One of the best things about our new house is the fact that we now have a bath tub to bath Calleigh in. Back in England we only had a shower and struggled bathing her in the small bath tubs for babies.
The first time we bathed her here it didn't go so well. She cried and refused to sit down. I think the sheer size of it may have frightened her a little bit. So on our next shopping trip I picked up some fun bath toys to make bath time a little more fun in the hopes that she would be less afraid.
And it worked.
She had a great time splashing about and playing with her new toys.
She even said a new word "bubbles" (see the video at the end).

The bath toys I decided on were by Munchkin.
The first thing I brought were some bath crayons, she loves colouring on things and more often that not it is the floor or the walls. So when I saw these I thought it was a great idea that she could colour all over the bath tub without being told off as it rubs off really easy.
I also picked up some bath time turtles. They float on the water and each one has a different interaction. One has a mirror, another has a rolling ball and the last one has little balls inside to shake about.
Finally, and personally my favourite, are the bath dunkers. This fun little toy includes a net which suctions onto the side of the tub and 3 little puffer fish balls which also can be used as squirters. Calleigh definitely had the most fun with these and spent most of her time in the bath putting them in the net.

All three toys have proved a great success in making bath time more fun and something we look forward to. In fact they worked so well we had tears coming out the bath instead of getting in.
And here is the video of Calleigh saying her new favourite word!
