The Potette Plus travel potty system is something I want to shout about simply because I think it’s fantastic – not because I’ve been asked to write a review. I would recommend it without reservation to anyone about to start potty training, or who has recently finished potty training.
We bought one way before we started potty training the twins, but totally forgot about it at the beginning of potty training so I was lugging about a normal potty and a trainer toilet seat whenever we left the house. That, together with spare clothes for both kids meant that I was always laden down like a packhorse.
I remembered the Potette Plus and packed it for a long day trip to the zoo with a friend, who luckily had her own and was able to show me how to use it when Fonz suddenly declared next to the leopards that he needed a wee.
The Potette Plus has a clever multifunctional design that means it can be used as a potty or a toilet trainer seat when you’re out and about.
To use it as a potty you simply click the legs into place and attach one of the bags which have an absorbent pad on the bottom so that it soaks up all the wee just like a nappy. Once used, you just take the bag off, tie the handles together and pop it in the nearest bin. We’ve had no leaks at all with these bags, even when I *may* have forgotten about them and left them in my rucksack for a day or two.
To use as a trainer seat, the legs flip out to sit on the edge of an adult toilet seat. Ez and Fonz flatly refuse to sit on a standard toilet without a trainer seat so this has been invaluable when we’re out and about.
The Potette Plus is light and compact, comes in its own plastic bag and easily fits into a rucksack.
The only negative I can possibly think of is that you do have to buy new bags – these cost around £11.99 for 30 and I usually buy them on Amazon.
Our Potette Plus cost around £14.99 from Amazon.
Get one. They’re blooming great.
