All kids enjoy bath time in the tub and playing with their favorite plastic toys. Well this could be a source of bacteria which can lead to serious health problems. This is particularly a problem when the toys have holes in them.
The water collects in the toy and although it is squeezed out at the end of the bath, not all the water escapes. This moist environment promotes the growth of bacteria. When children suck onto the toys they are taking in the filth from the innards of the toys. Tests done on toys that were thought to be safe showed E.coli and other bacteria.It is recommended that if toys are used, do not get those with holes. Do watch the clip below.
