Bath time is a special time for almost all kids. A special time that warrants special toys. The favorite ones in our household are the Stokke Flexi Bath Toy Cups.
What Are The Stokke Flexi Bath Toy Cups?
The Stokke Flexi Bath Toy Cups are, as the name implies, cups that are designed to be used in the bath. They are rubber cups that are made of a food-safe material that is BPA and phthalate-free, so while they aren’t intended for drinking from you don’t need to worry if that happens.
How Do You Clean Stokke Bath Cups?
These cups are waterproof and are dishwasher safe so, you can just clean them in the sink with soap and water or put them in the dishwasher. Even though they are in the bath, you’ll want to clean them now and then to prevent soap build up as well as preventing and mold from forming.
Ours have stayed free of mold for over two years now, but most bath toys will tend to stay wet for long periods of time and promote the grow of mold and mildew. Cleaning and drying after use will prevent this and ensure the lifespan of the cups lasts through multiple children.
We started using this when our children could sit up and begin to manipulate objects. Honestly, at this stage they weren’t really a hit, but around 15 months when they are starting to build dexterity and learning how to stack things, the cups became a popular pick at bath time.
Stokke says that the cups are appropriate for ages of 4 months and over.
We have found that Stokke bath cups are great for a number of activities. Including (but of course not limited to)…
- Practicing pouring
- Fitting inside one another
- Fine motor skill practice with the lid
- Lining up with on another
- Showering water out of (some cups have holes in the bottom
- Learning colors (the cups are yellow, green, blue, and red and the lid is navy)
