‘Ducks of Hazzard’ our squirting ducks review with H&A Bathtime Buddies
When we first heard about the opportunity to join the Bathtime Squad and review H&A’s wonderful Bathtime Buddies products we were really excited. We have recently started a new routine with the babies and at the same time EVERY evening they enjoy a bath before bed. They absolutely LOVE bath time so getting some lovely new bath toys/products to play with is something we would eagerly desire here at dontcallmestepmummy.
We were sent the fantastic squirting ducks to review, and we knew we had to come up with a creative idea to be in with a chance of competing with so many amazing bloggers. We decided upon Ducks of Hazzard for our theme and even rewrote Jessica Simpson’s soundtrack single from the movie. We had so much fun with this blog post but more importantly the children have absolutely loved playing with the squirting ducks. Eden can’t quite get the ducks to squirt yet, but Judah is having plenty of fun showing her how it’s done. Also, they’ve been learning to share, as Judah has been informed that he can’t play with all four ducks at once when his sister is in the bath with him.
It’s great as they come in four different colours: purple, yellow, orange and green. So the children can choose the colours they want. Judah has now learned these colours and I know in time Eden will be able to vocalise them too. Four ducks is great also as it’s a fantastic starting point for learning to count. Our little ones understand that when they’re both in the bath they are allowed two each. These ducks are made with phalate free plastic which means that should one of our little darlings manage to actually get a bite out of one (extremely unlikely but you never know) they won’t be harmed from ingesting it.
My favourite thing about the H & A Bathtime Buddies products is that they are so affordable. These little beauties retail at around £2 a pack and are available from your local Supermarkets (Asda, Tesco, Wilko & Sainsbury’s) making it so easy to make bath time more fun. It is such an important part of our routine, and brings back so many memories of the girls making words out of the alphabet letters at our first home together. Bath time is something children seem to really enjoy, and is a great way to tire mine out before bed.
Judah loved sliding the ducks down the ramp he made from part of his train set and I’ll never forget his face the first time he learned how to squirt Daddy with water by squeezing the duck. Our little boy has always loved Bath time and is now teaching his sister how much fun it is too.
We had so much fun editing our ‘Ducks of Hazzard’ video. James loved rewriting the lyrics to ‘These Boots are Made for Walking’…. ‘These Ducks are Made for Waddling’ he was absolutely in stitches trying not to laugh out loud whilst I recorded the vocals on my iphone voice memos. Apologies for the quality of sound, but we had an absolute whale (no pun intended) of a time coming up with creative ideas for our Ducks of Hazzard. Who knows what else we could’ve got up to had we planned props better. We had wanted Daisy Duck to wear one of Barbies bikini tops, but in true fashion the girls couldn’t find any of their Barbies’ bikinis.
We hope you enjoy our short video of the children putting their squirting ducks to good use. Thank you very much Tots 100 and H & A for allowing us the opportunity to take part in this fun review and for sending us the colourful ducks to do it with too.
