3 Claims.
This invention relates broadly to bathtubs and
more particularly to a bathtub designed for use
in bathing infant children.
Brie?y the invention consists‘ in the provision
of a bathtub which may be placed in the usual
bathtub and which is characterized by an in?at
able rim structure whereby provision is made for
causing the tub to ?oat in the water contained in
the usual bathtub or the like.
A further object of the invention is to pro
vide a bathtub» the walls of which are perforated
so that the tub-water will be made use of for
?lling the bathtub of the invention to a suitable
The invention together with its objects and
advantages will be best understood from a study
of the following description taken in connection
with the accompanying drawing wherein:
Figure 1 is a top plan view of the improved
20 tub.
Figure 2 is aside elevational view thereof.
Figure 3 is a fragmentary detail sectional view
through a portion of the tub.
Referring to the drawing by reference numerals
25 it will be seen that the tub indicated generally ‘by
the reference numeral 5 is of suitable dimension
and includes a bottom wall 6, side and end walls
1 and an integral rim 8 at the upper edges of the
walls 1.
The walls 6 and 1 are perforated as at 9.
The rim 8 is tubular in form and at one vend
of the tub said rim is provided with an inflating
valve l0.
At a relatively opposite end of the tub there
35 is formed integral with the rim 8 an in?atable
(Cl. 4-477)
ornament II which latter may simulate, for ex
ample, and as shown, the head and neck of a
duck or the like.
It will thus be seen that with the rim 8 and
ornament ll in?ated, the tub, when placed in 5
water will ?oat, and some of the water in which
the tub- is placed will ?ow through the openings
9 to ?ll the tub to a suitable water level.
Thus a tub having the features of the present
invention may be readily placed in the usual 10
bathtub and will be found especially desirable for
use in bathing infants and young children, the
ornament ll serving as an attraction to the
child being bathed.
Having thus described the invention, what is
claimed as new is:
1. A bathtub having perforated integral bot
tom, side and end walls, and a tubular continuous
rim integral with the upper edges of the side
and end walls, said rim being in?atable and 20
provided at one end with an in?ating valve, and
said walls and rim being formed solely of rubber.
2. A bathtub composed entirely of rubber and‘
comprising perforated bottom, side and end walls,
an in?atable rim integral with the upper edges of
the side and end walls, and an in?atable orna
ment integral with said rim and one end of the
tub and common in?ating means for the rim
and ornament.
3. A bathtub composed entirely of rubber and 30
comprising perforated bottom, side and end walls,
and an integral in?atable rim surrounding said
side and end walls and disposed entirely on the
outer surface of said walls.
