All little girls love to feel like the princess they are, and why not? After all, they only have these few short years where the idea seems as possible as anything else in this world. When it comes time for your little princess to say good-bye to the diapers and start using the “throne,” the transition can be made easier with the use of a potty chair that is designed to appeal to her interests. Kids respond well to things that are designed with them in mind, and what little girl doesn’t imagine she’s a princess?
If you have a little princess of your own that has begun to show signs of potty training readiness, a princess-designed potty chair may help with potty training. These girlie potty systems aren’t as popular as many if the unisex systems, but for some girls, they are worth it. Let’s look at two popular models by Fisher Price and Disney.
Fisher Price Princess Potty
The most obvious feature of the Fisher Price Princess Potty and Stepstool would have to be the design and appearance itself. Constructed from thick, durable plastic that is pretty in pink, this potty is sure to get your little one’s attention. The back of the potty has a molded crown built into the lid with adorable purple accents on each of the points. The lid can be closed when the potty seat is removed for quick conversion to step stool mode.
The seat portion of the Fisher Price Princess Potty has a built in sensor that rewards your child’s success with musical melodies. A unique feature about this musical reward that is unfound in other musical potties is that it follows the potty seat to the big toilet. Most musical potties have a reward sensor in the removable bowl so the sound doesn’t continue when transitioning to the big toilet, but the Princess Potty keeps the rewards coming no matter which configuration you are using. 3 AA batteries is all it takes to keep the music going.
This potty is easy to use as both a potty chair and a toilet trainer for the large toilet. When in potty mode, parents will enjoy hassle free clean up with the removable bowl that wipes clean with soap and water. When in toilet mode and in potty mode alike, the seat makes things easy on your little princess with side handles for balance and support. Since the seat does continue to reward successful attempts no matter where it’s at, it can be a wonderful tool to keep accidents at bay when traveling or visiting relatives; just take the seat with you to use on the grown-up toilet, wherever that toilet might be!
For those mothers of little boys who may be thinking just now what a wonderful potty training tool you will be missing out on, take heart. Fisher Price makes a Royal Potty with all of the same features as the Princess Potty, but designed in blue for your little prince. This potty also comes with a deflector shield, an absolute must for potty training little boys.
As with any potty chair, much of your child’s success will depend on her readiness for potty training and her personality. As lovely as this potty chair is, if your little one isn’t quite ready to train then there is no forcing the issue. When she is ready, however, the Fisher Price Princess Potty with Stepstool will be there to encourage her every step of the way.
Disney Princess Potty Chair
Facts are facts: if a child isn’t interested in something they aren’t going to be receptive to it. If your little girl isn’t interested in using a plain old potty seat, then she isn’t going to, period. The Disney Princess 3-in-1 Potty System is something she won’t ignore, however. The pretty princess styling invites your child to try the potty in the first place. Designed to look like a “real” princess potty chair, this system features fun colors and graphics that make your child want to use it over and over again.
There will come a time when your little princess is ready to move on from her potty to the big one. When this time comes, she doesn’t have to say good-bye to her beloved chair just yet. Simply repurpose it! The potty seat is designed to become a trainer seat for the full sized toilet when the small potty is no longer needed. Trainer seats help a child feel more comfortable on a full sized toilet; she’ll be less fearful of falling in, and because she’s used the seat for so long she won’t feel like it’s too big of a change and revert.
The base of the princess potty chair is also designed to remain useful past the toilet training period. It converts to a sturdy stepstool for your child to use to get up on the family toilet or to use at the sink for hand washing. Such versatility really helps parents get the most out of their money, so you can feel better about this little indulgence in the best potty chair for your child. After all, if it helps her succeed then it is worth it!
The princess potty chair is also convenient for mom or dad. The part of the potty designed for the waste lifts out for easy emptying and cleaning. Simply wash the pot out with warm, soapy water, allow it to dry, and replace it for the next time. If you have a little girl, the princess potty chair is definitely worth serious consideration.
