My 2.5 yo ds has been potty trained for months now, but he still vastly prefers his little potty over the toilet. He'll go on regular toilets when we're out and about just fine, but he prefers to have his feet on the ground, and I can't say I blame him. So I'm looking for a potty stool, that's wide enough that he can straddle the seat enough to not spray every where (he sits to pee), and still have his feet on the ground. I'd also like it to be wide enough that I can use it as a low squat platform. Also preferably not really pricy. Any suggestions?

I think the regular sized bjorn is a great design. My son had poor balance and it took him until almost four to really get comfortable on and off a large potty.
I am looking for one too. My 21 month old wont sit on the cute little wooden one we have :( so I am willling to see if another type works. I don't know which ones are good but I came acrosss this online store which has a liot of potty training things and here is a link to their potty's for boys- I am gonna look at it and see if I can get one.
Bumping this thread to see if there are more responses! I am looking all over the internet for a potty stool- I would like to get one with a lid that looks some what like a regualr toilet- but I am not sure which one - any more ideas?
I'm not sure what you mean by potty stool. Are you wanting a potty chair or a step up to the big potty?
I have the fisher price froggy potty. http://www.pottytrainingconcepts.com/Mat-N1680.html I love it becasue the eyes are tall and no splashing out. My boys love to sit on it becasue it is a frog. It is also super easy to clean.
If you are looking for a step, this wrap around one looks nice. I actually wanted one when I saw it. http://change-diapers.com/2011/08/little-looster-potty-stool-booster-review-giveaway/

He quickly shifted to using the big toilet or, occasionally, a simpler little potty (IKEA) but that Fisher Price one worked well to get him started.
There are a couple other similar ones that look more like real potties:
crunchy-mommy the laugh and learn looks fun- I do think ds would go to one that looks like that, like a real toilet. It seems unavailable at this time in the USA though. I will see if those other ones you suggester look good to me
I like the Ikea one. My 5 year old DD can still use it in a pinch.
