Splashy Towers bathtime game is only available from Spark Bubble. This colourful selection of foam 3-dimensional shapes is perfect for building towers and other imaginative structures in the bath. Splashy Towers is a popular bath toy for encouraging creativity, as well as mathematical thinking.
Arrange blocks on top of each other on the large floating base. Experiment with shape and balance to create a strong tower. Maybe send a tidal wave over the top and see whether your building is tough enough to withstand it! All 30 pieces in this soft foam set are waterproof and float so this fun bath game is ideal for water play.
The 3d blocks give adults and children a chance to explore and discuss the different shapes including cubes, cuboids, cylinders and triangular prisms. The set comes with a guide suggesting games and tips to help develop your child's mathematical skills whilst they have fun playing in the bath.

Spark Bubble Thoughts and Ideas:
"We designed this bath toy so we love it! Children can create imaginative structures by placing building blocks on the floating base, or play some of the other bath games that are recommended in the information leaflet. Bathtime is the perfect time for parents and carers to help children develop geometrical language and mathematical thinking, and the leaflet includes a glossary of terms that might be useful.
Games you can play with 'Splashy Towers' to help develop Maths skills include: Sorting the shapes into groups by different criteria (number of faces, colours etc), or asking children to find different 2d shapes (such as circle or triangle) that are on the faces of these 3d shapes. Another game is when one person describes one of the shapes whilst the other person tries to guess which one it is.
Children love free building their own designs of Splashy Tower, or they can be given extra challenges like: Make a building with a hidden compartment, or design an obstacle course for a small Duplo figure to play on in the bath."
