Recently, I purchased this potty stool on Amazon. I have to admit, I was really turned off by the price – $160 bucks (inc. shipping) is way more then I paid for any other potty training item to date. However, my husband and I were so worried about my son getting hurt, that I caved and bought this.
Now for the great things:
- First, it is so easy to set up – only 3 pieces; 1 base and 2 side pieces which slide together like a puzzle. It was so easy that I put it together in 3 seconds – without my husband!
- Second, the potty stool itself is very durable. I was surprised by how heavy it was and am glad because that means no 2 1/2 year old carrying it around the house.
- Third, I love the handrails on each side. This means no falls! My son face planted into the toilet recently (on the two step Graco stool) which resulted in a doctor’s visit.
- And fourth, my son immediately climbed on the wide platform, turned and pulled down his pants, then sat on the potty all by himself. He even smiled! Yay! So, lots of great things about this potty stool.
So far, the only negatives are the price – kind of expensive (however for how heavy it is, I understand the pricing and it is made in the USA) – and that my son’s tip toes touch (not his entire foot). We use the Baby Bjorn potty seat which is higher than most other potty seats so this could be part of the reason why his feet don’t touch all the way.
But being honest, I am so very glad we got this potty stool. I feel comfortable now letting my son have his bathroom door open during the night. I will be recommending this product to everyone!
