There is a certain amount of sacrifice you need to make as a parent when it comes time to potty train. We have three kids, one is potty trained completely and one is very close.
Pros: + comfy potty seat that separates and can go on a full toilet + flush sound is fun and half the reason my girls love it (though they want it to ACTUALLY flush, they are both aware that nothing happens except the sound) + really looks like a mini toilet + non-colourful nature of the potty is really appreciated; I often get tired of the WAY over coloured kid toys/appliances, this is a nice departure to looking 'normal' + the wipes compartment is great, sometimes wipes don't come out nicely of the independent packages we have near our toilet, it's nice to have something more anchored to pull wipes from
Cons: - other third-party potty seats we have used (specifically the Munchkin white and green one) tend to function better than this one; less fluids on the seat, better fit to the toilet seat
Part of the parent sacrifice is, well, cleaning up after your kids; let's just say that runny stools are very much a thing that just makes me want to puke my guts out, potty training is something you really have to want to do and commit to because sometimes it's not going to be pretty. I would prefer sometimes to just wipe a butt that's been in a diaper as opposed to cleaning out a kid potty; do you rinse this thing in the shower? and then get diarrhea splashed everywhere?
Not a fun conversation...
In any case, if you're willing to take the plunge and start potty training, this can be a helpful implement to kick things off.
Compared to most other potty toilets on the market, this one is very similar to the toilet that they will be using in the future. One of the coolest things about this is the fact that it actually flushes, kind of. It makes the flushing sound which gives the child a familiar sound to look for.
At the top in the tank area there is an easy access spot for wet wipes, or you can even store other things into the tank. The internal pot below the seat is very easy to remove, and is surprisingly simple to clean. You can wipe most of the solid waste out, and then the rest just rinses out.
Overall, I think this is a great starting point. It starts your child off with a familiar experience for when they move to the real thing.
My son is still super short and this potty is just not going to be possible for him to position himself on alone. Many reviews said it was too little for their kids, so I thought we'd be good, but I guess not! I measured it beforehand, but didn't really think of how it would work with the removable potty seat. All in all, it seems fine and we'll keep it around in hope of a growth spurt before he's fully ready to transition. I think the 'splash guard' if you can call it that, is going to be more of a hindrance than anything. The look is nice, sounds are good, cleans and dissemble easy enough. It is pretty light, but doesn't slip around too much. Oh and the wipey holder is also probably useless. It's so small I'll have to just manually stuff some wipes in it.
Its very cute. I like that it resembles a real toilet. If I sit on the toliet she sits on her potty. I dislike that the front piece is not removable. The less expensive version it removes as the girls have an easier time climbing on and off. This version you are stuck with the boy cup attached.
The flush knob is fun, the seat is the perfect height. It is easy to remove the basin to clean, so easy in fact my toddler likes to remove it and attempt to fling the contents into the toilet. So it requires a bit of supervision on our part. I love that the seat can also go on an adult potty and my toddler loves it too. The flushing knob can be a bit distracting and the compartment in the back is always empty as my toddler loves to remove anything I put in there.
Very cute! I love that it's realistic! I do wish it had a sensor to alert you when your little one pees...I can't always tell when mine does because he doesn't alert me or act like he knows he did it and I like to try to cheer for him when he does. I have to make him stand up to see If he did. Haven't had any issues with his pee coming out as some said. It was a little hard for him getting seated on it, but he got the hang of it quickly. Love that it has a wipe compartment!
