The boys love bath time at our house, but getting the four year old into the shower when we need to give him a quick cleaning is a huge challenge. In order to make the shower a more exciting option, we have been using Nuby’s Octopus Floating Bath Toss for entertainment. And while the product certainly floats (as the name suggests), the boys also love using it as a tossing game in the shower.
The octopus, about the size of an adult hand, has six tentacles (Yes, I acknowledge it is not anatomically correct, but I am okay with that) that hook up at the end. Children can toss the three rings onto the tentacles, trying to get “a ringer”. Like a child version of horseshoes or other carnival game favorites, the Octopus Floating Bath Toss encourages gross motor skill development, strategizing, and precision. Both boys love playing the (Little Guy-dubbed) “Apple-poose” game and I imagine we will be bringing the octopus into the pool and possibly to the beach this summer!
