Top 10 Best Bath Toys to Avoid Sneaky Mold Growth. Keep bathtime free of mold and your child safeLooking for the best bath toys to avoid sneaky mold growth? I bet you’ve had a run-in with a moldy rubber ducky. You’re not alone.

You’ve come to the right place! Never cross paths with another moldy bath toy.

The solution is to prevent the mold from starting. Once your toys get moldy inside, it’s virtually impossible to get rid of the mold. Toss the rubber ducky – you can’t get in there to scrub and clean it out.

Here’s the master list of the top 10 best bath toys to avoid sneaky mold growth.

Munchkin Caterpillar Spillers Stacking Cups

10 Best Bath Toys to Avoid Gross Mold Growth - Munchkin Spillers Stacked


Munchkin Caterpillar Spillers Stacking Cups are a big hit in our house. I love that there are multiple cups, so less fighting over the same toy.

My kids have so much fun with these. They are so much fun to stack, fill with water, and watch the water cascade out the bottom! Each cup is unique. They have different size holes in the bottom of each cup – keeping those little minds guessing.

You can stack the cups together for easy storage. Or teach your little one the concept of biggest to smallest. The bright colors make learning colors fun!

The possibilities are endless. The set is inexpensive and holds up great! Ours are several years old and still look brand new.

I love they are super easy to clean – I have washed them in the top rack of our dishwasher many times.

These are super fun to play! They float in the water and stick to the tub walls when wet. You can spell their name or funny words on the wall too.

White Hot Temperature Duck

Top 10 - Best Bath Toys to Avoid Gross Mold Growth - White Hot Rubber Duck


This is not a typical rubber ducky. There are no holes for water to get inside the duck. That means no mold growth.

This is no home on the underside to squirt water. Instead, here is a small disc that gets white with the words HOT if the water is too hot. How cool is that?

Duckymeter Rubber Duck

The Duckymeter Rubber Duck is another awesome option.


You get a water temperature reading on the rubber ducks back. It’s color coded to make it even easier!


Bonus – Free Bath Toys

If you’d prefer to save a little money and not buy any bath toys. There are a lot of common household items you can use in the tub. Here are some of my favorites:

  • A small plastic watering can
  • Plastic tupperware from your kitchen
  • Measuring Spoons
  • Measuring cups
  • Large plastic ladle and spoons
  • Empty shampoo bottles with the lids on so they can squirt

Any kitchen item that is safe for your child to play with could be loads of fun. It makes them feel like a big kid by using items that are typically off limits.
