When my daughter was smaller, we used a foldaway travel infant tub, but now that she's nearly a year old she needed something larger. My son helped pick out this bath and shower center; he was very excited about the shower feature. We LOVED the bath and shower! Baby Girl laughed and played and didn't want out! The tub is roomy, and Baby can keep her feet and legs submerged so she won't get cold too quickly. It's sturdy and stable. The shower is a really cool idea - it does take a lot of batteries and there's a learning curve with getting the pump to lock into the lid of the basin properly, but it provides a nice gentle spray and the basin collapses for easy storage. It holds the perfect amount of water to rinse baby's hair and torso after washing. Plus, my daughter loved the sound of the motor; it would make her laugh. We used the tub and shower about four or five times, always setting the shower hose, pump and basin out to dry completely afterward. The last time I tried to use it, the pump wouldn't turn on. Turns out it had filled with water and ruined the batteries. I tried letting it dry out completely and using it again, but it's toast. I think it has to do with the difficulty in locking that pump into the lid of the water basin. It doesn't ever seem like it's locked in place, even when it is, so it's easy to get wrong. The on/off button is right on the top of the pump, and if it isn't locked in correctly and you push the button, it will push the whole thing down into the water. Unfortunately, it appears now that it's also not water-tight. I am currently contacting the manufacturer to see if anything can be done, but for now I'd give it four stars. Great product, great idea - small error in design that I wish I'd known how to work around. If you're careful with that pump, this is a wonderful bath tub!
