When my daughter was around 5 months she started baby swimming lessons at a local swimming pool. She absolutely loved it from the start and it has really helped to build her water confidence. During one of the lessons the babies were given fish shaped foam mirrors to play with, my daughter absolutely loved this and cried when she had to give it back.
At the time we had very few bath toys, and I thought this would be something she would like to play with in the bath as well so when we got home I promptly searched the internet to find her one eventually settling on buying the Edushape Crab from Amazon for £8.99. Edushape also do a frog and yellow fish version.
The crab is made of bright coloured foam and has a child safe mirror - it is very well made and durable. The crab has a very friendly face and is easy for my daughter to hold and grip. Her face lit up when we gave it to her and she loves to play with in the bath, even after much chewing and play it looks as new.
The other great thing about this is that when wet it will stick to flat surfaces such as the tiles or if used in a swimming pool it would stick to a child' float. After use it dries quickly.
My daughter absolutely loves to play with her Crab, and enjoys looking at her reflection and chewing him. The crab is very durable and stands up to this very well- still looking like new. Highly recommend for both bath and pool play the only downside is the price as for what it is it is quite expensive but I do think it will last a long time.
