Most Helpful Reviews on the Summer Infant Newborn to Toddler Fold Away Bath Tub.

  • 5.0 out of 5 stars(5/5) – … Reasons why we love it: 1. Easy to set up 2. Easy to store 3. Easy to clean… 7. Doesn’t tip over…. 8. Easy to travel with…. One thing I will say that it is a bit challenging to get the joints from the main rim apart…. (read more and buy it at Amazon.com)
  •  1.0 out of 5 stars(1/5) – …  Like others we found the legs unstable and flimsy. So right there you can forget about actually folding it and storing it because you either can’t get the legs to fold down (like me) or you can but are afraid they’ll snap right off in your hand (my husband). Then there’s the slip n’ slide quality of the rubber…. (read more and buy it at Amazon.com)
  • 5.0 out of 5 stars(5/5) – … I can see how it may be viewed as a little on the flimsy side, but I don’t see it tipping over or collapsing anytime soon, and the child should be supervised at all times anyway as to avoid injury in any type of baby bath…. We also use this type of bath in the big tub because not only is my daughter still overwhelmed by the size of our normal tub, but it also conserves water and saves time by not having to fill up a full size tub for such a small child and the bottom is cushy on these….

  • 3.0 out of 5 stars(3/5) – Works for baby ready to sit up. I bought this for my 7 month old since she outgrew the infant tub and no longer wanted to be in a reclined position for her bath…. We mainly purchased this type of tub because we have VERY limited space and must have something we can put away under the bathroom sink after each use. It does feel a little flimsy when you are setting it up. I wondered if the legs would be stable enough, but if you pop them in correctly, it is totally fine…. (read more and buy it at Babiesrus.com)
  •  2.0 out of 5 stars(2/5) – We registered for this tub and received it. I was excited with the idea that it is so compact and portable, as we don’t have much room in our home. However, that is the only good thing about this tub. It has leaked A LOT every time we have used it, and now the drain plug won’t stay in….  (read more and buy it at Target.com)
  • 1.0 out of 5 stars(1/5) – … It’s a small size tub and if it was made better would have been great to store away between uses, but this one is not worth the price or the quality. Would return the second one I got and get a regular plastic tub where I can see all parts are present…. (read more and buy it at Walmart.com)
