When looking for a bathtub suitable for toddlers, the options aren’t as readily available as they are with baby bathtubs. Ideally, you want one that converts from infant tub to toddler tub because no one wants to be making multiple purchases.

Whatever yours may be, we rounded up the top toddler bathtubs of 2013, ranging widely in design, function, and price.
