Top 15 Best Baby Bath Toys

As soon as your baby is old enough to sit up in the tub, you want to make sure you have a few entertaining and educational bath toys to keep her busy while you’re scrubbing. Luckily, there are so many adorable and creative baby bath toys out there, and many of them are under $10 a pop! It’s best to have a variety of toys so your baby has plenty to choose from—I’d start with three or four different varieties to see which she prefers, then go from there. When bath time’s over, you want to make sure all your spiffy toys have a place to go. I recommend a product like the Munchkin Super Scoop Bath Toy Organizer to keep them all corralled. Bath toys should be cleaned in a vinegar and hot water soak a minimum of once every six months.

If you haven’t purchased a bather for your baby yet, check out our top 10 best infant bath tubs & bath seats. And if you’re in need of some fun and top-rated baby toys for outside of the bath, here are our top 20 best baby teething toys and top 20 best baby rattles.

Below, check out the top 15 baby bath toys that any baby will be sure to love. These all come highly rated and recommended by real parents like you.


1. Munchkin Fishin’ Bath Toy

(Munchkin)

Gone fishin’! This adorable magnetic fishing rod from Munchkin comes with a set of three bobbing toys that look like sea creatures.

Some consumers are disappointed that the fishing rod doesn’t actually reel, it just dangles. This toy is intended for children 24 months and up.

The Munchkin Float and Play Bubbles Bath Toy comes in a set of four and is perfect for babies starting at four months. Each bubble contains a different character, spinner or rattle—the bubbles are designed to stimulate your baby’s senses of hearing, sight and touch. Luckily, these toys come with no holes to let in pesky mold or mildew.
