What they say:

“Have baby bath toys taken over the family bath? This extra large bath toy organiser is shaped like a scoop, making it easy to grab toys in a flash. Just unhook the scooper from the wall and glide it across the water for quick, convenient cleanup. 

“The holes allow you to rinse and drain toys in bulk, reducing mold and mildew risk and providing bath toy storage, all at once. 

“The handy toy scoop has a hanging bracket that sticks to most bathroom walls with adhesive strips so you can keep everything clean and off the floor. ”

I would definitely recommend the Munchkin Bath Toy Scoop to a friend. It is a lovely design with plenty of holes for water drainage. The handle has grooves to help with gripping it, which helps when it is wet! It comes in a gorgeous shade of blue. This makes light work of tidying up after bath time and contains the toys nicely when not in use. My sons have also loved using the scoop to play with during bath time! Needless do they know they help me to tidy up!

How did this product make your life easier?     

The bath toy scoop is great to store my children's toys after bath time. They easily scoop up the toys from the bath and then cleverly drains the water, leaving my children's toys dry and reduces the risk of mould formation which tends to be a problem with bath toys. It helps to keep my bathroom tidy but looks great at the same time.

What changes would you make to this product?

I feel the pricing of the bath toy scoop is a little dear. Ot would be great of it was a little cheaper. It is a great product, and as they say 'you get what you pay for" bit £15 for bath toy storage is a little stteep in my opinion. Also, the suction pads are quite strong however they would benefit from being a tad bit stronger.

I'd recommend this product as this is more than just a storage container for toys. The design of it let us play a game of sharks to eat up all the small toys and then I hung it on its hook. After getting the two out of the bath I then ran the scoop under the tap to rinse the soap scum away - this was the bit I loved most as our other bath storage didn't have holes to do this so things got grimy quickly.

How did this product make your life easier?     

Our bath is surrounded by wood panelling, not tiles, so having the adhesive strips to secure the hook rather than suction cups was essential to be able to put it somewhere convenient that wouldn't interfere with my bath time when it was my turn! It's very quick and easy to use and I love the fact that I can rinse the toys whilst they're in the scoop as the holes allow you to do so.

What changes would you make to this product?

As we really enjoyed playing sharks when we scooped up the toys at the end of bath time I'd like to see a tail put on it! It already has fins on either side to help it scoop through the water so this combined with the overall look and colour of it would finish it off nicely for me! Its a really good quality product so just to add to the fun factor is all I can think of.

When this first arrived, my husband asked why would we need it. At the end of bath time, after the scoop had been used to put away the bath toys, my husband could then see why people would choose this product. The bath toys were quite neatly stored away leaving the bath free for adults to use. The design seems quite simple and easy to use. It comes in two parts, the wall mounted hook and the actual scoop. My 3 year old liked trying to scoop up his bath toys and then watching the water fall out through the carefully positioned holes. The holes in the base should allow air in so the toys don't go mouldy.

How did this product make your life easier?     

The actual product itself is deceptively simple and quite a good idea but probably not something you would rush out to buy. I like that it allows air to the toys and drains at the same time. This should hopefully make it more hygienic and stop the dreaded black mould that can appear on bath toys when left wet too long. It is very nice to walk into your bathroom for a bath and not have to move all the toys from the sides before you get in.

The biggest plus about this product for me is that it sticks securely to the tiles. It is fun and eye catching for babies and children and multifunctional as they can use it as a toy too.

How did this product make your life easier?     

I previously used a storage product that was suction cupped to the wall and often fell off, which was annoying and inconvenient when it happened in the night and made a bang! It is also a lot tidier. As my babies get older I will be encouraging them to tidy up their bath toys too using this product.

Would you choose this product to win?

I love how simple it was to fix to the tiles and how secure it was. Many similar products are suction cups which do not stay stuck for that long and can be rather annoying. The design is also very clever and looks fun whilst still being practical. It can actually be used as a toy while they are in the bath and then tidily store the rest when finished too.

For me bath toys were something I always loved the idea of, yet tried to avoid at times. One of those reasons was I dreaded the clear up and storage of wet toys. This bath time scoop is fab, saving time by being able to scoop up all of the toys at once as well as having multiple drainage points to ensure there is no water residue left. The product comes with simple steps to instruct how to hang the product from your chosen points yet very self explanatory.

How did this product make your life easier?  

As a mum any saved time is greatly received, and this product has saved me some. It allows me to easily and quickly tidy away toys after bath time and saves me the worry of draining them. Within a matter of hours the product is free of any excess water residue so the worry of the normally inevitable mould is no longer a concern which will maintain the bath toys for so much longer.   

Would you choose this product to win?

For me this product takes all my usual concerns around bath toy storage away. My main concern is mould and due to this great design with the multiple drainage points I have no more worries. Secondly this product is pleasing to the eye and made from durable material so have am happy that its great value for money. Furthermore after one easy application the product is stuck firmly using a sticky strip with no concerns over its sturdiness.

What changes would you make to this product?

Although this product was excellent I feel it is somewhat on the small size as more bath toys appear. Due to the shape of the scoop it would be difficult to fit larger bath toys in and therefore l feel eventually I would need another one and then the cost of it would have more of an impact on my opinion.
