Toys have this weird way of creeping steadily into your life until all of the sudden you are overwhelmed and just don't know how it happened. Bath toys are no exception to this phenomenon. In fact, I often think bath toys are even worse because of the prospect of piling up, stewing in water, and acquiring mold. Thus far we have managed to limit Weston's bath toys to a few balls and a cup. We recently had the opportunity to try the Nuby Fish Swoosh bath time play-set and I was cautiously optimistic about it not contributing to the beginning of a cluttered tub.
Turns out my optimism was not unfounded. This bath set is not only a play toy but a toy chest (of sorts). I love that it suction cups to the side of the tub. You can even place it on the side of the tub closest to you so that when you walk in the bathroom it isn't even visible. Can I just reiterate how refreshing it is to have a bathroom that doesn't have bath toys all over it?! I love that the net can be cinched at the bottom and then functions as a place to dry out the toys and hold them in one place. The little "fish" balls are also squirters. The squirting is fun but I will be honest and say I have thought about super-gluing the little holes shut to prevent water from getting stuck inside and molding. Paranoid mom move? Perhaps, but it is a pretty good idea if you ask me.
Ok, so enough about what I like as a Mom. This toy is also kid tested and approved. Weston loves to dunk the balls through the hoop. This toy really is the perfect basketball hoop for a baby. When I cinch the bottom of the hoop Weston also likes to collect all of his toys in the hoop. This toy is promotes hand eye coordination which is always a postive.
The Nuby Fish Swoosh is marketed for the 18 month plus range however Weston is only 15 months now and really loves it. I honestly think he would have enjoyed it as early as 10 or 11 months.
