When my husband and I saw this potty seat, it actually inspired us to get serious about training our son. It looked like it would be so much fun and would be the perfect potty seat to motivate him. Well we were right in that he loved all the bells and whistles that this potty seat comes with. It plays fun sones, has a talking lid and singing toilet paper and the toilet 'flushes' when you use the handle.
The problem with this is that my son really saw this as a toy, rather than a potty! He loved playing with it, putting all his stuffed animals on it etc... but he never took it 'seriously' (for lack of a better word).
And a couple of times when we did get him to sit on it, the potty 'sensors' rewarded him with a "You did it!!"...but he didn't!
I do think that it helped in that it made him less initimidated by the whole 'potty process' but his actual potty training came with a simple basic potty that he knew had one purpose only!
