When my daughter began showing signs of being ready for potty training, I picked up this Safety 1st potty chair. I admit that I'm cheap and this was the least expensive option. She immediately took to it and began to use it, so I was happy.
This chair comes in four pieces, not including the lid that is attached to the base. I hate things that come in too many pieces, and this is on the edge. But, it is not very hard to clean despite all the parts. There is a blue foam ring that comes off that makes the seat cushy. It has a little cup on the front that faces downward for girls, and upwards for boys.
It is sturdy and does not slip on the bathroom tile. It doubles as a footstool, which is nice, because my daughter has used it as a stool when going on the big potty.
This potty chair has NO bells or whistles anywhere. I have heard that sometimes fun things like music or fake flushing noises can make kids want to use their potty more. The initial appeal of having her own potty has worn off for my daughter, so perhaps I will be seeking out a new potty with a few bells and whistles because this one now sits in the corner unused.
