I agree, if she is showing interest and wants to use the potty let her try. Give her lots of praise for success ( a little potty dance is good) and don't worry about accidents.

Go for it! Don't use any pressure, but give it a try,. She may take to it for a while, or just want to sit on it like mommy and daddy. Hell, she may go a few times, and just stop after that. Be prepared for all of it. Go with her to the store, and have her help pick out her own special potty, it may encourage her to use it....but she just may like to sit on it. It does take a while usually.

Just try a gentle no pressure approach.
