In the latest strange product to be aimed at women (remember Gwyneth Paltrow's vagina jade egg) there are now bath trays, designed for the busy and productive woman who multitasks by eating her dinner, reading, drinking coffee and wine whilst she has a bath.


A bathroom tray advert featuring a smiling woman set up with a latte, a glass of wine, a book, and a pot of flowers on a tray sitting neatly on her bath tub has got Twitter sniggering in derision.

The ad comes from RoyalCraft Wood, a company that makes wood products, including bath trays.

Twitter user Sharon Su was one of the first to note the weird ad.

“The people who manufacture bathtub trays seem to have no idea what women actually do in the bath and I find that strangely comforting,” Sharon Su wrote on Twitter.

Su quickly noticed that multiple companies were guilty of having no idea what people - let alone women - did in the bath.

She decided to share all the similar bath tray ads that missed the mark by about 345 miles.

A woman ate salad in the bath

Another had a coffee and an empty case someone joined her for a spot of coffee?

One woman had a cocktail and cereal. Long day?

And also perfume. Because after women bathe in water, they bathe in perfume. Obviously.

This woman stored an entire Whole Foods market on her tray

Waffles and hot dogs whilst watching a stationary ocean view wallpaper on your ipad? Yes please

There's also this one - where the water is optional

Apparently, bath trays for women isn't a new invention

Sigh. Some things belong in the past...

Twitter user Jan Wildeboer took it a step further and made one for himself

Obviously, only 'manly' things belong on this manly tray. Like beer. And Pringles.

Others had logistical concerns

And one woman said she didn't even need the tray
