We spoke to these real parent testers to get their review...

How did this product make your life easier?

Lucy Hetherington says: This product is excellent as an option for families once their child grows out of the typical baby bath. I imagine it would be particularly useful for families who don't have a bath in their houses or who want to save water by avoiding running a full bath for a small toddler. It fit on our shower tray which made draining the water afterwards very easy.

Gemma Hogg says: I would definitely recommend the Shnuggle Toddler Bath to fellow mums who don’t have a bath. Showering a toddler can be a tricky, wet and potentially dangerous thing to do, so a product that fits in most shower trays, allowing your child to sit in the water and enjoy a ‘proper’ bath is the perfect solution.

Edrianna Lansiquot says: This product makes my life easier as a mum because I feel totally comfortable turning my back for 1 second to reach for the bar of soap because with the bum support I know the baby is steady and safe. The strong plastic material also makes me feel safe as the baby is not strong enough to tip the bath over and is it not at risk of causing injury to themselves.

Would you recommend this product to other parents?

Kimberley Larham says: I would recommend it to a mum for a non bath solution for toddlers. It’s definitely good quality and stood the test of my 11 month old standing in it and rocking it side to side. It’s easy to clean and really easy to use. I like the cushion at the back...didn’t feel like it got as cold as the plastic did. It’s a good size so if I had this when she was younger I would feel confident that if she slipped down whilst sitting she would have been safe.

Sarah Larner says: I would recommend this product to other parents because of how easy it is to fill up and to get the child in and out of and the safety of the product. It’s simple to put in the bath or shower and to fill up to the fill line and get your baby in and out of. While my baby was in the bath I felt like it was safe for her to be in.

Amy Lloyd says: I would recommend to mums who are looking for the next size up from a baby bath. As we do not have a bath ourselves I really wanted to find something for my boy to be able to have a splash in with a few toys so was really happy to have been introduced to the toddler Schnuggle bath. The maximum fill line also lets you know when the bath is full enough to put your toddler in so the water doesn't overflow when it's ready. It's so easy to clean and also looks stylish in the bathroom.

Would you choose this product above all others on the market?

Danika Lloyd says: I would choose this product over others on the market because it is great value and great quality. It is robust without being too heavy or clunky and is very cleverly ergonomically designed to be comfortable for for a toddler or preschooler to sit in. I would never have considered a bath like this for a toddler but I am definitely converted.

Lucy Hetherington says: The main positive features were the plug which makes drainage much easier, the comfortable back rest. The design is sleek. The colours chosen are very plain and neutral but that to me is ok for a bath. The main downside is that it is large to store and not very transportable. That to me would mean that I would rather just use our normal bath for my toddler but if someone specifically needed a toddler bath I think this would be a great choice.

Gemma Hogg says: I don’t think this product is for everyone – we have a bath and therefore I don’t see a need to use a toddler bath. But, as outlined above, if you only have a shower then this product would be a lifesaver to any mums of toddlers. It’s a nice design, lightweight and practical. Saying that, if you had space to store it (it’s quite big) it would save plenty of water rather than filling a whole bath for a small child each day.

What changes would you make to this product?

Edrianna Lansiquot says: The product could be a shorter length to improve the design and to make it easier to carry and store in the bathroom. A shorter length would help it to look more neat and tidy in the bathroom along with other bathroom products. Also if the product was able to change colour when it touches the water to signify hot or cold spots it would be good.

Kimberley Larham says: I think the advertising should probably be changed. It’s a great solution for the transition from baby bath to full bath which I was really nervous about but didn’t know about this product. I also think it could be advertised as a solution for the shower....maybe a picture of it in the shower. Also add a handle to the back of it, like just a cut out in the back to make it easier to carry.

Sarah Larner says: If I could change one thing about this product I think it would be the grips on the bottom of the bath. I was slightly worried that the bath would tip. My baby stands up a lot while in the bath and I was worried she may stand up in this bath and hold on to the side and it tip over. It hasn’t done but the grips don’t look very stable. Maybe suckers would work better?
