Pros: Affordable, BPA-, Phthalate-, Lead-Free, No crevices for icky clean-up, cute colors
My toddler became very interested in the potty around 9 months old, so I decided to get her her own child-sized potty to explore. It fit her well at that age and has continued to suit her as she grows. The wide base provides stability so that the potty does not tip no matter how she climbs onto it, and it has been spill-proof so far. It is lightweight enough that my little girl can lift it herself, which seems to enhance her sense of ownership of the potty--she sometimes likes to carry *her* potty into another room, then proudly to sit down. I think Montessori proponents often like this potty for a reason.
When DD actually has used the potty it has been very easy to wash. Again, it is petite and lightweight, so it is easy to maneuver for whatever cleaning is necessary, and the fact that it is in one piece prevents the sort of messes I hear about with other potties. We're not into any sort of intensive potty learning right now, but when we begin I imagine this potty will travel very well. Most importantly, DD seems really to like it.
