If your child is a little older, and you want to teach them good bathing practices, then it’s a great idea to have them bring a doll (waterproof) along in the bathing tub. Ask your child to bathe the doll, as you bathe them.
Listed below are top four toys that will help make bath time a fun experience.

In order to make bathing time more fun, you can have your child host a race from one end of the bath tub to the other end. The child is only allowed to make small waves to help the toy boats move ahead. The first toy to reach the other end, wins!

These stacking cups make for some of the safest bath toys as they are made with good quality durable material and have a hole in the bottom, which helps drain away the water. Since there is no water collection and retention, this eliminates the chance of mold formation.

Your toddler’s tiny hands will thoroughly enjoy grasping at the uneven surface of these bath toys. What’s more is that they are going to love it when the toy lights up when it is put in water.

Note: Unless they come with a specific cleaning tool with the toy, you may want to avoid squirting toys, as they tend to gather mildew and mold.
To make bathing interesting, and something that kinds will look forward to, you can set some ice with colored water (use food color). Pour these colored ice cubes in the bath tub along with the toys. Even as the ice melts, kids will enjoy being in the colored water.
