Fun in the tub is a quintessential right of childhood. Enter the Splashy portable bath seat for kids with disabilities who require head and trunk support. It's designed for children one to eight years old, maximum 66 pounds. Besides the bath and shower, the tub's been tested and approved for use with water-play activities, in the garden and at the beach. At 9 pounds, it's super-portable.
The Splashy is from Firefly by Leckey, the same company behind the genius Upsee mobility device and Scooot and the sponsors of this post. Product designer David Turner has a daughter with special needs who loves baths but had a seat that was bulky, uncomfortable and didn't recline; David had to support her with his arm. So he set out to create a seat for Vida and children like her.
The Splashy is made from EVA foam, a soft material similar to what's used in Crocs, and retails for $399. It has a seat base, a backrest and a base and comes with 4 bumper supports, 2 lateral and 2 shoulder straps, and a groin strap to create a five-point harness or a three-point one. There are 26 recline positions, from upright to full recline. The seat back is 24 inches high x 15 inches wide, and the seat base is 12 inches deep x 14 inches wide.
Colors include blue, green and pink, and you can pick any seat and harness/bumper color combination you'd like. It folds flat for storage, and there's a hook to hang it up. It's not yet covered by insurance, but the Firefly people are working on that. Also! It comes with a rubber duck.
