Hubby and I try not to buy Little One too many toys. Quite frankly, she's got enough. Oh, okay. The truth is that I am tired of finding toys everywhere and want to keep them contained!
I did splurge the other month and found this amazing bath toy for her. Why? Well, I felt badly that she was playing with empty containers in the tub. Sure, she could care less. She thought they were fun.
I wanted to get her something that would stimulate imaginative play and help her with hand-eye coordination/development of motor skills. I found this:
It's the Rub a Dub Whale of a Time bath toy made by ALEX.
You simply suction cup the whale to your bath wall and your child can stack up all the whale's friends. All together, the set includes five pieces. Each cup has a different function (spray, twirl, spin).
Little One LOVES her Rub a Dub Whale of a Time toy! All the parts move and spin when water is filtered through. Little One really enjoys pouring water from one cup into another. It's amazing how a toy like this can teach young children about problem solving skills. Little One has learned that if she doesn't scoop water into the cups, there will be no spraying, twirling, or spinning. She learned very quickly how to make each piece operate.
Another thing I love about this toy is that you can stack the pieces and let them drip dry!
You can find this product and other toys by ALEX on the company's website. I purchased Little One's Rub a Dub Whale of a Time bath toy at Chapters Indigo. Chapters Indigo carries a wide range of Alex products as well.
