Aqueduck Products make it easier for children to use the bathroom sink without help from Mom or Dad.
The company makes a faucet extender that funnels water forward in the sink so little hands can reach the water. Its handle extender attaches to a handle of a double-handle faucet to enable kids to turn it. For safety reasons the handle extender is recommended for use only on the cold-water side.
The faucet extender comes in five colors and sells for $12.99 at www.peachyco.com. It’s expected to be available this month for $19.99. Shipping is extra.
