Fisher Price Precious Planet Whale Tub Hi. I'm Erica with babyessential.com and this is the Fisher Price Precious Planet Whale Tub. It's obviously supper cute it looks exactly like a whale and it has the little eyes on the front and it has a fish tail in the back. It also comes with a mini whale which you can use actually washing or you can use it for playing as well. Now in terms with the features of this tub, it comes with this green supports in the back and that's just the shape of the actual tub. But what I like is the green supports really make it stable and you also have this side handles to take it in and out of the sink. And by the way it actually fits in most sink despite of its shape, so you're good to go there. Now in terms of that actual you know feature on how you use the tub, it come kind of 2 ways. First, when you have a smaller baby an infant up to 20 pounds your baby isn't gonna be able to support it's self. So here you have kind of green thumb insert, and this basically keeps your baby from flipping and also provides some support. It also has a baby stopper, which keep your baby from flipping even further. Once your child is able to kind of sit up on its own, actually kind of about 25 pounds or 6 months you can take this baby stopper out. It's a little bit difficult but once you get the hang of taking it in and out its not so bad. You basically just push against the side and lift it right out like this. So now you see, you have a little bit more room for playing and your baby can just lean against this green pad or not. It also comes with a drain plug so you don't have to worry about lifting it out of the sink and having it pull water. You can drain it first and then lift it out and it's very light weight then. This is a great tub but it does have a couple of draw back which I need to mention in all fairness. First of all it doesn't have a built-on padding. So if you're the type of person who likes to keep the tub and the supplies together you can't really do that with this tub. I've seen other tubs and I reviewed other tubs that do have that safety features. So take a look at our website if that's something that you need. The other thing that I want to mention is this tub only comes with only one foam pad. As you can see there is no other foam pad in the tub, and I have again reviewed other tubs there is maybe a foam pad over here and it give you a little bit more options. So you know I do need to point that out. And the final thing, sometimes of you has a new born. It’s very hard to you know bathe a slippery, wiggly indent and I have reviewed other tubs where they have a hummock insert which just make the job that much easier. This tub does not come with any hummock like that. So those are the 3 kind of cons that I did want to point out with you before you go and purchase your tub. So just to do a quicker view of the Fisher Price Precious Planet Whale of a Tub, it has this adorable well design and it comes with a mini whale cup it's actually perforated inside so that the water fall through and you can use it for playing of for washing. It comes with this baby stopper so that when you child is up to 20 pounds is can lean against this foam pad fully supported with the baby stopper and it's very safe for your infant. Once your child reaches 25 pounds so this baby stopper is completely removable and then you have more room to wiggle and play in the tub itself. it also have this side handle so you can lift it in and out of the tub very easily and it also comes with a drain plug so your not lifting it in and out of the tub with a ton of water in it its very light weight. And it also has a couple of cons that I did mention it before, so I just want to mention that again. So that you can take it into account before you purchase this tub. But all in all, I do thinks it’s a really great, cute and affordable tub. My name is Erica with babyessential.com and again this is the Fisher Price Precious Planet Whale of a tub.
