Bubble baths are tons of fun and a great way to relax. Every day could be Bubble Bath Day but this Saturday is the official day—a fun day to relax and enjoy the warm and soothing pleasures of a bubble bath. The concept is simple. Fill your bathtub up with bubbles and toys and then jump in and start the fun.

The Pocoyo Bath Fun Traceables, which allow preschoolers to draw pictures and shapes in the bathtub with collectible Pocoyo & friends pop out stencils, figures and washable bath markers. Kids can collect all characters and connect on the bathtub wall for colorful puzzle play during bath time! Assortment includes Pocoyo, Elly, Pato and Loula collectible.
The charming, vibrant and multi award-winning animated preschool series Pocoyo, already an international hit, has been brought to life for American preschoolers!

So by show of hands who loves bubble baths??????? Well in this house all three of us myself, Chad and “Bug” all love our bubble baths although it seems “Bug” and I are usually more likely to take one that Chad but he has been guilty of enjoying one or a few himself :0)!! I know that if “Bug” doesn’t have bubbles in his bath it’s almost impossible to get him to even get in and get washed up so, needless to say I’m very excited about celebrating National Bubble Bath Day on Jan 08, 2011, and I can guarantee that “Bug” and I will most defiantly have our bubble bath on that day for sure!!
So don’t forget to join in a celebrate this coming Saturday January 08, by enjoying a fun and relaxing bubble bath and oh, yeah be sure to get your kiddos involved with their own special bubble bath as well :0)!!!
