Celebrating International Bath Day – Yes, it’s a thing

Celebrating International Bath Day – Yes, it’s a thing.

June 14 is International Bath Day. What? You didn’t know? Don’t worry, neither did I. Until a little package arrived in the post from the fine folks at Yookidoo, prompting a little Google search. So I’ll enlighten you if you’ll let me.

A long long time ago Greek mathematician, scientist and scholar, Archimedes, was taking a little bath. As he lay there it struck him that an object’s volume could be accurately measured by being submerged in water!

Unable to contain his excitement, Archimedes leapt out of the bathtub and ran through the streets of Syracuse, Greece, yelling “Eureka, Eureka!”

And so International Bath Day was born.

Being creators of ingenious kids’ bath toys, this is a day Yookidoo feels pretty strongly about celebrating. Understandably so. And they wanted E to be part of the fun by spoiling him with one of their fabulous Submarine Spray Stations.

 

Yookidoo Spray Station

Now I’m a bit of Yookidoo fan. I’ve blogged about their Flow ‘n Fill Spout and Musical Duck Race toys before. Both of which have given my little water baby endless hours of fun in the bath and the pool, when summer was still upon us.

The weather’s turned recently here in CT though, and the chill in the air certainly has brought with it a little bite that bare skin does not like. This has made getting my little man into the bath somewhat of a battle, especially after a long day at work.

But not on this night. No, on this night my little E unwrapped his Submarines Spray Station. Ran to the bath and would have hopped in fully clothed if I hadn’t been quick enough. Nope on this night, the battle was getting him out of the bath.

Submarine spray station

Just like his other Yookidoo toys, the Submarine Spray Station did not disappoint. The cute little yellow submarine draws up water, which spurts out of a diver shower head. Spraying the water into the funnels creates a chain reaction of spinning eyes and sprinkler effects. It really is awesome.

As predicted, it didn’t take long for E to discover the funnels weren’t the only things he could spray, and so the rest of the bathroom got a bit of a shower too. But bath time’s just not fun without a wet floor at the end of it all, is it?

I can see why Yookidoo celebrates International Bath Day. It’s about learning and discovery and exploration, all the ingredients needed to turn our little ones into budding scientist. Eureka!
