DS's tub toy collection is growing rapidly!! I am trying to come up with some sort of toy storage solution for all these toys - we use the same tub and it is getting downright hazardous to take a shower. I have never had much luck with suction cup things so I feel like those mesh bags won't really work. Does anyone have any great ideas??

I keep all of ds bath toys in a beach bucket next to the tub. That's worked for us so far.

I got a mesh laundry bag (just for normal laundry - not the kind in the toy section) and put all the toys in it and hang it from the shower head. I just hang it after baths to dry out the toys, and then I put it outside the shower while adults use it, and hang it back afterwards to keep the toys out of the way and out of site (we only have one bathroom and its small).

I use a plastic beach basket for right now. Only problem is it doesn't have holes in the bottom like it does on the sides, so the bottom is getting a bit dingy.
I also have used plastic baskets from the dollar tree that have holes all around, to let the toys air out and drain.

We use an old white milk crate...after the bath, we put the crate in the tub (we put rubber sticky things on the bottom so it wouldn't scratch up our tub on each corner) after the water is drained and put the toys in it to drain and dry overnight/air out.....then we either just leave it in there out of the way or set it under one of the sinks (dh has nothing under his) until bath time...

I know there are all kinds of great suggestions for reusing items (which I wholeheartedly support!) but if you are looking to get something as cute as it is functional, check this out:

frog bath toy holder

Click on the "view larger image" thing to see it from a different angle. I know it's silly to buy something to use, when there are lots of other things you can re-use. But, its really freakin' cute and maybe, just maybe, your toddler will want to scoop up his own toys after his bath! This thing drains and airs out toys and I believe hangs on shower wall...

We have one of the corner racks with the metal pole and baskets. DH put the lowest basket down for DD to reach. She not only takes out her toys while in the tub, she puts them away when she is ready to get out.
