine name.

Great find there and what a coincidence.At first I thought Ollie was supposed to be a female. I only realised he was a he when I noticed everyone refered to him as a "he".

Like most of our octo owners, I assumed that I had a male. (It's very difficult to determine the sex of a bimac. ) Then, when I saw the eggs, I knew Ollie was a female and began referring to "she" and "her".

Just saying I thought she was a female right from the start. Where did the eggs go in the end, I was never really clear on that.
