True Story: I got some bath toys from Seoul that squirt water. They’re super cute and the kid like them. Unfortunately cleaning them is a huge headache and we can’t always do it right. This past weekend, Hubs picked up the penguin and noticed the mouth was dirty. Mold. Gross. So I tossed out all the tub toys. Even the ones that didn’t squirt because they are all kept in the same basket so they had to go. On my quest for non-squirty toys, I came up thin. All the toys were either foam numbers (which we’ve had before and also mold) or toys that squirt. I don’t understand. So, if you’re like me and don’t want your kids playing with moldy toys, here are 5 alternatives. And for full disclosure, the links are affiliate links to Amazon which means I make a couple pennies if you buy these.
A Plastic Watering Can. I like this one because it’s fairly inexpensive and it easy to clean. It also helps with washing and rinsing hair for kids that aren’t ready to lay down in the tub just yet.
Stacking Cups. The First Years Stacking Up Cups are a great choice, they are bright and fun colors and your kid can practice pouring from one cup to another without having to worry about mess.
Learning Resources Primary Science Mix And Measure Set is just plain awesome. You can work on measuring, counting, adding, subtracting. It’s always a good time when you can incorporate learning into play.
Okay, so these are tub toys but they’re easy to clean. I love Boon products and Boon Fleet Stacking Boats Bathing Toy are no exception. The bright colors make me so happy.
And finally, Crayola Bath Dropz. Who needs toys when your water changes color? I love that these don’t stain my tub or my kiddo. 😉
