Logan is a complete water baby, the first thing he does when he is upstairs is walk straight to the bathroom and right up to the bath. I'm sure he would jump in if he could even if the bath wasn't full of water. We were delighted when the lovely people from Splash n Bump asked us to test and review their Bath Bumper Set and we gladly accepted. Here is what we thought.
We really like the bright colours that the Splash n Bump Bath Bumper Set has. An eye catching bright blue with the four sponges coloured purple, yellow, green and red. These really do capture Logan's attention. So in each box you get 4 Bath bumper pads and 4 shaped sponges that fit into the middle of each bumper. The bumper pads are all the same size and measure 50x23cm. To care for your bumper you just wipe clean and you can just hand wash the sponges, nice and simple. I leave the bumpers to air dry over the bath as well as the sponges so they don't smell.
Splash n Bump really have safety and bath time fun on their minds and they have definitely pulled it off with the bath bumper set. Logan can enough the freedom of the big bath without me worrying if he's going to hurt himself as he now likes to walk around in the bath and I'm petrified he'll bump his head or knock his teeth out. I don't have to worry so much now we have the bath bumpers as they are nice and thick and well capable of cushioning a fall. The bath bumpers are also shaped so they can inter-connect along the bath which is good to cover the sides or you can use them individually on seperate parts of your bath.
The suction cups on the back of the bath bumpers are really good. They stuck on first time and held on securely even though Logan was hanging onto them and splashing around and when he was finished with his bath the bumpers were easy for me to remove so I was really happy with that. Another good feature of the bath bumpers is that they have a bumpy surface giving little hands a chance to explore and feel new textures.
Logan enjoyed the sponges a bit too much and could easily bite chunks out of them so maybe best keeping the sponges away from little ones until they learn not to bite everything. I think that's the only problem we had with the Splash n Bump everything else was great and worked perfectly. The sponges are good for hand to eye co-ordination though and Logan was trying his hardest to put the sponges into their slots and pick them out again.
You can purchase the Splash n Bump Bath Bumper set for £24.99 from Amazon and it will be coming soon to Mothercare stores.
Overall we really like the Splash n Bump Bath Bumper Set. Very good for bath safety but also incorporating an element of fun and play. The price is reasonable for what you get and I would quite happily pay £24.99. I think this would make an excellent gift and something more unusual and can be used for the next baby as well instead of just the usual clothes. The sponges were our only issue but not a massive one.
