Baby Toys Everywhere!

As James has grown, his collection of regular toys has grown with him.

He still spends time in his play yard, but more and more he wants to be out.  The toys he plays with are in there with him, and when we open the gates they come out with him.  We've managed to continue to confine his things there when he's asleep, and while it isn't exactly organized, the clutter is at bay.

The few toys we do have outside the gated zone sit in a red cloth bin.  It isn't a collapsible one, and has heavy wire creating a solid frame for those things he doesn't play with regularly.  We found it on clearance at Walmart, and for $3 we couldn't say no.  It sits on a shelf within reach, and we can easily get the toys if he seems to need something new.

Now, his bath toys are a different story.

I am afraid of mold.  So, after a bath, every possible surface around the tub and sink where I can set a toy to drain down the drain is occupied.  It makes for interesting positioning when washing your hands if you opt to in that bathroom.  But I don't know what else to do with the toys!

So, here is where you come in!

I need to hear from anyone who has had success with organizing tub toys in a way where things are moldy or icky after a day or two.  He is too small for daily baths, so every other day is about right for timing.

Please, help!
