Well, it was good that I was prepared for disappointment - I got 5 different types of Octonauts, but only 2 out of the 5 I wanted. I've now ordered 20 more sets in the hope of a better haul.

(I wanted Dashi, Shellington, Inkling, Tweak and Tunip. I got 4 Kwazii's, 3 Barnacles, Peso, Shellington and Inkling)

This is sad. Although at least it proves that they don't open one box of 5000 Tunips and fill the whole order from that.

[Also, I wonder if we should adjust our model given that both narratively and based on the data we have, we expect many more Kwazii's and Barnacles...]

Good luck! Do you want me to have a snoop in bar hill tesocs? I'm there most weekends, but maybe posting a Tweak is more faff than it's worth...

Success! My second order produced:
7 Tweaks, 3 Tunips, 3 Pesos, 2 Kwaziis, 2 Dashis, 2 Shellingtons and an Inkling

Interestingly, it doesn't lend more weight to the hypothesis about there being more Barnacles and Kwaziis.
