My son found comfort and security with this chair! (Nov 28, 2008)
Reviewer: Grateful Mom
I love this product! At just under 3 years of age my son was willing to tinkle in the potty but was uncomfortable sitting for a BM. He would demand a pull-up every time he felt the urge to go. That's when we knew we needed to do something, and quick! We didn't want to go backward for goodness sakes! So we purchased this unique step-up chair. The toddler-friendly design provids my son with a way he can independently maneuver into a comfortable position to go potty. The handles are perfect for reassuring him he won't slip when climbing up, and the comfortable padded seat gives him confidence that he won't fall in.
We tried many types of seats and this one is by far the family favorite. Thanks Narmin for making it available on your website!
The best I've found so far (Feb 12, 2009)
I'm now on my 4th one of these seats. They keep cracking and breaking after a while and my daughter is only 2! (I've been using them since she was 18 months.)
Pros: I love how it's padded and folds pretty small. Fits our small toilets at home and elongated ones in public pretty well.
Cons: The plastic joints that hold the sections together on the underside wear out pretty fast. No handles so DD does end up touching the seat sometimes. Keep an eye on the plastic joints. The first seat I had, I was not aware of the problem until it collapsed while my daughter was on the potty. Luckily she was fine, but now I regularly check all the joints.
This is the best traveling potty seat I've found though.
Great while it lasted (Feb 12, 2009)
This seat worked on our vacation. Great. But, the seat didn't last very long. The plastic casing that holds the folding screws cracked - that was the end of the seat. My son was only 29lbs. The seat still looks brand new, probably used it about 10-15 times before it broke. Didn't realize how fragile it was.
Short-term relationship (May 23, 2010)
I just received this product and couldn't wait to try it out.
I was very excited about it being a cushioned seat because that's what my daughter's little bottom is used to, but I quickly realized that it was not going to work for us.
After ONLY ONE USE, I realized that even though I followed the directions to the letter, it was definitely about to crumble under her weight.
So, much to my surprise, I ended up supporting her weight more that usual because I was trying to keep it from breaking.
I do love the concept, however, it is most certainly not the best fit for an elongated toilet and we purchased it especially for trips away from home and most public toilets are designed this way, ...thus, our short-term relationship :0(
Best portable potty seat reducer for any toilet(Made in USA) (Nov 01, 2011)
My 2 yr old DD loved this potty seat
as it is very light but sturdy and I can take it anywhere with me - the best part of this seat is that it really fits perfectly on any kind of toilet - round or elongated and public toilets too...
I have tried few portable potty seats and none of them fit the public toilets and they were not sturdy either(I am talking about cheap portable, foldable plastic seats and foldable cushion seats).
Finally, I found what I was looking for :)
Thank you Bemis for making a great product :)
Daughter won't leave home without it (Aug 18, 2009)
I got this in hopes of encouraging my daughter to use the public restrooms. She loves it so much that she gets upset when I accidently leave it at home. It has helped out so much.
Love them! (Jan 18, 2011)
These are great! Trim, absorbent, and work with just about any pull on waterproof pants. They take a bit of time to dry, but well worth it. Much better than Gerber training pants!
Invaluable (Nov 23, 2008)
I saw the reviews that said this was flimsy and would not last. We have not had that experience. The seat is great and we use it all the time. In fact, it is the only potty seat we use when we travel. My daughter will not go in an adult potty and this allows her to go to the bathroom anywhere. The carrying bag can be washed and makes it discreet when you carry the seat through a restaurant. I am probably going to give this as baby shower gifts! I would not potty train without it.
We love this potty seat (Nov 28, 2008)
This item really worked for my daughter. She is three and it helped speed up her training. She would rather sit on this potty seat. She has a Dora potty seat but she likes this one better. She started asking to go potty on the second day of using it. Before I bought this potty seat she would never ask to go potty.
I will buy a second one to leave at grandmas house.
The Best (Dec 10, 2008)
Best travel potty.. People complain that its flimsy.. Its not going to be the best.. Its a travel potty.. It folds for convenience.. I have a 21mo old who is not the most petite toddler and it works fine for her.. She took right to it.. I had one of the plastic seats that scared her to death to use. So this one was a life saver.. When I have to choose between a plastic seat or a cushy seat this is the obvious answer..
Love it! (Dec 09, 2008)
We had this for my daughter, and actually gave it away. I am now ordering one for my son. Great for scary public restrooms, and the fact that you can stick in your bag, and the carry bag is washable are big pluses. I have recommended this so many times I should get a cut of sales!
no more paint (Feb 12, 2009)
My son was potty traing and always waited till I was busy to tell me. He needed to urinate so bad he was about to go in the spot he was standing in so then he would run to the tolite and go all over his pants the rug and the walls. After i got this he actually started going on his own. Its a life saver or a wall saver.
this thing isn;t going to last long (Dec 10, 2008)
I could tell as soon as I opened the box it wasn't long for this world. Very flimsy. I'm going to use sparingly when we're out only in emergencies because it looks like it could break and let my kid fall into the water. Doesn't fit well over elongated toilet seat.
Great potty seat! (Jan 09, 2009)
I bought this potty seat at my local kmart. It was the only one they had at the time, but I'm glad I bought it. I brought it home and put it on top of the regular toilet seat and it fit perfectly. It does slide a little when my toddler sits on it, but not to the point where you think they will fall in the toilet. It's comfortable and sturdy and my daughter is happy with it. The rubber duckies on it are a plus! I highly recommend this for first time users.
Great when used on recommended style of seats (Jul 12, 2011)
I had this toilet seat adapter for over a year for my big boy (currently weighs 35 lbs.) It worked great and held him well on most styles of public toilet seats, including elongated ones. But, for elongated seats, you must DO AS THE DIRECTIONS RECOMMEND! The adapter must be pushed all the way to the back of the seat, not forward. If you put it forward, it will collapse. My seat lasted over a year with frequent use (4-5 times a week).
cute but impractical (Feb 12, 2009)
We got this potty because it's so cute, but ended up getting another one primarily because this one just doesn't work! The hole was too small for my 20 month old, and the splash guard wouldn't stay up and was too low (a.k.a. my son peed right over the guard).
potty911 is ESSENTIAL for families! (Feb 12, 2009)
We take a potty911 kit with us every time we leave the house. It has proved itself as an essential item when navigating public restrooms. Thank you for the peace of mind!
VERY daughter friendly (Jan 06, 2009)
I bought one of these while potty training my daughter a couple of years ago. It has been a life saver and when we are out, my daughter won't go to the restroom without her potty poncho. I HATE public restrooms, but this has kept her from touching the toilet altogether and when we get home, I just toss it in the wash with a little bleach and we are ready to go again.
Katie loves this video (Dec 11, 2008)
Our daughter is 2.5 yrs and is right in the middle of her training. We are easy going parents and are letting our daughter go at her own pace with gentle prodding. The video is a big help. The music is good and she pays close attention to the whole video. Instructional and intuitive for toddlers. We get a kick out of the video ourselves.
loved the look but not a great potty chair (Dec 10, 2008)
This looked like such a great idea. However, my son couldn't get positioned correctly inside the splash shield and it was a pretty frustrating experience trying to train with this seat.
