When my son was a year and a half I just got him a potty chair that doubled as a little stool and asked him to sit down on it, but he pulled it up in front of the toilet instead and that was the last time he wore a diaper of any kind. His bathroom was decorated in kid style with posters, cushy dinosaur seat for the toilet and a magazine rack with his Disney mags and Dr. Seuss books though so it had a fun atmosphere. He had initiated it when he began removing his diaper and wanting out of it at the first sign on moisture. There is no set time where you HAVE to get them potty trained. Offer opportunities to be a "big boy" or "big girl" and make a big deal out of showing how happy you are with your little one for trying.
