My grandchildren, ages two, four and 11 months, love these. They're a must have at bath time or any time. They love playing with these in and / or out of the water! We have 2 sets of them as a result and we recently purchased another set with other Sassy products, to add to baby shower gifts for a friend. A set includes a Whale, Penguin, Blow-fish, Starfish and a Seal. The plastic is nice to the touch, little hands are able hold and keep a grasp on these, my youngest grandson has been able to play with this since he was about 5-6 months. They've also made great "teething" toys for him since they're not "hard". I do not find any problems with the colors. At 11 months we're now trying to teach him how to fill them with water and squirt them. He already enjoys squeezing them underwater to make little bubbles. :) While the baby is learning motor skills playing with these, the older boys are engaging their imagination while playing with these. Each bath-time game/story is different than the last. Since they sort of resemble "real" creatures I believe they're also a good education tools. The Sassy Bath-time Pals Squirt and Float toys make bath time fun, it's the first thing the boys look for when the water starts running in the bath tub! You do need to make sure that they're emptied (all water squeezed out) after each bath time. I also make sure to clean and sanitize each of them often.
