You’d relish three minutes to yourself in a tepid shower, let alone the chance to kick back and soak in a warm, bubble-filled bathtub. But even though you’d totally welcome a bathtub break, your toddler can be less than thrilled with theirs. At least until you toss in a few fab bath toys! Check out these must-have bathtime buddies that your tot will entirely enjoy.

1. Alex Toys Draw in the Tub Crayons ($8): Art doesn’t have to just stay on paper. Creative kids will get a kick out of drawing in — and on — the tub. And don’t worry about any mess: These crayons easily wash right off when bathtime is done.

2. Boon Pipes Building Bath Toy Set ($15 for five): These BPA-free pipes suction to the wall, making it easy for little engineers to explore more science in the bath.

3. Crayola Color Bath Dropz ($16 for 60): Forget about boring old clear water. These bath fizzes turn your kiddo’s bath into all the colors of the rainbow. Let your tot pick two different shades to create a kid-friendly science experiment right in the tub.

4. Joyin Educational Bath Toys ($11): Help your little learner to master their letters as they clean up. These non-toxic, BPA-free foam letters, numbers, and figures attach to smooth tub and shower walls, giving your tot an educational way play their bathtime away. Plus the 50-piece set comes with its own net bag that neatly suction-cups onto the wall.

5. MooToys Under the Sea Animals Stacking Cups ($10): Tots can practice fine motor skills while exploring through their senses. These simple sea creature stacking cups are easy to use and provide plenty of splashy fun. (They make a great beach toy too, if you prefer your accessories to do double duty.)

6. Froogz “Con-Suction” Toy Set ($25 for 25): Even though this isn’t strictly a bath toy, the suction cups make it the perfect pick for the tub. Your young engineer can build, manipulate, and move the pieces to create a structure in your bathroom.

7. Moluk Plui Rain Cloud Tub Toy ($14): This isn’t just a cute plaything: It’s a completely creative learning tool too. Your science-loving kiddo can make discoveries as they simulate the water cycle and learn about physics. And parents will be thrilled to know this toy opens up for easy cleaning.

8. Skip Hop Zoo Stack and Pour Buckets ($10 for five): These cute little buckets are perfect for pint-sized playtimes. Thanks to three different sprinkle effects, your tot can exercise their fine motor skills, help rinse off, and even splash you too!

9. Boon Cogs Water Gears ($10 for five): This is engineering at its most enjoyable. Your child can spin the gears, figure out how they fit together, and discover how water makes them move.

10. Boon Water Bugs Floating Bath Toy ($8): Play a game of catch-and-release with these floating bugs. Your kiddo can create their own pretend play scenario as they chase down three swimming creatures with a tot-scale net.
