Description: (There is a newer less expensive version of this I have the link below)
I love this product! The Cheer For Me Potty sings when the little ones go in it, it also clicks when they “flush” the handle. Those of you who have potty trained know the importance of getting to one quickly when the little one shows signs! I tucked this potty away in a quiet corner of our family room and it works great! We sang the songs together when she used it and she loved it. Fisher-Price has many different potty’s available, so pick one that you think will interest your child. The newest version of this potty lights up as well as sings.
I kept it available for her to use for a long time so that she wouldn’t have to get me to take her to the bathroom. It helped to give her independence to be able to go more or less all on her own.
It is really easy to clean too. Just lift out the pan and pour into the toilet.
Assembly Time: None, it does take batteries although we have been using it regularly for over a year and have never had to change them.
Value for Money: I paid around $30 for ours and I wouldn’t pay more, however we used it regularly for well over a year and it still works great. Great Value!
Age Appropriateness: If you are ready to start potty training then this is appropriate!
Durability: It is a plastic construction and seems pretty durable. I don’t have any concerns about it lasting.
Educational Value: Potty training is an important step. It can’t be rushed or forced. Here is a great link to get ideas on how to start with your child.
I also liked this article on Positive Reinforcement Potty Training. The Author is a former animal trainer and took the same approach to potty training as I did. It is great advice!
