Itâ€™s Potty Time! A training toilet that transforms and grows with the child.
Research Problem #1 Children find toilets to be scary and uninviting. “If the child is scared of the toilet, they will be less likely to go to the bathroom, making potty training difficult” Problem #2 There are many existing products that aim to solve this problem, but they also create other problems such as: short product life, complex function, and they require many different products for one action- training seat and step stool.
The age to begin potty training is different for every child. But average age a child is ready is between 18 and 32 months. Signs of that readiness include being able to follow simple instructions, wanting dirty diapers to be changed, and being interested in “big kid underwear.” It takes 3 to 12 months from the start of training to daytime toilet independence. The more ready a child is, the quicker the process. More than 80% of children experience setbacks in toilet training.
Once the child becomes comfortable using the training potty, the seat can be transferred to the toilet and the rest of the potty can be used as a step stool.
It can also be used in other various places in the bathroom like a step stool for the sink for tooth brushing, and the bowl can be removed, and the inside of the potty can be used as a place of storage.
Final Model The Tot Potty reduces the need for other products in the bathroom and also has a longer product life than most toilet training potties.
Good for the start of Potty Training...
...and the End.
