Kids nowadays get bored easily. The usual bath toys that look cute and colourful aren't enough for my children anymore. They want the same thing, but also something that can play with them as well. The lovely PR from TOMY was really good at guessing what my children would like and want, not only did they send us the kids' favourite show Raa Raa the Noisy Lion's Interactive Playset with extra figures, they've also sent them 2 lovely bath toys from their Aqua Fun range - the Do-Re-Mi Dolphins and the Swim 'n' Sing Turtle, which not only are vibrant and cute, but also fun to play with.

The Swim 'n' Sing Turtle (rrp £11.99) was quite funny as we weren't expecting a deep male voice 'mom'-ing to a waltz song, with the occasional gurgling noise like he was singing under the water. He can swim upside down as well where you can hear his singing, or normally although his voice will occasionally disappear under the water. It's for 12 months plus but Abby loved playing with him and kept stealing him away from Clay when they were in the same bath.

As it was really easy to push the 'hair' forward to make him sing, he was singing quite a few times during our holiday trip to Yorkshire inside the bag we've put him and his dolphin friends in. At the end hubby has lost interest in the turtle haha!

These dolphins are my favourite bath toys so far. I love the colours and cheeky faces on the dolphins, and for a rrp of £12.99, you do get a lot out of it. There were so many of them, yet only 4-5 can fit in the baby bath tub at once, so plenty of varieties there for the little ones. What impressed me was that they do not require batteries to operate, yet each of them can make a tune by tapping them, causing a whistling effect.

Although they each come with a colour coordinated ring, they can float straight up even without the rings holding them. Clay loves watching the water pouring out from the dolphins, while Abby tried to make tunes with them, or do role plays. The rings alone are fun to play with, but with the whistling dolphins it definitely made them more fun to play with and worth to buy.
