Time To Potty Train With the Kolcraft Elmo Adventure Potty Chair Review & Giveaway

Photobucket
When it comes to potty training, I have to admit I have not had much luck. I have two boys and, from my experiences, boys are definitely extremely difficult to train. This time around, I am determined to make potty training as painless as possible and fun for Liam, too!

There are certain TV shows Liam could watch all day, including Sesame Street, and when he saw the new Kolcraft Elmo Potty at Target, it immediately expressed interest. Was this his way of telling me he would start using teh potty? How could I not get it out as soon as possible for him to try?

Yes, Liam is a huge Sesame Street fan and, of course, loves Elmo. He already had one Elmo potty, but a part got lost when we moved, so I was very excited to receive this one. With Josiah, we just had a plain potty, which was not fun and did not really intrigue him at all or encourage him to use it. The Kolcraft Elmo Adventure Potty Chair is just the opposite! This adorable potty is perfect for little ones attempting to use the potty, especially for those who are fans of Elmo. Decorated with Elmo and his little fish, Dorothy, in a aquarium themed scene, the potty is cute and fun for little one.
A very proud boy on his new potty!
What I love about this potty is that it looks so much like a real toilet! I think this is such a great potty and will help him eventually transition to using the grown-up potty one day. The seat looks similar to a real toilet seat and there is even a flush handle on the potty. Liam loves to flush the toilet, so this was a huge point of interest for him. He absolutely loves the handle! Plus, it emulates using a real toilet because he can go through all of the motions from using the potty to flushing just as he will with the big potty when he gets older.

How is Liam doing with potty training? Well, this weekend something clicked with Liam. Before, he was dead set against potty training. I've tried everything... besides the Elmo potty, anyways. I got this out of the box, put it in the bathroom and the next morning he was talking about using the potty with his grandma. She asked if he wanted to go sit on the potty and he said yes... and he used the potty for the first time!!! I cannot believe it! I knew he was ready to use the potty and I suppose his new Elmo potty gave him the incentive to do so. With the Kolcraft Elmo Adventure Potty Chair, we've definitely reached a turning point in the training. He shows much more interest in sitting on the potty and, each time we go into the bathroom- be it for brushing teeth or getting in the bathtub, he wants to sit on it. Since using the potty on Saturday, he has continued to do so several times a day. I'm such a proud Mama and I know he is super proud, too. That's why he is smiling in the pictures I took of him on the potty.

Now that you've heard all about the new Kolcraft Elmo Adventure Potty Chair, how about a giveaway?
