For you, bath time may be about getting your kids clean and making sure they don’t create a mess in the process, but for kids, it’s all about having fun. These toys will keep them entertained long enough for you to get your job of scrubbing and rinsing done, and they each pass the test of being easy to clean and good for a wide range of ages.
Munchkin Bath Toys
If your little one isn’t quite old enough for a full-size rod and reel, they can go fishing in the tub with this Munchkin Fishin’ Bath Toy. It comes with a magnetic fishing rod and three brightly-colored magnetic bobbers that float just under the surface so they’re easy to catch.

Boon Bath Toys
Meet MARCO. Boon’s MARCO Light-Up Bath Toy loves bath time, scuba diving, and entertaining your child with color-changing, water-activated lights.

This set of three colorful tubes from Boon combines bath time with playtime for some good, clean fun. Each tube has a suction cup so your child can make different combinations and one of the tubes doubles as a cup for rinsing the soap out of their hair.
The Boon CHOMP Whale is hungry and your child can help him find his lunch. When you squeeze the tail, the whale’s mouth opens so it can chomp up the three included sea creatures. As an added bonus, you can store the sea creatures inside the whale’s mouth when not in use.
Nobody likes bugs in the bath, and your kid can help clean them up with the net that comes in Boon’s WATER BUGS Bath Toy set. This toy is also great for pool and water table play.

When you pull the cord on the front of the Skip Hop Pull & Go Submarine, the propeller whirs to life and the submarine takes off across the tub. The toy is designed with holes in the bottom for proper drainage that stops mold growth before it starts.
The Green Toys Submarine takes bathtime fun below the surface. When the submarine fills with water, it sinks to the bottom of the tub and when you pull it back up, the water comes pouring out. The top also pops off so you can clean the submarine in the sink or dishwasher.
Colorful Bath Toys
What do you get when you combine crayola paint with sudsy soap? Lots of good, clean fun for kids! This set of five paints wipes off the tub by scrubbing with soap and water, though most reviewers said it can stain if not cleaned off quickly when bath time ends.
