Alex Toys Bathtime Fun Water Flutes

The Alex Toys Water Flutes help little ones discover musical notes and sounds while in the tub. The five included flutes can be filled with different amounts of water to create different tones. Little ones can follow along with the instructions to learn simple songs such as "It's Raining It's Pouring and "Mary Had a Little Lamb.”

How’s It Played?

Tune the water flutes by dunking them underwater and filling until they reach the right level designated for each note. The squares and circles on each flute signify notes that can be followed with the included song sheets. To drain, just push the bottom cap up and twist. Hang the flutes in the holder and let them dry until the next musical bath performance.

Includes Waterproof Song Sheets

The Alex Toys Water Flutes come with waterproof song sheets that can be stuck to the bath or tub wall. Songs include “It’s Raining It’s Pouring,” “Mary Had a Little Lamb,” “Ode to Joy,” “Old McDonald Had a Farm,” and “The Itsy Bitsy Spider.” All song instructions are great for children and easy to follow.

Safe Toy for Children

Recommended for children 3-years of age and older, this toy is both a safe and fun way to make sure you child enjoys bath time. The flutes are made of non-toxic foam and can also be used outside of the bath to foster musical skills anytime water is around.

My son is almost 3 and he LOVES these flutes (he calls them "whistles").

SOUND: Honestly, the sound is not as annoying as the average recorder or whistle (though the higher pitches become correspondingly, well, shriller).

HOW THEY WORK: The note each of these instruments plays is based on how much water is in the flute, which means that if you're doing this with a three year old you need to help them carefully fill these flutes to the right level (and you're probably not going to be playing the included songs right away). I think this is actually great educational value--practice letters with little kids, talk about the relationship between the water level and the sound as the child gets older, including scales, etc.) but if you're hoping your kid is going to play ("properly") with this toy on his or her own at 3 or 4, you might be disappointed.

PROBLEM--DRINKING THE BATH WATER: I would actually suggest parents with younger children consider playing with these outside of the bathtub (maybe with a deep bowl of water for filling the flutes?). I say this because if your kid tips the flute back (that is, instead of holding it in "recorder" position, he chooses "trumpet" position) water will pour into his mouth. Since the bath water is not the cleanest, I'm not thrilled about that. Ditto if you're thinking of using them in a pool. Obviously, it's good to teach your kids the proper way to hold these instruments, but still, preschool age kids are always going to be tipping them back some of the time, even by accident.

Anyway, in short, I think these are really fun toys, and I'll definitely be buying them for friends!

These are marketed toward younger children, but my 9 yr. old loves them. She's quite impressed now playing Mary Had a Little Lamb by memory :) You can keep all the flutes together in the holder or take them apart if you have more than one child.

I will warn that after a while you get sick of hearing the kids playing the same songs over and over and over again, but they're happy so just wear some earplugs.

My daughter loves being in the tub, so naturally, we looked at the Alex products and bought quite a few. The flutes do not stay in the blue foam holder at all, and they slip, so they will not stay at the same level either. My daughter can use the flutes individually, which does not help when you want to do a song. If the holder was a snap-in holder, it would be a better product. My husband is going to try and rig something up.

My 1 and 5 year old received this for Christmas this past year. We've owned it for almost 10 months.

At first, I was worried about the water getting gross staying inside the flutes, but it is fairly simple to just put them into the basket upside down, and the bottom screws a drain open so they can air out.

They do tend to leak slowly - so they do not hold their tone for a long time.

Filling them up is easy, but getting them to the right level is sometimes tricky - especially if the toddler wants to hold the toy.

I'm not even sure where the blue holder is ... they won't stay in the holder. This makes it hard to play a tune, as you cannot hold onto 5 at once with little hands.

My older boy does enjoy the musical aspect of them, but mostly he uses them to fill and watch the water drip out. However, one of my nephew's likes to play with them when he is over, he has figured out they make different sounds with the level of the water. He has a "scientific" curiosity.

I think this would be better used as a teaching tool than a bath tub toy ... and since I homeschool, I look forward to using it for our science unit on sound later this year - I expect this will cause J to do a lot of further experimenting when we return them to the tub.

They appear quite durable, and have held up to being stepped on (by the kids) and banged on the side of the tub. They have, so far, always cleaned up really well, they do not smell bad, and the colored markings are not washing off.

The colors are bright, and my 1 yo likes to talk about the colors and watch the water go in and out of the tubes.

The sheets of music stick nicely to our garden tub walls - but my kids really don't use them, they just sit in the basket.

This is my child's favorite new bath toy. He is three and easily figured out how to use them and tries every night to "make music". GREAT bath toy.

Cute toy and idea. However, the foam flute holder does NOT work well. With water in them making them heavier and a wet/slippery foam, the flutes do not stay in place. They slip down and/or out of the foam holder all together. Still, my 2 year old enjoys using them one at a time. As she gets older, it would be neat to be able to use the music cards to play a song...IF the flutes could stay in place. Educationally, even my 2 year old realizes they sound different with various levels of water in each flute. She'll add water, remove it, etc. to see how the sound changes. A nice idea would be to add a edge so it's more evident to younger ages where their mouth should stop in order to blow into the flutes. It's more difficult for a younger child to know they can't cover the top hole or the sound won't come out. A stronger holder, and the lip alteration would simply expand the target age group.
