Cussons recently sent us through a sachet of their Funky Fizz Bath Crackles from their Little Explorers range to review. Inside the sachet, you get enough greenish bath salt-like crystals for one or two baths, depending on the size of the child and how much water you use.
I poured them into the bath and there was a little puff of colour, followed by a crackle noise reminiscent of the Snap, Crackle and Pop noise when you pour milk over Rice Krispies. This made Pierre giggle excitedly.
He was slightly underwhelmed that the bath water didn't change colour and there were no bubbles, so I added some bubble bath and swished the water around after the bath crackles had finished popping and doing their stuff. They're great fun for the sound effects but could have done with adding some foam or colour to the water.
They might colour the water if you're still using a baby bath but they don't pack enough punch for a full-sized bath.
