SoapSox for Bath Time Fun

 Disney Baby SoapSox®

 The new SoapSox® Disney Baby line of bath toys feature some of Disney’s most beloved characters including: Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Ariel and Flounder from The Little Mermaid, as well as, Nemo and Squirt from Finding Nemo. SoapSox® drenched the bath toy market in 2013 when it introduced its lovable 2-in-1 stuffed animal washcloths. Now kids can cuddle their favorite stuffed Disney Baby companions during the day and then play with them during bath time at night for added fun in the tub. Snuggle, cuddle, and play together all day and when it’s time for your bath, bring them with you! A patented soap pocket transforms lovable SoapSox® into sudsy wash cloth – just add soap and scrub.

I think that the new SoapSox® Disney Baby line is absolutely adorable.  Our grandchildren love SoapSox, but I think that one of my grown daughters has decided that Ariel should be hers, as this is her favorite Disney movie of all time.  Age range is Birth+….After all, who says that grown ups can’t have fun in the tub too! MSRP: $14.95

  • Easy for Parents and Fun for Kids
  • “Feed” SoapSox liquid or bar soap
