Bath Toys: Tea Set

Awesome bath toys have been hard to find, but I totally killed it the other day by grabbing a floating tea set as I zoomed through the bath aisle at Babies R Us. I had no idea how popular it would be: I was just trying to find something to calm Astrid’s passing desire not to get anywhere near the bathtub.

She loves it. I would have said this was because it was her first tea set too, but that’s not it: she has another set now (the Green Toys one) and has no interest in it, so there’s something about this one that is like catnip. There are cute bugs on the sides of all the pieces + there are lids + there’s pouring involved + even though I’m a Splenda girl, I get that the hollow plastic sugarcubes in the sugar bowl are brilliant.

She plays with it outside the bath and in the tub and makes us all have tea all the time. I haven’t seen her this excited for a toy in the bath…well, ever.

Summer Infant Tub Time Floating Tea Set, $10 at Babies R Us or Amazon

    We recently introduced BathBlocks which allow children to build marble runs, water slides, waterfalls, floating towns, and more in the bath. BathBlocks are simple with lots of open-ended possibilities that encourage young minds to think, to create and to explore. BathBlocks are made from bacteria and mildew resistant EVA and contain no PVC or phthalates. BathBlocks have won Oppenheim Gold Awards. You can check them out at
