Birthday Gift Guide and Giveaway - Nuby Bath Time Toy Bundle

For our 3rd Toy review for Lily's 2nd Birthday Gift Guide and Giveaway, We have some wonderful bath toys from Nuby



Lily has always enjoyed her bath times and we have always had lots of toys for her to play with. But its great that we were send some brand new bath toys for Lily's Birthday to review. Bath toys are one that that after a while do need updating and getting fresh ones.

Bath time toys are a great thing to think about when buying for a 2nd birthday. All children have baths and so its always such a great toy to buy. I think if you are shopping for a child that isn't your own, bath toys are a great way forward as you can't really go wrong. 


Nuby has such a great range of Children's bath toys. We were very lucky to be sent some to try out. 

We were sent - 
  • The Heat Safe Duck in Pink
  • The Submarine
  • Kissy Fishy
  • Stacking Cups
  • Alphabet Letters and Numbers
  • Bathtime Fishing Net


The first item we tried was the Heat Safe Duck. This toy is always a winner. Firstly its fun and colourful and all children love a rubber duck in their bath, but secondly its also for safety by making sure the water isn't to hot for your child. Which is something we still need to be thinking about for 2 year olds. Lily loved the duck and before she got into the bath she couldn't wait to chuck the duck in. SPLASH!
The way the duck indicates the heat is on the bottom. It displays the word HOT. This word is in a light blue colour on a dark blue background. If the water gets to hot then this word turns to a clear white. As my water was the right temperature (shown in the photograph) it didn't do this so I tested it by running it under a tap of hot water. The good things about this indicator is that it doesn't need any batteries and so you will be able to always rely on it working. You can buy this for RRP £2.80 and can also get it in blue. 





The second toy we reviewed is the Kissy Fishy. This toy is super cute and is 2 very brightly coloured fishes kissing each other. Lily was attracted to playing with these straight away. To play with them you pull them apart and there is a piece of string attached to both mouths and they swim to each other when you let go. Lily found the fishes quite easy to pull apart and enjoyed watching them swim together but I did find she struggled to get a good grip on them due to there round shape and being slippery and wet. The good thing about Lily being 2 is that she kept trying until she could do it. But she did also love watching when we did it for her to.
These are on the website at RRP £7.99.




Next we tried the stacking cups. Lily has had a set of non Nuby ones since she was a baby and always loved them, so it was really nice to be able to give her some new fresh ones. I must admit the ones I got before were a cheap make and you can really see the different in quality in these new Nuby ones. For starters they are much more colourful and have funky patterns on and secondly the water seems to drain from them a lot slower and a neater way. Which is much better for young children as by the time they have filled the cup and picked it up they want to see the water coming out at the bottom.
There are 5 cups in the pack and each one drains the water in a different shape with different amounts of holes in the bottom. Lily really loved these and was filling the cups up and letting the water drain from them onto her hands. The stacking cups are RRP £5.99 which is great value for how good they are.
 


After that was the Fishing Net. I think this excited my fishing partner just as much as Lily and he couldn't wait to show her how to use it. The net comes with 4 water creature shapes that you need to scoop up and catch in the water. These don't sink right to the bottom of the bath tub but they float just at the surface of the water, making it easier to catch them. Lily really enjoyed doing this as it was a real challenge for her. As Lily still sits in a bath seat we needed to keep the fishes quite close to her so she could catch them but when we did she did a great job and managed to catch them quite a few times. I think this is the most fun toy out of the bundle. I also love the design of the net. Its super colourful and really easy for Lily to hold. This is also £5.99 to buy which again for the amount of fun you have with it, its a great price. 


Next up was the Alphabet Letter and numbers. Lily is currently really into her counting so these are going to be great to use to help that. The set comes with letters A-Z which are all different colours with different patterns and the numbers are the same with 1-9. The letters and numbers when wet stick to the side of the bath. You can make fun words or learn the alphabet or learn to count all in the bath. I know we will definetly be sticking up 1 to 9 at the next bath time. I firstly had to show Lily what to do and I stuck the word fun onto the bath. Eventually Lily started to stick them on herself, though of corse she is a little young to be forming words yet. She actually decided to use the fishing net from the fishing set to collect the letters out of the bath and place them on. These are sold at RRP £5.99 which I think is a great price for the amount you get. 



Last but not least was the submarine. I love the design of this toy, its really cute and nice to have a pink one for Lily. To make this toy work you pull the cord at the back and it moved through the water. The string was actually really easy for Lily to pull herself which is great and it doesn't make to much of a loud noise which is also great as Lily doesn't like anything with to much motor noise. I must say though that the submarine seems to work in areas without bubbles and is needed to be placed in a bubble free area and Lily actually preferred moving it with her hands through the water as that way it moved a little faster. But as long as she enjoyed it I feel she can play with it which ever way she likes. This is also a very great price of £5.99 to buy and you can also get it in yellow. 


You can but all of these toys from the Nuby Website
