neti for knee-highs?

Hey mamas out there:

Would you use a neti pot for children (as in 3-year-olds)? 

I got a few product samples of this squishy plastic neti pot and am wondering if other kids would be into it (because mine are like, “yeah right!”) Do your kids use something like this? When did your kids feel comfortable doing it, if they do it…? Mention in your comment if you would like to receive one of the samples and test it out. I know they are popular in many parts of the world and it’s just a familiarity thing, but, wondering how people bridge the gap to give the kids the benefits of it.

I had to google "neti pot," I expected to find that it was another word for a chamber pot, especially in light of the marble issue. I'm glad to say I don't think we have a need for one at our house, but I imagine that the effects would be similar to that of a nasal spray.
Ha! That's hilarious.
My kids are like baby birds with their mouths open to be filled with yummy (yucky) things such as fish oils, "monster slime" (CHIA SEEDS SOAKED IN WATER) and I believe that they would lie there and let me try the Neti pot-I would love to try a sample. Hit me back if you get a chance. Shine ON!!
I once used a water bottle with a sport spout and salt water like a neti to get a pea out of my daughter's nose ;)
