Some toddlers prefer a potty that is closer to their size when they start potty training. Potty chairs make it easy for toddlers to get to the toilet on their own, and some are made in fun designs so they encourage kids to use them. These potty chairs are some of the best available, and come in a variety of styles and prices to meet your needs.
The modern style of Boon's Potty Bench will fit in to any family's bathroom. It has all of the features any toddler needs for potty training, including a built-in toilet paper holder and a flexible splash guard, plus it's convenient for parents thanks to the pull-out drawer for cleanup. The side drawers have space for storing any potty training supplies you may need. When the Potty Bench is all folded up, it makes a step stool that even adults can safely use. About $30.
Baby Bjorn's Potty Chair is a perennial favorite among parents, thanks to its basic design and fun colors. The high back gives toddlers a place to rest comfortably, which can be important, since sometimes potty training involves a lot of long waits on the potty chair. If your toddler gets distracted by lights and sounds, a simple potty chair like this one from Baby Bjorn may be a great choice. About $25.
A toddler-size version of the grown-up potty just might encourage your little one to get started with potty training. The potty lid moves up and down, the flushing handle clicks when you push it, and when your toddler is successful at using this potty chair, there are songs and encouraging phrases as a reward. A toilet paper holder on the side means your child can always spare a square, too. You can use this potty chair on the floor initially, but it also converts to a potty seat to be used atop the regular toilet. About $35.
If your toddler needs the bright lights and big noises to encourage potty training, the Jack Potty from Safety 1st might be the potty chair for you. The back of the potty chair looks like a slot machine, including a big red handle that can be pulled to make the shapes spin and the lights flash. This allows the child to have some fun with the potty at the beginning of the potty training process, and also lets them know what's going to happen when they do finally make a successful visit to the Jack Potty, since the lights and sounds are also on a sensor. The seat ring comes off to become a potty seat for the regular toilet. About $30.
In the "completely over the top, but maybe effective" category, these royalty-theme potty chairs have a photo frame built into the back so your toddler can clearly lay claim to the potty empire. The princess version has a sweet pink and lavender color scheme, while the prince throne is done up in navy and burgundy. The center of the throne has a cutout with a removable bowl. A little tab on the bowl matches up with a cutout on the front of the potty chair so it's easy to get the bowl out when needed. When potty training is through, the throne can be used as a regular chair, which is nice, since it costs about $60.
