What to buy
When my son was young, he was crazy about Thomas the Train. He HAD to have his 6 friends everywhere he went (Thomas, Edward, Henry, Gordon, James and Percy)…to the store, bed, bath. So when I started to potty train him, I knew what he wanted..TRAINS! At the time, there was not alot out there, so we had to improvise. I used Thomas wall stickers and put them all over his potty chair and bathroom wall. He loved it! And in his treasure chest, I tried to find as many inexpensive train items I could. (We ended up will a lot of train stickers!)
Just released this week on potty training concepts, Little Dora Potty Chair!
For the older generation, we were toilet trained using a wooden potty chair. This wooden potty chair comes in multiple colors and can even be personalized! So whether you are looking to bring back some childhood memories or just looking for one of the largest potty chairs on the market, this potty chair could be right for you and your family.

One of Dr. Phil’s original episodes is how to potty train your child. He is using a combination Potty Training In One Dayand Potty Party Kit. He uses a wet on demand doll to demonstrate the appropriate potty training behavior. By talking the stages through with the child, keeping the child interest and having the child "teach" the doll how to pee in the potty. By having the child "teach" the doll they are really learning themselves. I strongly recommend anyone starting potty training, find a method and be consistent! I have included a link below of a clip from that episode:
Most potty training books for children fit into two categories:
INSTRUCTIONAL books that introduce the skills needed to master the potty; and those that are primarily ENTERTAINING, for children who understand what is supposed to happen on the potty, but need extra time to make it happen.
Potty Training Concepts has a great selection of potty books for children.
