WFMW Plastic Colander Bath Toy Drainer/Holder
Posted by infinitygoods on September 19, 2007
Our baby liked to have plenty of toys in the tub, but how to easily drip dry and store those toys? Nothing on the market seemed right. Those suction cups with fish net bags would fall off and I was concerned that mildew would collect. At first I tried a plastic bowl. It was easy enough to collect all the toys after bathtime, but water at the bottom was still a problem. I searched the baby aisles, the bath aisles, the toy aisles but could not find anything just right. Then I went to the kitchen aisle and found a brightly colored plastic colander. Perfect! Not only was it easy to collect all the toys and drain, but to our child the colander itself became a toy and a water experiment. Lots of time was spent sinking, floating, pushing, pulling that colander through the water and bubbles. It was easy to rinse off and its home in between bathtimes was at the bottom of the empty tub. It was equally easy to transport to the sink or the other bathroom too if needed.
