VTechThe innovative OXO brand has branched off into functional well-designed products for babies and children.  They were one of the most exciting exhibitors at this year’s ABC Kids Expo bringing with them lots of fun new products.  I hadn’t really looked at their line before (other than the nightlights) and I’m really impressed with what I see.

Their Bathing collection features the adorable Whale Pail as well as a tub kneeling mat, drain stopper, bath mat and hamper.

I haven’t featured their Sprout high chair yet but I really like it- especially in this Taupe/Birch color combination.

Where the OXO Tot collection really gets impressive though is their Feeding collection.  They’ve got an entire series of cups, dishes and flatware, baby food making accessories, and storage.

You can get most of these items now from our amazon affiliate link.  The Sprout Chair is available for pre-order ($250) and should ship in December.

Shopping Guide: Rubber Duck Roundup

I really believe that every bathroom needs at least one rubber duck.  (I am actually a recovering rubber duck collector and have a box of duckies in the hall closet!) Find a favorite for your bathroom with this guide.  Maybe I should start finding new homes for my old collection…

First off, Boon Inc., has a cool set of “Odd Ducks.”  These are PVC, phthalate, and BpA free.  Meet Bob, Jane, Slim and Squish!


The Floating Ducks from Kid O are sleek and streamlined.  The mother and baby duck stack and rock together.

Bud has a huge line of Luxury Ducks and you can be sure to find one to match your style… if you can pick just one!

For a while I was obsessed with Rubba Ducks.  They float great and I love that they don’t fill with water.  Not all are made to go into water as some have cloth parts.

You could go kitchy and grab a Celebriduck.  I’m having lots of trouble resisting the James Brown– oh, and the Wizard of Oz character… please help!

Elegant Baby has some colorful duckies.


And finally, if I had to keep just one, Original Rubber Ducks are soft and squishy and squeeky.


And if these examples aren’t enough to inspire a rubber ducky purchase, maybe another ducky lover will convince you…

New Addition: pottyPod from Prince Lionheart

I suppose I must be mentally preparing myself to go through potty training again with the baby.  That might explain why  the newest addition to our collection of modern baby bath items on buymodernbathroom is the pottyPOD from Prince Lionheart.  It is the most expensive potty in the bunch at $45.  This potty features a cushioned seat and anti-Microbial surface.  The height is adjustable and the base has non-slip grip strips so it won’t go sliding across the floor.

New Addition: Green Toys

As Earth Day approaches we all at least have a heightened awareness of all things green and eco-conscious.   I’ve already discussed their toy trucks (which I have added to buymoderntoys), but Green Toys has lots of other fun products made in the USA from recycled plastic milk jugs.

I truly can’t begin to decide which of these products I would choose first!  As a set of first blocks, their BPA, PVS, phthalate free Blocks would make a beautiful gift for only $25.

Green Toys Blocks

The Chef Set, Gardening Kit and Tugboats are also safe and durable playthings.

My boys in particular would LOVE this set of tools.  I love how they are labeled on the handles.  This set retails for $25 as well. (Buy through my amazon affiliate link for $19.)

New Addition: FlexiBath

Finally, as of this month, the FlexiBath is available in the US!  I’ve been waiting to share this one and have just added it to buymodernbathroom.

This hard plastic tub folds flat for storage and weighs just under 3 pounds.  This tub is great if you want to use it after baby can sit up and would save lots of water over filling up the entire tub just for my toddler.  The tub retails for about $40 and can be ordered through my amazon affiliate link.  Right now you can only find it in pink, white and blue, (boring- boo!) but I hope more colors will be available soon.

New Additions: Bath Toys from Hoppop

I’m a big fan now of anything from hoppop so my newest addition to buymodernbathroom is their bath toys.  The first is Pipla– a set of foamy shapes that stick to the wall and tub when they are wet.  Pipla come in two color combinations: the Multi Colors (shown below) and the Trendy Colors (lime, aqua and fuchsia).  You can pick these up from amazon.com for $13.

Triplo is a set of three stackable pouring cups.  Each cup has a unique pour.  These are available for $10 from amazon.com.

Stick these in with Hoppop Bato Bath Tub and you have a killer baby shower gift.

New Addition: Bato bathtub from hoppop

I am very excited to see hoppop’s line of gorgeous bath items available in the US.  It’s so much fun to have new, beautiful, modern items to choose from.  I have already blogged about their potties and will soon share more about their other product offerings, but for now, imagine the fantastic baby shower gift this tub would make filled with bath goodies.   The tub retails for about $50 and is available in three fun colors.  It’s my latest addition to buymodernbathroom.
