All kids love to play with toys in the bath tub. At least mine do, my 10 year old would probably still play with Hot Wheels in the tub if I didn’t yell at him to take a shower. My daughter will take anything she can into the tub with her. Some toys are just not made to get wet, or be submerged for extended periods of time. You end up with mildew, rust and a scratched up tub.
Keira got a great opportunity to try out a real bath toy, Bath Blocks. She received a Coast Guard set and when the box came, I opened it up to check it out and I wasn’t sure if it was something a 5 year old girl would like. When it was bath time and I told her she got a new toy to try out, she sought out the package on her own.
She was so excited she would not let go of the box until bath time and as soon as I left the room she had the packaging torn apart so she could look at all the pieces.
Once I showed her how the platform floated and she could use the blocks to build on top of the water she didn’t ever want to get out of the tub. I showed her the blocks stick together when wet and even more so when soapy!! They even stick to the sides of the tub. Even when she got out of the tub (finally) she took her Bath Blocks around the house with her everywhere. Since she has got them every day, at least once a day she tells me she stinks and needs to take a bath. But I know her real motivation. These foam Bath Blocks seem very sturdy and I was impressed with the amount of different blocks that came in the box for her to build with. The Coast Guard boat and helicopter are so cute, I even caught myself playing with them as well.
Special Note: Dipping BathBlocks in soap or shampoo suds increases their stick to tub walls and other blocks dramatically!
BathBlocks empower children to create their vision as they experiment with geometry, addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, balance, structure and cause-effect.
BathBlocks have won Oppenheim Gold awards. BathBlocks are made from bacteria and mildew resistant EVA and contain no PVC or phthalates.
