New Eco-Friendly Baby Water Toys, Splash About!

While the Starfish, Whale and Stingray float making them ideal for throwing and retrieving in baby swim classes or as a comforter for little ones who need more encouragement in water. The soft ergonomic shapes are easy for little fingers to hold and light enough to throw. Aftercare is simple, rinse and squeeze dry after use!
