Cluttered bath tubs are often a problem for households with young children, with toys scattered and grownup shampoo hard to find. The Frog Pod by Boon ($29.99) offers an easy solution. The large bright-green plastic frog has a removable scoop that makes picking up bath toys fun, and drain holes mean the balls and rubber duckies can be rinsed and drained together. A semi-permanent base attaches to any bathroom wall. The scooper is then attached back to the base, keeping it out of reach until the next bath time. The frog’s fingers and toes can be used to hang bath accessories.
