Bathtime can be a fun time for both you and your baby. Some little ones love being plopped into the warm water with bubbles. Others, maybe not so much. These baby bath toys are the best options to keep your little one entertained while they get clean!

Purchasing Baby Bath Toys

Which baby bath toys will be the best for your little one? These key points will help you make the right choice:

  • Mold-Free: The last thing you want is nasty mold growing inside your baby’s toys. There are toys specifically designed to keep this from happening. Look for toys made from waterproof, durable materials.
  • Chemical-Free: You don’t want any harsh chemicals sitting in warm bath water with your little one.
  • Developmental: Some toys are not only fun but can help your little one practice and learn important skills such as hand-eye coordination.
