Top 5 Best Bath Toys for Your Toddler | 2017 Reviews
The moment you put your once-tiny baby into the bathtub, you know that you’re playing a brand-new ballgame. You’ve lost the ability to hold her with one arm while scrubbing her hair with the other; you can’t even use “mom-style brute force” to hold her in place long enough to clean her feet once she’s in the tub. A toddler has a mind of her own, and you’ll be fighting a losing battle trying to assert your dominance. You’ll need her cooperation in order to get her clean, and the way most people do that is by making bathtime fun – with bath toys.
Old favorites like squeaking rubber duckies and floating Mickey Mouses (Mickey Mice?) may hold your young one’s attention for a little while, but there are many cooler bath toys which will fascinate her long enough to make it through an entire bath peacefully. Some will even help her learn some important skills while you’re getting her clean.
It probably doesn’t need to be said, but we’ll say it anyway: we’re only including completely safe and non-toxic playthings on our list of the top 5 best bath toys for your toddler. Many have won awards from various parents’ or mommy’s organizations and all are intriguing options for your child’s bathtime. There’s one other important thing they all have in common: they’re all inexpensive yet well-made, so you can pick up several of them while not having to examine each one with a magnifying glass to ensure that they’ll be safe to throw into the tub with your most-precious possession.
