Despite how messy bath time can be (every caretaker has their stories!), there is something precious about it and the inevitable giggles and snuggles that follow. (Even if you do have to clean those bath toys later!) Once your kid is finally done playing in the bath and wriggling out of your soapy hands, what better way to keep them warm and dry than with an adorable bath towel?

These 12 kids bath towels combine form and function with cute designs, soft fabrics that are gentle enough for newborns but durable enough for toddlers, and great prices that won’t hurt your budget.
