#BathToyOrganizer With Four Sea Squirt Toys #Review

     We don't have a bath tub in our house.  I consider it a good thing.  When I was growing up, I fell asleep face down in the bathtub.  When my mom knocked on the door, I didn't answer.  In a panic, she yelled at me and I woke just in time.  I had breathed in a whole bunch of water.  Even as an adult, I know that I could very easily fall asleep in the bath tub if we had one.  I sure do miss a good soak and I know my kids would have loved having bath time, but it is what it is and it is that way to be safe.
     But "bath-time" can be boring here.  We can plug the drain, but it only allows for an inch or so of water before it threatens to flood the bathroom floor.  We do have a removable shower head, so that's not quite so boring.  But we can't really use bubble bath or anything.  So toys are pretty essential.  Without them, I'd have to fight kids to get the kids clean.  Problem is, it means more things taking up space in the shower.  We use baskets, but the baskets take space and we have so much in the shower already between razors, loofahs, soaps, shampoos, etc.
     The obvious solution would be wall storage.  I happen to be a big fan of the hanging mesh bags and have tried them before.  My last one came up missing a suction cup mysteriously, so I haven't had one for a while.  I did keep the bag in case I found the suction cup.  But I think I will throw it away now because I have a new bath toy organizer from MoriBerry. Look at the difference in size:
      So while it would hold small squirt toys, it wouldn't hold barbies to well or bath books, or any other larger toy that the kids would want in the shower.  The Moriberry bag is 13.5"x 17.5" and has been tested to hold up to a pound of toys.  That's a good amount of toys!
     While trying it out, I had a smidge but of trouble getting the suction cups to stay.  However, my tiles do have a very slight ripply texture and that makes any suction cup stick hard.  I feel like these suction cups are as good as any.  When I did get them to stay, they stayed.  I can put things in and take things out and the bag stays.
     I think the squirt toys are cute.  I know that there is always concern about mold growing inside squirt toys, but as long as you suck bleach into them every so often and rinse out well with water, mold doesn't get a chance to grow.  I think these squirters are great toys as long as you take care of them.  We've never had a problem with these type water toys.  As a bonus, the bag is easily dried, washable, and mold resistant, so as not to contaminate the toys.
     Boogie is obsessed with them.  He loves the turtle and the "quack quack" best.  The colors are vivid, the animals are all water-loving animals, the seal has a cute face, the turtle has sweet hearts, and the octopus even has ink on it.  Those type details create great teaching moments.  Did you know that octopi, squid, and cuttlefish all have different colored inks?  So black is fully appropriate for an octopus' ink splat.  Just for future reference.  And in case you aren't full of useless octopus knowledge, Moriberry gives a list of fun bath time activities.
     All-in-all, I love the bag.  I wouldn't mind having a bag like this on all three walls of my shower for different things.  I would use one for loofahs and one for accessories, like our bath visor or rinse cup.  It's a good basic color that will match almost any decor as well.  Hopefully it will last for a long time.
     How do you store bath toys?  Do you keep them in the bath?
