When my son became old enough to transition from his baby bathtub to the regular bathtub I was very concerned about safety. I wanted to make sure that I had the tub environment set up in a way that would be as safe as possible. One of the first things I noticed was the large metal faucet. It’s hard not to imagine the damage that this faucet could do to a little one. Immediately I realized that this could be quite dangerous, especially with all of the fun and playing that goes on, and I set out to find a product to cover the faucet.
It did not take me very long to find exactly what I was looking for. The Skip Hop Bath Spout Cover is a great addition to any bathtub that is going to be used by a little one who likes to play! Let’s face it, bathtubs are slippery and toddlers don’t realize that a solid faucet may be looming above their head when standing up. This is definitely a product to remember once your baby is old enough to move around and stand up in the tub.
The Moby is a cute and friendly whale that is designed to easily place over the spout in your bathtub. There is an adjustable strap that is attached to the fin of the whale that allows for a snug fit on most bathtub faucets. I have seen some people mention that it does not stay in place if the faucet lacks the shower diverter, but I cannot speak to that since my faucet has a shower diverter. I’ve had no problems with my son being able to take the spout cover off. As far as I know, he hasn’t tried, but I don’t think he’d have any luck if he wanted to remove it.
The whale is constructed out of soft rubber that is BPA free, phthalate free, and PVC free. I’ve had this product on my faucet for over two years and it has held up extremely well. Besides being made out of safe materials, the Moby spout cover is mold and mildew resistant and is dishwasher safe. Skip Hop wasn’t lying when they said their product is mold and mildew resistant. I just checked my Moby faucet cover and there isn’t any mold or mildew, which after over two years of daily use says a lot about the product!
The blowhole on the whale allows for convenient access to the shower diverter and the tail can function as a hook so that you can hang it in the tub when not being used. We keep the spout cover on all the time since the tub is only used for giving our kids their bath, but it’s easy to hang within your shower if others will be using the tub and want the option of removing.
Now that I have the Moby it’s nice knowing that my super active toddler won’t seriously injure himself on the facet while playing in the bath. My daughter just started taking her baths in the big tub and I’m glad that the tub is safe and ready for her to have fun. I’m really glad that I found this product and think this is a great purchase to consider for all homes with active babies and toddlers!
