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.
If 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.

This 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.

Bath time is not just for getting clean. For a toddler it is time for creative play. Bath Time was always play time with my kids. They would love to play in the bath tub with their favorite toys. When my son was little he had a huge collection of floating boats and action figures. He loved to play pretend. Some times I even had a hard time getting him out of the tub.
Just look at the fun this little tot is having with these Edushape Floating Blocks
. They are a “wet and stick” so they can stick to the side of the tub or on the tiles. You child can create all sorts of things with this floating block set. Imaginative play is really good for toddlers and small kids.
