PRODUCT: WOW Toys Bella Butterfly (www.wowtoys.com)WOW Toys Bella Butterfly

DESCRIPTION: A pouring and squirting activity set for the bath. Set contains 4 pieces, including scoop & pour butterfly, spin & pour flower, spin & hide bee, and push & squirt caterpillar. Suitable for children aged 12 months upwards.

GOOD POINTS: Bella Butterfly and her three flower friends make great bathtime accessories, and their pretty purple, turquoise and yellow flower designs will particularly appeal to little girls.

The set contains four chunky and durable plastic toys which are all suitable for use in water (not just baths but paddling pools too!), and all float well on the surface (although they can also be totally submersed). The toys are a great size for small hands to hold and play with, and each has its own unique activity to amuse and distract your child as you wash them.

Bella is a cute yellow butterfly with a wide mouth opening, ideal for scooping up water which can then be poured out through a hole in her bottom! Bella's bath friends include a spin-and-pour flower, which is a flower shaped toy with holes in the base from which water can be streamed, and a rotating butterfly attachment on the top which spins round when water is poured on it.

In addition, there is a spin-and-hide bee, which is a deep-based flower with a ball inside (with a picture of a bee on it). The ball bobs around as water is poured into the flower, and can also be spun round to play hide-and-seek the bee!

The other toy in the set is a fun push-and-squirt caterpillar. This is a flower shaped toy, with a caterpillar's face in the centre which pops up as water is poured onto the flower. Pushing the caterpillar back down squirts water out of holes on the side of the flower.

As well as being great fun for your child to play with, these bath toys have some excellent developmental benefits. In particular, their bright eye-catching colours and water features stimulate senses such as sight, sound, and touch, and the various scooping, pouring, spinning and squirting functions help develop gross motor skills, fine motor skills and hand-eye coordination.

This is, in our opinion, a great bath set which gets you several toys for your money, and provides a variety of simple yet effective activities to help make bathtime an enjoyable and stimulating experience for your child.

BAD POINTS: None except, as is the case with any bath toys, they will need to be regularly cleaned and dried out to prevent the build-up of mould.

PRICE: Approx. £10.99
