Handwashing Fun for Kids with SoapTime

This cute idea will have your children more eager to wash their hands. Professor Goodhabits’ SoapTime makes the time your child spends at the sink more of a learning opportunity while increasing the length and return times for hand washing. The soap bottles fit atop the SoapTime’s SmartBase, which activates LED color changing lights and an educational tidbit or song each time your child pushes down on the bottle to dispense soap. The lights and the length of the educational note or song last for the right amount of time that is needed for your child to thoroughly wash his hands (20 seconds). Each SoapTime bottle fits on this base, so you can purchase a set with just one base and change them out as needed.

The four-piece kit includes a SmartBase with three bottles of soaps shaped like a stack of ABC blocks, an Earth and an Elephant bottle. It costs $16.97. Visit
