You probably think of the Babycook baby food maker when you think of Beaba. But they're bringing that same innovation to bath time, introducing a collapsible fabric tub. The soft fabric conforms to baby's shape for loads of comfort. (And don't worry; it's mold-resistant.) The frame can even support a showerhead, so filling the tub and rinsing baby is a breeze.

Simplicity reigns supreme in this three-stage tub. But comfort and cuteness are close runners up. A mesh sling cradles baby for the first three months of bathing and can be adjusted to help older babies learn to sit upright. Remove it for toddlerhood and the spacious tub will become the ultimate place to play.

A side drain continuously filters dirty water out while a clean water reservoir lets the good stuff flow in.
