I have binned loads of the dcs bath toys but an still left with stacking cups, squirty frogs etc that they love so I can't get rid of. But I am sick of net bags with suckers that constantly fall down, and I'm sick of the consequent toy detritus in the bath every time I take a shower. So what's the storage miracle for wet bath toys that I'm lacking please?!

Drill some holes in the bottom of a flexible trug? Then leave in the bath when not being used?

B&m have metal storage baskets that suction to the wall - they are only about £3 , we have two corner ones they fit loads in and havnt fell off in the 3 months we ve had them, despite dd3 leaning on them to get her toys

We've got 2 wicker baskets with lids - heated floor in the bathroom so they dry out but think they'd be ok on any floor if they're well drained?

I used to keep one of those little plastic steps in the bath. It was stored upside down with all the toys in it. When it was bath time, I'd take the step out and use it to sit on next to the bath.
If an adult was having a bath, we'd just stick it in the sink for a bit.

I have a net with suckers, but it is hung on the shower rail with a hook. No more clattering of bath toys in the middle of the night as the suckers un-pop!

We did have a frog that (supposedly) scooped up all the bath toys then stuck to the wall. It did stick but we had too many toys and the wall went mouldy behind where it was stored (nice!).

We now have a quite nice silver plastic basket - about a4 size - easy for toys to dry & for kids to see what they have.

Ikea do a white thing you can sit on.

Here it is. This is what we have and it's worked really well. Much better than nets with suckers.

I have one of these for our shower. It holds about 6 bottles of shampoo/ shower gel etc. ikea stuvik

We have some of the hooks in the same range in the kids bathroom. They hold this variera bin thing it holds loads and hasn't fallen off yet. smile

We use a plastic basket thing from the pound shop, works really well after many other mouldy nets etc!

We changed our bath panel for one that allows you to store stuff in the dead space under the bath. Cleaning products in my case but toys would work too. Just a couple of panels fixed with magnets that easily come away or fix back.
Just google bath panel storage and a range should come up.

Munchkin do a white bath scoop storage: there's a hook that you adhere to the tiles above the bath, and it scoops them up then hooks on to store. It's got drainage in. Not enormous but it's pretty tidy and so far the hook thing works well. Sold in Tesco and TK Maxx.

I have a large plastic kitchen jug my mother gave me and have no culinary use for, just dump the lot into the bath to play with, doesn't take too long to put away.

I use a plastic collander from the pound shop which works really well...

I bought the oxo tot whale pail which just scoops up the toys and suckers to wall. I love it after having everything mouldy, and you can rinse off the toys in it as its got little drainage holes in bottom. Not the cheapest think it was around £20 from Amazon but it's worth it imo.

Big standard plastic storage basket here...

A netted laundry bag from amazon. It is great, I hang it from the shower. The string is quite long but you can easily tie a knot in it so it doesn't sit on the floor of the bath. It holds heaps!

I have one of these although paid less than that at Habitat 10yrs ago grin

I simply move the whole thing onto the windowsill when I want a bath and then back again for DC's. Good as it drains water away and doesn't get stinky/gungy

I have one of these here

I've had it for about 7?years now and it's great, fairly unobtrusive and still looks fine after all this time.
