Nuby Squid Squirter Review


I love being a Nuby Mommy Blogger.  We just received our new box last week and I am so excited about all of our new bath toys!  Stay tuned for my upcoming reviews which will include Squid Squirter, Foam Bath Letters and Numbers, Splish Splash bath time stacking cups, Foam Bath Animals and the Sea Scooper!  Oh, and there will be an awesome giveaway with one of them :).

Meet Squid Squirter

 D (who is 3 1/2) learned how Squid worked rather quickly.

She was able to fill him up under water no problem.

And of course, make him Squirt!

 E was a tad bit excited to have Squirt join our family.

 E (who is almost 2) enjoyed Squirt as well.  She has not mastered the art of filling up Squirt yet but I think it won't be long.  She is able to get water into him on her own, just not completely fill him.

I was so impressed with how much power that the Nuby Squid Squirter had that we decided to have a little experiment.  The kids and Squirt and I went outside and determined how far he could indeed squirt.

 
E had fallen asleep so D was up first!

 At the starting line

And go...

D was able to shoot water out of Squid Squirter that went 9 feet!

C's turn - result 23 feet!

B's turn - 21 feet!

 A's turn - 35 feet!

Now, that is power!  This got me thinking, Squid Squirter not only works for bath time fun but he would also make a fabulous pool toy!

My thoughts:  Nuby Squid Squirter is colorful and fun.  My kids were engaged and entertained with him.  Squid Squirter definitely helps bath time become fun time.  I would be aware that Squid really squirts - as our experiment above shows!  You may need to direct your children where the best spots in your bathroom are to squirt him or you could have a bit of a mess.  Younger children may need a bit of assistance filling up the chamber with water and pushing down the handle but it won't be long before they have it completely figured out.

According to Nuby
18+ Months
- Great way to make bath time fun.
- Hold the Squid under water and pull the handle back until the chamber is filled with water.  Then push down on the handle and watch the water squirt everywhere.
- Encourages development and play.
- BPA FREE
