I wanted to get my daughter a potty which was both practical and fun - we have a 'regular' potty, but the most fun (without taking up too much room!) potty I could find was the Fisher Price Ducky 3-in-1 Potty!
**Price and Availability**
The Fisher Price Ducky 3-in-1 Potty is available under £40 from Amazon - now, I bought mine using a £25 off when you spend £50 code which I was sent for joining Amazon Family, so I bought this and a few other items and saved lots. I would shop around, but the average price looks to be about £35. Sounds a lot for a potty I know but this is a great potty with lots of follow on uses (and you can pass it down, too).
The Fisher Price Ducky 3-in-1 Potty is sooo cute. The main body is white with four orange duck feet. When you lift up the lid it has a little duck face with an orange beak!
The potty is used as a regular toddler potty, but it also has a removable seat which you can place into a regular lavatory and use as a toilet training seat when your child is a little older. You can also close the lid of the potty and use it as a stepping stool for getting to the loo and for washing hands. It really does have years of use in it.
**The Magic Bit**
The great thing about the Fisher Price Ducky 3-in-1 Potty is the extra special reward your little one gets for using the potty! It has 2 connectors in the collection cup which when the connection is made (with moisture..!!) plays a little 'hooray' and a tune! My girl loves it and claps her hands when she's used the potty successfully.
**Clean Up Operation**
Clean up is a doddle. The unit itself is styled in durable plastic so it's easy to wipe down and when the potty is used all you need to do is lift out the orange collection cup and pour into the loo. You can rinse it out when you flush.
The Fisher Price Ducky 3-in-1 Potty might seem a bit more expensive than your average potty but it has loads of uses and my daughter absolutely loves it. I give it 4/5, its a great potty :)
We bought our daughter this potty as she refused point blank to sit on a normal potty. This potty was really eye-catching, which is what drew our daughter to it. It looks a lot more like a normal toilet, with it's white rim and toilet lid. Its orange and white colouring stands out straight away.
The Fisher-Price potty is quite expensive for a potty, but we were willing to pay more if it would help to get my eldest daughter potty trained. At £32.99 from Argos, it is one of the most expensive pottys available- but they can be picked up a lot cheaper if you look on ebay etc.
The bottom of the lid has a picture of a ducks head on it. The potty is stood on four orange ducks feet. It can also be used as a stool for the next stage if the lid is down.
The potty has a base which you can remove to clean. There is also a removable splash guard at the front especially for boys, which is attached by a small white hinge.
The potty measurements are:
H 35.5 W36 D21cm
My daughter used this fine the first time I got it out. It doesn't look as intimidating as your average potty. It's also great as it rewards the children with a tune when they do something in the potty. It plays one of four tunes each time, although my daughter gets upset sometimes as if she doesn't do a big wee then it doesn't seem to play anything.
The other negative about this potty is that kids can just take it to pieces-then it's not ready when they need it. If you rush putting it together and don't slot the removable base into exactly the right part, then it doesn't play anything either. Also, the on/off switch doesn't say on/off so it's easy to forget if it is turned on or not.
I would still buy this potty again as my daughter is really happy to sit on it, where she wouldn't on an ordinary one. I've tried sitting on it myself and it is so much more comfortable
