What can you do with suction cup toys?

You probably have a suction cup in the bathroom to hang something, like your shampoo bottles.

Most likely you also have more than enough toys at home for the kids.

But do you already have a suction cup toy at home?

We should all know what suction cups and toys are, but their combination makes it an interesting discovery for your kids.

A suction cup ensures that you can place these toys somewhere stable, so that your child can play with them for as long as they want.

This could be on a dining chair, on the wall near a bathtub or any other place where your child is and they are ideal for water play or for traveling.

Why are suction cup toys so much fun?

You recognize it, your child who wants your attention every second of the day.

Children have a talent for always doing something that sometimes makes you wonder how the hell they got there ...

If you don't look for a moment, they have already put something in their mouth, which 9 out of 10 times is inedible and can even be dangerous.

Or they bumped themselves into something again. First you hear the slap, then the crying starts and before you know it you are comforting your child again.

When you give them a normal toy, they always find a way to get your attention back.

They throw it on the ground every few seconds, you have to pick it up for them and then this happens about 100 times.

And if you don't pick it up, they will naturally start crying again.

All this can change with a suction cup toy!

You stick these toys near your child and he or she will be sweet for a long time. Your child cannot throw these toys on the floor every second.

Children can try to analyze and figure out the toys long enough.

Suction cup toys are so much fun for them, because everything is attached to it and because the toys also stay put!

As a parent you can finally cook, work or do some other simple thing in peace, which is probably almost never possible.

Finally a little rest!

Unfortunately, I cannot promise complete rest, but with a suction cup toy you can at least get a lot more rest.

As a parent, of course, you appreciate every bit of rest you can get ... It can all be tough for a parent at times.

The most important thing is that the children are healthy and happy, but sometimes you also want a little bit of rest.

Suction cup toys can finally give you some rest and that sounds like a dream come true!

Have you ever heard of these toys before or do you have friends who already have these toys at home?

Ask around and test it out I would say.
