What happened to simple bathtub slides? | #wheniwasakid #retro
My kids are really missing out.
Growing up, I remember, even though we moved several times, almost all of our bathtubs has slides on the back.
You know what I’m talking about! Where you rest your back on the tub, there was just enough slant that, as a child, you could put your rear at the top, and slide down it splashing water everywhere? Sure, we got in boatloads of trouble for doing it, but it was so much fun!
Now, all the bathtubs that I’ve used in my married life, have all had straight backs, unless it was a larger garden tub, and even then, there wasn’t enough slant to make it fun!
They’re so scarce that I can’t even find a plain bathtub with that much of a slanted back on it in Google images! They’re all these new fancy tubs that seem like they’d be too scary to slid down!
This on might be a little much!! Haha!
