Aquatopia Stepper Stool and Bath Toy Organizer Giveaway

With a new Baby going to be here anyday now I have been trying to get things in order and make sure I have everything I need. Since babies grow up so fast sometimes it is nice to have certain things ahead of time that they will need.

 I was super excited to be contacted by Aquatopia and asked to review their Stepper Stool and Bath Toy Organizer. I already own their faucet cover and kneeling mat and love them so I expected good things from their Stepper Stool and Bath Toy Organizer. As usual they came through.

The Stepper Stool

Help little ones reach new heights with a step stool perfectly sized for the newly walking. The plush, ½” memory foam pad topped with fleece provides incredible comfort and the wider-than-average base enhances stability as baby steps up to the potty or sink. The memory foam pad removes for easy machine washing.  My Son Shane who is 4 and tall for his age still can't reach the sink at our new house and loves this stool. He says it is more comfortable on his feet and prefers it to the plastic top one we have had since he was a toddler.  I know our new baby will also enjoy this as well and I really like the fact that the memory foam top can be removed and washed.

Bath Toy Organizer

Meet the scoop that takes a bite out of bath-time clean-up! It snaps off its clamp to scoop toys and snaps back on to dry and store them. When kids are ready to play with toys again, they can simply tap it on the head and watch all the toys pour out of the mouth. The clamp fits most standard tubs and installs without hardware.
Scoops, stores & dries toys
Mouth opens to free toys
Deluxe clamp
Secures scoop to tub
To install, use & clean
pvc-free, bpa-free, phthalate-free, lead-free

This is one of those items I wish I would have owned sooner. It is great for keeping bath toys organized and is fun for kids to play with while taking a bath.

Aquatopia has been kind enough to offer one of my readers a  Stepper Stool and Bath Toy Organizer.
