Bath time is often the highlight of the day in my house, Zoe just loves splashing and kicking about in the bubbles.
She tends to get a little fussy in the evenings, and a bath each night tends to settle her and kicks off our bedtime routine.
As soon as I realised she loved the bath so much I rushed out and bought all of the bath toys ever! We have cups, rubber ducks, turtles, whales… Which is all well and good for a fun filled bath but finding somewhere to put all of them when bath time is over was a bit of a challenge.
Our bathroom is small with little storage space, we have one small wicker set of drawers where we store spare razors and toothpaste, there is just no room for all the toys. We got a net bag which sticks to the wall, which is great but not quite big enough for some of the larger items. Also, when you fancy relaxing in the tub with candles and a good book, a load of toys about the place is a not conducive to a totally relaxing grown-up bath.
The bath tidy is in the shape of a pelican, there are some eye stickers to stick on, but to be honest I think it looks better (and less creepy) without. It is very simple to slide onto the side of the tub, and you can easily lift it off, or turn it around when not in use. You can easily lift the beak and access toys with one hand, while holding the baby with the other, which is a huge bonus as I do sometimes forget to get the toys out before I pop her in.
At first I thought it was a little cumbersome, but after using it for the last two weeks its grown on me and I actually find it incredibly useful. I think as she gets bigger and she is able to grab toys out of the pelican herself (and put them away hopefully) it will really come into its own and maybe even become a toy in its own right. I can imagine us naming him (I’m thinking Scuttle, from the little mermaid) and lifting the beak to make him talk… Hours of fun.
So in conclusion, this bath tidy is a handy and fun way to store all of your bath toys in one place, and can easily be lifted or hidden from view when grown-ups fancy a soak. At £15 I think it is very reasonably priced and good value for money.
I would like to see this product in a few different animal or colour options too, maybe a green frog or blue whale?
Thank you to Baby Thingz for sending me this product to try, I received this product for free, but all opinions are my own.
