Make dolphins jump. Build a coral reef. Explore the deep sea. Create your own aquarium. These are just some of the fun things you can do with MarcoPolo Ocean, a “digital sandbox” for kids to play in that sparks their interest in the most unexplored part of our planet – the ocean.

Build and Explore
Five build-and-play activities bring the language and the images of the ocean to life. Ocean is playfully narrated and animated to reinforce vocabulary, physical attributes and ocean concepts.

*Coral Reef
*Marine Mammals
*Fish
*Boat
*Submersible

Free Play Exploration
The open ocean is a personal aquarium your child can explore however he or she chooses!

*Explore from the shoreline all the way down to the sea floor
*Steer your submersible and boat through ocean waters
*Add marine animals and fish to the ocean and interact with more than 30 different species
*Investigate by tapping, dragging and swiping where the animals live in the ocean to see their natural behaviors and how they interact with other animals

*The wide variety of animal species that live in the shallow and deep parts of the ocean
*Ocean landscape
*Construction and characteristics of a boat (shipping vessel) and submersible
*Characteristics of fish and marine mammals
