“ Brand: ASDA / Type: Potty „
Me and my partner are currently in the process of attempting to potty train our two year old daughter. When we started we only had one potty in the house and we found accidents were happening quite frequently. So after a few days we decided to purchase a few more so we could have them dotted around the house.
At 99 pence they were such a cheap price. Because they were so cheap we bought 3 at the time. This seems to be a standard price around most high street supermarkets. I know Morrison's also do them for £1.
The potty itself is a standard design and is basic in shape. It is white all over and is part of Asda's baby range so it has the 'Little Angels' sticker on the front. It is made of hard plastic and has a slightly raised bit on the front and the back presumably to help the child maintain their balance whilst sat down.
In terms of comfort it appears ok. Our child has started using it frequently and has shown no grudges towards using it. The potty does appear smaller than others so you may find they outgrow it quickly but for 99p you can't go wrong. You would hope that by the time they grow out of it anyway they are fully trained and asking to use the toilet instead.
As the potty is small and light it makes it easy to carry around. Our daughter will often carry it around with her. But as well as that, it makes it easy to store one in the car for those emergencies when out and about.
At 99 pence you cannot go wrong with this potty. It is cheap and does the exact job it needs to. This would be a recommended purchase for any parents looking to potty train their child.
We are currently trying to potty train our 2 year old daughter, we had a sit on potty from our eldest daughter but Emily didn't like it so I decided to try a more traditional potty and had a look for one in our local Asda store when I was doing my weekly shop. I was actually really surprised to find that the potty only costs 99p which is fantastic value and I wasn;t too bothered if she didn't like the potty for that price.
This potty is part of the Little Angels range which is Asdas own baby range so this one can only be bought from Asda although obviously you can buy basic potties from many different stores. The potty is made of hard plastic and is a sort of creamy white in colour, it is a sort of oval shape with a bit which comes up between the childs legs and of course the middle is dipped into a pot to collect the childrens output.
The potty came just as it is with no packaging which I think on a lot of products is a complete waste anyway, on this potty at the front there is simply a sticker with the name of the company and a barcode for them to charge you with.
Getting Emily to sit on the potty was actually pretty easy once I bribed her with a sweet since she has a very sweet tooth, once we had managed to get her to sit on the potty we told her that if she used the potty she would get a sweet and suddenly she was trained, amazing what bribery can achieve.
As it has been so easy to get Emily to sit on the potty we have found that she is never really sat on it for any length of time so she never has any red marks from the potty which I know can be an issue from with my elder daughter. Emily is happy to sit on the potty so it can't be uncomfortable and she also loves to carry it around by the carry handle on the back of it so we have to watch and make sure we empty the potty as soon as she has used it.
The potty is easy to empty and there are no spillages from it, it is also really easy to clean too and I have found even though it is really cheap I doesn't really feel like a cheap potty. I would recommend this potty to all who are about to embark on potty training as it is ideal for the job.
When it came to the point of thinking about potty training my daughter I was a little lost on what to look for and what to buy. There seemed to be so many snazzy potties available to purchase, some that sang songs when the child did a wee in them, some with lids, some miniature toilets, the list was endless. In the end I decided to go for the more traditional potty. They are available to buy so cheaply that I could get a couple for the different places we visit often without having to make sure we take a potty everywhere.
One of the more traditional styles of potties I purchased was this one from the Asda Little Angels range. I bought this potty from my local Asda for a measly 99 pence. There wasn't any kind on packaging to the potty, just a simple sticky label on the front with the product information and barcode.
The potty looks exactly like you would expect from a cheap, no frills potty. It has a slightly raised back and a small bit of plastic raised at the front to keep all pee going into the potty. The plastic material the potty is made from isn't the greatest quality as it is quite thin but it isn't flimsy. At the back of the potty there is a hole to use as a handle when emptying the contents. I've found it easy to pour into the toilet without anything spilling anywhere. The potty is easy to clean and after each use I give it a quick rinse out and a wipe over with a wet wipe.
At the start of potty training my daughter used to spend a lot of time sat on the potty and never complained so she couldn't have been uncomfortable otherwise she would have moaned to get off. However, when she did eventually get off the potty she would have a circle imprinted into her bum, this never stayed there long and soon disappeared. My daughter finds the potty easy to carry around, she use to have it in the front room but soon started taking it out to the toilet to use it in there instead. She's pretty much fully potty trained now but we keep the potty in the bathroom as she prefers doing number two's on here for some reason!
I'd definitely recommend this Little Angels potty from Asda if you are after a cheap, basic potty. It doesn't sing, dance or light up like some others but it does do the job perfectly well and at under a pound I don't see any negatives.
