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.
