Tomy Bathtime Whirly Washer £7.36 @ Amazon
My son mostly had just empty plastic containers to play with in the bath. Deprived possibly, but he had a lot of fun filling and emptying them. One toy he did have though was the kind that stuck on the side of the bath and he did love that, mostly because it filled with water and had whirly bits. I think he'd have had a lot of fun with the Tomy Bathtime Whirly Washer too, which Amazon has on sale for £7.36, reduced from £16.99. Delivery is free with Amazon Prime.
I really don't think I'd be inclined to splash out nearly £20 for a bath toy, but at less than a tenner it makes a good buy. Plus, a good gift as well. All my son's bath toys were presents from various relations - I think that toys for the bath just isn't something you tend to splash out on as a parent (sorry for the bad pun!).
You load washing into the drum, close the door, and press the button to create bubbles. Press the On switch and watch the drum spinning just like a real washing machine. A click sound indicates when the cycle has finished and the clothes are ready to be hung out to dry on the drying rack.
The Whirly Washer comes with a host of accessories, including brightly coloured, quick drying cloths (4 items), a fold-out drying rack, a liquid container and a washing basket.
