Potty training is a hoot. Some little ones are absolutely ecstatic at the idea of graduating beyond diapers and moving on to big-kid territory. Others? Well, not so much.
One way that you can make this process slightly less intimidating for those — shall we say — less than enthused toddlers is by introducing a small and cute (yes, we said “cute!”) training toilet. They are low to the ground and easy to use — so they give your pint-size pooper the confidence boost they need to succeed in this exciting but somewhat scary stage.
Ready to purchase a pint-size potty for your powder room? We have rounded up the best potty-training chairs that you and your itty-bitty will love. Oh, and they are all priced under $25 — no need to flush your money away on this item!
