Different Types of Potty Seats

There are a few things to consider when selecting kids potty seats because there are many types of potty seats available. I will briefly outline my experiences with various potty seats and let you draw you own conclusions.

When we were potty training my son Colin, we tried a number of different potty seats out. Naturally potty seats are easy test out when you work for Ginsey. My son is pretty big for his age so we encountered some interesting obstacles when he was being potty trained.

Potty Chairs
In case you don’t know a potty chair is a little seat about the height of a step stool. Your child makes #1 or #2 in the potty and then you dump it out. My wife was opposed to this form of potty training because she didn’t like the idea of cleaning up poop from yet another surface. I understand that but some of my friends, especially those with petite little girls have had great success with a potty chair.

Foam Cushioned Potty Seats
We tried this style out and it seemed to work really well for making #2. My son is a big kid so the built in “splash guard” didn’t work very well because he just peed over top of it and made a mess. I don’t think this would be an issue with a smaller kid who sits deeper in the seat. We used the foam cushioned seat for #2 and we uses the Sesame Street step stool for making #1 and it worked well…Until he relapsed!

Air Cushioned Potty Seats
Well our son relapsed a bit and wet back to going in his pants. He said he didn’t like his potty seat and that it hurt. That is when we pulled out the Elmo Air Cushioned Potty Seat. This seat was perfect for his larger size. He found it very comfortable and like all kids he loves Elmo. The air cushioned seat allows a bigger kid a bit more “hiney room” and really lets them “sink in” to do their business. Thanks to the Elmo potty seat and a Sesame Street step stool my son is fully potty trained today.

Going to the bathroom has never been more fun for children who use the Sesame Street Elmo Potty Seat. Learning to use a toilet can be scary for children, but this comfortable and welcoming potty seat makes the transition much easier.

Not only will using this cushy Elmo Potty Seat be a thrilling experience for your kids, but it will also make clean up a breeze for you because of the potty seat’s removable cushion. Both designs are equipped with a built-in deflector to make sure everything stays in the toilet.

Elmo Air Cushioned Potty Seat

This Sesame Street Elmo Potty Seat is air cushioned and is slightly larger than our traditional soft potty training seats. I own this potty seat and have used it quite successfully while potty training my son Colin. He was a late starter to say the least and he is also pretty big for his age. The other potty seats we tried with him were simply too small and uncomfortable. This Elmo potty seat seemed to be a bit larger and allowed him to and do his business in much more comfort. Another benefit for older kids is that this potty seat does not feature a large “splash guard” but rather a smaller deflector. I know that many parents love the splash guard built into our other products but my son was a bit older and found it to be intrusive because of his larger size.

My wife really liked that that the top (blue portion) of the seat could be removed for easy cleaning. I am very pleased with this product and would recommend it to any potty training parent, especially those with older children.
