The Bath Boat

The Bath Boat is a toy that aims to reduce the amount of water used during children’s bath times.

With the National Health Service recommending that parents bathe their child every day, and most parents running a bath of approximately 70–75 litres (a half-full tub), the UK could be wasting as much as 200 million litres per day. The Bath Boat is a toy that operates like a water gate, slotting into the bathtub to reduce its size. This enables the baby plenty of space to get clean and play, while preserving a large portion of water that would otherwise be wasted. The Bath Boat introduces children to the importance of water conservation through play, encouraging new habits for consumption as they grow older.
