They are a great aid when potty training, helping toddlers to see the steps and the correct behavior from the doll. Then you can let the child teach the doll to go potty, sometimes teaching is the best way to learn.

What is Drink-and-Wet:
Drink-and-Wet potty dolls are designed to be feed (drink water) and release the water out at a different end. The reason for using this type of potty doll: doll demonstrates the appropriate behavior, the child can also feel in control by teaching the doll the learned behavior and the doll can be used if a parent of the opposite sex is teaching the child. These dolls are great for potty training autistic children, because they have no way to imagine themselves as the doll (such as you would when using a pretend doll) this shows them visually and can be used by other care givers.
