Review and 15% discount offer: Flexibath toys from White Step

There's an unwritten rule in toddlerland - water MUST be played with. DD has taken this rule to heart and can regularly be found splashing about in the sink, bath, muddy puddles, anywhere where there's some form of precipitation. Bath times for us are a long affair; making tea, playing car wash, racing toys up and down and generally having a smashing (or should that be splashing?) time. So when I was contacted by White Step to review a new set of flexible bath toys made by the uber cool and environmentally conscious Danish company A Real Cool World, I couldn't wait to see what DD thought of them.

Who needs water?
As soon as I unwrap the Flexibath™ toys parcel and open the box, the brightly coloured tea set - a flexible jug, two small pots and sieve with a lid - disappear from my hands and play commences. Who needs water? DD is clearly smitten and with an extra fifteen minutes to make and actually drink a mug of tea (while it's HOT people) frankly so am I.

At bath time I stick the clear plastic table to the side of the bath with the two large suckers and a I-don't-want-to tantrum became a ooo-new-toys grin. Soon the cafe opens and it's new proprietor offers to pour me a cup of pre-strained orange juice that looked remarkably like bath water. Bath water that has just been pee-ed in.  I'll pass thanks.

When I finally manage to prise DD out of the bath half an hour later the table pops off the side of the bath fairly easily (there are little tabs to help you break the suction) so that I can leave the whole set to drain. It's only at that point that I realise she hasn't played with any of the other toys strewn around the bath tonite. New toy joy? Perhaps, but I think these ones have longevity.

Check out the funky tune!

THE VERDICT
In summary, DD loves her new Flexibath™ Toys. One set consists of; 2 CUPs, 1 JUG, 1 FUNNEL, 1 LID and 1 TABLE and costs £13.95 from White Step. The Toys are made from soft PP and TPE plastic and comply with all relevant international standards. Both types of materials are free from PVC, Phthalates, BPA, heavy metals and other harmful and hazardous materials. The Flexibath™ Toys are safe, clean and environmentally responsible and for easy cleaning you can pop them in the dishwasher (max 60 centigrade). I'd thoroughly recommend them. And more importantly, so would DD. Just don't try to take them off her. They'd be trouble.
