Giveaway – Limited edition Matey bathtime book
Bathtime is a special time for Curly Girl and Little Man. It’s the perfect time to wind-down from a busy day at school or, as it’s half term for us at the moment, a day full of playing and now that Little Man is old enough to sit up in his bath seat they seem to enjoy nothing better than splashing about and squealing at the top of their voices. I LOVE it.
And it seems that I’m not alone. According to some new research commissioned by Matey bubble bath over a third of parents agree that bathtime is the best part of the day.
Interestingly the research also revealed that for nearly a quarter of parents bathtime can also be one of the most stressful moments of their day. I can sympathise – it’s often a battle to get the two of them into the bath on time, but it’s such fun once they’re playing together I can hardly say it’s the most stressful time of my day. These are some of the moments that I cherish actually, the shared fun of being in the water that crosses our age barriers. I’m so glad that they both love the water as much as I do.
Since Curly Girl started school bath time has also become a time for some gentle learning – we’ve got some alphabet letters that stick to the side of the bath for some simple spelling games and I often use the time to read to them both – it’s one of the only times that they’re both in the same place sitting still!

Coincidently Matey bubble bath has produced a limited edition waterproof bathtime book that kids can read to themselves in the bath. The book was written by mum of two; Emma Greaves who won a competition by creating an adventure for the Matey characters – Max Matey, Molly Matey and Peg Leg as a poem. Emma said,
“It’s a dream come true to say I am a published author thanks to Matey. Bathtime was such an important bonding time for me and my children. When the kids were toddlers I always made up games to make bathtime fun – they both loved to make Mohican hairstyles and foamy beards out of the bubbles which they thought was hilarious. I’m very proud to have written the Matey bathtime book – it helps to create an adventure around bathtime and hopefully giving parents a story to tell will be a great way to get children around the country to look forward to and enjoy their bathtime.”
While the book is too advanced for Curly Girl to read to herself – we’re on three letter words at the moment – she loved playing in the bath with it and Little Man loved it even more! It’s a fun addition to their bathtime toys.
