With Christmas coming in a couple months, I wanted to mention a couple of fun toys that I received to review this month. The first one is called the Kid Kleen Bath Blizzard. You hook this little gizmo over your tub spout, pour in bubble bath, and turn it on for a cascade of bubbles during bath time. When the provided bubble bath runs out, you can use your own bubble bath, which is nice. Less nice is the fact that it takes 4 C batteries. I’m not sure how many baths that will get us. But all in all this is a fun toy that is a lot of fun for kiddos in the bath.
The other toy I got to look at is the Spinmaster AquaDoodle Draw and Doodle Mat. This drawing mat is good sized. You can spread it out on the floor and let kids draw on it using a special water-filled pen. The water makes marks on the mat that disappear once the mat is dry, so kids can use this again and again. It even has how-to-doodle hints around the sides of the mat. I’m not sure this is better than crayons and paper, but it is a fun item, especially for days when you don’t have the energy to deal with crayons and markers and the mess that they create.
