When the signs of potty training readiness begin to emerge in your child, you have an important decision to make: which potty chair? There are plenty of models available on the market, but we recently had the opportunity to review the the Fisher-Price Learn-to-Flush Potty that I think you will all agree is a really unique and fun tool to help us through this sometimes difficult process.
Using M&Ms and stickers is popular way of providing incentive to get your kids to use the potty, but the folks at Fisher Price have come up with another idea: how about some music? The Learn to Flush potty is even more deluxe than our their very popular cheer for me potty. The real fun is in the flushing action. When the child flushes the potty, the tank water feature lights up and pretend water twirls around to a real flushing sound and cheerful yay. Moreover, there are musical ditties and sound effects that reward the child for going in the potty bowl, thus encouraging toilet training. There is a grow with me element as the removable potty ring can be used on the adult toilet as baby grows. There is a built in potty guard and smooth contours for easy cleaning and is just the right height for a potty training child. Finally, the design is styled with realistic colors and shapes and is the perfect gender neutral potty.
Some recent parental reviews say:
(5 Stars: Good for Boys!)
I like this potty because the seat is made well, there no where that a little boy can get pinched. There is enough room for his little bottom and it is a nice height for a just turned 3yr old. The reward system is very encouraging. I laughed at my son’s first expression when he did #1 in it. His face went from shock to awe to giggles. He even did a little dance to the song while he sat on the seat. It was so cute. Now he wants to bring his potty EVERYWHERE! lol.
He was partially trained before on the adult toilet (can do #1 but having a little trouble with the #2 part); as the adult toilet is still too difficult for him to get on and off. Plus I think the big bowl kind of scares him even with a trainer seat on. The other potties I tried were too small or narrow, more designed for girls I think.
So this little potty that looks just like the adult one is much more encouraging. It is sturdy and well made. I am so glad we decided to get it.
As I wrote this little review, he just went all by himself! I can hear the little tune playing and he came to me for a High-Five! Yay! lol.
We are still in the early stages of training with Lily, as she has just recently started showing signs of readiness (letting me know when she has to go, staying dry for 2 + hours) but so far she really does like her potty. She enjoys pushing the button herself to make her music play, and it also has a spot to affix your favorite photo. We have a picture of our dog, which she also loves. Anything we can do to make it a fun and happy experience for her is completely worth it!
