Polly loves to go to the pool. I love it, too & we should be taking better of advantage of it these last couple weeks before it closes. No, today Polly is playing with this particular floatie when I tell her it's time to get in the tub. She proceeds to put the toy in the bathtub while I am out of the room. So whatever, she can play with it in the tub & of course she kisses it just like anything else. She likes it more as a house toy than a pool toy so I guess we are getting out money's worth out of it. I will not be doing this with any other children, she gets away with too much.
