Last week we threw out all of the bath squirt toys. Want to know the big secret?
I felt relieved – like a weight was lifted from me when those annoying little squirters went in the trash.
The boys are insistent that they have all of their bath toys with them when they take in the bath or shower. Since the boys share well and the toys distract from the parts of the shower they don’t like (mainly washing their hair), I generally let them make their own choices about what to bring into the bath. I always regret this decision, though, because it means I spend five minutes post bath squeezing the water out of the squirt toys to try to prevent mold growth…(which, by the way, I think is an impossible cause.)
This is why I love Nuby’s Waterfall Turtle for the bath. The turtle conveniently floats in the tub, serving as a catch all for other small toys. The hard plastic makes it easy to clean and less likely that mold would develop.
When the toy is lifted up in the air, water gently streams from the holes on the turtle’s shell. My boys find this ridiculously entertaining and will fill and empty the turtle dozens of times each bath. However, the controlled flow of the waterfall makes for minimal mess from splashing water – a big plus in this momma’s book.
The Nuby Waterfall Turtle is available for $6.99 on Amazon. Don’t forget to join me next Tuesday, February 19 at 9 PM EST at the #NubyComfort twitter party.
