Bath time for your baby, toddler, or young child can be stressful, or it can be a play time that never ends. Some kids will scream and fight and avoid the bath at all costs, and others thing everything in the bath is a toy. An ideal solution to both these problems is to find them some bath-friendly toys. These are our top 10 favorites.
These figurines make perfect bath toys for any avid Paw Patrol fans. You get all six pups in the set, and they are cute and well-made. They are a bit small for toddlers and babies, around 1.5" tall, but they are perfect for older kids.
These are an excellent learning toy for bath time. You get all 26 letters and 10 single digit numbers in the set. They float, or stick to the wall tiles around the bath, making them a nice bright decoration for your baby and a fun, educational toy for your older child.
Squirting bath toys are a source of endless giggles. This barnyard set includes eight farm-themed animals that your baby or toddler is bound to love. They float and bob, and squirt water when squeezed. They can also hold air and be used to make bubbles under the water.
Just as much as squirting toys, floating bubbles are great fun for babies and young children. These bubbles have little moving items in them. As the bubble floats, the item rocks around inside the bubble. The colors are bright and fun. The rings around the edges move round.
Swimming bath toys are an all-time favorite. This cute little penguin is perfect for a little girl. When you wind the penguin up, she floats on the water and flaps her flippers, swimming along. She is best suited to toddlers, not babies.
For older children who need their minds kept busy during baths. This toy has a magnetic fishing rod and 3 characters that bob just under the surface of the water. Using this rod can help your child develop their hand-eye coordination in a fun way.
If you have a little inventor, they don't need to stick to Legos, puzzle toys and other living room building toys. This set of bath pipes lets your toddler or child create their own water puzzle, positioning the pipes so the water can flow down through them. The coolers are clear, and the paddles move, making the experience more exciting.
Another adorable floating bath toy for older children. This one is a floating boat featuring three detachable fish. The fish are dressed as students, and the boat is labelled "school of fish". The fish toys squirt water. The boat can be used for pouring water, making it a fun toy, but also great for rinsing your child's hair.
If you want a toy that'll work from toddler to child, this is a great one. You get four adorable boats in bright colors, with numbers painted on them. They float nicely and encourage your child to play using their imagination. They are easy to grip for even the smallest toddler hand. They are magnetic, so they connect in a row. And they grow with your child, staying fun form 18 months to 5 or 6 years, saving you money on toys.
Another take on the swimming toys that have been around for ages. This one is suitable from 12 months up, as it has moving parts. When you pull the string, the propeller starts turning, making the submarine fly forward. It is fiddly enough to encourage motor skills, but not so much as to be difficult for your toddler.
