“ Brand: Tommee Tippee / Type: Toilet Trainers / Potty Seats „
I came across this item when my little girl was potty training. She did really well at home but it was trickier when we were out as often the toilets were too big for her and resulted in her falling down! Obviously this is never a good thing and can knock a girls confidence when she is trying to free herself of nappies.
The product is simply a toilet seat which you place on top of a standard toilet seat and it reduces the size of the hole so your little ones bottom fits perfectly and they don't have to cling on to avoid falling.
The seat folds down into quarters and the pops into a clear thick plastic bag. When folded it only measures a few inches square so can be easily slipped into a handbag or your buggy.
The seat is thick plastic so very durable and provides a sturdy seat for your little one. With it being plastic it also means you can keep it clean and ensure your little ones botty is not subjected to some of the rather grim public toilets which we come across.
My little girl used this seat first time and never complained about using it.
These retail around £10 and can be readily found online or in local Mothercares.
I definitely recommend this to anyone who is potty training and finds themselves away from the comfort of their own toilet.
Last summer, when my then 2 year old was potty training, it came to my attention that she was a bit small for sitting on big toilets when we went out. I lost count of the number of times she fell down the loo! I had remembered seeing a folding seat in a magazine and found it in Blooming Marvellous, but after a few failed attempts to order it from the net, I ended up going to the Tesco website and getting it for £7.99 plus £3 packing. I recently saw the seat in John Lewis but didn't notice the price. The seat is called a toodle Loo seat! My package arrived 3 days later while I was on holiday and it appeared to have disappeared until my mother in law announced that she had a parcel for me! My A5 sized enveloped contained a plastic bag, sort of like what some toys come in now, with a handle which would make it easy to carry. I took the folded seat out of the bag and unfolded it! Then came the test of trying out the loo with it! The seat comes in 4 parts which fold up in different ways but easily that my 2 year old could do it! It was white and made from a very hard plastic! On the top of the seat was a little ridge which was where the bun would sit! The seat did not fit well on to any toilet and eventually I mastered being able to lift my daughter onto the seat, so she could do the loo without the seat moving out of position. She complained at first of it being hard and sore, but we have a soft toilet seat at home so I think she wasn't used to the hard plastic! I found the seat to be off a hard durable plastic and was easily wiped clean if there were any little mishaps! In theory the seat is a fab idea but in practice a child may find it uncomfortable. It doesn't sit in the actual main toilet seat like most big seats do, but for being out and about, it does help a child feel more cofident
about using a different toilet and prevents them falling down the big toilet! The fact that the seat folds easily and fits in it's own little bag which makes it easy to hide in a rucksack or large bag is very convenient! It's very light so you don't even notice that you are carrying it!
Who can live without a Toodle-loo travel fold up toilet seat? This product is brilliant! It's transported folded up into one quarter of it's opened out size. Once opened out you pop it on top of a normal toilet seat and your toddler doesn't have to hold onto the sides to stop him/herself falling in! It covers the standard toilet opening and makes it safe, clean and secure. It's invaluable for public toilets. For Mums on the go it fits neatly into a small bag, and comes with it's own plastic storage pouch. It's the best £6.99 I've spent on kids products!
