Cocobubble are all about making bathtime fun, with organic ingredients that are safe for even the youngest children. The box was such a treat to receive – as soon as I opened it, a lovely delicate perfume wafted out; a great start! What sets Cocobubble aside from other bath products (as opposed to simply bath toys) is their declared aim is to make bathtime fun and to increase creativity and imagination.
We were sent two lovely packages – the first is the Polar Ice Cap Adventure (£14.50). This includes ‘snow’ soap paint, 3 mini soap penguins, a snowball bath bomb, a really cute little white felt polar bear finger puppet and a real coconut bowl. The penguins can play in the bowl and there are lots of opportunities for imaginative adventures. It all comes prettily packed and ribboned.
The second pack is the Magical Wood Bath Bundle (£12). The key element of this is the Magical Wood Bathtime Adventure waterproof book; join Coco and Bubble in their adventure and act it out using the soap toadstools (3, in pretty pastel colours), 3 fizzy bath bombs and strawberry stream soap paint. It’s lovely for children to read a book in the bath, and it dried out well after I love the soap paint – such a good way to encourage children to wash themselves (after painting themselves and the side of the bath, and the tiles…) and such fun. The scents of all the products are natural – strawberry in this set – and there’s just the right intensity.
Our final treat was a Snowman Colour Change bath bomb (£3.50) – like all the bath bombs, this fizzed beautifully – exciting for children (although I confess this was my treat!) – and left the water feeling soft, with a delicate scent wafting around. But what sets these apart is the fact they all have a special surprise – as the strawberry scented ball fizzed, it revealed another colour.
The products are vegan, handmade in the UK and – a hot topic – all the packaging is recyclable. In the interests of being child skin-friendly, all products are free of parabens, mineral oils, silicones, PEG’s and phthalates – no need for you to check labels, Cocobubble have done it all for you. Rather than using plastic, they use natural products, for example the coconut shell used in the set we received. All Cocobubble’s products will make lovely gifts and the recipients will be thrilled to get something so unusual and such fun. Browse the whole extensive range on the Cocobubble website.
