I found a great value at Big Lots on a "Kandoo" potty package. Included was a potty seat to go on the toilet, a step stool, and some reward tattoos. Having recently purchased just a potty seat for around $12, I felt that getting a step stool and reward tattoos for another couple of bucks was a great bonus!

When we got home, my son and I eagerly opened the box to put his seat on the toilet and take it for a test run. I was shocked to see that the seat was in three pieces and had to be assembled. Quite odd, but we put it together. There's a little backrest that I suppose could be handy if my son were big enough to take up the whole seat and need to relax against it.

It was easy enough to put together - however it is equally as easy to take apart, and that seems to be my son's favorite pastime in the bathroom. So that's one negative to it, you have to keep putting it together so that it can be used. The seat itself seems comfortable, it's an easy to clean plastic, and is a bright purple color with green accents.

And that's about it for the positives of this seat. The biggest turn-off is that there's no splash guard!! It's supposedly "built in" however the little rise of plastic that I'm assuming they're talking about does nothing to guard against splashes. And, being the busy mom that I am, I have no desire to scrub the bathroom after every trip. It may work better for girls, but if you have a boy, definitely do not buy this seat!

At least the step stool is nice and sturdy, it has been used quite a bit for hand washing, however I had to purchase another seat, making my great deal at $14.99 turn into a not so great deal and a very expensive step stool!
