So-So potty chair for us
on October 28, 2013
We also own a Prince Lionheart pottyPOD and a potty seat for the big toilet when we're out and about. My 2 year old son strongly prefers the pottyPOD, which he finds much more comfortable. He will not use this one for #2, and mostly only uses it when he knows he needs to get to the potty quickly and this is the one nearby. He says it is not as comfortable, and he has a tendency to sort of scrunch over when sitting on it. However, I prefer it as there is much less mess--he's never had anything not be totally contained by the potty. It is easy to clean and appropriately sized. I think if this was the only potty we had, he would be ok with it (though I suspect training might have taken longer, as he won't happily sit on this one for long stretches). Also, he usually needs help getting on it. He's just shy of 3' tall and weighs about 28lbs. He doesn't think he can just sit down on this one because of the splash guard (which is what prevents the mess) and waits to be helped. With the PottyPOD he just sits right down and then scoots to the best position.
It does live up to most of the claims -- it doesn't move around, even when he is not sitting calmly; it is easy to clean; the high back is nice (though again, my son seems to scrunch forward when on this potty, which I think has to do with the high back); the design is essentially innocuous and not out of place in an adult bathroom (ours is in the main floor powder room, the only bathroom a guests use, so this is important).
