Bathtime is an important part of any 2 year old child’s life. After all, they spend quite a lot of time in the bath!
The best bath toys for 2 year old children can make bathtime fun instead of a chore.
- Bath books are fun and can boost a 2 year old’s love of reading. My toddler loves the bath books by Axel Scheffler, the author of Gruffalo – Katie the Kitten, Freddie the Frog etc. They’re nice simple stories with a squeaky front cover and are just the right level for a 2 year old.
- There are loads of activity centres that attach to the site of the bath, but vTech Baby Bathtime Bubbles Whale is my clear recommendation – both from personal experience and hundreds of reviews on other websites. My toddler LOVES hers and asks for it to be turned on every bathtime (and often when it’s not even bathtime!). It has replaced the popular Octobubble Orchestra toy.
- ]Bath crayons can help a 2 year old get used to holding a pencil and you don’t need to worry about the mess! Most of them are advertised as being for children over 5, but I know lots of 2 year old children who love bath crayons. You may have to stop them from eating the bath crayon, but of course you have to supervise them closely in the bath anyway!
