10 Best Bath Toys For Toddlers & Babiesby Elizabeth MacDonald
Are you even a parent if you don't have a collection of miscellaneous cups, bowls, and toys thrown in the bottom of your bath tub?
Bath toys- ohm bath toys. Such a Love/Hate relationship. They are fun to play with, yes; however, they help your toddler create a larger water mess, AND they can grow mold overnight.
I’m not a fan of soaking and scrubbing bath toys regularly… Ain’t no mama got time for that. I just trash things at the first sight of mold. Yes, I’m horrible, but whatever; I’m not judging you either. I polled the social media masses that are the fans of My Baby’s Heartbeat Bear and found that these bath toys are the current top ten favorites! What say you? Are you on the hunt for some new goods, or do you have a favorite that didn’t make the list?
Top 10 Favorite Bath Toys
Anything from your kitchen! Plastic spoons, bowls, whisk, and cups. These are even more fun when bubbles are added to the mix. (Heck, I would throw in some plastic play food too.) Oh… Don’t forget a colander! It’s a waterfall of fun!
#2 Regular Old Toys
That’s right, toys NOT labeled for the bath tub seem to be the most fun for a lot of toddlers out there! Let those My Little Ponies take a dunk in the tub! Just make sure you don’t throw something electronic in…
Easy to clean, multi-purpose, easy to store, and fun!
#4 Plastic or Rubber Animals (without the squeezable water hole)
The key here is to find animals that are NOT labeled for the tub. Those holes meant to squeeze and shoot water create the perfect environment for mold to grow – and fast. Toddlers love putting toys in their mouths, and that means they would be bathing in and possibly sucking on mold. NO THANK YOU.
This is a safe and reliable company that moms everywhere seem to love! The tugboat ranked the highest on our poll, but the other options weren’t far behind.
#6 Bath Crayons
I have no opinion on these, as I am not about to scrub my walls after every bath! Ha. But so many other moms do. You all are rockstars and I bow down because these look like fun.
Learning and getting clean at the same time? SURE! My kids just bit these foam things, but apparently many other kids actually play with them! I do like to use them outside of the tub for crafts though.
#8 Bath Pipes
How cool are these! I love that they grow with your child. You will have to set them up for a toddler, but once your little one hits about 3-years-old, he should be able to create a pretty cool path on his own.
These will definitely make a toddler smile!
#10 IKEA’s Tub Boat
Stacking cups and a boat in one!
