Portable Potties

Simple or Swank: Potties

Moms are always the best at scouting out a bargain. Spending $10 on a training toilet doesn't seem over the top to me, but I did stumble across a cheaper version. Not only does it cost less, but it rivals the competition with just as many bright colors. Either way, these portable potties are great to keep in the car for emergency use.

Simple: The basic $4 Ikea Potty comes in six colors. Unique to their assortment, they offer a black commode for the urban modern tot.
Swank: The well–known brand Baby Bjorn also manufactures six hues of bright plastic potties for youngsters in training. The $10 pot gets you the brand name, a cute teddy bear logo and smoother surface for the tush.

I like the look of them both. However I grabbed the most simplest one from Walmart. The ones with all the decorations and sounds are stupid, a potty is not a toy, and IMO shouldn't be made out to be like one to a child.

The one I prefer is the one you don't have to empty. :sick: We used the kind that snaps into place on the regular toilet.

We used the Bjorn while potty training our son, and I have to say, the extra $6 is WAY worth it. It's super durable and the Ikea one's are nice, but are more flimsey. We used the Bjorn toilet seat that goes on the adult potty for at home and this one for travel (we road trip A LOT). It was perfect, he was happy with it, and it stood up to thousands of miles of road trips, being tossed around in the back of the truck and camper and still has plenty of life left in it. I'm a total IKEA fan, but on this one, I'm voting for Bjorn, durability is something that is more important to me on this.

John and Kate plus 8 use these for their sextuplets... I was wondering where they came up with 6 different colors for each kid!

I have the Bjorn one, I never considered it posh, there are much fancier and pricier options out there. I heard there are some that play music when the kid goes potty. :oy: Anyway, my son has yet to go in it, he thinks it's a very interesting toy and keeps trying to put his feet in it. :rotfl:

I have two Bjorn ones. That flat one you show above, and a more seaty one with a back rest thing. She's only 18 months so toilet training hasn't begun, but it is offered to her before her bath every day. She peed in it once last week, but it was my hubbie's encouragement, I think, because she won't do it for me.
