ELC Bath Rattle and Roll Friends
Advantages: Bright, easy to clean, fun for younger babies
Disadvantages: Start to get boring once baby is able to use more interactive squirty bath toys
The Early Learning Centre Bath, Rattle and Roll Friends bath toys are available from the Early Learning Centre, retailing at £10. You can also buy them from Amazon for the same price but where as delivery costs £4.95 if ordering online from The Early Learning Centre, delivery from Amazon is free.
The bath toys are recommended for the ages of 6 months to 2 years and consists of a pack of 3 toys. Included in the pack are the following:
A circular shaped fish, which has an orange plastic base with a transparent top. The fish has a reflective silvery inside and contains a small red and yellow ball that rolls around inside.
A triangular shaped frog, which has a green plastic base with a transparent top. The frog has the same reflective inside but this time containing a handful of small colourful plastic beads.
A blue plastic turtle, which also has the transparent top, reflective insides and, like the frog, contains colourful beads, however the transparent top of the turtle has a pattern of triangles, which magnifies the beads inside.
All three of the bath toys rattle when shook, hence the name!
These toys were one of the first bath toys that I bought for my son in order to liven up bath time once he graduated from his baby bath to the big boy bath! My son loves bath time, he loves splashing about and playing with his toys. He does enjoy the ELC Bath, Rattle and Roll set, he likes to push them under the water and see them bounce back up and shakes them around. The toys are nice and chunky and have always been easy for my son to hold. However at 21 months he definitely prefers squirty and pouring bath toys, these probably just don't make enough mess for him!!! He will still play with these toys but does bore of them quickly. Perhaps the upper age limit recommended for these toys should be more around the 18 month mark, but they are definitely suitable for younger babies who are unable to master the squirty/pouring toy variety!
The toys are very easy to keep clean but I've noticed that a small amount of water has managed to leak inside the fish, and I can't drain it back out, although irritating to me, this causes no problem with the toy.
Overall, I will give these toys 4 out of 5 stars but I would base that on them being given to babies ranging from 6-18 months, over 18 months I would say only 3 stars.
Summary: Great for younger babies but not interactive enough for toddlers
