There really is no better place for babies and toddlers to play than the bath. It's warm, it's relaxing and it doesn't make too much of a mess (sometimes.) It's also the ideal place to experiment, and learn—especially with the addition of fun and engaging bath toys. As a mom of two, I realized early on that playtime and bathtime are not mutually exclusive and spent countless hours (especially in the cold, dark days of winter) pouring, scooping, and sudsing up right alongside my kiddos.
Over the years, I learned a thing or two about what makes a bath toy worth buying. So, in the spirit of sparing you from my mistakes (bath crayons, I'm talking about you) I've rounded up some of the best available on the market today. To qualify, they had to be easy to clean with no holes for growing mold, visually appealing for both parents and kiddos, and provide age-appropriate opportunities to learn and explore.
