best swimming pool toys.
When I was little, I aspired to be a Marine Biologist. I spent countless hours in the waters of my home pool and the pools at countless hotels (my family took alot of trips together). So, imagine my surprise when my 4 year old takes an immediate interest in ocean life and all things water related. Since I bought the Swimways Gobble Gobble Guppies, she's been enamored with our backyard pool! She loves to swim now, whereas before I bought this toy, she was fonder of bathtime because that's where all her toys would be.
We've developed an interesting and amusing summer routine. It's wake-up, eat breakfast, get dressed in a swimsuit (a hint to me), and wait for me to put on her little floaties. We'll spend at least 2 hours every morning out by the pool with me being the ever-watchful mother and my little girl playing with the Swimways Gobble Gobble Guppies to her heart's content. Not only are they fun to play with in the water, she loves the smiling shark and cute little fishies! They're numbered so she can easily make a scored game out of her progress; plus, they don't float too far away which means I don't have to worry about her venturing to the forbidden deep-end of the pool.
She's morphed into my amazing Marine Biologist, examining what she calls the "shark's tummy foods" after she catches all the Swimways Gobble Gobble Guppies. My only problem will be getting her out of the pool when the weather turns chilly! I've made a promise that these will become bathtime toys when it gets too cold to swim; a deal that she's happy with for now. I imagine the Swimways Gobble Gobble Guppies will be a long-lasting playtime favorite for her and her 15 month old brother when he takes an interest in pool playing.
