There is nothing cuter than a tub fill of kids. Well maybe not a tub full, but one or two is pretty darn cute. And my kids love bath time. Love, love, love. I am trying desperately to get the oldest two to switch to showers for the efficiency of it all and it is not working. I think a big part of the resistance is all the playing they do in the tub. They splash, pretend they are mermaids, and play with their big ole pile of bath toys.
Aren’t they cute and fun and harmless? Or are they?
How cute are they now? I about threw up when I cut them open. My kids put these in their mouths. And it isn’t like I haven’t tried to clean them. They go in the dishwasher. But obviously they can only get so clean when they have water trapped inside for long periods of time.
What led me to do this experiment? A few weeks back, I was invited to a blogger event for Sassy. They showed us many of their products and shared with us their commitment to making toys that serve a purpose. They work closely with developmental experts to design toys and products that promote all sorts of awesome developmental skills. Let me just tell you that this former pediatric physical therapist was giddy with their understanding of early childhood development.
But out of all the cool products I saw, the one that I just could not get out of my mind was their Stay-Clean™ Silly Squirts™. How brilliant is it to make a squirty bath toy that splits apart so you can clean it? And to make it more fun for kids, you can mix and match all the different animals. So I knew I needed to share it with you, but I also knew I needed to see what was lurking in my bath toys. Needless to say, the bath toy bin is no more. Except for these cuties.
Sassy, Inc. invited me to participate in the 2010 Sassy Blogger Bash and provided products for my review free of charge. This post was submitted to Works For Me Wednesday at We Are That Family.
