The kidneys act as a filter to remove toxins (harmful materials) from our blood. There are two ureters (one for each kidney) which connect the kidneys to the bladder. Urine passes from the kidney where it is stored temporarily in the bladder. A urethra connects to the bladder and opens on the outside of our bodies, allowing the stored urine to be eliminated when we urinate (pee).
