Review: Nuby Bathtime Fun Octopus Hoopla

Two In Tow & On The Go Review: Nuby Octopus Hoopla ring toss bathtoy_1

We received an Octopus Hoopla bath toy compliments of Nuby in exchange for our honest review. (For more info on this, see our disclosure). And the verdict is … we love it! Overall, we highly recommend this for bath time since it can be used among siblings or in solo play.

Here are some of the ways we use it:

  • As an actual ring-toss game, which helps gives some early skill learning.
  • As individual pieces to be played with individually.
  • As a toy that siblings can actually share (#winning).

  • This bath toy has long arms for trying out hand at a tossing game! And the tossing game is great for multiple players — I even like playing it from the side of the tub (instead of my other mama game of constantly trying not to get splashed).

  • It’s perfect for younger and older siblings.
  • It has solid construction; no weird bath mold issues here!
  • The little rings that fit on its arms are also fun on their own.

  • My 4-year-old pretends the rings are money and uses them to buy other toys from her brother in pretend play – so cute.
  • There are a few pieces to this toy, which is nice for siblings who struggle to share (like mine!)
  • It has great colors! I like how purple is more of a gender neutral color.
