Sesame Street Fizzy Tub Colors


Need a way to make bath-time fun and educational for your kids? Fizzy Tub Colors may be what you need.

There are a lot of kid’s bath products for making bath time more fun. One I recently purchased was Sesame Street Fizzy Tub Colors. They are little tabs that you put in your child’s bath water to turn the water the color of your choice. They are fragrance-free. I got 24 tabs or 2.5 oz. for about $5.50 at CVS. They also come in different sized containers and can be purchased online or at Walmart, Target, etc.

The tabs come in 3 colors, blue, red, and yellow. The tab that creates red in the water, actually looks purple in the container (see photo below.) However, I used one and it does come out very red. If you want purple water you have to mix a red and blue tab. In case you forgot about color mixing, there is a little guide on the back of the container.


My 3-year-old son loves these. He thinks it’s “so cool” that his water is colored. Not only does he love watching the tabs dissolve, but he is learning about mixing colors. These tub colors are actually a great educational tool. My son now knows that blue and yellow make green. Plus, the packaging is cute and your child will get excited as soon as they see Elmo.

I think Sesame Street Fizzy Tub Colors are worth buying if you have a toddler or preschooler. They could be a little brighter, but if it bothers you just throw an extra tab in the water. I would recommend trying to find a bigger container to purchase. Some websites and stores sell 100 tabs, 10 oz. for $12-$15, which is a better value than the one I purchased. $12 for 50-100 baths isn’t bad.


I didn’t have any problems with these staining my son’s skin or my bath tub. My bath tub is yellow, so I can’t be positive of what it does to a white tub. However, the color isn’t that concentrated in these. They don’t make the water THAT bright so I don’t believe they stain.

Does it stain the tub or child’s skin or just run right out?
