20 Bizarro Potty Training Chairs

By ilanawiles |

I live in a modern NYC apartment with limited space. And in general, I prefer my baby gear to be sleek and compact with minimal eyesore potential. So when it came to selecting a potty training chair, I went with a simple, ergonomic model that took up the least amount of space in our bathroom: the Baby Bjorn Smart Potty.

However, my daughter is not that motivated to sit on it, and as a result, we’ve had a few potty training setbacks.

Case in point: A few days ago, Mazzy sat on the potty fully naked. After all of two seconds, before anything happened, she stood up impatiently and put the potty on her head.

Then she surprised herself by peeing on the floor so she quickly sat down to correct her mistake.

Picture my confused, naked daughter sitting on the bathroom floor in a puddle of her own pee with a potty on her head saying …

“Where’s my potty?”

I think if she had one of the ridiculous potties featured below, that probably never would have happened. (I mean, she may have still peed on the floor, but it’s highly unlikely that she could have balanced “Her Majesty’s Throne” on her head.)

    Ok, the “hoppop”s are kinda cool looking. I always wondered how they get the ceramic seatbelt thing on the child in he greek model. Many of these modern potties are beyond ridiculous. And does anyone else see a problem with a potty on ROCKERS?

  2. ilanawiles says:

    Agree on the Hoppop. I probably would have gotten one if I had known they existed a month ago. The pink one would look awesome in my bathroom!

    And yes- I don’t think I would be able to do my business on a rocker, so I can’t imagine it makes it any easier for a kid!

    Those are a little crazy! I got my daughter one that plays a little tune when she goes tinkle. It may seem a little unnecessary, but now that she doesn’t want me in the bathroom with her when she goes, I can at least hear that she does go and know that she’s done so I can help her clean up. One thing mine is missing is a TP holder. That would be a nice feature, but oh well.

    I, too have a tune playing potty for my girls. When my oldest was beginning her potty training, I picked up a very practical potty chair at a yard sale that had a built it step stool for reaching the sink. A couple weeks later, my mother-in-law shows up with a pink princess potty chair that, like I said, plays a little diddy when wet. Needless to say, my practical potty was out the door. My poor younger daughter though, the batteries ran out and I never replaced them. Sorry kid-o.

    It’s really gross that it looks like there’s pee in the bowl of the potty cake.

    Oh Ilana! I just purchased a potty chair and when I went online to look at them I came across many of these, and thought I should write a blog post about how ridiculous they are. Great minds, I guess? (After all that online research, I bought the cheapest one at Target, because that’s how I roll. It looks like a frog. Whatever.)
