“ Brand: Safety 1st / Type: Toilet Trainers / Potty Seats „
I've recently bought one of these for my 2 year old daughter, and think it's a really well thought out product, at a reasonable price. Basically you get a lidded seat type potty, which later converts to a toilet seat and step. The seat is padded which must be more comfortable. The seating area is also quite wide - my little girl just would not sit on an old fashioned hard potty but she seems realy comfy on this. The lid is easy to lift even for a toddler. The potty has a removeable pot, which slides out easily for emptying. There is also an electronic 'flush' sound followed by a musical fanfare which is activated by a small handle, my daughter loves this. The potty also came with a pack of reward stickers which I thought was a nice touch. On the downside, I found that the lid easily comes off its hinges. Also wee can leak into the body of the potty - this doesn't always happen I guess its down to the angle of trajectory! But a quick wipe solves this minor irritation.
This is a fabulous 3-1 toilet trainer, I used this when I trying to get my son out of nappies when he was 2 years old. As a potty you can just pull the middle bit out (where your toddler will do their business) and empty the contents, also the middle bit has a raised edge one side which is great for boys (keeps their winkle in side). Once we got past the first stage of potty trainer I tried to put him onto the toilet which I guess for any 2 year old was very scary, I mean what toddler doesn't think that they are going to fall into the toilet. I just took the seat part off the potty and this would rest safely on any standard toilet seat and with the handles my son felt very safe. After my son got over the fear of the toilet and stop using the seat he was then able to go by himself as the bottom part of the potty once tuned upside down is used as a stepping stool. It wasn't that long ago that he stopped using this stool (not for going toilet) but for washing his hands and brushing his teeth. I found this potty better than the oridinary sort you can buy for a few pound as it is bigger and didn't fall over so easily when my son got of it, especially if he had been watching the TV whilst on the potty he would have been there that long the potty would stick to his legs when he stood up (you can imagine what happened next). My 2nd son is only 6 months old so I won't be using it just yet but if potty training was as easy with my first son I will not have any problems using it again.
This potty has a hinged lid and easy-grip handles. It doubles as a two-step step stool to help the child reach the toilet or sink. It has a removable adapter that fits on all standard toilets
