Undersea Themes Are a Hit with Children

Have you been looking for a fun and colorful theme for a bathroom used by the kids in your family? Well, leave the land behind and think under the sea! Any diver or snorkeler will tell you that some of nature's most colorful creations are the tropical fish that are found in and around the world's coral reefs. Those colorful marine creatures have inspired some perfect bath accessories that will help to make your job easy.

Whether you're decorating for tots, teens, or someone in between, the color and beauty found under the sea is a theme that's sure to please.

You'll find lots of adorable and stylish idear for kids' bathrooms featured right here. Although there are some lovely coordinated sets available, it's also perfectly fine to mix and match a few fun accessories with solid colors and other ocean themed items.

The wastebasket pictured here is just one example, and you see a nice selection of others here, along with a couple of pictures of two of everyone's favorite tropical fishes - the Yellow Tang, and the striped Clown, which kids will recoginze as "Nemo." There's also a video of some stunning Moorish Idols, filmed off the coast of the Maldives.

You'll love the cheerful look and feel that these bath accessories bring into your home, and so will youngsters of all ages, even the young at heartt!

Here' a very inexpensive choice, if you just want to give this theme a try, but don't want to spend a whole lot of hard earned dollars to do so.


These Cuties Make Kids Smile - They're Clownfish


Clownfish, P.D.

Although tropical themes have always been popular for powder rooms, today, with more and more homes giving the children their own bathroom, nautical themes for youngsters are increasingly popular.

Perhaps this is due in part to the wildly successful movie, "Finding Nemo." Children were really taken with the movie, in which the title character is an orange clownfish, like the one on the right in the above picture.

You may be interested to know that, though they are a bit less common, there is also a black striped variety, like the one at the left in the picture.

To see them in the wild, you can choose to go to the Indian Ocean, or Australia's Great Barrier Reef. They don't live in the Atlantic Ocean at all.

Rainbow Fish - Bath Accessories Suitable for All Ages

I think this design line is my favorite! The colors are just lovely, and the 'waves' that have been sculpted into some of the items to give the illusion of water are a very clever idea. The colors are just right for a clean and fresh look, too.

The artwork, which almost has a watercolor feel to it, contributes to making this one of the prettiest sets with a marine theme that I’ve seen lately.

Best of all, when you have a look at some of the items, I’m sure you’ll agree that they are suitable for tweens, teens, or even adults!

This mat is a lovely choice, and will look beautiful on any cvolor floor. That watercolor look that I referenced earlier is quite evident in this particular piece.


A Beloved Aquarium Beauty - Yellow Tang

Yellow-Tang | Source

I've always been a fan of Yellow Tangs, which are popular with aquarium keepers. Since I'm not a keeper of tropical fish, and have never been fortunate enough to snorkle where they live, I've never seen one in the wild. But I sure would like to!

If you introduce one or two into your aquarium, and notice their yellow fading in the evening, don't be alarmed. It will brighten up again in the morning. Yellow Tangs are a brighter hue during the day than they are at night, when they show a brownish color in their middle, together with a white band.

The live around reefs in the shallow parts of the Indian and Pacific Oceans. Many of them are captured off Hawaii, and sold to people for their salt water tanks.

Their cousins, the Blue Tang, live in the Caribbean, and are equally colorful in their own way. I'm happy to have shared the water with quite a few of them on a number of occasions.

Happy Little Sea Creatures - for a Pleasant Bathtime

Here's another selection of items featuring those colorful sea creatures we love to look at. These were definitely (and delightfully) designed with kids in mind. The bright and cheerful colors are just right for making bath time a happy event. The naturally colorful creatures against the blues of the ocean make just the right artistic combination to create a feast for anyone's eyes, but especially those of the young.

The group of items shown here are especially appropriate for a younger child. (For older kids, look above)

These designs are just as cute as can be, and very age appropriate, too. (Isn't that refreshing?) Pick several pieces, just a couple.... or even a nice new shower curtain. All of them are just delightful, and should certainly please little ones.

This is definitely THE statement shower curtain for the boy or girl who is crazy about what goes on beneath the surface of the wide blue ocean.


Moorish Idols - Strikingly Beautiful, Difficult to Keep

Another striking dinizen of tropical seas is the Moorish Idol, named after the Moors, in Africa. (Yes, the same ones who invaded Spain centuries ago.) They thought that a person who saw a group of these stunning striped beauties swimming nearby would soon encounter very happy circumstances.

I don't kow if I believe that or not, but seeing them does make me smile. Maybe that's enough - happienss for the moment. They really are pretty enough to brighten anyone's day, I think.

People often buy them to put in their aquariums, but they are apparently among the more challenging fish for a hobbyist to keep alive in captivity, and few survive long term. I've only seen them in tanks on a few occasions, and they really are quite striking.

      Even before I was a sailor I liked the underwater theme and I would have loved this as a kid! Any kid that has read 20,000 leagues under the sea becomes enchanted with the idea of what's in the ocean.
