A fun and educational bath toy

Bath time with the right bath toys should provide an educational, multi-sensory experience that will promote healthy baby development. This stacking fountain is so much fun. It comes with stackable boats and squirting characters. The boats stack up to create different water structures and it's great to create a different structure each time. Ashley loved playing with this toy over and over again, but she especially loved the squirting scuba guys.

Bath toy? Baby shower? Both! 

The bathroom is a technology free zone and bath time is practically the only tech free time in the day. It's the perfect time for bonding with your baby. A great battery operated bath toy that I would recommend, especially for beginners is this battery operated submarine. It comes with a nice activity center that teaches cause and effect. It can also be used as for washing your baby and is great solution for smaller babies that are afraid of the shower head.

Babies are little scientists

Great bath toys develop eye-hand coordination and motor control of hands and fingers, like all great toys. Add that with the sensory contact of water and together fun bath toys will bring out the little scientist in your baby. If you have a great entertaining bath toys, you won't have to work hard to get them to enjoy bath time. They'll love to share bath play with you, as long as you don't mind getting splashed. 

Babies love to play with the bath tap. The want that endless stream of water but you find yourself nervous about the water temperature or the bath getting too full. This is what makes this bath toy so great. A battery operated spout that draws water from the bath tub enabling to maintain the water level and water temperature. It enables Ashley that endless stream and offers so many ways to play with water. Super Safe. Super Fun. We Love It!

Seriously a terrible experience.

We tried everything to make bath time a calming and connecting experience but ever since she was born, Ashley would scream the moment we put her in the tub. It was horrible!

We tried using different kinds of tubs that we borrowed from friends, changing the water temperature and all kinds of sponges, but nothing helped - Ashley would scream the through the entire bath, every single time. Ugh. 

Bathing was impossible. It was literally the worst time of the day. I read that bath toys helped but they did not work for me; maybe she was too young. It's not that I didn't try. I purchased all possible bath time boats and duckies. Ashley was so busy screaming that it was useless, she didn't notice them and I had my hands full.

I guess that the combination of Ashley growing up a bit, together with me gaining more experience in bath toys (I'm a total expert now!) is what brought the change.

Today, Ashley screams when bath time ends…so I felt I wanted to share my knowledge gained with miserable parents who just don't know what to do to make bath time better.

The HUGE difference: Battery operated bath toys

So what did I discover? I discovered battery operated bath toys that are a whole entire activity center. They have so many developmental advantages and they make bath time both fun and educational, which, now that Ashley is big, matter a lot! Smart water play provides a great new experience where kids can discover things that float, sink and splash, not to mention stop screaming at Mommy.
