what does your dc play with in the bath?<br>
we just got these squirties, different animals that squirt water, as a gift and they smell rubbery/plasticy gross.<br>
so i am looking for good bath toys, any suggestions?

DD's favorite bath toys are <a href="http://www.atoygarden.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=product.display&Product_ID=980" target="_blank">this boat</a> and <a href="http://www.sassybaby.com/category?cattype=category&catid=23&productid=19&product=Squirting%20Sea%20Creatures" target="_blank">these squirting toys</a>. The squirting toys are plastic, but Sassy doesn't use phthalates in their manufacturing process and they have never given off that plastic-y odor.

pop up sponges ( I think my mom got them at Trader Joe`s)<br>
measuring cups<br>
stuffed animals<br>
an empty plastic bottle with the cap on, floats and pops up if you hold it under water...<br>
a watering can<br>
foam animals that stick on the wall of the bath<br>
bubbles (we like California baby brand)<br>
a washcloth<br>
the wooden boat with people<br>
the adjustable hand held shower head...<br>
colored ice blocks (freeze colored water in containers, ice cubes melt in 5 sec, waaay to short)<br><br>
there is more but babe is fussy

I haven't bought my 10mo ds many bath toys, but he does have a few things. Two rubber ducks (a big one and a small one) and also just some regular teething toys. I do keep a big plastic cup in the tub for rinsing and he LOVES playing with it. He also likes playing with washcloths. I don't really care for the squirt toys cause it seems like they keep water or at least moisture in them at all times and get gross.

Plastic cups are my child's very favorite toy, but we also have some foam letters/numbers she enjoys. We used plastic measuring cups and spoons for a while, then found some cups made by Sassy I think? That are stackables -- they're great!<br><br>
But I hate those squirty toys -- the water <i>never</i> gets all the way out and they get mildewy fast. Nasty eww.<br><br>
We did get some that were pthlalate-free as a gift and I might let her play with them, but never in the tub, or submerged in water. I hate mold though. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/redface.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Embarrassment">
