I just got back from Dani's Duds (a big children's consignment sale) and I got a playskool potty for $2! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/thumb.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="thumbs up"> As I’m looking this thing over I’m thinking “nice size, just like a baby bjorn, ooohh the top comes off for easy cleaning! Hmmm what’s this little metal circle that has something that looks like a note in it?” I try pressing the circle and nothing happens so I figure it must be a bull’s-eye for little boys or something.<br><br>
So I get it home and as soon as Trinity wakes up from her nap we give it a try. Score! She poos on the first attempt! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/banana.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="banana"> She sits a while longer after the poo to make sure that she’s done then all of the sudden I hear the tune “London Bride is falling down”. She peed and that made the potty start to play! She thought it was the coolest thing, she started wiggling and doing her little wobbly-baby-dance to the music. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/blueman.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="blueman"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/jammin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="jammin"> When she was done I took the potty apart to dump and rinse and the whole time it’s still singing. Ok, so now I’m getting a little annoyed – how do I shut this silly thing off? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/confused.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Confused">: Then I rinse it out with super hot water and it stops. So I think oh good! I set it down and go put a new diaper on the baby.<br><br>
As I’m diapering her it starts to sing again! So I figure it’s heat activated or something and as the temperature of the potty cooled down from the hot water, it reached whatever temp sets the thing off. Anyway, I thought I’d try running it under some cold water to shut it up but it kept playing!!!!!!!!! At this point I’m like AARRRGG! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/Cuss.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="cuss"> So I bang the back of it with my hand and finally shuts up!<br><br>
Does anyone else have a singing Playskool potty? What’s the proper way to shut this thing off? Do I sprinkle it with Holy water and make the sign of the cross? “Keep thee BEHIND me demon potty!” <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/demon.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="demon"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/FIREdevil.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="devil">

I believe you've got yourself a "Tinkle Tunes" potty. Some mommas think they are fabulous, others have coated the metal dealy with clear nailpolish to tame the beast <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

As a woman who recently watched her husband take a hammer to a singing toothbrush, I don't feel that I can advise.

I think those things <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/whistling.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="whistle"> have to be completely dry to shut up :ignore<br><br>
So if drying it with a towel does not suffice, maybe a hairdryer does the trick? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/idea.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="idea">
