Here at Yellow Octopus, we scour the globe for all the very latest gadgets, toys, gifts, and games: searching high and low for products that are cool, inspirational, quirky, bizarre and downright fun!

We haul everything unique we find back to our Melbourne HQ: this is where all your orders are shipped from.

Check out our team mascot Olli to see his journey around the
world searching for cool products.  

Olli the Octopus: Maestro Magnifico

When it comes to normal octopi, they're usually only interested in finding tasty crayfish, swimming about, and picking their noses. Olli is no ordinary octopus. Olli has a vision and with the help of his loyal team he'll see it done. His vision is for Australians all over this land girt by sea to enjoy the world's coolest, craziest and quirkiest gifts, adding smiles to faces and laughter to homes. His dream has finally materialised and now everyone has access to Olli's collection of awesome doodads.

Bella: Princess Celestia

I wish I could tell you exactly what it is that Bella does, but that would impossible, seeing as she helps out with everything! From marketing solutions, to product buying, to making the best hot chocolate any cold octopus could wish for, this mother of two manages to juggle all this in her exceptionally capable hands. Now that’s girl power!

Keith: Pixel Samurai Creative

Yes, we sell Magical Unicorn Bandages. Yes, they’re possibly one of the coolest things ever made. But how do we make sure everyone is aware of this? From making our products look awesome on our site, compiling our much loved newsletters or even designing our whole shopfront to creating magical videos, our graphic guru creative Keith, gives every product the platform it needs to shine. If it weren’t for him our website, blog and newsletters would look boring and bland and you’d never find out about our Unicorn bandages would you? Domo arigato, Mr Samurai.

Matt: Marketing Maestro

It’s all very well and good having the absolute best gifts under the Australian sun, but word needs to get out to all potential Octopus aficionados about what our Cave of Wonders has to offer. Luckily, we have this flame-haired marketing maestro to make sure the name of Yellow Octopus is shouted from all the rooftops and heard through every grapevine. Matt is a magician at marketing matters and has spread the word of awesome gifts to every corner of Straya and beyond. His ideas just keep getting cooler and quirkier, so keep an eye out for exciting developments happening in the very near future!

Brittany: Wordy Wizard

She may not have a magic quill, but Brittany wields her wordsmith witchcraft across the lands of Yellow Octopus to conjure capital copy and content. Products descriptions, blogs, newsletters and more; her sentence sorcery is the stuff of folklore. The only words she’s missing is the contents of her Hogwarts letter, just a few years overdue now. But until they teach her to use a wand, she’ll continue churning out magic in the only way she knows how.

Steven: Artist Extraordinaire

Seen some incredible artwork on our website or socials? That’s our old mate Steven! He’s always ready with a pen to sketch up some seriously brilliant designs for your personalised gifts or our promotions. In fact, he’s the only person who had to draw his own little avatar for this page! Sometimes just for fun we’ll say “Hey Steven, draw a bin chicken sinking a VB tinnie!” and he does such a good job that we simply HAVE to put it on a mug for you. I haven’t told him this yet, but I’m SURE he must be a wizard. I’ve never met a muggle with this kind of talent!

Jessica: Geek Speak Specialist

When you’ve got a problem that only a true geek goddess can solve, Jessica is your girl! Call the office and she’s most likely to answer the phone, visit us in store and it'll be her smiling face at the door! She’s more organised than a perfectly played game of Tetris, usually wielding her phone and replying to your emails and helping sort your orders all at once like a true eight-armed octopus. She’ll use the force to fix your woes, and cast Accio to help you find the perfect gift.

Sathish: Bean Counter

In our Yellow Octopus Warehouse of Wonders, we have over 4000 products sitting and patiently waiting to be bought by our prized customers. Looking after all that awesomeness takes a rather awesome man. Our Chief Bean Counter, Sathish, knows where every single one of his 4000 products is located (we tried testing him once… he still beat the computer even though we cheated). He and Derek make sure that we always have the best of the best immediately available for our customers and also watches over our diligent packing staff as they prepare everyone’s orders. Ain’t’ no bean Sathish hasn’t counted.

Zak: Grandmaster Zash

When trouble goes down at Octopus HQ, from the small (oh no! We’ve misplaced our stock of vanishing underwear!) to the large (oh no! The dustbin’s on fire!), Zak is always the first to sort it out. And when any of our customers experience any major difficulties, he’ll sort out the issues in an instant. He’s the quick fixing, moustache growing, yo-yo spinning team member everyone loves to love.

Kylie: Rainbow Dash

Kylie is one of the only people in the world where you can sense her smiling, even when she’s only sent an email. Along with the rest of the team, she looks after our customers over email, through online chat, and over the phone (it’s always nice being able to speak to a real human) with care and consideration. Weirdly, nothing ever gets this ball of bubbly energy down. Us guys at the office are starting to wonder if she puts anything into her morning coffee…

Cassie: Warehouse Whiz

Cassie and Carla are our dynamic duo reigning over the warehouse! Cassie is cool as a cucumber, always ready to take on the day with a smile. When we’re sending you your parcels jam packed with fun or receiving awesome new arrivals, she’s the best person for the job! Not to mention the only person we’d trust to prepare snacks… Cassie keeps the warehouse pumping so smoothly, sometimes I think she must have more arms and legs than Olli!

Carla: The Pack Panther

Cassie and Carla are our dynamic duo reigning over the warehouse! Carla is a feisty one, known to crack the whip on occasion! I’m not kidding, we bought her a whip. We had to confiscate it, it was a whole thing. But what else would you expect from a superstar like Carla?! She’ll pack up your parcels in style, keep the postie in their place and pump some rad tunes in the process. Seriously, I DARE you not to dance when you walk past her desk!

Stefanie: The Whole Package

Stefanie is the Hamper Queen! You’ll find her buzzing around the office chatting to local suppliers to source the best stuff for our prepared gift boxes. She sources the most scrumptious snacks, delicious drinks and grand little gifts around to put a smile on your dial. The queen of style and class, even when her ridiculous co-workers are trying to convince her that poop is funny. Which seems to happen quite often. That’s some serious skill!

Sir Gift-A-Lot: Metallic Hulk Cake Smasher

He’s mysterious, he’s manly, he’s… Made of metal! Our wonderful knight in shining armour keeps watch over our shop and all the wonderful gifts waiting for homes. He’s a true gentleman, and can be spotted with a bunch of flowers in hand when he’s feeling romantic. Don’t underestimate him though, he’s still tough as nails! You’ll always find him with his shield and spear at hand, towering over the enemy… But we know he’s a softy at heart!
