We are all a bit under the weather high temperatures, chills etc so a soothing bath seemed a fabulous idea. I was sent these fabulous bathtimebuddies Alphabet set to review. We would love to be a product ambassador.

Firstly some music to set the mood http://youtu.be/4KmKkV3ddAo
The set comes all packaged in a sturdy plastic container which acts as a storage tub when not playing with the letters.
The letters are brightly coloured and tactile. Ideal for little hands. http://instagram.com/p/yokbHpw1Ai/
At first there were just letters amongst the bubbles. The children had great fun touching them and gathering them up with a plastic sieve.
We then introduced some other bath toys boats, ducks and frogs. My pre schooler -aged 4 and Primary one – aged 5 enjoyed sounding out ‘b’ for boat, ‘f’ for frog etc
My 5 year old enjoyed finding the letters to make up the word to match the object. A great hands on learning tool in a very different learning environment.
We also sorted the letters into different colour groups and practiced our colour recognition counting them as we went.
One of the features I liked best is the very well designed draining aspect on the storage tub lid. Children are able to play with their toys, join in the tidying up of the activity then tip the tub upside down and watch the water drain away till next time.
We have owned bath letters before and these are so much easier to use and enjoyable to play with. As the tub serves as a fantastic storage vessel the letters are kept neat and tidy. I can see these letters being used a lot during summer in the water trough.
As we went downstairs after bathtime my 4 year old shouted ‘ I loved those letters’ – straight from the mouth of babes happy, happy children.
