Potty Chair Roundup

There are hundreds of potty chair designs in the marketplace. The least expensive option is found in any number of plastic bowl-like potties, but here are a few more robust options which caught my eye.

TOT-CO Toilet TrainerTOT-CO Toilet Trainer
by TOT-CO – Imagine a full toilet bowl and tank replica, only lower to
the ground. It holds a full roll of toilet tissue, a box of wipes fit
in the tank and the seat removes for later use on a your full-size
adult toilet. The only thing this training toilet doesn’t do is flush,
although a 9-volt battery enables suitable auditory feedback. [Multiple product views at One Step Ahead.]

3-in-1 Toilet Training System by The First Years – This potty was developed in consultation with Dr. T. Berry Brazelton, so that made it attention-worthy. It’s a regular potty chair, a reducer seat which works on an adult toilet and a step stool. (I found it at a Target store.)

Royal Potty by Fisher-Price – The curves on this seat are reminiscent of Fisher-Prices’ Healthy Care Booster Seat. However, to call it "royal" is a stretch. The seat’s legs provide a semi-thrown appearance and you hear 8-bit trumpets when deposits are made. The legs are removable, for placing the core seat onto a real porcelain throne when the time comes.

Speedy Bunny potty seatSpeedy Bunny by
Primo – This bunny looks like a rocking horse, and even has handles in
the bunny’s head, but he doesn’t move. He sits there helpless as your
child poops into his body. Poor bunny. [Sorry, I couldn't locate any
retailers selling this product. I wonder why.]

His and Her Majesty’s Thrones by Levels of Discovery – This wooden seat is crafted to look like a miniature thrown, featuring your child’s photo on the back of the seat and a plastic receptacle for receiving deposits to the royal vault.

Hand-painted potty rocking chairs – These stylish rockers have a removable seat which reveals a donation bucket beneath. I couldn’t identify the manufacturer, but the chairs are pretty cool even without the potty angle, coming in themes such as cowboys, prince or princess, Noah’s Ark, jungle animals and frogs.

Update: The potty I eventually bought was the Safety 1st Potty ‘n Step Stool.
It is very similar to The First Years model, but includes a seat lid
and has a two part stepping stool rather than one step. The lid is
helpful in training Little Miss in the practice of opening and closing
a seat lid, rather than after she graduates to an adult toilet. It also
may help contain odor if the potty cannot be cleaned immediately for
whatever reason.
