Babymoov Frog Bath Mat by BABYMOOV
We have been using this anti-slip bath mat every night for about a year and it continues to perform well with minimal care or attention.

We remove the mat each night (when we remember) and hang it over the side of the bath to air out and prevent mildew from taking root. This strategy, with occasional outdoor airing, has been enough kept the mat in great order. It still sticks easily to the bath floor and doesn't slide around once attached.

The temperature guide still works, not that we ever paid much attention to it since judge the temperature ourselves, but it serves as a good warning if I have the taps badly adjusted mid-pour.

My boy, almost 2, enjoys this simple toy very much.

He is still too young to work the key and lock properly, though he tries to, so he will grow into the toy even more. From the high build quality of this toy I expect it will last an age, so he will have plenty of time to master it.

In the meantime he will often spend 10 to 15 minutes happily (and quietly) inserting blocks into the correct holes, and experimenting with other blocks and toys to see what will or won't fit.
