Isn’t it funny how kids can change at the bat of an eyelid?
Change what they want, what they like and dislike, I mean.
Just when you think you have everything under control they decide to mix things up and turn everything pear shaped in a big way.
This happened to us recently with Smiley our 17-month-old.
Ever since she was born she has loved the bath. She’d splash and kick those deliciously chubby little arms and legs around smiling and squealing with delight. Then one evening out of the blue, she decided she did not like the bath anymore. She did not like it one little bit.
Within seconds of me putting her in she would stand up and plead to me with outstretched arms, ‘Me, me, meeeeee!’ begging to be taken straight out.
Our once playful, winding down ritual for the girls had turned overnight into something that completely exasperated me and distressed Smiley.
When Tommee Tippee generously asked me to personally select some of their products to review and giveaway recently, I headed straight to their bath product selection. It was time for me to bring in the big guns to resolve this bath issue.
When it came time for the big reveal of the new bath toys, Smiley’s eyes nearly popped out of her head. In an instant she went from detesting the bath to this.
Tommee Tippee’s collection of bath products can only be described as bright, fun and practical.
Both our 17-month-old and three-year-old love the toys.
The Bathtime Stack & Float Fun Play was an instant hit. Our three-year-old stacked and unstacked it with great speed, while Smiley, once her big sister allowed her to have a turn, liked to take the top toy off and then put it back on over and over again. I know she is going to get a lot of enjoyment out of this toy as she continues to develop and learn how to stack and unstack it in the correct order.
The Tub Appliques have been a winner also. The only problem with these is that there’s not enough! After much arguing over the appliques, the girls came to a truce (with the help of me) – two sea creatures each. Our eldest not surprisingly took the pink starfish and octopus, while Smiley happily took the blue and yellow fish and orange crab.
The girls have a lot of fun sticking and unsticking the creatures on the side of the bath. Smiley likes to drop them into the water and search for them under the bubbles. When she finds one she raises it above her head and cries out ‘Yay!’ I love the playful colours of the appliques. I’ll definitely be getting some more to add a splash of colour to our bathroom.
Smiley is also obsessed with the pink bathtime duckie which she likes to have by her side at all times, while our three-year-old has fun watching the kissee fishees give each other a smooch.
The tub toy bag is obviously my favourite. Held up with two cute suction backed sea creatures, the bag can be attached to the side of the bath to allow the toys to drain. It’s a great way of storing the bath toys and keeping them dry.
All Tommee Tippee bath toys are BPA free, designed with your child in mind, and come in happy colours.
