Best Bubble Bath Toys

VTech Sing and Learn Whale Bubble MachineToddlers love to play with bubbles. But bubbles are not just for outside. There are many bubble bath toys and bath bubble machines available for toddlers. The thing that is great about playing with bubbles in the tub is that it doesn’t matter what the weather is like outside.

If you have a child who hates bath-time, then you may want to consider adding bubble to bath-time. Bubbles are fun and perfect for encouraging your child to take a bath. Your child will play while getting clean. And that is a good thing. So here is a list of some of the Best Bubble Bath Toys that I have found.

VTech Sing and Learn Whale Bubble Machine Bath Toy

I love this Whale Bubble Machine Bath toy. Not only does it provide lots of bubbles, but it also plays music. There is actually eighteen different melodies and songs, plus there are phrases that toddlers will enjoy. I also like that there are some interactive buttons each for a different sea animal. This is great for helping to develop fine motor skills. Kids get to learn about different animals as well as colors and they think they are just having fun!

This Bubble Machine Bath Toy easily attaches to the tile wall because it comes with suction cups. Simply pour some bubble solution in the spout and then watch as the fun begins.

VTech has a few other interactive bath toys for the tub that include bubbles. Here they are:

This bubble machine will keep your child entertained. They will have so much fun trying to catch the bubbles and pop the bubbles. What fun! This toy is the perfect gift for toddlers.

thomas the train bath buddiesThomas the Tank has been a popular item for kids for quite a few years. I know my son loved Thomas the Tank. So I had to add this fun bath toy to my blog.

Thomas The Train: Bath buddies Fun Pack is the perfect toy for a toddler boy or girl. It is colorful and includes three different toys with three different activities. There is a Thomas car that is a squirter. So your child can squeeze it and suck up some water with it and the squirt it at the other cars or anywhere.

There is a boat shaped car that works great as a scooper and there is a yellow car that is a strainer. These fun friends are sure to bring fun to bath time. And they are also fun outside of the bath.

These Thomas the Tank bath toys are are the perfect size for little hands to hold onto and enjoy.  I think if you child likes Thomas and his friends then this set of bath buddies would be a great addition to your toy collection.

B. Fish and Splish Boat

B. Fish and Splish BoatThis B. Fish and Splish Boat is and excellent bath toy for a small child. I like it for several reasons. The biggest reason being that there are lots of activities to keep your child entertained.

This boat floats in the bathtub and contains a cheerful captain with a white beard. And there is a colorful life preserver so all the toys will be safe.

There is also a fishing hook that kids can use to catch fish. The neat thing with these fish is their back fin (tail) is in the shape of a sort of hook. It really is cute. And since the fish have a hook, it makes it easier for children to catch the fish. This activity is excellent for hand eye coordination. Which makes this a great toy for learning. There are four fish included in this B. Fish and Splish Boat toy for bath tub.

There are also 3 nesting cups as well as an Octopus comb and a whale nailbrush. These are all great items to help encourage learning. Your child can learn to sort and stack. And one of the cups has little holes in it so when the water comes through it creates a sort of shower which is loads of fun.

If you want an excellent gift for a toddler or for several kids then this is the perfect gift. It is a winner for bath tub fun, but would also be great for the sand box or swimming pool.

I also love the fact the clean up is really easy. Simply put the smaller toys, fish and other items below deck until the next bath.

In conclusion the B. Fish and Splish Boat is a great deal for the money.

Bathtime Fun Water Drums 4010

Does your child love music? Then this ALEX® Toys – Bathtime Fun Water Drums 4010 will make the perfect gift for you little musician.

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.

Adorable Octo-Sorter Bath Toy

When it comes to bath time with toddlers, I always love toys that encourage thinking and learning. This Octopus Bath Toy is brightly colored and soft to the touch. It is great for playing both in the bathtub as well as out of the bathtub. It floats and is available is available in five colors. The colors available are Blue, Yellow, Red, Purple and green as in the image above.

This floating bath toy is really cool. It is a sort of puzzle that floats in bathwater. There are 5 different shaped cups that are numbered and they each fit into the slots in the Octopus’s feet.

I like that this Octo-Sorter is very reasonably priced and is a great educational play buddy for bath time. Children become familiar with shapes, colors and can also practice counting. There are endless ways to play with this toy.

This colorful friend would also be fun to bring to the beach.

When bath time is done, simply hang to dry or simply place in a bath toy storage so it can dry out completely until the next bath.

Boon Water Bugs Floating Bath Toys with Net

boon water bugs floating toyIf you are looking for a toy to help toddlers with developing their fine motor skills then this is a great toy. It is a toy net that is used to collect three little bugs from the water.  Kids develop their hand eye coordination as they work to scoop the bugs up one at a time until they collect all three bugs. It also becomes a challenge for little ones as they try to collect all 3 bugs at the same time.

The net is available in two colors, green like the image picture or orange. This toy is recommended for children 9 months of age or older.

This bath toy is super easy to keep dry and free of mold as there are not holes or any places for water to hide. It is a plus that there are no sharp corners on this toy so there is little chance of injury. I also like that clean up is easy as well. Simply scoop up the bugs and you are all cleaned up.

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.

14″ Lola Bath Time

Little girls love to play with baby dolls  And 14 Lola Bath Time is adorable. She isn’t just cute, but is very realistic looking. I love all of the detail that was put into her face as well has her happy smile. I mean look at the wrinkles. She looks like a real infant.

This bath time doll is 14 inches tall and is vinyl. She also is anatomically correct. Plus she looks just like a real baby, but since she is vinyl it is okay if she gets wet.

Children learn a lot through play. And while bathing Lola, your little one learns to clean but also how to be gentle and give cuddles as well as dressing.

What little girl wouldn’t want to bring Lola into the bath with her? Lola has her own Pink robe with matching slippers!

Float FroggyThis is the best bathtub toy for toddlers. This cute frog is an electronic water fountain that works automatically. When you lay the frog on his back, water squirts up like a fountain. Plus this  comes with 3 little cups that nest together inside of the frogs belly. You little one can fill the cups with water, or stack them into a tall tower, or simply nest them. My favorite part is the fact that this bath toy is interactive. When you child presses on his tummy the frog plays music and says a few cute phrases.
