New from Sassy Baby – Developmental Bath Toys
New Sassy Bath toys make a splash! They have been designed with the help of child development experts to fit baby’s developing sensory perception, motor skills and creativity. Just like the developmental toy line, Sassy bath toys are designed to fit every age and stage as baby grows and develops.
Child development experts agree that certain elements are critical for an effective developmental toy. You’ll find them throughout the new Sassy bath toy line.
- Character faces: They are symmetrical, bold and organized. Babies and young children respond best to organized images.
- Variety: Babies have a tremendous capacity to learn; therefore, it is important to offer variety in the toys and the experiences they provide.
- Realism: Toys that reflect the real world help baby make sense of the world around her. They open the way for conversations between baby and caregiver, which expose baby to new vocabulary.
The way I see it, bath time can be used for more than just cleaning little body parts. It’s the perfect place for kids play, learn and have some good clean fun, while supervised.
For our littlest one, bath time is the one place where she really comes to life and has a grand old time exploring new textures and shapes. With the newest products from Sassy Toys she was able to explore letters and shapes that float, stick to the walls and experience a whole new world of textures. Some had bumps, some had ridges and others were smooth. The also double as a great learning tool for toddlers that are new to identifying letters of the alphabet and colors.
One of my favorite products from Sassy is the soft touch rinse cup. It’s completely flexible allowing me to rinse my infant’s hair and shape the cup to her head all while avoiding getting the soapy water in her eyes.
I just can’t help but love not only Sassy bath toys but all of their products because they are simple, colorful, educational and best of all, affordable!
Many of the Sassy Bath Toys featured above and below can be purchased in a variety of store locations including Toys R Us, Babies R Us and at the Sassy Online Shop.
Pour & Explore Cups (6 months & Up) Inspire Exploration: This set of three cups offers a different moving part in each. The movements — a twirling pinwheel, spinning top and floating beads — are triggered when water is poured in. Each cup has a brightly colored rim and holes in the bottom to strain water. Stack the cups in any order to form a tower of spinning, twirling, floating fun. Pour & Explore Cups fit into Sassy Pour and Explore Water Whirl. Suggested retail price for the 3-cup set is $6.99.
Catch & Release Net (6 Months & Up) Inspire Exploration: This toy helps baby build hand-eye coordination as he works to scoop brightly colored sea creatures into the little net. The fishing net is made of textured, blue plastic with nubby bumps on the handle to improve baby’s grip and a round ball at the end for gripping and mouthing. Three friendly creatures with smiling, symmetrical faces and textured bodies float on the surface, making them easier for baby to catch. Suggested retail price is $4.99 for the 4-piece set.
Scrub-a-Dub Car Wash (9 Months & Up) Inspire Imagination: Working at the car wash has never been such fun! Baby can keep busy with 8 creative activities offered on this floating platform. There are lessons in cause-and-effect, opportunities to learn new words, invitations to use the imagination and skills to hone hand-eye coordination. Baby’s car wash customers include 3 brightly colored vehicles that scoop or strain water. Moving vehicles through the soft rinse curtain provides baby with a lesson in object permanence. Squeeze the yellow, terrycloth “road sign” to squirt the cars moving under the car wash and scoop water into the car rinser in the center to watch it wash over the vehicles. Speed bumps and a hill make driving through the car wash an adventure. Scrub-A-Dub Car Wash has a suggested retail price of $10.99.
Count ‘n Spell Appliqués (3 years & Up) Inspire Imagination: The writing is on the wall! These number and letter appliqués spell good times. Made of soft, durable foam, the appliqués adhere to the tub, tile and other smooth surfaces. Textured surfaces are fun to touch and easy to grip. Playing with letters and numbers encourages early reading and language skills. Available in rainbow and pink assortments, the 36-piece set has a suggested retail price of $5.99.
Soft Touch Rinse Cup (All Ages) This soft plastic cup is made of a unique material that forms a watertight edge along baby’s forehead, keeping soap and water out of sensitive eyes. A wide, soft handle is easy for adult hands to grip, even with soapy, slippery bath water. The cup comes in a variety of bright, bold colors. Suggested retail price is $4.99.
