This Octopus is a real gentlemen! With his moustache, tophat and monocle, he's got so much style. He can't wait to meet you and to make your life more sir-like! :) This Octopus is inspired by the internet meme 'like a sir'. Use this very cute Octopus to decorate your house, or give it as a gift to kids! They will like him a lot! The Octopus in the pictures is 10 inches / 25 centimeters tall, and between 10 and 15 centimeters wide when he's standing on his legs. There's no wire or anything like that needed to make the Octopus stand on his feet, so this item is very suitable for little children!
