Children love to play with toys in the bath and we were delighted to receive some bath toys from Vital Baby to try out.
First up to try was the Stick & Slide (RRP: £7.99). Suitable for children from 18 month plus. It comes in a bright and colourful box and included in the set is one duck and one frog squirter, two floating water skis to put the frog and duck onto, two water slides with two sets of suction pads – one for each slide. The slides stick to the smooth bathroom tiles or the side of the bath, then the frog and duck shoot down the slides on their skis into the water. There is an instruction sheet which is easy to follow. We had lots of fun with it in the bath with my grandson, the animals are very cute. He didn’t want to get out of the bath.
Next up was the Vital Baby Swim Rings (RRP: £12.99). This set includes six brightly coloured sea squirters, which are really cute, my grandson loved them and they fit perfectly into his little hands, and six equally coloured swim rings. They are colour co-ordinated so your baby can match up the colours and matching each animal to the corresponding coloured ring. They are also good for learning the names of the sea creatures and practise counting them all. All the rings join up to each other, so baby can pull them all along in the water. These are again for 18 months plus.
Both bath toys will enable your baby to develop motor skills and hand-eye co-ordination while having fun. After bath time the animals and sea squirters should be emptied after use by squeezing out the excess water and regularly cleaned with a diluted solution of sterilising fluid to help them to keep mould free. Both products are good quality and made from safe BPA, latex and phthalate free materials so it’s ideal if you have a teething baby who chews everything in sight.
These toys kept my grandson happy in the bath, he really had fun playing with them.
