The Stand and Play Bathtub

Q: What is the biggest concern when bathing babies?
Answer: Injuries from Slips, Trips and Falls
Slips and falls are the #1 cause of ER visits for babies.
Bathtub stands are more dangerous than most people realize.
Low baby bathtub walls are trip hazards.
Parents must keep babies seated...
which means bending, kneeling and lots of splashing water!
Restraining babies opposes their play...
inhibits learning bath competency and...
forfeits an amazing developmental opportunity.

Stage 3: Stand and Play

From 12 to 24 months,
when your baby can sit confidently, it’s time to Stand and Play!

There’s nothing like the freedom of the Stand and Play bathtub. 

It’s safe and stable because
of the weight of the water in wide tub. Now you don’t have to worry about nasty falls and always trying to sit your child down.

Push, roll, strengthen and smile.

Stage One has the perfect incline and shape for moving between lying on the back, rolling to the side or even tummy-time.

Natural movements build strength through the neck, shoulders and core. This all helps your baby develop head control.

“We like that he feels free in the tub.
He likes to move and play and push.”

The Stand and Play Bathtub

From new-born to toddler, the Stand and Play Bathtub adapts as your baby grows.

It’s the best and only bath you will need. 

We’ve solved The Big Problem of bathing active babies and toddlers:

  1. Slips and falls are the #1 cause of ER visits for babies. 
  2. Bathtub stands are far more dangerous than most people realize. 
  3. Traditional baby bathtub wall heights are dangerously low trip hazards
  4. Parents must keep babies seated which means more bending and kneeling. 
  5. Restraining babies opposes their need for play, and inhibits bath competency. 

The Stand and Play bath is tested to US (ASTM F2670-17),
French (XP S54-044) and European (EN 17072) Safety Standards.

Stage One: Move Freely

0 to 6 months

On the back, side or tummy!

Stage One gives you and your baby the freedom to move between lying on the back, rolling to the side or tummy. 

Turning your baby in the bath is a natural way to introduce movements that build strength through the neck, shoulders and core.

Stage Two: Learning to Sit

6 to 12 months

Let’s wobble in the water!

Sitting up requires learning how to balance and that means wobbling. Regular experiences in water build on what is learned on the floor. Better balance helps when they’re ready for walking, reaching, running and later: gymnastics, bike riding, skating, skateboarding and surfing!  

Traditional products (transats, ringseats, tubs with leg wells, bum-bumps and crotch stops) either prop or force reclination which delays learning how to balance.

The floor is soft and the walls are supportive and easy to hold.”

Leigh, mother of two

Stage Three: 

Stand and Play

12 months to 2+ years

Convenient, Stable and Safe

  • No bending or kneeling! 
  • Stay out of the splash zone.
  • No worrying about scary falls.
  • Let your baby do their thing: sit, stand, walk, bend over, pick up and throw objects, PLAY!

“She really loves playing in the bath and this lets her play more independently.”

Lindsey, mother of Elodie



Falls are by far the leading cause of injuries to babies. Adult bathtubs and showers, with slippery, hard and curved surfaces are especially dangerous for babies who are learning to balance, sit and stand. Babies’ heads are 3X the relative size of adults. This makes the job of sitting and standing even more challenging.

Traditional baby bath designs present slipping, tipping and tripping hazards to a standing baby. This means parents must be constantly vigilant and prevent babies from standing and falling. 

  • The Stage Three attachment eliminates trip hazards inherent in baby tubs with dangerously low wall heights.
  • The Stand and Play Bathtub is stable with widely spaced supports to prevent tipping. 
  • The floor is elevated and flexible. It gives to absorb the energy of a fall. 
  • Slip hazard is minimized because floor surfaces are flat without wells, bumps and slopes.
  • Hold points are firm and sized for babies hands. Unlike popular inflatable and foldable tubs with flimsy walls, ours inspires confidence to a baby reaching for support.
  • The drains are free of entrapment hazards so you can use them plugged for a bath or open like a shower.

Falls are the leading cause of injury for babies and young children.
