Making hand washing a fun activity so that kids do it more by allowing them to wash away the soap until a skeleton appears from inside: Cool. Using animals that don’t have skeletons so that kids are confused about science: Not Cool. Skeleton Soap encourages kids to wash their hands by slowly revealing a skeleton inside of the soap body. Sadly, crabs (Colin the Crab) have exoskeletons (which would make for some pretty useless Skeleton Soap) and octopi (Olivia the Octopus) don’t have skeletons at all, which sort of defeats the purpose of the soap all together. If you’re going to get this for a child in your life, just make sure you go with Freddie the Fish, as cleanliness is important, but biology lasts a lifetime.
