Munchkin-Bath-Toy9.8/10 (Expert Score)
6 boats float and link together to create a “little boat train”
Top Positive Review
The good stuff: They’re single piece construction, no places for mold to hide, and sturdy. They dry out easily, and most importantly, my 2 year old loves them.
The meh: They’re advertised to connect together as a train, which my daughter loves doing, but the connection is so loose that the slightest movement of the water causes them to come apart. It’d be nice to see a better connection. But not a deal breaker.
A lot of the negative reviews fixate on the fact that these easily tip over and the connection between boats is tenuous at best. My advice: Look at these through the eyes of a 2 year old who doesn’t necessarily know which way they’re supposed to float. They are solid, they work as scoops for pouring water, they have little holes in the top for sprinkling water, and all in all I’d highly recommend.
Top Critical Review
I was searching for bathtime toys that do not collect mold and thought these were great because they are easy to clean and simple,I also noticed that these bathtime boats have numbers to teach LO’s which I thought was a win win,because we are teaching our toddler to count. The boats get here and we were disappointed to find that we received two 1’s, two 2’s two 3’s….this isn’t going to help our kids learn their numbers….another thing is that the boats do not float. If you are okay with these deal breakers and are just searching for something easy to clean,that doesn’t collect mold then this is the item. Unfortunately these were not for us. We would not buy these again and we consider these non giftable because they send you the same numbers.
Cons: -boats do not float
-bosts are not giftable due to the repetitive numbers
-not helpful to toddlers learning their numbers
Pros: -easy to clean
-does not collect mold

Can These Be Recycled?
Most plastics never make it to be recycled. Especially now that China (the former leader in recycling plastics) is no longer buying plastic for recycling (as of Jan 2018). The best way to keep plastic pollution from accruing these days is to just *not purchase plastics*. Recycling doesn’t fix our problems. Even *before??
Do these float upright? I’m considering them for a classroom activity. Thank you
Answer: I bought them to use for my preschool transportation unit and a sink or float activity. They do stay upright. You can also link them and they have numbers on them. Definitely worth it!
