An Overview On Bath Toys

Choosing bath toys for your children can feel like a big job. After all, the toys you give kids in the tub each night will impact how easy the nighttime routine turns out. Give children playthings they love and they will splash happily; choose lackluster toys, and they’re likely to fuss. No one needs to make bedtime any harder.

Fortunately, there are countless bath toys on the market, so there’s something for every little one’s preferences. Many of these toys even teach important concepts, like building, letters, numbers, colors, animals or even basic physics.

Choose toys that are free from PVC (polyvinyl chloride) and BPA (bisphenol A) if you can. This is more important if your children are very young and still put things in their mouths. These chemicals exhibit toxic tendencies if they are present in large quantities or over a long period of time.

Check the age recommendations for a toy before you buy, both to be sure it’s safe for your child and to increase the likelihood they will love to play with it.

DWYM Fun Fact

Did you know that bath toys have been around for about 80 years already? Their popularity grew exponentially with the invention of the rubber duck in the 1940s.

Rempel, a company from Ohio, created a rubber duck that walked and was hollow. It was originally intended for use on land, but it made its way into bathrooms across America.

The rest, as they say, was history. Today, bath toys run the gamut from rubber ducks to waterwheels to ring toss games. There’s truly something for every kid to love.

The Bath Toy Buying Guide

  • When selecting bath toys, read manufacturer instructions carefully to ensure the toys are used in the proper manner. This is an important step for safety.
  • Carefully dry bath toys after each use, or allow them to air dry. This is an important step to prevent mold or mildew.
  • Bath toys are often inexpensive compared to toys designed for use outside the tub, so it doesn’t hurt to give several types a try until you determine what your child likes best.
  • Rotate bath toys in to your nightly routine to introduce new concepts and teach things kids haven’t yet learned. When the tub starts to feel too crowded, remove some toys that are getting less attention.
