Darah takes a bath almost every single night. It’s an important part of our nighttime ritual, and gives her one last chance to get out some energy before we put on jammies, read stories and then go to bed. She loves to play in the tub, especially with her daddy, who takes the lead for bath times so that I can get a bit of work done.
Lately Tim (yes, Tim) has been complaining that Darah needs some new bath toys. I think he has exhausted his imagination for what her current collection can do. Admittedly, she’s not had anything new on the scene in about a year, so the request was fair.
I had been looking around for something cute, fun and not inclined to hold on to water and grow mold (a tall order when it comes to tub toys), and then I was contacted by one of my very favorite companies, Boon, to see if I wanted to check out their tub toys, Boon Creatures. Oh heck yes!
Boon Creatures are characters you might find in the sea, and they have interchangeable tops and bottoms so that you can create any combination of underwater animal that you wish. This promotes imaginative play. Darah likes to make a “crab-whale!” They also have holes in the tops of their heads that make pouring water extra fun. Darah especially likes to watch the water run out of these. They are flexible, so if Darah sits on a toy on accident, she won’t be injured. They are also durable, and are withstanding her play (and the daily baths) beautifully. I really love that they dry out quickly and don’t become water repositories, which leads to all sorts of mold issues (my biggest complaint with most of her tub toys). These retail for $13.99 and are a great buy, as I can tell that they will still be going strong by the time baby #2 is ready to play in the tub. Hooray for tub toys that last!
