When your baby or toddler needs a bath, give them something to cherish and enjoy. The Melissa & Doug Bathtime Friend Wayne is the perfect bath time companion, with a sewn-on hat covering his bangs. He even comes with his own rubber ducky to play with in the tub! Wayne's interactive design means you'll be nurturing constructive play and cognitive skills.
And given Wayne's sturdy structure, your child can have him join for bath time over and over again. But after he's been air dried, the mud spots will reappear, which means it's time for Wayne -- and your baby -- to have fun in the tub and get clean once more.
