-Makes bath time fun
(Inevitable with toddlers)
Bath time is very hit and miss for us in our house. Sometimes it’s easy and you can actually get your baby clean with little effort, and make it fun for them! Other times, it’s really tough. They get cranky, they fight, and even getting clean can get messy… The water, the soap, the wash cloth and the toys all end up everywhere. Not generally a problem, except for the soap, which can be a pain to clean up off the floor before someone slips and breaks their neck.
Also, sometimes my baby gets nervous around running water and doesn’t like to be near it. If you have a child that gets nervous or cranky, and you have bath time issues, give Soapsox a try. It helped keep my baby entertained during the filling up the tub phase, when he always freaks out.
Soapsox is a wash cloth product that tackles that and provides a solution for not only those issues, but the flinging, flying soap! It’s basically a sponge that you pour soap into and it keeps it contained, so you can get bath time done easy and it keeps it fun for them!
Luke and I used “Scorch” at bath time, which is a super cute colorful dragon plush toy wash cloth, but they come in several different characters to choose from.
- “Tank the Shark”
- “Hunter the Gator”
- “Jackson the Whale”
- Ariel” and “Flounder” from The Little Mermaid
- “Nemo” and “Squirt” from Finding Nemo
It’s super soft and functions as a normal soft plush toy wash cloth for regular playtime outside of bath, but then your toddler can take it straight into bath time with them! They (or you) can “feed” soap straight into the mouth of the character and then it’s easy to create a lather that will last through the whole bath! It features built-in finger pockets to help you wash your child and make sure he gets clean!
Although, the best thing about these Soapsox wash cloth characters, is that it allows them to play with the toy as they bathe and encourages and teaches them to clean themselves independently! And instead of making it a chore, these have made it just and extension of playtime! Luke had fun splashing around with his dragon, Scorch, and being able to throw it back and forth in the tub!
The interior of the wash cloth is made of an antimicrobial sponge, while the outside is made of really soft terry cloth. They each come with a hanging string also, so you can attach it to be able to hang it up to dry right in the shower every day, just like a loofah. When it comes time to clean it, you just throw the wash cloth in the washer with everything else and then dry it in the dryer, super simple! Then it’s ready to go for playtime again! Each character gift set comes with a waterproof book that is fun to bring into bath time too, but if you want, you can buy just the character sponge on its own!

The price for the wash cloth toy characters range from the $10-$15 range, which, to me seems like a really good value considering you will be using this almost everyday for years as they grow! The older they get, the more independent they can be using these as their soap sponges, and they won’t even realize that they are cleaning themselves!
If you have a child that is nervous or cranky at bath time, or have a child that just does not want to give up their stuffed animal when it comes time to get clean, I would definitely recommend trying the Soapsox wash cloth toys! It will help soothe their nerves and hopefully make bath time fun for them! It would make great gifts for baby showers and first birthdays!
