Toilet Buddies Review and Giveaway!



When exploring the internet for new and exciting new potty training products for the Potty Time Party I came across Toilet Buddies! Toilet Buddies work by getting your child interested in the toilet. The designs are placed on the toilet by velcro so they are removable and can be used as a reinforcer. Each time your child uses the potty you can add a piece to the toilet until you have the whole animal design.

Toilet Buddies are intended to reduce toilet anxiety in young children. They recommend that you start using toilet buddies when your child is 18-19 months old. Toilet Buddies hopes to add fun and humor to potty training.

Toilet Buddies have two face cutouts. One for the back of the toilet and the other for inside the lid. The animal cutout for the lid has his eyes closed to provide privacy to the child while she potties! They have multiple awards and have been featured on Dr. Phil!

Our Opinion of Toilet Buddies . . .

Toilet Buddies are simple to apply. Set up only takes a few minutes. Since they are applied with velcro they are easy to remove if you are having company coming over. I personally think my "Gatago Giraffe" will be a great conversation starter for my company, but others may not feel the same way. You can wipe them clean with ease so no need to worry about that!

The first time Brea saw "Gatago Giraffe" she said "cool." She has asked to go to the potty more often then she did prior the toilet buddies and usually runs to the bathroom with "Gatago Giraffe". Usually we use the opposite bathroom so that is significant. Before Toilet Buddies she would cry everytime I would set her on the "big potty," but since applying "Gatago Giraffe" it hasn't seemed to upset her. So I would have to say that Brea really likes her "Gatago Giraffe"

Toilet Buddies have multiple different animal designs and I am sure that there is something for everyone!

I think my granddaughter would like Puddles Puppy but they are all just so gosh darn cute. I myself like Gotago Giraffe, of course I'm sure she would love them all. I'm thinking of starting to potty train her since I babysit her daily and winning this would be very beneficial, not to mention a great conversation piece LOL
