We have a very tall toilet, and were having trouble finding a step stool tall enough for our 3-year-old to use the potty by herself. We bought the Baby Bjorn trainer seat and step stool, but it just wasn't tall or wide enough. The Little Looster seemed perfect. However, we've been disappointed. Though it is a litte taller than the Baby Bjorn step stool, it doesn't feel stable and secure enough. The plastic it's made of is thin and wobbles a little when she steps up, causing her to startle and grab me. There's no rubber on the bottom or on the top like on the Baby Bjorn step stool, so it slides around on our tile floor, again causing my daughter to feel insecure when she's on it.

We've been using it because it's the only thing we have that's tall enough, but I'm looking for something else because my child has been resisting using the potty since we got the Little Looster, and it's derailing the whole potty training process. I need a step stool that has the strength and quality of the Baby Bjorn with the shape and height of the Little Looster.

I don't own the Little Looster, but I did contact the manufacturer to get the dimensions.

The Little Looster is almost 26 inches wide, 19 inches deep, and 8 inches tall.

I am a gadget person. So when I ordered this product I knew it would either be great or it would bomb. My kids immediately took an interest. They loved it from the start. I potty trained my 3 1/2 yr old son and 22 mos. old daughter at the same time. The stool made it so easy for my son to pee standing up and use the potty by himself from the start. My daughter feels confident using the big potty because her feet reach the stool. She is normal height for a 22 mos. old. My husband and I can still use the potty with it in place but it can be a little tricky for me and I am 5'5. But the benefits to my children far outweigh my having to be mindful when I go to sit. I would recommend this product to anybody!!!!

I bought the product from the Company website, but they of course won't let you review it there. LOL!
And I bet I know why: it's not all it's cracked up to be. It's not bad, but it's not a fantastic brain child of an invention. I would have given it a 3 for 'average', but for what I paid, I'm pissed at what I got. It's website purports three things, so I'll focus on those three:

1. "Comfort...No more painful pins-n-needles feeling when little legs are not supported."
I'll give them leg support, yes. My daughter's feet don't dangle. Big whoop. But this thing has no more depth than your average Wal-mart potty stool. Take a close look at the photos. the child's feet cover most of the depth surface area. That means there's STILL no room for the child to feel all that comfortable or safe turning around to sit down. Add to that the fact that some of the depth is lost to the bowl of the toilet seat, when you brace it up against it, and I begin to wonder if these geniuses jumped the gun with this invention, just to pay their own bills. LOL!

2.Confidence...No scary feeling of "falling in." Kids legs do all the work. At what age does this work? My first potty trainer is now more than 2.5YO, and she still grabs on to the toilet seat to brace herself and to turn around to sit down. Maybe that works when they get a little older. I'll hold off on judging too harshly on this one.

3. Cleanliness...No need to grip the back of the toilet seat or the inner, germ covered rim.
Bull crap! As I said in #2, my more than 2.5YO still has to grab the seat to turn around and sit down. This contraption requires balance/coordination that a child at NORMAL STARTING potty training age just doesn't quite have.

I've added my own 4th issue: Like one or two others have stated, the rubber feet on the bottom don't prevent sliding at all! They're laughable at best. Now, when the child steps on it, it does stay in place, but if the child bumps it a little or an adult bumps it a little, it skids just like any other cheap stool. Like any other $5 or $10 stool, you're gonna need a rug underneath it, which adds to the cost of this already overpriced, not-that-great product. LOL!

[...]
As a side note, the only other option out there that's better than this seems to be that $130 Potty Stool by the elite corporation. Maybe a group of parents, who can clearly see what's needed, should just develop one ourselves, sell it for less than theirs and split the profits for our kids' college funds. LOL!

When I wrote a review here in October there was at least three 1 star reviews of this product. Most of them mentioning it was too flimsy or cheap to for the price tag. I too posted my own review and then Little Looster posted a comment on it and even posted my personal email I sent to their company (professional, huh?) while trying to say they did not raise prices. I then posted a comment back to them proving the price raising from $24 to $35 over the span of a few months and then POOF, my review and other 1 star reviews vanished. I have been reviewing on Amazon for years and am a Vine member. I have never seen a review of mine (any 1 to 5 star review) get pulled off the website. My guess is Little Looster is keeping a close eye on their reviews and then reporting 1 star reviews for conduct. Be leery of this company!

HERE IS MY REVIEW I LEFT:

Price keeps increasing?, October 18, 2011
By S. Smith (Maryland)

This review is from: Little Looster's Looster Booster, White (Baby Product)
I have been looking at this debating whether I need it for my 2 year old. This is a piece of plastic and even at $24.99, that was expensive. But over the course of a few months with this on my radar, it has jumped in price from $25 to $30, to now an outrageous $37. Obviously this company believes price gouging on a popular product is an okay thing to do. Don't be the person who overpays for this item or it will only increase MORE in price.

HERE IS PART OF THE COMMENT THEY LEFT TO ME (THE REST AND MY COMMENT BACK AREN'T RECORDED ON MY EMAIL AND GONE OFF AMAZON)

Greetings from Amazon.com Customer Discussions,

This same person sent this concern via email to our corporate contact form...
What is the cause that this product keeps increasing in price although no design changes were made? My MOMS group is floored that you keep raising the price on this product year after year.

This was our response...

Hello Suzanne

Thank you very much for having great interest in our Looster Booster.

I would like to very respectfully clear the air on your belief that we keep raising the price.

We just launched the product almost exactly a year and a half ago at $39.99 exclusively on our website with a shipping charge of $10.95. Since may of 2010 we have brought on a slew of new dealers on Amazon and merchant sites. These prices very quickly starting late last winter went not only to $34.99 but also included...

I actually bought this as part of our potty training system for our 3 year old along with the Pourty Flexi-Fit Toilet Trainer, White/Blue and the Carex Health Brands Toilet Support Rail. The toilet seats in our house are kind of high and my son was having a difficult time transitioning from a stand alone potty to and actual toilet until I put together all 3 to make our 'super big boy potty' contraption. He took to it right away. The stool is stable and secure and has a good amount of surface area for him to rest his feet on. Would recommend

I bought this thinking I had finally found a step stool that my daughter would feel secure climbing. I was disappointed. The idea of it is fantastic, but the execution of the construction is not. Because it's a little on the thin side and hollow it wobbles slightly when standing on it. You wont fall off but my daughter doesn't feel secure because it is not a solid step. We still use ours because it was still the best and biggest one I found. But I wouldn't buy it again. If they can find a way to make it more solid it would be awesome.

I have read reviews that said this would be a great potty stool if only it were improved with rubber grippers on the bottom to keep it from sliding. The one I received today does have bottom rubber grippers, so maybe there is an updated version . . . ? At any rate, this is a good product for the money, especially compared to the absurd prices I've seen for other potty ladders and stools. It's sturdy, fits nicely around the base of my toilet, and it gives my daughter more space to step up and down than the typical step stool.

Got one of these in a yard sale. The person warned me right off the bat that is just shy of being unsafe. It held the weight of their child but wobbled and scared their child. For $1 i said i'd give it a shot. We used this once and i caught my son before he ended up on the floor. So that was the end of that. I did like the design so i took it apart measured made a few tweeks in size for our needs and went to my local hardware store and brought all of $6 worth of wood and made it myself. I might get around to painting it but it works and by the time i do paint it we wont need it anymore.

We have a very inquisitive 18-month old boy who wants to do everything that mommy and daddy do. So after much consideration we decided to try potty training on the big toilet. We bought this stool and the baby bjorn toilet trainer insert. The insert we love, but this stool ended up being more trouble than it was worth. First of all it slides around on our tile floor and doesn't "hug" the toilet base securely. Second it's very narrow or thin, and when he climbs up the stool there's no room for him to turn around and sit on the seat. Eventually it will probably be helpful, once he's a little bigger and more coordinated. But for now we just end up picking him up, and kicking the stool out of the way....UPDATE...son is now 23 months and much more coordinated so stool is working much better for us, still wish it had rubber feet of some kind to keep it from sliding around on the tile, but overall i would probably buy it again.
