Editor's Notes

March 22, 2019:

For a huge category with a lot of variety, it seems some of the most reliable toys are the rubberized animals that you don't have to worry about sinking. The ones with openings are a little more dangerous, as water can easily become trapped inside and create a mildew risk like you see in the Disney model at number 4. Really, this comes down to parents keeping their kids' toys clean and dry between uses, but it's important to note the possibility. Toys like the classic rubber ducky are a better bet if that's a concern for you, as it's sealed up and water-tight. Any items with an educational angle, like the musical set from Alex Toys, performed a little better than they might have otherwise, simply because they pose a learning advantage. At the end of the day, though, the adorable and sustainable nature of the Green Toys Rescue Boat was too good to resist.
