Review: Flexibath

The very nice people at Flexibath have sent me their bath product to review. Here is what I thought of it.

First impressions are great. The Flexibath comes with very minimal packaging which I love, just a very thin layer of shrink wrap to keep the dirt off it and a cardboard information sleeve wrapped around it. Very eco friendly. The bath looked a lot smaller than I expected as it does from 0-4 years and I really thought there was no chance that Logan would fit in it as he is a big boy at 14 months old. Well I was wrong! Once I had opened the bath and put the water in it there was more than enough room for Logan to splash around and play with his toys. He thought it was great and so did I, saved a lot of water by using the Flexibath instead of our own big bath.

We were sent the lovely purple Flexibath which I think can be used for a boy or a girl, a nice unisex colour. The bath is easy to open and close and is held together, when closed, by a little plastic clip. The only thing that concerns me about the clip is that it might snap off in time! If you're using it quite a lot and bending it back and forwards it might cause the plastic to become weak.

I really feel this bath is great if you are travelling with a child and staying in places which do not have a bath. For example caravans and some big chain hotels do not have baths, only showers and my little boy likes his baths. The water just gets in his face and annoys him if he goes in the shower beside me.

Some little facts about the Flexibath now. It is 66.5cm in Length, 38.9cm wide, 23.8cm tall, approx 1300g in weight and can hold up to 39ltr of water. It is made from Polypropylene (PP) and Thermoplastic Elastomeric (TPE). Both types of raw materials are free from PVC, phthalates, heavy metals and other harmful or hazardous materials. Flexibath is a safe, clean and environmentally responsible product.

This bath is easy to dry as well. I just left it to air dry in our own bath and the next morning it was dry and ready to use for the next night. I cleaned it using only fairy liquid and water so that I didn't damaged the materials it is made of.

You can only use water, children's soap and shampoo in the bath as baby oil and other liquids may damage the soft plastic (TPE). This is a shame as Logan has very dry skin so needs a certain bath product from the doctors to use in his bath but I am not sure if I should use it in the Flexibath incase I damage it!

You can purchase the Flexibath for around £29.95 and stockist include Mothercare, JoJo Maman Bebe, Amazon, Kiddicare.com and many more.

Overall I think this is a great product, easily stored and can last up until your child is 4 years old. Great value for money really.

Logan's rating - 10/10
Mummies rating - 9/10
