SoapTime Review and Giveaway

Have you ever told a child that they need to keep washing their hands and they give you this blank stare that says "but mom, I'm done?" That would be the look Isabella gives me when I'm trying to get her to wash her hands longer than 5 seconds. She really thinks you should put the soap on and then put your hands under the water. This is a work in progress in my house. I shudder to think about how hand washing goes at preschool.

I was sent SoapTime to review and giveaway. I liked the design of the soaps, they look so cute!








SoapTime uses a patented multimedia experience to encourage kids to wash their hands for the proper 20 second time. And if you've ever timed yourself washing your hands, you might realize that you don't wash your hands for 20 seconds either. The bottles of soap snap into a smart base that plays different songs and lights up for 20 seconds.

My Opinion

All my kids love SoapTime! They were so excited the first time they saw it light up. The switch to turn on the sound is on the bottom of the base and I had it turned off the first time we used it. I turned it on the second time and Isabella happily sang along to the ABC's. The twins danced to the music while she was washing her hands.

I like that I can tell Isabella to wash her hands until the music and lights stop. I also like that I have the option to turn off the music. There are days when I've had enough noise to last me a lifetime and I don't want to hear anymore noise. (I think every parent can relate to that.) Isabella likes the ABC soap the most because "I like the songs better and it smells like oranges." So far I still need to help Isabella wash her hands. She somehow translated wash your hands longer translated into wash your arms too. But I think this soap is a great tool for little kids since they have no concept of time.

  2. That sounds like such a cool invention! A light or song that tells Kids...I mean ALL of us how long to wash out hands for...totally cool!

    Can I enter and have it sent to my parents in Florida?

    Cheers!
