Little plastic rain cloud has an opening on top and several smaller ones on the bottom. It opens from the side to allow for cleaning.
Dimensions: 3.6 X 2.9 X 2.75 inches
The toy works with simple manipulation of air pressure. Hold the cloud under water to let it fill. Raise the cloud back up to watch gentle streams flow from the bottom. Touch a finger to the single hole in the top to stop the water.
Not much to say about this toy, really. It’s a cute way of getting kids to have water poured over their heads, which is a kind of blessing in of itself. Perfect for rinsing soap and shampoo, this charming little toy can help make bath time more fun for children afraid of having water on their faces.
We are very, very happy about finding a bath toy that opens up. A small mechanism on the side pops the toy open, allowing for a thorough cleaning.
We’ve heard some users, as well as some retailers, trying to pass this toy off as being an early lesson in physics. That’s a bit of a reach. We firmly believe in the need for children to learn through self-driven exploration and hands-on experience. However, having an adult give explanation is not only a faster way of understanding what’s happening with the water, but is also a great way to spend some quality time together. So while we may not call this toy an ‘early lesson in physics,’ we do call it a great opportunity to talk about air pressure or weather systems.
