Pedalo Bubble-Buddy   (+2)  [vote for, against]
Bathtime pastime

A pedalo pedal with small paddlewheels at either end to be used in the bath. The pedals are perforated and whip up a mountain of frothy bubbles as you bathe and cycle.

Features variable resistance settings for a gentle bathtime work-out with the added incentive of luxurious lather.

Swivel mounted and with strong suction cups on the legs, the Pedalo Bubble-Buddy can be stuck to either the bottom or the side of the bath, whichever you find more comfortable. The frame is height-adjustable for various depths of bath and lengths of leg. The footplates have an exfoliating surface for extra grip and silky-soft feet.

Brings an end to flat baths(!?) and grey scum floating on the surface.

You could vary the paddle size to vary the resistance. Love it.

Could get really messy with all that sloshing around, but a fine idea nonetheless. Messiness would be reduced if the bath was really deep, unlike the *flat* baths mentioned in the idea. +

*Flat* as in *bubbleless*, [saker]. It always makes me sad when all the bubbles are gone.

[squeak] I know, I know, I was just taking the piss... Not in the bath, of course.

I'm picturing the paddles as having hundreds of bubble-making holes. You're going to make a mess with this. I think this is my favorite idea of the week so far. +

Peddled by a swim-suited sales force.

Get a workout, get clean, get a workout, get clean...

I'd some how manage to lose a toe in the thing. But it would look great next to my treadmill shower...and abs-o-steel-potty.

[UB] I wanted another bathtime pastime which involved shooting to compliment this idea. I wanted to call it "Bathlon" but all my ideas for the shooting bit were lame.
