Do not buy this for a boy-VERY SHARPFeb 13, 2007
By Sad Mommy
I have a 3 year old son who ended up having to get 11 stitches on his penis because of how sharp this potty seat is. The inside seam, where the top & the bottom molds of the potty seat connect, has a very sharp strip. You'll see it/feel it if you have one.
Anyhow he jumped off cause he was excited that he had gone & then immediately began to scream. I guess his skin got ripped as it scraped against the sharp strip. We spent the day in the emergency room. No parent, yet alone a poor little boy should have to go through this.
THIS POTTY SEAT NEEDS TO BE RECALLED!

Overall a great potty seat.May 06, 2007
By Linda & Jamie
My son really likes this seat. The foam pads on the bottom keep it from slipping so it doesn't really move when he sits down. He also like holding on to the handles (I guess it's a security thing). The built in shield in the front isn't very tall, but we haven't had any problems with it. My son gets on and off easily which he might not be able to do with a bigger shield. The only reason I'm giving it 4 start instead of 5 is that's it's a little harder to clean than the one piece seats. You have to take it apart to clean between the two pieces. It's not difficult to do though. The two pieces just snap apart, you clean them, then you snap them back together. This is clearly explained in the instructions, so if you read them you won't have any problems with the odors the other reviewer complained about.
In regards to the reviewer whose son cut himself on the seat... I just carefully checked my son's seat and there are no sharp edges anywhere. We also have this seat at the grandparents house and I haven't noticed anything sharp when I've cleaned that one either. That person must have gotten a defective one. I wouldn't avoid the seat because of that one incident, just check your seat carefully before you use it - just in case.
Overall, I think this is a great training seat.

Urine CatcherDec 02, 2007
This toilet seat may sit on your toilet and look nice (they can sit comfortably and hold on) the only problem is, it catches quite a bit of the urine between the two pieces. Definitely not worth it. Might as well have a little potty to clean up instead.

LOUSEY!! DEFINATELY NOT FOR A BOY! COMES APARTJun 29, 2008
By R. Sutphin
Bought this at the store for my grandson to use while visiting. Problems: 1) not secure on elongated toilet seat because the insert/lip is narrow and it doesn't set deep enough into the elongated toilet seat, moves easily and has potential for nasty tumbles off the toilet when child attempts to get on/off seat; 2) the soft plastic ring easily comes out of the blue frame with just a little wiggling around, again not very "safe", 3) you have to be sure to take it apart and clean it thoroughly after each use because urine and feces can get between the soft plastic ring and the frame, also there is a seam in the soft plastic ring that allows urine and feces to become trapped and is very difficult to clean. DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS PRODUCT!

Good price & convientNov 20, 2007

"Kailea & Jack's mom"
I actually bought 2 of these when my daughter was training. She did so much better on the 'big' toilet than the small ones. BONUS - using the ring has way less mess to clean each time! We left one at Grandma's house & 1 for home. They fit fine on our oblong seats & just as secure on Grandma's traditional round seat. However we make sure to pull the seat all the way forward on ours so that the 'gap' is in the back not the front, it is less stable when pushed back.
Once she got a bit bigger & more secure holding herself on the 'big' seat, she stopped using it.
We recently pulled i out again for our son who also loves it, The security of the handles on the side has been a bonus for both our kids! The downside for a boy is the 'deflector' is very small & doesn't do very much, however we have just taught him how to make sure he is 'pointed down' every time he sits & begins to pee.
I have noticed the seam between the top & bottom & can see how maybe it could be rough! Ours just broke in that spot.. .i think from storing it & having other things stacked on top of it. Even so, I wouldn't hesitate to spend money on it again.
It is light weight (kids can put it on & off by themself) & easy to clean. I have not had any problem with urine collecting between base & seat, but I always 'tilt' it after their done to make sure.
