Titanic Tub The Golden Boats Fantastic footage and a great soundtrack as well...

Titanic in a Tub: The Golden Age of Toy Boats Fantastic footage and a great soundtrack as well I have been fascinated by ocean liners since I was a little kid and this video had a great deal to do with that! I used to watch Titanic In A Tub when I was home sick from school probably as early as Kindergarten and stole the tape from my folks when I moved away from home years ago. I just ordered the DVD and can't wait to see it in a high resolution format. The shots of all the toy boats and the wonderful sweeping nostalgic shots of the real ships that inspired their design makes this a video I highly recommend.

"There is nothing more magical than the recreation of those ships in the painted toys of yesteryear, and this has been captured in a little gem of a film...

KidCo S372 Bath Storage Basket A perfect storage container....

KidCo Bath Storage Basket
  • Holds bath toys, soap, shampoo and more
  • Fits most bath tubs
  • Adjustable length
  • Divider panels separate toys from bath care items
  • Easy to attach and remove
  • Just What We Needed We've had this item for a few weeks now and love it. It fits all of my daughters toys so they aren't laying dripping on the floor and holds the shampoo and bubbles easily sectioned off from the toys. I saw some comments about sticking it to the tub and I don't know if it's because I haven't looked or mine doesn't have it but I don't see anything that sticks it to the tub. Ours just rests nicely and when I want an adult bath I lift it out and then put it back when I'm done.
    Added bathtime entertainment! I bought the Kidco Bath Storage Basket to rangle my 11 month old son's growing herd of tub toys. This storage basket does the job nicely. He likes to take all the toys out and put them back in. The basket has adjustable dividers which is nice that you can customize the sections according to your personal needs. My son enjoys moving his toys from one section to the next.My only complaint would be that I wish the length of the basket could lock into place once you adjust it to the width of your tub. My son's constant tugging on the basket makes it shrink down and I have to fix it repeatedly during the course of one bath. Once he is older and can follow instructions I'm sure this will not be a problem.
    GREAT! This is a great product with plenty of room with organizing dividers and very sturdy. Definitely a good choice for adults and children.
    not big enough this falls through into the tub if bumped just slightly. i have it expanded all the way and pushed to the smallest part of the tub and it falls through.
    so far so good so far it has worked great. It is alot bigger than what i expected but evewn better! it holds tons of toys and shampoo and bubble bottles. It was soooooo easy to put together and fits perfect in the tub. My son thinks its great.
    perfect Have not had any problems with it since i started using it 4 months ago. Holds a lot of toys all the ones we have in fact!I have a smooth surface shower/tub and have had no problems with it holding up.
    A perfect storage container. I bought the two2 pack of this Bath storage basket for my two Grandsons. Their Moms say they love it as the basket holds all their bath toys etc. A nice convenient compact storage container.
    Works great! We really love this basket. We've been using it for about 6 months. It holds all of our granddaughter's toys when she's not in the tub and then doubles as her kitchen when she is in the tub.
    Ok. It's not pretty but I have not found anywhere anything better.It does its job and at least it fits sideways a few mermaids.
    Great for Bath necessities we use this to put our shampoo and all bath needs in including back scrubber. We place it in the back of the tub so while showering we have all our necessities accessible. Very helpful and better than suction cup holders that always slip off the shower walls. The Bath Storage Basket solved our problem.

    Munchkin Dora Explorer Bath Squirters Not the quality I would expect!

    Munchkin Dora the Explorer Bath Squirters
  • Each toy measures about 3" X 3"
  • Easy for little hands to hold and squeeze
  • Ideal for 9+ months
  • If you have an imaginative child these are perfect! My 2 year old loves Dora and also pretend play. These little floaters go on many adventures.
    should say wonderful
    Fun for pretend play in tub My daughter who is almost 3 loves Dora and Boots. She is big on pretend playing Dora the explorer so these are great for that purpose in the water. She doesn't really care that they squirt but I don't think they are too hard to squirt as I have tried other bath squirters and some are tougher than these are. The only thing I rather have seen is that they are more characters than just 3 dora squirters and 1 Boots. Also they are smaller than I expected them to be but good for my daughter's hands as she is petite. Al in all my daughter likes them and wants to take a bath because they are there in the tub so what more can I ask for.
    Very small I bought these as a gift and they are pretty little. We do not watch Dora yet in our house but I guess there is a main character missing swiper. I bought it for a 3 year old and when he opened it the first thing he said is where is swiper? I don't think I would recommend this.
    Nice! They are a little too small but my daughter loves them and enjoys very much playing with them in the bath and the pool.
    Very cute! I bought these for our 3 yr old daughter because she loves Dora. We received them in just a few days which was a plus and she just loves playing with them. They are very cute and I would recommend them.
    Not the quality I would expect! These squirters are really pretty junky for a number of reasons. First they are VERY hard to squirt. I have a hard time filling them with water and squirting them needless to say my preschooler can't do it. Second they don't float well. The one of Dora on a seahorse just falls over to the side and sometimes is upside down. Because of these my son who is a rabid Dora fan doesn't seem to enjoy them or even play with them. I think they're destined for the trash can. If you're looking for a much better quality squirter try the Sassy Bathtime Pals.
    Cute but useless. 3 stars vs. 2 because our girls love them and that's all that matters to them. As squirt toys however they're useless. They don't hold much water. The plastic is relatively weak so they don't fill well. This isn't helped by the fact that 3 of the 4 toys don't have much squeezable space the seahorse is the rockstar squirt toy of the group. The squirt holes aren't all in predictable places so you might go to squirt your child on the tummy and end up squirting them in the eye yes it happened no it wasn't traumatic. Due to the odd position of some of the squirt hoes It's virtually impossible to get all of the water OUT of the toys when bathtime is over. The inevitable result is that you *will* be creating a science experiment inside the toys unless you go to the trouble of regular sanitization.
    Dora bath toys These are great for Dora lovers. However it is hard to get the water out of them. I am worried they will get moldy quickly like other squirt bath toys.
    Disappointed I guess I was hoping these bath squirters were going to be a little larger. My one year old loved them however my 4 year old was not as satisfied. They are somewhat difficult to squirt and do not really float upright.

    Each toy measures about 3" X 3".Easy for little hands to hold and squeeze.Ideal for 9+ months. Moms like to keep their little ones busy in the tub. So let these fun characters entertain them. They suck up the water and give a gentle squirt that brings lots of giggles. They're also a gas for making bubbles under the water.

    Boon Bath Scoop Green Frog GREAT toy holder

    Boon Pod Bath Toy Scoop, Green Frog
  • Makes bath time clean-up fun and easy
  • BPA-free, Phthalate-free and PVC-free
  • Stores and organizes bath accessories
  • Reduces mold and mildew
  • Mounting options included: adhesive strips and hardware
  • Just what I ordered I ordered this Frog pod bath for an upcoming baby shower.I wanted something different. I got it!This frog can pick up toys and can be easily cleaned.A scoop too for picking up the toys.
    fabulous!!! I thought the price was really high but this frog has been wonderful for us SO worth it. Has been sticking strong for 6 months! The little guy LOVES scooping up his toys and then dumping them back out so its a toy as well as a storage solution.
    Still in Love I fell in love with this little froggy after seeing it in a friend's bathroom for their kids. We've had ours up on a white tile tub/shower combo for over 2 years and we love it! Fully loaded with lots of use from my 7 4 and 19 month old and it's still held up! Eventually I'm sure that the adhesives will one day degrade but I'll just invest in 3M Command strips and pop this baby back up!Things I LOVE1 Super cute design without being too babyish or gender specific. I get really sick of seeing baby decor everywhere but this piece has an adorable sense of whimsy.2 IT DRAINS!!!! I can't tell you how nasty/frustrating it is to have nasty old sludge at the bottom of some other poorly designed bath toy holders! Then you have to sterilize all the toys too!3 No nets.
    GREAT toy holder This is an awesome product for holding onto toys in the bathtub. the holes at the bottom release all the water so that the toys dont get moldy. Plus the top holds the childrens soaps and shampoo so that they cannot get to that. I had my husband screw it in to the wall and so far it has held up pretty perfectly. GREAT product.
    good but needs reinforced 2sided tape Thankfully another reviewer mentioned that they bought extra strong hardwaregrade two sidedtape that kept it stuck to the wall.
    Adorable and essentially useless I am incredibly frustrated with this product. When I received the Boon Frog Pod I followed the instructions to use the adhesive strips included with the product. They held the pod on my ceramic tiles for about a month and a half before it went clattering down off the wall. I ordered the replacement wall bracket with silicon adhesive from Boon. I followed the instructions for mounting it to my wall carefully even leaving the silicon to dry for an extra 12 hours in addition to the recommended 48 hours. Within TEN MINUTES of rehanging the frog pod holding nothing more than a few plastic measuring cups the silicon adhesive failed and the entire pod fell off the wall again. Maddening! What good does this adorable pod do if it won't stay attached to the wall?! I see nothing in the instructions that indicate that it will not work on ceramic tile. While the screws seem to be a surefire way to get the thing to stay on the wall I am not willing to ruin my tiles to use them. So the frog is now taking up room in a closet unused.
    Keep the adhesive tabs dryish Like many of you I read all the reviews before purchasing this awesome adorable frog a few years ago. I can't remember when we bought it but anyway it stuck great for over a year before falling down and like someone else said it totally scared me when it did haha.Maybe a year is just how long the sticky lasts but's I don't think so.We got a new washer head before it fell and I firmly believe it fell because I poured/sprayed water above it to clean the shower and it ran down and got the sticky wet and wahlah kaboom. I'm not sure if I should be embarrassed or not that we didn't clean the shower above the frog for a year or so but in any case I think getting it wet makes it fall hence the varied stick times the reviewers mention. I followed the reviewers advice and stuck it on tile only and not over grout etc.I can't wait to put this up tomorrow in our new apartment!Oh and PS it is so big in real life! Good big though. And yes I did read the size description online before it just looks so so big when you open this massive box and a frog as big as your 2 year old hops out. Just sayin'. Love the green color by the way.
    GREAT! Well I think its perfectmight be a little small but still fits quite a few toys in it. Mine sticks to my tile perfectly. I guess if you have a molded tub without a wall to mount it with the screws then don't get it. If you have tile or can mount it IT's GREAT.
    I love the frog! It is big and cute and looks great! This is an excellent product. We were looking for something sturdy and drilled it into the tile on the side of the bath. It is nice and big cute and makes all the toys look tidy because they are not strewn all over the bathtub anymore. I love the way it lets the toys drain out also.
    Cute toy holder but doesn't stick We love the look and quality of the frog but it definitely doesn't stick. We don't have heavy toys in it just some foam stacking blocks and letters but the frog fell off the wall within a day of putting it up in the middle of the night and it scared the day lights out of us! We tried other double sided tape from Home Depot as other's have mentioned but it did not help. We have large 6x6 tiles with a flat surface so I don't know why it doesn't want to stay but it doesn't. The only solution I can see is to either leave it in the bottom of the tub or drill holes in the tile to hang it up.

    Makes bath time clean-up fun and easy.BPA-free, Phthalate-free and PVC-free.Stores and organizes bath accessories.Reduces mold and mildew.Mounting options included: adhesive strips and hardware. As every parent knows, rubber duckies and little toy boats tend to multiply in the bath. Rather than allowing them to lurk underfoot on the bathroom floor or sit forlornly in the empty tub once the splish-splashing is over, why not scoop 'em up with the ever-so-cute Frog Pod? This bright green plastic frog can be mounted on any bathroom wall with the included bracket and adhesive. A built-in shelf at the top stores shampoo or other bath products, while (this is the best part) the removable scoop can be used to pick up, rinse, and drain toys. Additional toys or scrubby sponges can be hung from the frog's splayed fingers and toes. There's plenty of room for toys (no more than 10 pounds worth is the packaging caution - 10 pounds!), and the design is charming and appealing to grownups and kids alike. To avoid trouble with the Frog Pod falling off the wall, make sure to follow mounting directions carefully. It's especially important to use a dry wall, allow for a long adhesive curing time, and don't cross the grout with the adhesive strips. Once it's really on, the frog pod should provide handy, stylish, and mildew-free bath toy storage for a good long time.

    Boon 4 Pack Odd Ducks Fun but could be better constructed

    Boon 4 Pack Odd Ducks
  • BPA-free, Phthalate-free, and PVC-free
  • Set of four ducks
  • Bath toys encourage water play
  • Adorable and safe! I love these ducks! I got them for my 8 month oldhe loves chewing on soft plastic toys and I worry about toxins. These are made from the safest kind of plastic and they are water tight so mold can't grow inside. They are also brightly colored with super cute designs. They seem very well made and I think they are going to last for yearsthey seemed a little pricy but they are the last soft plastic toys I will be buying. I threw away all the cheap vinyl toys we had and have these ducks scattered around the house. They have inspired me to get rid of as many toxins as I can in the bathroomI replaced our vinyl shower curtain with a fabric one and got a natural rubber bath mat.
    Kids Love 'Em So Do I I bought this set when my cousin brought his twoyearold daughter to visit for vacation. We don't have any kids so we don't have any toys. I bought these because I thought they looked pretty sturdy and stylish. She loved them and played with them the entire time even out of the bathtub. She loved that they each had a different look feel and name and loved carrying them around and lining them up on the table. When they were packing up to leave I thought about giving them to her when I realized how much I love them too. SoooooooI still have my awesome rubber ducks and I now have a great Christmas present idea for her.
    Toxic Fumes! This is my first review on Amazon ever! When I opened the box these baby toys smelled strongly of toxic fumes like paint or permanent markers. There is no way I can give these to my child. Despite being PVCfree it is clear from the smell that something they are made from is no good. I am guessing it is the paint. I immediately boxed them back up for return to Amazon. Luckily Amazon is a wonderful company for accommodating returns. Also unlike the advertisement water can easily get in the bottom since the ducks are not solid. And of course if you need another reason they are made in China. If you are thinking about getting these ducks please read all the negative reviews under the individual duck products such as Bob Odd Duck
    Good ducks Good ducks. A little pricy. They are big enough for kids to play with and very colorful. Kind of lean forward in the water but does not bother us. The main thing about them is that they won't get moldy due to not having 'squirt holes'.
    LOVE these! We love this set of ducks. I'll never buy those bath squirties again mold eventually grows inside. These are the only ducks I could find that don't trap water inside. I can tell these will be quite durable since we won't have to throw them away due to mold. My two daughters love theseI love that they are completely safe durable and colorful.
    Baby loves them I got these for my 9 month old for Christmas and he adores them! We have a lot of fun playing with them both inside and outside of the bathtub. In terms of toxicity they seem safer than most bath toys. They also look really cute in the bathroom. We have the Original Rubber Ducks as well and those are fun because you can fill them with water and squirt them which the Boon ducks cannot do.
    Great fun and adorable bath toys. Had these toy for 2 years and just replaced them with a new set. We love them that much! These ducks and boon scrubbles have been my daughter's favorite bath toys since she was a baby. She loves them just as much the 2nd time around! I am sure our new baby will love them too. Our child stays entertained with these toys.
    Unique and lovely little duckies These duckies are so great I love that I got them on a sale price and I love all four of them. My son now 1 month shy of turning 2 years old loves them. I don't believe he has a favorite though as he seems to line them up and play with them equally during bath time. I have the orange one out for the pool during the summer and he quacks along for it the whole time. They are high quality and I recommend soaking them in a clorox bath to clean them every week or so to disinfect them. Other then that they seem well made and I think will last him as well as any siblings to come wonderfully.
    Fun but could be better constructed Great concept love the fun colors and different shapes. My 2 year old loves them and always wants to take them out of the tub when she plays with them she also likes telling me what colors they have on them.Problem the boon ducks have these weighted bottoms attached to help them stay up right when floating in the water. When we first opened the package the bottom of the blue one was already separating. It seems that they are glued on and while they are still stay upright the only one that the bottom hasn't begun separating from is the orange and white one. Surprisingly my little one hasn't pulled them off but its something they could improve on so this doesn't happen. I would definitely get them again though and ours didn't have any weird smells. I will add a picture of what happened with them.
    Great Concept Stinky Packaging I was very excited about this product. However I hate it when I order a product that is free etc. and then when I get it it says Made in China. I don't know how much I trust that. I guess I should have found that information before purchasing it.My biggest complaint with this product is that when I got it and eagerly tore into the packaging I about fell over from the chemical stink that radiated from the ducks. While they may be PVC BPA and the like free that apparently didn't stop them from painting the design on them with spray paint or so it smelled definitely something along those lines!. YUCK. Kind of defeated the whole purpose of purchasing them in my opinion. My kid will definitely be chewing on them in the bathtub a plant based paint would be WAY more on target with the product.

    BPA-free, Phthalate-free, and PVC-free.Set of four ducks.Bath toys encourage water play. Not your average rubber ducky. Kids are all different shapes and sizes, shouldn't rubber ducks come that way too? Meet Slim, Bob, Jane, and Squish. We're not trying to encourage a rubber ducky smackdown, but Odd Ducks are PVC-free unlike those other mucky ducks. And ours do not hold water, so they won't grown that black mold that kids always try to suck out.
