Product Review for the Fisher Price Froggy Potty

When you’ve decided to start potty training your little one, it can be difficult to decipher which potty to purchase. With such an abundance of potties on the market, it can be hard to figure out, which is the best fit for you and your child. There are themed potties, musical potties and transitional potties to choose from.

Fisher-Price Training Toddler Potty Froggy – $11.69

This particular potty is one of the most inexpensive potties on the market. Some potties can be upwards of $40, which can be expensive when considering the potty will only be in use for a short period of time. Before you know it, your little one will be too big to use a potty and will quickly move on to the standard toilet.

While some potties have a built-in lid, toilet paper roll holder and even stool attachments, this particular potty comes with two simple parts. The base of the potty has a cut-out interior for a drop-in removable bucket. The removable bucket allows for easy cleaning and there are no tricky clips or snaps to deal with.

Instead of having a clip-on removable pee guard; the front of the potty is designed to guard against any sprays with a built-in guard. This is a great feature for little boys because a removable pee-guard can be a hassle with inquisitive minds. Many little boys find the clip intriguing, and it can be a hassle for parents to try to keep little hands away from the guard attachment. However, the Fisher-Price Training Toddler Potty Froggy eliminates this problem.

The removable bucket has two sides handles that make it comfortable and stable for your little one, and also easy to use for removing for clean-ups. The froggy design is great for girls and boys and adheres to a common kid’s bathroom theme that can be better than the fleeting preferences of children with ever-changing favorites in cartoon characters.

There are some issues that arise with this potty, but the degree in how much it is bothersome is completely dependent on the individual. The actual seat of the potty is not cushioned or padded. This can be an advantage to some parents because there are no seams or gaps in the padded cushion and holder, which can trap in grime and can be difficult to clean. However, other parents find that they would prefer a padded seat for their little one to offer more comfort.

Another issue that can arise is the fact that there are no-slip  guard protectants on the bottom of the actual base. While the potty is definitely sturdy enough to sit on its own and provide a stable surface, adventurous kids can sometimes scoot and slide the base from its initial position. This can be bothersome to parents needing to leave their child on the potty for an extended period of time, or for children who like privacy when they are on the potty. However, you can purchase slip guard covers for the bottom of the potty base, and it will alleviate this problem.

The Fisher-Price Training Toddler Potty Froggy is an overall great option for those looking for a child’s first potty. It is relatively inexpensive, comes with an easy-to-use design and has many of the features parents look for when deciding on a potty.
