Juli Auclair: Hi everybody. Jessica Hartshorn from American Baby is here with us today. We're very happy to have you. Jessica Hartshorn: Hi!. Juli Auclair: She's gonna tell us about some of the best bath products that are out there right now. Bath time is such a special time for a mom and baby or for a dad and baby, and these are gonna make it even better. Jessica Hartshorn: Yeah. Juli Auclair: A lot of fun, a lot of nice colors. Jessica Hartshorn: And none of it is too expensive either, which I like about the whole bath category. Juli Auclair: Cheap is good. Jessica Hartshorn: Uh huh. Juli Auclair: Okay. Jessica Hartshorn: This is a Fisher-Price-- Juli Auclair: Let's save. Jessica Hartshorn: Yeah, definitely, definitely. Fisher-Price's new Whale of a Tub, which is where you wanna start a baby is in an infant tub because they can't really sit up yet in a big tub. So you get an infant tub. They fit in there really well, about 6 months and younger. Juli Auclair: Does this grow with you because it looks like it could be pretty big? Jessica Hartshorn: You could definitely use it on a baby who's older than 6 months as well. Juli Auclair: Okay. Jessica Hartshorn: They've given it a nice size. But it's got the cradle in there for a young infant. Juli Auclair: Okay. Jessica Hartshorn: And to that point, Summer Infant makes a different idea called a Baby Bather. Juli Auclair: This looks like a little chair. Jessica Hartshorn: Yeah, it's a like a bouncer seat for your baby, but it's a mesh. So you put a young baby in there and give them a sponge bath or, you know, you can do the whole in a bigger tub and give them a bath. The important thing, of course, whenever you're bathing the baby is that they're not out of your arm's reach. Juli Auclair: Ever, of course! Jessica Hartshorn: Right. You do not leave this in the tub with the baby alone obviously. But-- Juli Auclair: And this would dry very quickly? Jessica Hartshorn: Yeah, and it's $17 and makes bathing really easy. Juli Auclair: Okay. So now that we have our babies in the bath and they're safe, we need some toys to keep them occupied. Jessica Hartshorn: Yes. Juli Auclair: And you've got some that are already here in the water. Jessica Hartshorn: Yeah. These are from Boon. They're called the Scrubble Set, which I kinda like. Juli Auclair: Cute! Jessica Hartshorn: They're squirters. I think they would encourage a kid to help, you know, bathe themselves 'cause they're so fun to squirt. Juli Auclair: They take a little shower. Jessica Hartshorn: Yeah. I think they're really cute and kinda modern. Juli Auclair: Okay. Jessica Hartshorn: And-- Juli Auclair: Oh, I like the washcloths you have here. Jessica Hartshorn: Uh huh. Juli Auclair: Nice and colorful. Jessica Hartshorn: We got those at Babies R Us. Yeah. They're from the Amy Coe line, and they, you know, it's a set with matching ducks: 4 washcloths and a matching duck for $10. Juli Auclair: This is not just your yellow rubber ducky anymore. Jessica Hartshorn: No! Juli Auclair: This is something special. I like that. Jessica Hartshorn: It matches your bathroom. These are from Boon, too. It's kind of an interesting take on-- there's always little fish with nets to catch them. These are little bugs they call it their, you know, their little bug and net set. Juli Auclair: Oh, that's great. So you fill them around the tub. Jessica Hartshorn: Yeah. Juli Auclair: And then your baby, when they get a little bit older, they can try to catch them. Jessica Hartshorn: Right. It helps keep them in the tub for a while 'cause they're entertained. Juli Auclair: Okay, little animals over here, little critters. Jessica Hartshorn: Uh huh. Alex Toys makes a ton of bath stuff. That's just a little sample, the little squirting toys. And there's a doll company named Corolle that makes dolls that can go in the tub. And she's sweet. She comes with her own docket and her own pacifier and she's got a soft body. Juli Auclair: And how does she do about drying out?
