Kids can sometimes be reluctant to take a bath. They think of all sorts of excuses why there's no need to simply sit in some water and get their bodies clean. Sometimes, it's out of anxiety. I, along with most mothers, know that it can take some creativity to get children not to dread bath time. I buy toys and other items to get them excited. Rubber duckies, floating figurines, and other goodies are dumped in the bath water with my nieces and nephews when they come over to stay, hoping it makes the bath time experience more fun.
A somewhat new and innovative way to get kids more excited about bath time is SoapSox. They are the next generation of washcloths for kids. Each SoapSox critter looks like a typical stuffed animal, yet they are designed to go in the bath. Every SoapSox is “stuffed” with an antimicrobial sponge on the inside.
SoapSox work like a washcloth in that bar soap can be stuffed inside the entry point opening or liquid soap can be poured in there. Once the soap is in, dunk the SoapSox in water and allow it to lather. Kids can then use the SoapSox to gently wash their entire body. Built-in child-size finger pockets allow children to easily grasp the SoapSox and keep a firm grip while cleaning.
SoapSox can be found at Nordstrom, Buy Buy Baby, Bed Bath & Beyond and many other stores around the country and retail for $14.95. SoapSox are an adorably fun way for kids to get excited about bath time. An added plus is that each purchase of SoapSox gives back to organizations that provide safe places for children.
