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.

2. Skip Hop
From Skip Hop’s Moby collection comes a bath toy organiser as clever as it is cute. Not only does it make clean-up a breeze thanks to its large storage volume, but it comes with a zippered mesh bottom for quick release of toys when bath time rolls ’round again.
It’s the sweetest little toy tub around and it’s making bath time tidier for everyone. A two-part system, the Ubbi contains both a bin and a base included allowing for proper drainage and good drying of toys. When it needs a wash, it’s safe to pop in the dishwasher.

Bath duckies and squishy fishies will be well looked after with this bathtime pal in the mix – in fact, little water babes may even want to pack up themselves! It comes with a lightweight mesh basket and can hold up to 2kg of toys.
6. 3 Sprouts
These sweet bath pals come are made of stretchy, soft neoprene and come with a single suction cap that sticks to most tile or glass surfaces. Roomy and cute as can be, they’re an easy way to make tidying fun.
This clever bath caddy stretches across the width of the tub to hold bath toys in place while babes soak up the suds. It’s fab for creating a safe barrier between bub and the bath spout, plus there’s even a handy soap dish with a hook for hanging face washers.
8. Jolly Jumper
Got a lot of bath toys on your hands? This mesh hanging organiser measures over 47cm in width, so there’s even room for those squeaky bath books your little one can’t get enough of. It comes with two suction caps that stick to most glass or tile surfaces.
Get the kids to put their bath toys away by ‘feeding’ the hungry pelican! The pelican bath pouch hooks over the edge of the bath and allows toys to drain and dry in his mesh bill. We love!

This clever organiser helps you corner the mess and keep your bathroom looking ship-shape. Made of mould-resistant materials, it’s well-sized to fit all of your poppet’s playthings, and then some. Four suction caps are included for use on smooth surfaces.
This convenient bathtime helper can be adjusted to fit the width of almost any bathtub. It comes with divider panels to keep your little one’s soap separate from toys, and there are slotted sides to facilitate drainage. Dishwasher-safe, it also doubles as a play tray.
Sure, it’s technically a kitchen bin, but as The Cottage Market beautifully demonstrates, this handy storage gem makes packing up bath toys a cinch. Hang it on a wall hook or lean it against the side of the tub. Too easy.
15. Fruit Basket
