16 brilliant bath toy storage solutions

Best was to store bath toys

Kids love to play with toys in the bath, and we love the way they keep minis occupied while they have a much-needed soak. But when the splish-splashing is done, that sea of toys needs somewhere to live, which is why convenient bath toy storage is such a sanity saver.

Leaving a pile of toys in the bottom of a wet tub overnight is a fast-track to mouldy bath toys. Clever bath toy storage units give your squirt’s favourite playthings a designated spot to dry out so that they’re organised, clean and ready for tomorrow’s splash-a-thon.
