Need bath toy recommendations

I'm looking for some fun bath toys for my boys. Ours are worn out and I think Santa will be investing in some new ones this year I despise squirters and my youngest still can't help himself when he gets a hold of foam and will chew on it! Bath crayons/markers are out as well, I'm too chicken to try them lol!

I would love to get them something that is vehicles, construction, airplanes, animals (realistic) and/or dinosaur related! Any ideas and links would be appreciated!

I love kitchen utensils for bath toys. Measuring cups, whisks, mixing bowl, spoons, etc.

I like beach/sand toys. Little boats, water/sand wheels, watering cans ect. They are cheap and easy to clean. The kitchen stuff is fun too. I save empty parmeasean cheese shakers, dish soap bottles and stuff like that too.

My mom got us these boats about 3 years ago and they still love them! They don't have any other bath toys.

We have some magnetic boats (that water can't get into, so they can't mold). Those are nice. Can't find them on Amazon now.

I just purchased these for Christmas: they also cannot get full of water:

we also have foam letters, but you said no foam.

and some whistling hippos, which are meh.

I'd like some water drums, but she's too young right now.

We have this penguin toy and both boys play with it. (4 and 1) It recognizes the babies by their number and will ask you to find "baby number 5" and things like that. Plays some music and has a little net to catch the babies with. It was something DS2 really gravitated towards in the store when he had a giftcard to use. It has been a hit ever since!

Mattel makes cars that change colors with warm and cold water. We have the Disney/ Pixar Cars ones and the kids love them! I fill a bowl with ice and set it on my bath book stand thing ( that I never use cause I never get to take a bath anymore, much less read in one!) and they dip, dunk and paint away. Plus, the stand creates a barrier in the center of the tub, preventing the "he's on my side" complaints!
If you think they would enjoy coloring, but you're too afraid of crayons/ paints for the bath, Avon makes great roll on scented soaps for kids that are colored and they're $.50 each usually. They color their bodies and get cleany- clean! They foam up when water is added, and they don't stain the tub or grout like the markers, crayons and paints we used to have. The colors aren't as bold, but I hate the stains of the other stuff. Plus, it's soap, and it helps them wash themselves!

I despise squirters too. My sons favorite are some wooden boats we picked up at a craft fair along with some plastic sea creatures.
