Nuby Mommy Blogger- Octopus Floating Bath Toy

Posted by Heather at Friday, July 26, 2013

In between rain storms, flash flood warnings and other acts of nature, we've been trying to squeeze in some pool time, this summer. The last time we went for a dip, we brought along the Nuby Octopus Floating Bath Toy to play with.

Lil' Miss was only so-so about this one. Let's start with the positive; I like that both the octopus and the rings all float in the water (makes it easier to find the rings and Lil' Miss doesn't swim underwater). The octopus itself is cute and friendly for children.

I believe my daughter's biggest problem with this toy, though, is the fact that the rings are so small (and the legs are quite chunky) that it's hard to actually get them onto the octopus legs. Therefore, she quickly lost interest in the toy as she grew more frustrated trying (and failing) to get the rings onto the legs. I understand that the toy is supposed to help develop hand/eye coordination, but even as an adult, I found it difficult to accomplish at any distance.

Here is what Nuby has to say about the Nuby Octopus Floating Bath Toy;

  • 18 months +
  • Floats in water
  • Helps develop hand-eye coordination
  • Fun colors and shapes stimulate the senses
  • Includes 3 rings to toss and fit onto the Octopus arms
