For some children -- and by extension, their parents -- bath time is a chore. American Standard's new FunBath tub conversion is designed to make bath time more enjoyable.
This bath conversion kit fits over an existing standard 60-inch bathtub to make bath time safer, more comfortable and even uses less water.
“Until now, child baths were little more than no frills plastic tubs designed primarily for infants without thought of toddlers or preschoolers,” says Rob Buete, vice president and general manager of the American Standard Safety Tubs division. “This conversion transforms a standard tub into a breathtaking children's bath that will be enjoyed for many years.”
Easy installation gives parents the freedom to bathe their children in comfort, while eliminating common bathroom hazards such as slips and falls, as well as injuries to parents caused by stooping and lifting little ones over a traditional bathtub.
The kid-friendly acrylic tub deck fits atop a strong powder-coated aluminum frame that is concealed by a decorative apron front. Parents can decorate the FunBath with removable wall decals from RoomMates®, featuring popular children’s characters: Little Mermaid, SpongeBob SquarePants, Elmo, and Lightning McQueen. In addition, both a fire truck, and princess castle front are available for the FunBath.
There are no plumbing additions required because the FunBath ties into existing plumbing with little effort and can be removed without damage to the existing tub, according to the manufacturer.
