Mould-free bath toys make bathing fun and encourage parent-child bonding
Bath toys encourage parent-child bonding and also help to develop bub’s play skills. Parents can have endless hours of fun games with little ones with role-play games and safe water play activities while getting kiddies clean. Bath time can be fun time for everyone! Besides the fun, parents also need to ensure bath toys remain hygienically clean because bath toys can easily develop mould from hours in the water and not drying out adequately. Especially since teething bubs love to put bath toys in their mouth. That’s why many parents opt for sealed mould-free bath toys to make bath time fun while keeping little ones safe from harmful mould.

Bath toys are a great distraction for kids who don’t always love getting clean. Bath toys range in design and objectives. The most important feature is that a bath toy must be child safe. All Metro Baby’s products adhere to Australian and New Zealand safety standards. Other things to consider are sealed mould-free water toys for teething bubs, educational toys for curious toddlers and fun games for kids of all ages. Bath toys make bathing fun for kids of all ages.

Keeping your bath toys clean and hygienic
Even though bath toys spend a lot of time in the bath, this doesn’t mean they’re necessarily clean and hygienic.

For all bath toys, wipe with a damp cloth and mild soap to keep hygienically clean and air dry in between use. Do not leave in direct contact with sunlight.
