Mothercare Bath Crayons
Disadvantages: Hard to wash off, especially tile grout
For my daughters second birthday she received a set of bath crayons from Mothercare. I've never seen anything like this before and thought they looked quite fun for both me and my daughter.
The pack contains five different coloured bath crayons. These come packaged on a piece of cardboard and are housed inside a piece of transparent plastic stuck to the front of the cardboard. The crayons are coloured red, yellow, orange, green and blue.
Each crayon is around 2 inches long and is mainly made from plastic. The crayon is held inside a plastic tube that is used as the handle, this plastic has grooves down the majority of it so that they are easier to grip with wet hands. On one side of the handle is a little plastic button that needs to be pushed up to allow the crayon to be pushed up the plastic tube so you can use them. The button is quite stiff, I guess this is a good thing as it stops the crayon from falling back down the tube handle.
Mothercare state that the crayons are suitable for use both on the bath and tiles. When we used the crayons for the first time we was both excited, my daughter couldn't operate the button on the handle for herself so I had to do that but once the crayons were ready she got really excited. We originally started drawing on the bath and it was fab, it didn't take much pressure to get the colours to come out on the side of the bath. Then my daughter started drawing on the tiles and I didn't think anything of it to start with, that was until bath time was over!
After my daughter finished in the bath and was dressed and sorted, I went to clean our creations off the side of the bath. It did take quite a bit of elbow grease to get the colours to come off the bath side and tiles, then I noticed my daughter had managed to get a bit of red crayon on the tile grout between a couple of tiles. This was a nightmare to get off and no matter what I tried it wouldn't come off completely. I still have a faint red line between the tiles now!
The crayons cost £4 and are available to purchase from Mothercare either in store or online.
The bath crayons are quite a good and fun idea to begin with. After they've been used however, the nightmare begins and the effort it takes to get rid of the drawings and crayon markings is just too much to warrant these crayons being used every bath time. We've probably used these a handful of times in over a year of having them, not recommended!
Summary: Not something I will be buying
