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 donâ€™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) donâ€™t have skeletons at all, which sort of defeats the purpose of the soap all together. If youâ€™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.
