This Water Toy Will Keep Your Kids Entertained for Hours — and It’s Under $40
Outside or inside — this toy is FUN!
When I find a great toy at a great price and my kids love it, I feel like it’s my parental duty to share it with other parents. So, here is our current fav: the Cute Stone Color Changing Sink!
When the weather gets warmer, water play and water toys are always a hit with kids. It’s a great way to keep them cool and honestly, what’s more fun than splashing around in water? However, if you’re not ready to drag out a big water table, get your kids in a bathing suit so they can swim, or you just need an activity that will entertain your kids — this toy will be everyone’s new favorite. Plus, it’s less than $40 on Amazon.
The Cute Stone Color Changing Sink is such a simple idea, but honestly, it leads to hours of play. Just add water to the sink and turn on the faucet, which actually works. Then kids can "wash" the accessories: cups, plates, forks, and a knife with the brush. When kids add the accessories to the water, they change colors. So fun, right? As if this toy wasn’t fun on its own, add a few drops of dish soap for some bubble fun.
My three-year-old has been playing with this sink for a while now and he still gets excited when I bring it out. I’ll fill the sink with water and soap and sit next to him with my computer. He plays and I work — it’s pretty sweet. However, it doesn’t take long for his toy dinosaurs to make their way into the sink. Another way to add some fun to playtime is to add ice cubes into the sink and let your kids melt the ice with warm water. Again such a simple way to have fun with water play.
The sink has spent a lot of time outside and it’s still working, which I find super impressive.
It has over nine thousand reviews on Amazon from other parents who love this toy as well. There are a few things you’ll want to know before your kiddo starts to play. Here are a few tips that will help make having this toy sink even more fun and easier to play with:
- When playtime is done, double-check that the faucet is turned off. Otherwise, you’ll need to stock up on batteries or use rechargeable batteries. My son would turn the faucet on, play with the sink, and walk away only to find the batteries were drained a few hours later or the next day. When the water is low and not running through the faucet, it’s pretty quiet and you won’t realize that it's still turned on.
- When filling the sink, the water has to cover the hole in order for the faucet to pump up the water. If your child is in charge of filling the sink, this won’t be a problem because my son always wants the water filled to the top of the sink.
- Even though this is a great toy to take outside, if it’s a rainy day and your little one can’t take the sink out, they can still enjoy playing with the toy inside. I just lay down a reusable tablecloth and put the sink on top. It’s a great way to catch all of the water that finds its way out of the sink.
Such a simple toy that is super entertaining. Get one for your kids HERE.
