Oh seat on top of a real potty!! Who wants to wash out bowls of poo and pee?! Noooo thank you! I have also found that with the small potty chairs is that kids become attached to them and don't want to transition to the big pot. Even if the kiddo is afraid of the toilet, still get the seat, they will learn its really not scary! Get one that is cushioned and has handles!

just depends on the child. My first two kids loved sitting on the big potty. half the time they didn't even want the seat that went on top. My youngest is almost two and we have been casually using a potty chair, because he is terrified of the big potty.

I've tried both the potty chair and the tiolet. Can honestly say the only difference is that potty chair requires an extra step, you emptying & cleaning it. The tiolet is easier if you get them to use it, you don't have to take a special sit or something everywhere you go. Just make it fun and they learn quicker!! :)

I've tried both, and it's different for every kiddo. My oldest two liked to be anywhere in the house with their 'special chair', but my youngest two want to be like the big kids. I personally hated cleaning it every time they were successful, dealing with spills or little hands that decided to investigate. My husband likes it, because he was able to see immediately how much they had urinated (which isn't always the easiest thing to do in the regular toilet).

I have used the seat for a step stool more often than nought so they could climb onto the regular toilet, and of course you have the detachable toilet seat.

Good luck!
