Babble Best Picks: Training PottiesWhen the time comes to potty train - whether that's at 12 months or 3 years - there are dozens and dozens of potty seats to choose from. And while we wish we could tell you what the unequivocal best is, a lot has to do with your child's age, your personal preference, and simple trial and error. Some toddlers prefer the security of a tiny potty seat, while others will step up to the big toilet from the get-go. Some parents don't mind cleaning out a plastic potty, while others gag at the mere thought. That said, we did find top contenders in various categories, whether your main concern is price, aesthetics, or overall performance. Read through to find our favorite potty seats on the market - and don't forget to check out close runners-up in our Readers' Choice section. Don't see your favorite on the list?

READERS’ CHOICE | Hoppop Donut Potty
For those design-conscious moms who are short on space, this Hoppop Donut might be the cutest thing that ever happened to potty training. It might seem impractically tiny for a toddler, but a small 2-year-old fits comfortably on the round seat – although the lack of a large splashguard might make it better for little girls than boys.
If you’re looking for something that has this sleek modern look in a bigger size (read: no squatting required), Hoppop also has a $20 Toro Potty. However, the taller design still has a very small opening that’s more suitable for girls than boys.
