If you’ve spent any time at all around children, you know that it sometimes takes all your persuasive powers as well as overt threats and sometimes physical violence to get them into a bathtub. Unless you got lucky and your kid is one of the few who likes taking a bath. But most of us are not. Which is why there is such a huge market for bathtub toys.

This one, though…I want this for my very own, and the kids are not allowed to use it when they take baths at my house. One of my favourite ways to spend a lazy evening is soaking in a bubble bath with some candles, a good book, some Mozart or Rachmaninoff, and some wine. But there’s always the nervous-making factor of changing a CD or the track on my iPod while I’m up to my neck in water. I love taking baths, but I’d really prefer not electrocuting myself in one.

The iDuck is the solution to the problems of both children and adults. The egg-shaped transmitter will play tunes from any MP3 player with a 3.5mm headphone jack. Just plug in your device and place the transmitter in a safe, dry place (transmission range is up to 10 meters, so it shouldn’t be too much of a challenge to find somewhere). The iDuck itself is waterproof, and goes right in the tub with you. There is a speaker located in the back of its head, and controls on its back so you don’t have to get out of the tub and risk water damage to your device changing tracks. It even plays FM radio if you’d rather listen to that. iDuck requires two AAA batteries (not included).

It just now occurred to me…you could also use this in the pool! Sure, it might get a little far away to hear as it’s made for close-range listening, but it could still work. It would also come in handy if you’re like me and need tunes to wash the car. Really, anything you might want to do around water that requires music could be benefited by the iDuck. And you can make one yours for only $29.99 US.
