>Boon Splat and Water Bugs Review & A Giveaway

>

A few months ago, I signed up to take part in the Boon Blogger Program.  They were very quick to respond and after a few emails we decided I’d review the Splat and Water Bugs toys.  Well, Boon was fine with shipping but for some odd reason, there are frequently times when mail gets stuck in postal-limbo and my Boon package was stuck in limbo for a while.  Thankfully its been here a few weeks now and the kids have all been enjoying their new tub toys.  
The Water Bugs are simple, fun, and neutral.  When I say simple, I mean the design is just simple, straightforward.  Kids can pick it up and just enjoy, no learning curve.  I love the shape and design of the cute little bugs (I’ve not ever said “cute little bugs” that I can remember, before!?) and how easy it is for little hands to grasp them.  The bright, neutral colors make this a great fit for any tub- regardless of having boys or girls or a mix of boys and girls in your house.  We’ve had a lot of fishing style games for the tub and unfortunately, none of them have ever worked well and the kids get frustrated.  I feel like the Water Bugs toy is a good toy that lets the kids feel like they are fishing and can be successful.  
The other toy we checked out is called Splat.  Think ring toss for the tub.  One of my favorite things about this toy is that the floating post is shaped like a splat.  Its just a fun, whimsical design feature, but I like it a lot.  Like the Water Bugs, the colors of the Splat toy are bright and neutral.  My kids adore this game, and my husband and I often try to beat them.  (I don’t share tub pics of my kiddos, so just stock photos for this review, sorry!).  Sometimes we win but mostly, the kids do.  They get more practice at it, in our defense!  
There are 2 big reasons why I like Boon products so much.  The first?  They are safe for kids.  Safe for adults.  We’ve all heard by know about how bad BPA is for us!!  The second reason is that Boon gives back by giving 10% of their profits to charities that support children in need.  
Now, Boon makes far more than just a few cute tub toys that are easy to store and care for.  Am I going to tell you about all of them?  I could, but since the nice folks at Boon have offered to send one of my awesome readers a Splat of their own, I think I’ll save my thoughts and wait to see what you guys think is neat….
