We give our daughter a bath every night before bed – partly because, despite popular belief, my daughter gets very, very messy throughout the day. She loves blowing bubbles and going on walks and exploring nature and playing with her food…and so, understandably, she is just a tad bit dirty by the end of the day.
She always gets excited when she hears the water running and loves to be lifted into the water. She plays with her alphabet set and her red plastic cup and tries to blow bubbles while we scrub her head-to-toe. And, in the end, she almost always says “play!” and “more!” with delight. On most nights, we have to pull the plug and drain all of the water out to convince her to get out and into the towel.
For a long time, we just left the toys scattered here and there all over the tub floor, but I prefer a little more organization – especially if guests happen to use that restroom. So I’m happy to have a Frog Pod now.
The Frog Pod by boon is a bath toy storage solution that “helps with children’s bath time clean-up, providing a drainable scoop for collecting and rinsing toys and a wall-mounted base for storing bath products.” The Frog Pod also “reduces mold & mildew,” which makes sense to me because water tends to accumulate in between crevices and “cups” in toys if left unattended in the bathtub.
My only “critiques” of the pod are (1) that the frog’s feet and hands (hmmm…are those the right technical terms?) are a bit large and sometimes get in the way, and (2) that the scooper is a bit too narrow to scoop up the toys one-handed…but, other than those two things, I think it is a fun and functional invention that serves its intended purpose.
The Frog Pod can be purchased online for $34.99 or at a variety of stores across the U.S. and around the world.
