Best Bath Toys Buying Guide & FAQ
How to be Safe with Electrical Bath Toys
Ensure any battery-operated toys suitable for the bath are watertight. It is important that they are watertight to prevent any water from getting into the battery area. While there isn’t a lot of power from batteries to cause an electrical injury, there is the chance that chemicals from the batteries could get into the bath water. Chemicals which your little one could then get into their mouths, so make sure you check that there is no chance of water leaking into the toy. No doubt, any water leakage will cause problems to the working function of the toy too and possibly even break it completely.
When bath time is over make sure the electrical toy is thoroughly dried with a towel to prevent possible condensation from getting in and damaging it.
How to Dry and Store Bath Toys
For squirty toys, ensure that the water is fully squeezed out of them. Towel dry or allow toys to air dry around, but not in, the bath.
Do not store baby bath toys in closed containers as any water that is remaining inside the toy will not dry effectively. Instead, there are lots of open spaced baskets and containers that can stick to the bath, wall and shower which are handy and more suitable for baby bath toys.
What to look for when Buying a Bath Toy
As well as the safety implications you also want to select age appropriate toys to keep your child engaged. A one year old won’t be as stimulated with a toy suitable from birth as a baby would.
Additional properties to look for when buying bath toys are BPA-free materials, smooth rounded edges for babies and durability.

You can effortlessly pick a product which is most suitable for you and your baby’s needs.
As big baby shark fans in our house, we had a lot of fun with the Zuro Robo Alive Pinkfong Baby Shark, my little one loved singing along with it and whenever there was a tantrum coming on, we would remind him this toy was waiting for him in the bath and he was straight in.
We are also big fans of the Nuby watering can and the Munchkin toys as they are all very durable and suitable for him throughout a range of ages. The watering can is very easy to maintain and has lasted him a long time.
