bath toys

Bath toys are one of those things you probably haven’t given much thought to. How important are they? And does the type of bath toy you purchase matter? After finding mold growth as a first time mom years ago, I would argue that an easy-to-clean bath toy is a must. And fun bath toys are essential for babies toddlers because they’ll keep them happy and entertained during bath time. They’re great for little kids, too. My girls are 3 and 5, and love playing pretend in the bath. Make bath time fun with favorite bath toys and water play toys. And bonus: They are easy to keep clean! 


The Best Sensory and Bath Toys for Babies and Toddlers


As a mom of three who’s had some experience with bath time, I have found that silicone bath toys the most durable toys. And they are great for the bath and sensory play. Use them with shaving cream, water, kinetic sand, or even mud. The smooth surface is ideal for easy cleaning – just use warm water and soap. My kids always have so much fun in the bath – it’s the perfect time for lots of imaginative play. I’ve found that toys that allow them to be creative are best and keep them happy and engaged. And at the end of the day, the last thing you want is for bath time to be stressful, or to have dirty, moldy toys in your kids’ little hands.
