One thing that my 17 month-old daughter really enjoys is a bath! I can say "bath time" and she is up the stairs and in the bathroom in seconds! We recently tried out a new toy in the bath and is was a winner. The NUBY Octopus Floating Bath Toy is a simple, yet engaging toy that keeps my daughter entertained for the entire bath time.
The toy comes with an octopus and three colorful rings. The rings are a great size for little hands and the bright colors make them easy to spot even in bubbly water.
Right away, my little girl began to grab the rings and figure the whole thing out. Hmmm. Too small to fit around it's head. How about... ah hah! Put it on those little arm things.
After she got all the rings on the octopus, she took them all off and began to get creative. I never knew that letting water flow through a hole could be so fun. She just sat there with the ring under the faucet with not a care in the world. It went on and on and on. :) Eventually, bath time had to come to an end, but that didn't not stop her from carrying one of the rings with her to her room and holding on to it until I put her to bed.
One of my favorite features of the NUBY Octopus is that there aren't any of those annoying little holes that fill up with water. Bath toys that don't dry out are not fun. Of course, I also love that this toy encourages exploration and hand-eye coordination. And if you happen to have more than one child in the tub at the same time, they can both play with it. Just let the octopus float around or give it a spin. See who can get their ring on first! You can get your own Floating Bath Octopus HERE.
