Make Bathtime Fun with Boon - Whale Pod Review and Giveaway

Hi, I'm Jessica I'm a sucker for cute bath products. Body washes that come in cute packages, patterned rubber duckies, thinks that float. things that sink, things with nets... if it goes in the bathtub I probably have it (or really want it). Okay, now that we have that out in the open I have to share my new favorite kids' bath product, The Boon Whale Pod, with you guys.
The Whale Pod collects all of that cutesy stuff that we love to buy for our kids and keeps it in one convenient location. It provides a shelf for shampoos and body washes, a scoop for collecting the toys and the tale & fins are great for holding on to loofahs, scrubbies, and wash cloths! 

What Boon Says about the Whale Pod
  • Removable scoop makes bath time clean-up fun and easy
  • Stores and organizes bath accessories
  • Wall-mounted base with built-in shelf
  • Reduces mold and mildew
  • Mounting options included: adhesive strips and hardware
  • BpA-free, Phthalate-free and PVC-free
  • Recommended age: All ages
  • Dimensions: 16.5" x 9.5" x 6.5"
First of all let me say that Boon has done an excellent job of making the Whale Pod easy to put together! Lately we've been getting baby products that take 15 minutes just to get out of the box. Boon has created an easy to open box where you just open the sides, pull the tabs on the back and your pod is ready to be attached to the wall. 

 There are two options to use to attach you Whale Pod to your shower. The first option is screwing the base directly into the tile (Boon supplies all the necessary screws), or you can use the adhesive strips provided to attach it to the wall. We chose the less perminate option and went with the adhesive strips. After following the directions our pod came with and cleaning our shower our whale was up and ready to go about 15 minutes after he arrived! 
My absolute favorite part of the whale pod is the toy scoop. Before we received our pod I was storing all of our bath toys in a plastic storage container. The problem was if the toys weren't fully dried before going in they would start to get slimey, which meant they were growing mold. Of course I didn't want our babies bathing in mold so we were replacing toys all the time. The whale pod solves this problem by having drainage holes right in the pod. You put all the toys into the scoop, hang it up, and it drains everything for you!

We've had the Whale Pod for a few weeks now and it's still firmly attached to the wall, even with our kids tugging on it and trying to scoop up everything themselves. They're always really excited to clean up their toys now because they get to scoop them up! 

The Boon Whale Pod has an MSRP of $34.99 and comes in three colors - blue, grey, and white.
