Bath time is always a joyful experience, watching your little one play with their toys and belly laugh at all the bubbles. But what happens to all those toys once the tub is empty and your tot is tucked away in bed?
We're all guilty of just wanting to leave them all in the tub ready for their next bath, (and we've probably all done it too), because finding somewhere to put them can sometimes be tricky when you don't have the space.
If you're wondering how you can enjoy a relaxing bath yourself, without those pesky rubber ducks floating about, then our pick of bath toy storage is the one for you to browse. From scoops to nets and caddies, and even a frog, we've found plenty of storage solutions to keep your bathroom tidy (until the next time).
How to make bath time enjoyable
Toddlers are not always delighted when it comes to bath time, so here are a few things you can do to make that time of the day just a little bit more exciting for your tot.
Toys: Rubber ducks, little water guns, boats and any other toys you can think of so your little one has plenty to keep themselves entertained with.
Music: Introduce some of your bubba's favourite tunes to bath time so they can have a little sing-along while they're splashing about.
Bath bombs: Child-friendly bath bombs and salts can help soothe your toddler and will also make the water colourful and all the more enticing.
Join in: Combine your bath time with your baby's bath time, and we promise they'll enjoy the extra company and some one-on-one bonding time.
The best bath toy storage 2021
With a zipper at the bottom of the heavy-duty net, it's easy to empty your little one's toys into the bath. The net also allows for safe air dry rather than being stuck in a box. It has a bucket that not only sticks to any flat surface, but can be detached from the wall to scoop up any toys.
Review: "The best bath toy tidy I have had. Really strong suction and easy to gather toys back up with the scoop. Such a good price too. I will probably buy more of these in the future for gifts."
Ubbi's freestanding bath caddy is just what you need to keep bathtime play in check. Simply scoop up the toys with the handle, place the bin in the base, and your little one's bathtime mates will be dry in no time. The draining holes at the bottom ensure drying efficiency, and we love the modern look that'll blend in with any decor.
Review: "Best baby bath accessory we have purchased. I love how you can let the toys drip down into the bottom tray and don’t have to worry about drying them all off first. Also means it doesn’t have to be kept on the side of the bath since there is no worry of damaging woodwork from wet toys dripping, which happens with other bath toy holders."
With four heavy-duty lock suction cups, this storage net is perfect for popping on the wall next to your bath. You don't have to worry about tidying away the wet toys either, as they'll dry off over the bath.
Review: "This was a great buy, the bath storage actually was bigger than expected with loads of room for toys. The adhesive hooks are very strong and are very easy to install on the tiles. We have unpolished tiles but this adhesive hook works perfectly. The bath net organiser can be washed. Very pleased with my purchase. Highly recommended."

Review: "Needed something to keep children’s bath toys out of reach when not in use, they somehow used to manage to find their way into wardrobes etc! (Pesky toddler). They’ve been up on the tiled wall for about a month and haven’t budged. Really easy to put up and fits plenty of bath toys. Would definitely recommend."

Review: "This is easily the best bath toy holder, it's so easy to put together and fits a lot of toys. It easily fits the bath, and is easy to move around. I'd 100% recommend this. Also my 4 year old likes to put it in the bath upside down, lay down on it and "relax" so it's a fun toy in itself. It's easy to clean in hot water with some soap and a toothbrush when it gets a bit dirty."
This lovely little bath toy holder is such a pleasant addition to bathtime. It has adhesive strips for a perfect stick to the bathtub resulting in a lot less playtime chaos. It even comes with an extra large scoop to help you store all those bath toys.

Review: "Good, powerful suction keeps it holding its position even when full. It's also easy to access and clean properly and looks good in our bathroom."
Picking up toys after a long bath and bedtime can be one of the reasons you don't want to tidy away the bath toys, but this super scoop makes it quick and easy to tidy all those bath toys away. The best part is, you can turn it into a fun game for your tot to do, and simply stick it to the wall after they've scooped their toys away.
Review: "Fantastic. Stuck to bathroom tiles very strongly. Bigger than expected so holds alot of bath toys (at least 25 of the munchkin toy animals). Lovely neutral colour which goes with my bathroom aesthetic."
