What Does This Nana Know That You Don’t?

If you are a Nana too, you’ll appreciate this story.

We are two Moms with twins, and we’re older Moms who now should be Grandmoms, but we decided to have children a little later in life.  Like all busy working Moms, we quickly experienced the joys and the “Uh Ohs” of bath time. When our twins grew into very curious and VERY active toddlers, the evening ritual of fun, suds and giggles always ended with water all over the bathroom floor.  We instinctively began to brainstorm an innovative solution. Our brainstorming soon turned into concept sketches, a business plan, and the Tubby Table was born.

The Tubby Table makes the perfect gift!

It gives kids a play surface in the middle of the tub, allowing the water to flow back into the tub instead of all over the floor.  We integrated multi-colored and numbered shape cups to help reinforce key fine motor, cognitive and developmental skills. It also allows for siblings to play together and share their toys.

Parents have called our idea “ingenious”.  Grandparents love giving a toy that’s original. Here’s what’s NEW to our design concept in the 2015 Tubby Table.

  • There are three play areas on the table:
    1. A new water wheel attaches on the same section in which children can also build using their preschool building blocks
    2. Four numbered, colored and shaped cups are smaller for those toddler fingers to grasp and then fill and pour water
    3. The middle section is now a free play area OR parents can purchase one of the three Tubby Buddy’s, activity mats with toys that fit into this section.  There is a zoo animal activity mat with 4 colorful zoo animals, and a race car mat with 4 different race cars, and a drawing mat with bath crayons.
  • The suction cup is super strong to holds the table firmly in place
  • Now the Tubby Table folds for easy storage.

The New Tubby Table has an adjustable leg to raise the table top up or down depending on the height of the child, And Grandparents are some of our best customers because the Tubby Table is perfect gift. It’s unique and priced right so many buy one for their house and one as a gift for their grandchild’s house.

Tubby Table Toys is also proud to be honored with the Creative Child Award, National Parenting Center Seal of ApprovalPAL ( Speech, Language, Creative Play ) Award, Tillywig Brain Child Award, Green Scene Mom Award, and Inventor-of –the-Year Finalist.


Editor’s note: As an experienced grandmom, I can tell you the Tubby Table makes bath time a breeze and a grand gift for new parents. Order two, so you have one at grandma’s house too!
