Boon Pipes Water Pipes Bath Toy

I love any toy that is great for a child’s imagination and creativity. These boon pipes are a very unique kind of toy.

Boon Pipes is more than just a bath toy. It is 5 separate plastic pipes. A child can play with a single pipe by blowing through it or using it to pour water, or they can attach the pipes together and make a sort of chain. They can then, let the water run through them.

The pipes have a little suction cup so you can easily stick them to the tile wall of the bath tub.

I love that toddlers can create anything that they want to create. Each pipe is a different color and has a different function. One has a fan and one has wheels that helps the water move through it.

This toy is a great value as it is less than $10 on Amazon.com.

There are also some other cool Boon toys that partner well with this toy. One is the Boon Jellies Suction Cup Bath Toys. They are so cute!

These are little jellyfish that can attach to the side of the tub with the suction cups or they can attach to each other.

The other Boon Toy that is neat is the cogs water gears. They also attach to the tile. They can move separately or you can attach them and make them move together. And just like the Boon pipes, the boon gears are each a different size, shape, and color.

Baby Bath Games

Baby Bath Games are fun! And they are a great way to bond with your little one. Also baby bathing games play a huge role in encouraging learning. Here are some of the baby bath games that are popular with toddlers.

  • stackertoyStacking games teach hand eye coordination. Plus stacking bowls and other objects help teach balance. The higher the stack goes, the harder it is to keep balance. A great example is this Munchkin Snail Stacker Bath Toy.
  • Fishing games are a great way for kids to play in the bath tub. They can throw in their line and fish for some cute friends. Catching fish will keep your child engaged and want to stay in the tub for more fun.
  • Ring Toss is a fun baby bath game. And there are a lot of different kind of ring toss games available. My favorite is this nuby Octopus Bath Time Toss. He is adorable and his leggs catch the different colored rings.
  • Squirting games are also really fun for the bath tub. Kids love to squirt things. And there are many squirt toys made especially for the bathtub for kids to squirt their little hearts out.
  • Catching games are similar to fishing games. You can throw some smaller toys into the tub. Then your child can use a net to fish them out. When you count as you do it, you are also creating a teaching moment.
  • Throwing games can be fun as well. You can add a small basketball hoop to the wall of the tub and then let your child try and get the ball through the hoop.
  • Counting games can be fun as well. There are lots of bath toys that come in a variety of colors and sizes with large quantities so your little one can practice counting.

These are just a few baby bath games that you can play with your baby or toddler. Bath time is a great way to bond and play with your child.

Baby Bath Toys and Calming Overstimulated Baby

image courtesy of http://www.freedigitalphotos.net/Baby bath toys serve a lot of purposes. They keep your child occupied, they educate, and they are fun. But they can also help to soothe and calm.

One of the tricks that I learned early on with my babies was that a warm bath is a great way to calm down an over stimulated or overtired baby.

The warmth of the water for some reason always has a calming effect. And if you turn down the lights a bit and even add some calming music in the back ground you will find that their little eyes will start to get heavy. I also like to add some calming baby bath wash like Aveeno Baby Calming Comfort Bath. It is scented of lavender and vanilla which is known for it’s calming effects.

Baby bath toys can also help to calm your child and get them ready to tradition from bath-time to bedtime.

It is important to choose a “comfort” bath toy that helps make your baby feel secure. I find that often a small soft baby doll will do the trick or a small chew toy helps to soothe baby in the bathtub.

When choosing a chew tub toy, be sure that there are no small parts that can cause chocking. I like squirt bath tub toys or foam bath tub toys. Neither of these make noise and they are safe to chew on.

Buy using “quiet time” toys in the bathtub, your child will be relaxed and ready for bed once the bath is done. They may even be falling asleep as you are dressing them in their pajamas.

Do you find that a warm bath with some baby bath toys helps to calm baby?

If you are looking for a floating bath tub toy for your toddler then you will want to consider this adorable turtle family. This set includes a large mommy turtle which can carry the three babies. The Mommy turtle is 8″ long.

bathtime fun water drumsI love this drum set for the bathtub! It is perfect for toddlers because they get to make music while bathing.

This two piece drum set is made for making music in the bath tub. It comes with two yellow drum sticks. Your child will have so much fun playing music they will not want bath-time to end.

You and your child can change the sounds the drumming makes simply by changing the level of the water in the drums. It will be fun to experiment and see what tones you like the best.

 

But, no worries, these Bathtime Fun Water Drums is also perfect for outside of the tub as well.

This toy comes with a booklet full of songs. And there are color coded notes to make learning easy. Your child will be entertained and playing music for hours.

Believe it or not, these drums sound good. And I promise you will not be too annoyed with the drumming. It is loud enough that the kids can hear but not noisy enough to get on the nerves of us adults.

Children can pound on the drums and make different sounds. Kids will also enjoy looking through the bottom of the drum to see through the bath water. They can spy out their other toys that might be laying at the bottom of the tub. The drums also work to hold water as a sort of boat since these drums float easily. So they can easily work as a cup to pour water over your head and rinse out shampoo.

These Water drums are very durable so they can handle a lot of play and will last for several years. You will be able to pass them down to other children.

Rub a Dub Monsters in My Tub

rub a dub monsters in my tubThe reason why parents give their kids bath toys to play with is it helps to keep them entertained while bathing. This way you don’t have to worry about the child trying to stand up in the bath and then slipping and hurting themselves. Plus it is easier to wash them when they are content and sitting still rather than squirming all over the place.

The perfect toys for kids are those like the adorable monsters that are small for little hands. They are vinyl so they are easy to squeeze and they make a squeaking noise. But kids like that they are squirters! So you better watch out, Mom or you might get wet. I love the bright colors of the little guys. And they sure are trying their best to be scary looking, but it just isn’t working because they are so cute and funny.

These monsters come with their own mesh bag that easily hangs with suction cups. No worries about these guys not getting dry. But if your kids like them the way many kids do they will want to play with them long after the bath is over.

These Rub a Dub Monsters are great for infants and toddlers any age, but I find that toddlers between 6 and 12 months like them the most.
