Bath time is fun time in our house, so we like to find toys that continue to foster that love. The Skip Hop Bath Toy collection has a few that fit the bill. The Starfish stay-put stacker, Octopus Ring TossÂ and Sort and Spin Fishbowl Sorter Â looks like a toy to do just that.
The Starfish stay-put stacker takes a classic toy and brings it into the tub. The bright colored foam pieces that stack onto a post are perfect for developing fine motor skills.
The great thing about this toy is that you have the option to stick the post onto the bottom of your tub for a stationary toy or you can leave it to float. For your older kids, the foam rings also stick onto the wall allowing for some additional playing options.
The Octopus Ring toss is a fun toy that sticks onto the wall, allowing for an interactive ring toss game when you have multiple kids in the tub or simply with mom or dad. An additional fun element to this octopus is the opening in the top where you can pour water Â which streams out of theÂ octopusÂ tentacles, and we all know that if our kids are kids who enjoy the water, that that will be something they find entertaining.
Finally, the Sort and Spin Fishbowl sorter is probably the toy I was most enthused about, simply because it had the most variety to it. It sticks to the wall or floats while the kids do their sorting.Â The fish come in different colors, allowing for work on those skills as well as matching their shapes.
And, as an added element of fun, each fish is a squirter, so if you allow a little mess in the bath, the kids can have a little water fight if they get all their matching right.
