My daughter's cloth ducks molded and I'm looking for cloth alternatives that are still safer than the average plastic. Any ideas of where to find such things?

Why not just use wash cloth animals? There are some super cute hand made ones on Etsy. You can let her play with them as hand puppets and then throw them in the washing machine with the rest of your towels.

Our bathroom doesn't get good ventilation and our cloth ducks have molded on us several times. DD cries every time we have to throw them out.

How about the puppets? They dont take long to dry compared to the animal ones.

What about fun shaped soap - or soap crayons - or bath paint?

I'm not sure about ducks and animals but the absolute best bath toys we've ever had aren't toys at all. Strainers, cups, bowls and scoops are sooo fun, inexpensive and easier to find in a form that you feel comfortable with.
